Question Question about PocketMac for BB.

Please Login to Remove!

Does the PocketMac for BB ersion sync the iCal To-Do list with the BB, or just the Stickies? I see that it mentioned Stickies in particular, but I did not see a specific remark about the iCal integrated To-Do list - anyone know from experience? If it does not, then why? Wouldn't that make sense more than the Stickies??? Curious...

Thanks in advance.

My experience with PocketMac has been excellent. It syncs everything it claims to very well. The only thing really missing at this point is an install engine, but it's supposedly being worked on.

I've also notice it catches conflicts better than the PC client did for me. Dunno why this would be, but I've been really happy with it.

Something else to consider (I guess) is that I've been well updated about updates and such from the PocketMac developer, and each upgrade has been a free one.

Default mixed bag for me

I have had pmac since 2002... At first I had serious problems with sync issues. It took a month for the email support to reply to my 5 or 6 emails. If you call the phone number it is of no use. Sales only. if they answer at all. I finally got it to sync. Then I noticed that it would erase address entries... or double them at will. I have prob 350 contacts so I didnt notice at first. I confirmed this behavior with a rudimentory google search. seems it was a known issue with pmac. I stopped using it a year later when I was tired of worrying about it and went to a hosted BES solution. I am much happier knowing my data is safe.
