Sync the HTC EVO 4G with your PC

The brand new HTC EVO 4G, out June 4 on Sprint, is quite the landmark phone. It boasts a huge screen, top of the line specifications that make Android fly, and the first 4G data connection for high-speed internet access. Early reviews have been overwhelmingly positive, and it looks like the HTC EVO 4G will set the bar for the next generation of mobile devices.

DejaOffice is a suite of super-charged calendar, contacts, tasks and notes apps for the EVO 4G.

DejaOffice is available from the Android Market at no charge, just search the Market for “DejaOffice” on your EVO 4G.

DejaOffice works with CompanionLink to sync data from your PC. CompanionLink can sync the EVO 4G with Outlook, Lotus Notes, ACT! by Sage, Palm Desktop and more. Sync either direct via USB or wireless through Google. Download a 14-day free trial here.

Introducing DejaOffice for Android

CompanionLink is proud to announce DejaOffice for Android, a mobile office application suite for Android-powered devices.

DejaOffice for Android

DejaOffice contains robust contacts, calendar, tasks and notes apps that allow users to efficiently view, enter, update and manage contact and schedule information from their phone. Advanced features such as categories, custom fields, search across all data types, sort options, expense tracking, and linking of contacts to calendar items are included in the app. DejaOffice augments the Android contacts and calendar databases with enhanced functionality, and also offers robust tasks and notes apps originally missing from the Android platform.

Many business professionals are upgrading to the latest smartphones only to find that they are becoming increasingly consumer-oriented, and lack required business functionality. Many users, especially those coming from old Palm phones like the Treo or Centro, are dismayed when they upgrade to a newer platform and lose features and functions. DejaOffice is a solution to fill that gap, and bring Android devices more in line with how PC business software works.

DejaOffice works seamlessly with CompanionLink’s PC desktop synchronization and backup software. This allows two-way sync with applications such as Microsoft Outlook, Lotus Notes, GoldMine, GroupWise, ACT! by Sage and Palm Desktop. The DejaOffice app is currently available at no charge from the Android Market. More information is available at www.dejaoffice.com.

UPDATE: Problems with USB Sync with the HTC DROID INCREDIBLE? Make sure you have a memory card.

CompanionLink recently announced support for sync with the new HTC DROID INCREDIBLE. Since its release on Thursday, a small number of users are experiencing problems with the USB sync. The problem has to do with the fact that CompanionLink syncs data to the MicroSD memory card in the device. Previous Android devices have included a memory card out of the box, while the DROID INCREDIBLE does not. Users experiencing this issue can resolve this immediately by inserting a memory card into their DROID INCREDIBLE. CompanionLink will release an update shortly that will allow Android devices without a memory card to use the device’s internal memory to hold sync data. More information, as well as a 14-day trial of the desktop sync software, can be found at www.companionlink.com/phones/htc-incredible.html

The newest Android phone on the market is the HTC DROID INCREDIBLE with HTC Sense UI.  This beast features all the latest hardware, including an 8-megapixel camera and a 1GHz Snapdragon processor. The DROID INCREDIBLE sports a 3.7″ AMOLED screen, and runs Android 2.1. The DROID INCREDIBLE comes with HTC Sync out of the box to synchronize contacts and calendar with Microsoft Outlook. CompanionLink extends the sync functionality of the DROID INCREDIBLE by offering full support for contacts, calendar, tasks and notes, as well as the option for wireless sync.

CompanionLink synchronizes from PC to the DROID INCREDIBLE in two ways – secure wired sync and automatic wireless sync via Google. CompanionLink’s wired USB sync with DROID INCREDIBLE works through an Android app that runs on the phone.  The app has custom calendar, tasks, and notes modules, while contacts sync to the native contact database on the DROID INCREDIBLE.  CompanionLink’s wireless sync to DROID INCREDIBLE via Google lets people sync contacts and calendar data to Google, which then syncs to the phone through its wireless data connection.  Two-way sync is supported in both methods so that changes made on the phone are updated on the PC upon synchronization.

PC software such as Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Business Contact Manager, IBM Lotus Notes, ACT! by Sage, Novell GroupWise, and Palm Desktop are supported.  CompanionLink also supports the newest 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Outlook 2010.
