    "It actually works, for a little while, then DOESN'T!"

    June 03, 2014   |   By James_Lxxx

    Version: Android-Sync 1.120

    Pros

    Installed well and worked well for about 6 months.

    Cons

    My computer crashed, so I rebuilt it (Win 7 Pro x64). Same OS, same software, etc. When I reinstalled android-sync it now syncs calendars and tasks, but not notes or contacts. The error is a common MAPI error that can be googled, it has to do with using a local data file call, as opposed to using a global one. I even upgraded my phone to KitKat 4.4... didn't help at all. I opened a ticket with the android-sync people, and even got a Help Desk ticket number... that's all... ever. I kept trying to contact them... crickets! I've worked in IT for 17 years, all I need is a clue from them about what to look at or change, but you'll never get them to answer your email if you have a problem.

    Summary

    Their customer support is non existent. There's a reason the program is currently getting a 2-star rating. If you're lucky enough to get it working in first install, great... if not you'll have to uninstall and look for something else. TRY BEFORE YOU BUY.

    This applies to version 1.130.

    "It actually works!"

    January 16, 2014   |   By TechGuyST

    Version: Android-Sync 1.012

    Pros

    It syncs fine from Outlook to my Galaxy S. Good price too. I can't really fault it. I've been using this app for nearly a year and it seems to work well.

    Cons

    If I weren't spooked by the negative comments from previous users, I thought the product does what it says. On the other hand, it does help to add support contact details.
    Sometimes the contacts are messed up due to new apps such as WhatsApp, etc being installed. This can't be helped as each app is ignorant of the other app. So you just have to be aware of this problem and manually correct them when they occur.

    Summary

    As good as other (more expensive) apps out there. Just need contact details to be included for those having problems.

    NONE DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT UNLESS YOU WANT TO WASTE YOUR MONEY.

    Version: Android-Sync 1.012

    "Unreliable with zero support. DO NOT PURCHASE!"

    June 14, 2013   |   By bmherd

    Version: Android-Sync 1.012

    Pros

    If it worked, a relatively lightweight way to sync notes and contacts from Outlook to Android. IF IT WORKED.

    Cons

    Totally unreliable. Does not reliably sync contacts. Often created duplicates while at the same time not syncing many contacts. Tech support simply does not exist as far as I can tell. You get an automated email, but never EVER any real response. I currently have FOUR Case IDs, assigned by those automated emails, but have never EVER gotten any response to the cases. No ability to contact other than that email, which effectively means no ability to contact.

    Summary

    This is a reprehensible company with terrible support apparently interested in nothing other than marketing a product which is effectively vaporware, and for which they have absolutely no ability or willingness to support. It is one of my worst purchases in history, and I've been trying to get a refund. Unfortunately, they simply do not respond. Under no circumstances should any person ever consider any product associated with this product, or this vendor.

    "Drivers don't work - no response from tech support"

    June 03, 2013   |   By sarje70

    Version: Android-Sync 1.012

    Pros

    Ran smoothly. Worked the first time I installed it. Looks like I'd be able to access the files on my external hard drive without having to have the software installed... which is exactly what I was looking for.

    Cons

    I had another program that stopped working after I installed this program. This application didn't appear in my programs menu, so the only way I could uninstall it was to do a system restore - which was a real bummer. After I uninstalled it, it wouldn't install correctly, stating that the drivers weren't installed correctly, although I didn't do anything different the 2nd time. The default solution was to download and install the current version of the drivers - which I did, even though I didn't have to the first time. Next was an email to tech support. That was on 5/28 and I haven't had a response as of today, 6/3 (and it's 7pm). Note: we spanned a weekend and a holiday, so it's only been 3 days. So, I'm only deducting half a star for that. The backup seemed to take forever, and it does't have a status bar to give you an idea of how much longer it will be.

    Summary

    It's impossible to tell if this product really works until you need to do a restore. I was disappointed because at the onset it gave me high hopes. But it ended up being fatally problematic and a program that I don't trust. I found a better one.

    "ANDROID-SYNC WORKS AWESOME !!"

    March 24, 2013   |   By SingerAZ123

    Version: Android-Sync 1.012

    Pros

    I prefer to have local back-ups of my contacts & calender. This program was easy to install, had good directions and did a flawless sync with my Outlook contacts, calender, etc. I am using the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

    Cons

    I had a bit of a problem obtaining my license key at first, they must be on a much different time zone than the U.S., but I did get my key a day later and the program worked great!

    Summary

    VERY HAPPY with this program. Gives the ability to keep my contacts out of the cloud and backed up locally to my computer using Outlook. Great job to the developers!!

    "Doesn't work"

    March 17, 2013   |   By schnegcj

    Version: Android-Sync 1.012

    Pros

    Absolutely awful.

    Cons

    Doesn't work with my Motorola Droid Razor Maxx HD. Cannot locate a business name or address, therefore cannot get Better Business Bureau to complain.

    Summary

    Don't waste your money!!!

    "This is the app I've been looking for!"

    March 02, 2013   |   By dewidavid

    Version: Android-Sync 1.01

    Pros

    Seamless sync with Outlook
    Similar to BlackBerry Desktop
    Clean transfer of all calendar and contact data
    Easy to install
    Does exactly what it claims -- no problems

    Cons

    A bit pricey
    No bells or whistles

    Summary

    This is a terrific utility app. I'm using ver. 1.022, released on 2/22/13. I switched from BlackBerry to Android two months ago and have had weeks of frustration at not being able to sync with Outlook where I have extensive calendar and contact data. Though this app had virtually no reviews, it sounded like what I needed, so I bought it. After five days and numerous syncs, I recommend it without any reservation. Let's get the word out on this app!

    "fustrating"

    November 27, 2012   |   By stevefigo

    Version: Android-Sync 1.01

    Pros

    easy install and configuration
    sort of works

    Cons

    - why do you HAVE to have a second configuration account on Android-sync or google or samsung? why not just do something simple like iTune? just sync outlook and the phone?

    - why not have an obvious email help or chat on the web site? why do you have to search to find some sort of support?

    ..... terrible!

    Summary

    dont bother ....
