CompanionLink launches O2g, a simple app to sync Outlook with Google

CompanionLink is proud to announce O2g, a fast, simple and affordable solution to synchronize Microsoft Outlook with any Google account. O2g delivers complete synchronization of calendar, contacts and tasks between any Google, Gmail, or Google Apps account and Microsoft Outlook 2000 and higher. O2g supports synchronization with the new Outlook 2010 64-bit, in addition to all versions of Palm Desktop.

O2g supports advanced functions such as mapping Outlook contact categories to Google Groups in Google Contacts. If the Google Groups don’t already exist, O2g will automatically create them to match the Outlook categories on the PC. In addition, Outlook tasks can be synchronized to Google Calendar as untimed calendar entries.

Using the free Google Sync service, O2g can synchronize Microsoft Outlook with many popular smartphones, including the Apple iPhone and iPad, BlackBerry, Android, Palm webOS, and Windows Mobile devices. O2g synchronizes Outlook calendar and contact data with Google, and then using Google sync, automatically updates the phone with the latest sync data.

O2g is now available for a one-time cost of $9.99, with a full 90 day guarantee. Support is offered via the official O2g forums, monitored by O2g personnel. For more information on O2g, visit www.o2gsync.com

UPDATE: SD card required for Android USB Sync

Last week, we saw the launch of the HTC Droid Incredible, an impressive new Android handset. The Incredible, as we soon discovered, was the first Android phone launched in the US in which some units did not ship with an SD card (but rather, boasted 8GB of internal memory). This initially presented a few problems, as CompanionLink’s USB sync for Android depends on a memory card being present to store the sync data. CompanionLink is currently evaluating the viability of using the phone’s internal memory to store sync data. To ensure your sync with the Droid Incredible runs without a hitch, make sure you have a microSD inserted into the phone.

MicroSD cards are cheap and readily available – Google should be able to help you track one down.

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
