I've scoured this forum, the iTunes App Store and the rest of the web and can't find a definitive answer to the question:
Can I sync Outlook 2007 Contacts, Calendar, Tasks (with categories) and Notes (with categories) with the new iPhone 3G S?
I make full use of NetCentrics' Outlook add-in, including categorised Tasks for my projects and next actions and categorised Notes for things like checklists. Outlook is the centre of my GTD system, even though I'm using a Mac (yeah yeah, I know...).
I'd like to be able to extend this to my portable world, i.e. a smartphone. My current Nokia 6220 Classic doesn't quite handle the Tasks and Notes well enough, although it mostly does the job.
From what I can see:
- iTunes itself deals with syncing the Contacts and Calendar between PC and iPhone
- To sync Tasks and Notes, you need to run a separate iPhone App such as MyChapura (soon to be discontinued), iMExchange, iMTasks, TaskTask, iTaskPro or iMLite Viewer.
Can anyone shed any more light on this and tell me whether or not the iPhone will do what I need?
If not, I'll look to some of the others. However, after my day-long test of a Palm Treo 750 I had trouble syncing Notes; ActiveSync insisted that the Notes had changed on both phone and PC, even though they'd changed only on the PC.
