Free Android App of the Day - December 2011

 

In order to make things easier to navigate,I'm going to start a new topic each month like Jon does for, keeping your windmill alive and the joke threads. Free links are short lived anyway and will make Navigation short and sweet.

Do you know of a great Android App that is free?
Why not post the link here.

Android App to Sync with Outlook?

Does anyone know of a good application that can be used to sync Microsoft Outlook with an Android phone? A direct connect would be preferred. I tried Companion Link and it was okay, but not reliable. On my last sync it merged and combined outlook contact data. In addition it deleted several contacts. Fortunately I have a backup for a while back, so I will be spending time restoring my contacts. Any assistance or suggestions on reliable Outlook to Android sync applications will be appreciated.

wow..nice.

Thanks for the insite on the walkie talkie feature for the android opt. love it.

Phone manufacture software?

Your phone manufacture does not supply a software for this? Whether it came with the phone or you have to download it. My HTC has "HTC Sync" that I can download from Sprint. It syncs with outlook. Myself I have a Mac so that does not work for me.

To sync contacts I use "Google Sync" myself. Add to one device and the others automatically have it. As for e-mail itself I set myself up to be "BCC" in on every e-mail I send from my device whether it be an Android, Blackberry, or Ipad. In this way I have a copy of the mail I sent.

Not an exact solution but may be something to look into.

Thanks

I have been using Google

I have been using Google Calender Sync, but it is not an app on my cell phone, it does sync my outlook calendar on my PC with my Calendar on my phone. Sure would like to know about an app that does do what you are asking for.

Re: PPT app

I am going to have to try that one once I get a chance. Thanks for the info.

Outlook to Android Sync.

I use Enhanced Email. It will also sync calendar and contacts. I happened to get in on the Amazon App store when it was the free app of the day. It is not at 9.99 (which is a bit expensive). I have seen it on sale for $5 at times, so you can pick it up at half price. The developer does have a trial version available that you can try - see the forum at http://quantumsolutions.us/forum/,

I hope that helps.
