There seems no end to sync solutions for iPhone. The problem is; they all devolve into Apple-like simplicity.
Face it. We use Outlook because it is fast, effective, and the whole world supports it. It is forced on us by our business, it runs our mail, it runs our appointments, and the less time we can spend there, the more we can do our jobs.
With iPhone, the best known solutions are feeble, at best. With Apple iCloud, you need to create a different Outlook folder and move your data to it. You need to put up with problems with it, with mail and other things. And then, when it gets to iPhone, you have no Tasks any more just reminders.
With Office 365 and the Outlook App you have a different set of problems. It all gets to the phone ok (except for tasks again) but the only thing that is marginally good with the Outlook App from Microsoft is the email. Hello Microsoft: Email is NOT a problem on the iPhone.
So that’s what CompanionLink and DejaOffice are here to do. Synchronize Outlook Contacts, and Outlook Calendar, and Outlook Tasks to the iPhone. Not only to move them, safely and securely, but DejaOffice provides an Outlook-like ecosystem on the iPhone and Android so that you can continue to do Contacts, Calendar, Tasks and Notes just like your PC. So if you want to schedule an appointment, or make a task for a contact, you can do that in one App on your phone.
