Why use CompanionLink instead of iCloud for Outlook iPhone Sync


  • Cannot synchronize with your default Outlook Calendar. The iCloud PC app actually creates a new Outlook Calendar instead of working with your default calendar. CompanionLink on the other hand works with your default Outlook Calendar.
  • Stores data in a separate folder forcing you to stop using your default Outlook Folder (PST file) and start using iCloud's Outlook folder. Also, iCloud's folders may not work with other Outlook Add-ins or customized workflows that you have created.
  • Syncs iPhone Contacts and Calendar Groups/Categories to separate calendars in Outlook. Forcing you to open multiple calendars side-by-side. Outlook users generally want Categories to show on the same/single Outlook Calendar view.


  • Syncs Contacts, Calendars, Tasks, Notes, and Journals between Outlook and iPhone with categories.
  • Lets you share Outlook Contacts and Calendar events through a Google account
  • Allows you to maintain a single, cohesive, calendar

This is how iPhone Categories/Groups appear as separate Outlook Calendars when using the iCloud PC app:


CompanionLink lets you view all calendar events on a single Calendar and keeps them separated by color-coded Categories as seen below:
