"Works most of the time, provides rare critical function"

July 11, 2015  |  By dnetNuby

 |  Version: AkrutoSync 4.0.19

Pros

It bypasses the cloud. It takes security seriously. It provides good logging. The support is responsive.

Cons

CAVEAT: My problems may be due to Nightly version of CyanogenMod 12, as there is no Milestone version for Moto G (1st generation). Basically, AkrutoSync will simply fail because of certain calendar items. Ostensibly due to changes made on the phone, but the only changes I make on the phone is to postpone notifications or dismiss notifications. The failure happens about 25% of the time, and I basically have to delete and recreate the account on the phone in order to sync again.. Note that this 75% success rate is achieved with special measures, i.e. iterative repair of the PST file on the computer until no problems are present. However, anyone who uses the Microsoft repair tool will know that *any* usage of the PST file even just by Outlook induces imperfections that need repair. It is almost as if "repair" is a euphimism for "compact".

Summary

It is the best product on the market, according to my research. It has a 75% success rate for me if I take special precautions taken. However, I would not go for an alternative because AkrutoSync places emphasis on security and bypassing the cloud.

Keeps your data local to your PC, no cloud needed

Takes a little time to set up initially but then works without further user involvement

"Old fuddy duddy gets to keep his Outlook"

December 22, 2014  |  By greatbrit

 |  Version: Akruto Sync For Android and Windows Phone 3.0.46

Pros

perfectly syncing my Outlook calendar, contacts, tasks and notes (via a 3rd party install)

Cons

nothing yet, other than put it in the tray on the PC please

Summary

I know I should give up my Outlook and move to something like Evernote, but I've used it for years and it does exactly what I want it to do. So when I got my Samsung S5 I knew the end was near, until I found this little Akuto gem. It installed flawlessly, moved across everything (I had to add a 3rd party software to get notes to work), works perfectly.

I recommend loading this onto a new phone before you start adding contacts as the install prefers to start off with a clean contact list. I only had a few so I manually entered them into Outlook, then deleted all of them from the phone.

Only gripe is that I don't like having Arkuto sitting in the start bar, it should be able to reside in the tray. Another post mentions there is an app to make that happen.

I actually paid the $24 to keep this one, so worth it.

"Great Software, but needs a little work"

October 16, 2014  |  By Rev_Art

 |  Version: Akruto Sync For Android and Windows Phone 3.0.46

Pros

Sweet easy syncing when it is set up.

Cons

There were some issues when trying to set up my notes from outlook. I had to download a notes app set up an account to make that happen and that took awhile. I also can only sync on my home network because at my office I would need to change my account settings on my phone (which I would need to change back when at home). A small problem; I just need to sync at home only.

Summary

Great program with some small issues that will probably be resolved in the future.

"A Simply Great Product, Microsoft should have included!"

August 31, 2014  |  By abvbynd02

 |  Version: AkrutoSync For Android and Windows Phone 3.2.30

Pros

The product is just flat out simple and awesome. I sync Outlook 2007 with a WP8 Nokia Lumia 920, and a 2nd Samsung Galaxy 5S. All of the Syncing is seemless and wireless between all three and all calendars, and contacts are always up to date. This is a product that Microsoft SHOULD have included from the beginning, but THANK YOU Akruto for filling this void. The best part is no Cloud or Exchange server is needed. This software is awesome and works perfectly all of the time!

Cons

There are none!!!! Eat your heart out Microsoft!

Summary

If you want to wirelessly sync Outlook with WP8 and Android Devices this is the software for you! You'll be happy you purchased it!

"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!

"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!
