Business features of Palm OS on your Android

The Verge recently did an excellent write-up on StyleTap’s app that emulates Palm OS on Android devices.  CompanionLink pays much reverence to Palm OS because we got our start with that platform.  However, we’re a strong fan of adopting the new Android OS instead of fighting it.

Bringing business features from Palm OS to Android

Palm OS had simple and functional capabilities for business contact management, calendar scheduling, task management, and note-taking.  We have developed a PalmOS-like business PIM/CRM app for Android.  It’s called DejaOffice and is currently available for free on the Google Play store.  The existence of DejaOffice is rooted in transforming Android devices into business CRM tools that mirror the simplicity and functional themes of Palm OS.  As topping on the cake, we wish to also take advantage of the powerful features of today’s smartphones (GPS, location awareness, etc.).

DejaOffice 2.2 [new feature] – Account management

DejaOffice 2.2 configures as an Account on your phone.  This means you do not need to sync DejaOffice with the existing Contacts accounts to get things like Caller ID to work.  It just works!

This is a big deal for people who previously had problems with the perception of duplicate data.  The problem really stems from synchronizing DejaContacts to the built-in Contacts app on the device. When you did this, there were two sets of records (one in DejaContacts and one in the built-in Contacts app).  You would get the impression that this was one set of data, duplicated.

With our new account management feature, you don’t need to sync to the built-in Contacts app.  This eliminates the perception of duplicate data and cleanly keeps DejaOffice data in it’s own account on the phone.

 

DejaOffice 2.2 will be launching towards the end of Summer 2012. To try a Beta version of the app, visit www.dejaoffice.com/androidapp and click the red button.
