| | Milksync vs Syncje for wireless tasks syncing
Please Login to Remove!
I'm trying to decide which app to go with as far as syncing tasks with my bb tasks wirelessly. I have an account with RTM and mobical and have both apps working on a trial basis. I would like your valued opinions on both products and if you had to choose, which one would you ultimately go with.
Here's my take on the matter: Milksync/RTM works like a dream. I happen to like this a lot as I have Google mail, calendar, and contacts synced wirelessly through BIS/google sync. Bonus, RTM can be added and edited from the google calendar so I do not have to go to another site for editing tasks. Main drawback, milksync costs $25/yr and I'd prefer it if I only pay once for the app. Not a fan of subscription software. Second, it didn't sync past tasks that were entered on my bb before I registered RTM.
SyncJe also works fine. Pay $35 once and be done with it. Can sync contacts, calendar, and tasks but only on their server. Syncs past tasks from the bb to the server though and pushed it to RTM. Main drawback, can't find a way to sync with google apps as I'd like to have one place for all of my wireless syncing needs. Second, it would be another app on my bb in addition to google sync. Third, the free service could go out of business at any time, witness the recession going round the world. This kind of bothers me a bit, but I can ride it out as long as I have weekly backups on my pc thru DM.
Anyone else can chime in and give their take on this? I'm basically looking for a strong hint of which app to go with as I'm going to go with one and dump the other. Just don't know which one though as both are really good. If there are others that do the same thing but can one up these two, let me know so I can check it out.
I've looked at notifysync, zimbra (looks like a winner here as I use linux but its another platform to sync with, argh), rtm4bb (replaces bb tasks, not what I want). I'm not interested in hosted exchange services, because I'm not a fan of subscription fees so that rules those out.
