Does anyone know of a good app that will sync my Outlook Tasks and Notes with my Android 2.1 phone?
NitroDesk Inc. - TouchDown features
nitronotes will do the notes part but it's horribly clunky ...
NitroNote: Notes Syncing - NitroDesk TouchDown | Google Groups
I could not find Notes sync option with NitroDesk.
Evernote has a desktop app and an android app and it is free. It syncs so you have the same on both.
But unfortunately it doesn't tie into the Outlook system
anything else out there besides Nitronote, which has some serious function problems IMO ??
I have been using gsyncit (free version) with Outlook 2010 beta and it syncs these items, but the notes are converted to google documents.
Not sure about notes, but I have been using Toodledo to sync my tasks. You will have to register at Toodledo.com, download the sync app to your computer, and download Toodledroid to your phone.
Tried NitroDesk on HTC Incredible and it didn't work for me, for some reason it did not sync my notes at all.
I use Toodledo for tasks and gave up on syncing notes between outlook and my hero. I use evernote to sync notes with the cloud.
it works fine for me on my desire. you have to follow the instructions to the letter. i've done it almost a dozen times since and i still don't understand what i'm doing.
it goes something like this (i think):
1) run the notes sync app on the phone. i'm guessing that this places a copy of your notes somewhere on the sd card.
2) connect to your pc using usb mode - i think this copies across the data to your pc
3) run the sync program on your pc whilst outlook is NOT running (they forgot to mention this part) which seems to finally update the notes in outlook.
i'm using outlook 2003 by the way ...
Seems there is divided opinions on this. What i really need more importantly is an app that allows me to sync my Outlook tasks with my phone, preferably free. Any one got any good suggestions?
you might want to look a campanionlink.
Sync contacts, calendar, tasks and notes with Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, Palm, Windows Mobile, Outlook and Google | CompanionLink Software
I used it to bring my outlook data to the Incredible. Have not done a second sync yet. Worked ok, a few minor issues with contacts, but its more of understanding how it does the translation.
Downloaded Touchdown today. Really really pleased with how it works.
Now my contacts, calendar and tasks are all sync'd (finally) with my Exchange Outlook server. 20 bucks but really worth it to me.
So far, would HIGHLY recommend it. easiest way to find is just search "touchdown" in apps marketplate on the device. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE KEY FIRST.... you have got to get the software installed.
Other great feature - was able to enter a default custom signature. Also asks if you want to delete e-mails,and has option to not delete e-mails from server.
I've investigated both of these options but they're not really hitting the nail on the head for what i need. In it's simplest form i just a suitable app that sync's with my Outlook tasks and displays them nicely on my phone. I don't want to have to install any new software on my PC as i just want to sync with the Tasks that are already in Outlook.
I really didin't expect this requirement to be so hard to fulfill but perhaps i've stumbled on a little gap in the market.
Can this sync with Outlook via USB cable?
In Android, I cannot see where my tasks are. Can you please clue me in?
I think Google Tasks used with its Phone counterpart app GTasks is a better solution.
I don't think the Android Exchange server supports Tasks, so you'll have to install software on your PC.
I'm curious for an answer to this as well. I see too many bad reviews on CompanionLink about it messing up people's calendars etc. to download it. I am using Google to sync my calendar. All I need is something to sync memos(notes) and tasks.
