    "A quick way to sync for cloud haters. It works!"

    July 02, 2014   |   By kinerettzori

    Version: Akruto Sync For Android and Windows Phone 3.0.46

    Pros

    The interface is easy, and you are in control - you can sync automatically or manually, as often as you like. Easier to use than the Nokia PC Suite was for the non-smartphone phones.

    The program alerts you each time there is a change on your Windows Phone that needs to be updated, so you are never in the dark about when to update.

    Enables synching notes from outlook as well (using Simple Notes app for WP).

    Cons

    The only shortcoming is that it relies on the IP address of your PC and so, for a home user with a changing IP, the address needs to be changed every time your router shuts down (electric outage, whatever). However the software alerts you to this and the update is quick and simple.

    Summary

    The best little application to make life simple and be able to keep data off the cloud. I wish Microsoft had thought about this to begin with!

    "Akruto is AWESOME!!!"

    May 06, 2014   |   By DDean421

    Version: Akruto Sync For Android and Windows Phone 3.1

    Pros

    I believe someone noted earlier that "Akruto just works," and that's a great way to summarize this wonderful app. I don't have to worry: whenever I come into proximity of my desktop machine, my phone connects and syncs - it just works.

    And it syncs with Windows Phone today much like my Windows Mobile phones synced in the heyday of the WM OS: all contacts, calendar events, tasks, notes and eMail sync effortlessly and accurately... WITH NO TRUNCATION OF DATA!

    I have no concerns regarding my data being pumped through the cloud, my data on my phone matches my data on my computer, and synchronization is processed bidirectionally, so that no matter where I edit my data, the latest updates are always published.

    Cons

    None. However, I did have one minor question on the installation process, and found their tech support to be responsive and quite helpful. So I'm sure that if you do encounter problems, they'll be falling over themselves to assist.

    Summary

    I believe Microsoft really did a disservice to their users by discontinuing Windows Mobile before Windows Phone became a mature OS...

    Akruto is the only app I've found (and I've searched tirelessly for months) that bridges the gap in Windows Phone functionality and circumvents Microsoft's cloud paradigm. Many thank, Akruto!

    "GREAT product!!!!"

    March 14, 2014   |   By toddelof

    Version: Akruto Sync For Android and Windows Phone 3.1

    Pros

    Syncs automatically. You don't have to worry about it, it just does it.

    Cons

    Works so good, I would like them to add functionality like syncing my emails and files.

    Summary

    I use this between Outlook 2010 and a Samsung Note 3. It syncs my calendar and contacts. It works great!! And it is trouble free. Never have to touch it. It just syncs automatically.

    "Amazing solution to sync Outlook with mobile devices"

    February 23, 2014   |   By capshawg

    Version: Akruto Sync For Android and Windows Phone 3.1

    Pros

    Akruto Sync works great syncing my Outlook 2007 Calendar with my iPad 2 and my Samsung Note II. Yes, I get a 3-way sync! I researched a full day and unsuccessfully tried several syncing software before I found Akruto Sync Trial Version. The download was quick, easy, and working within minutes. I upgraded before the 7 days expired. A few days later, syncing stalled with a couple of recurring appointments so I sent an email using the Contacts tab on the webpage. Customer Service quickly resolved my issue and even created an updated version of Akruto Sync to resolve the issue within the software. Customer Service was prompt, knowledgeable, personable, and professional. My Calendar is syncing perfectly now on all 3 devices. I highly recommend Akruto Sync to anyone wanting to sync their Outlook with iPad or Samsung smartphone, or BOTH.

    Cons

    I have not found any cons to share. I am using Akruto Sync to link my Calendar and Tasks, but if/when I decide to link Mail and Contacts I do not expect any problems. I feel confident that if a problem occurs I can contact Akruto Sync and receive the support necessary to resolve any problem with this software.

    Summary

    If you are looking for an easy and affordable solution to sync Outlook with a mobile device, just download the trial version. You have nothing to loose and you will be surprised how fast and easy this software works!

    "It's a must have for Windows Phone"

    January 24, 2014   |   By poulidour

    Version: Akruto Sync For Android and Windows Phone 3.0.46

    Pros

    So easy to install and configure. Just works away in the background without you even noticing. I had months of frustration syncing with Microsoft's convoluted and messy system but came across Akruto, tried it and bought it on offer for less than 20 dollars.Money well spent.

    Cons

    None so far

    Summary

    Highly recommended

    "Thank God for Akruto - not Microsoft!"

    January 17, 2014   |   By Holican4

    Version: Akruto Sync For Android and Windows Phone 3.0.46

    Pros

    IT WORKS. It works quite well, actually.
    It is fairly simple and straightforward to install and run. Worth the money!
    It is simple to use and syncs perfectly, in the background, as long as your wifi stays juiced up.
    And if you need support because your ISP technician screws something up, like I did, chances are that you will have one of the Akruto techs walk you through the solution until all is well again. One on one. That is priceless to me. I can put up with all kinds of bugs as long as there is someone there to hold my hand when I need it.

    Cons

    Haven't really found any yet, except that the software is still young and some bugs are bound to pop up now and then.
    Maybe if they could provide a version that would allow sync by wire, but I think Microsoft makes that impossible [thank you stupid Microsoft!]

    Summary

    Akruto is a gift from God for all of us who know that having private information in a cloud is stupid at best. Has anyone heard of the NSA snooping lately?!!!? Chinese hackers? You name it. Our data is safe only with us, close to our chests, and Akruto allows us to maintain that security.
    Akruto has been keeping my data safe for about a year now.
    I hope that this company grows until Microsoft has no choice but to buy them and provide a much more secure wifi synchronisation option for their Windows phones.

    "Akruto sync solved problems I've had for over a month"

    January 13, 2014   |   By CBenson2014

    Version: Akruto Sync For Android and Windows Phone 3.0.46

    Pros

    I'm not a techy, "how to's" were understandable and when I had a question I received quick responses to emails. My issue started when samsung kies forced an update. I've spent hrs on the phone with t-mobile and samsung, went to samsung rep at Best Buy several times, then finally tried several other products. All useless or over my head. Actually ventured out and found this was a known issue, why no one I spoke ever mentioned it infuriates me. Samsung let me and who knows how many out there hanging with no calendar or contacts.

    Cons

    I had an issue with paypal, but they quickly responded, again, to my email and I was up in no time.
    Yes, you do have to delete all contacts and calendar events, which took awhile to figure out how to do on my phone, but I knew my desktop had the most accurate info, so I was fine. I've had to clean up my contacts or calendar after every other kies software sync, so this cleaned all that up too. I haven't had duplicate entries yet, so not sure how it will advise me which to select.

    Summary

    There instructions were clear, pictures helped since I'm not a techy. It works great and I can once again use my smartphone (that was useless other than a phone) as a smartphone again. Read about this product on android tech page. Wish I could find it again and thank the person. Akruto's customer support by email has been great, wish I could get my kids to respond as fast:) Overall they get a 5 from me.

    "Comes with Malware"

    January 08, 2014   |   By ReviewsByDave

    Version: Akruto Sync For Android and Windows Phone 3.0.46

    Pros

    None detectab;e

    Cons

    Connect DLC installs itself when you try to install Akruto.

    Summary

    Disaster

    Updated on Jan 9, 2014

    Looks like the malware happened somehow when I downloaded via download.com, didn't have the same problem when downloading direct from Akruto, might have been user error.

    Worth noting that the first thing Akruto asks you to do for the first sync is to delete your phone contacts so it can start fresh. This isn't much help if, as in my case, phone and outlook are already out of sync thanks to AT&T/Samsung withdrawing sync support when they forced Android 4.3 and Kies 3 onto all customers. Which is why I'm looking for sync software in the first place.

    "With Akruto Sync WP8 is a up to date solution"

    December 25, 2013   |   By Oxen55

    Version: Akruto Sync For Android and Windows Phone 3.0.46

    Pros

    I have been a user of Nokia Communicators for about 10 years. After Nokia missed the smartphone race I choosed HTC and Android. I missed a couple of things which I preferred on my Nokia so now I am back with Nokia Lumia 920. But I did not like to use Skydrive and found a solution with Akruto Sync www.akruto.com. I have used it for nearly a Year and it is a super program. Easy to use and the support from Akruto when I have had question has been outstanding. I got the feeling that they are in the same room if I run in to problems or need an answer on a question. Its really a good team far away from my office in Sweden. Akruto is located outside Boston USA!

    Cons

    There is no from my Points of view since they included notes in the sync

    Summary

    When You are looking for integration and dont want others to know what You have in Your smartphone/lap-top - use this.
