Sync2 for Outlook helps you synchronize Outlook on multiple computers and with Google's calendars and contacts.

Pros

Easy to use: Once you have everything set up, you can let Sync2 for Outlook do all the work for you with automatic synchronization. By default, it's set to occur hourly, but you can also opt for weekly, monthly, or daily.

Streamlined interface: The small interface has just a few options, with the key features easily accessed through large icons at the top of the window. The settings are easy to understand and allow you to set the synchronization to manual or automatic and adjust the frequency.

Manual option: If you feel the need to sync right now, you can't miss the large Sync button on the main window.

Cons

Installation: You'll be asked to choose options during installation before you fully understand how everything works together. In some cases, a better explanation than the one-line description would be helpful for newer users. Also, you will need to go through the installation process on each computer you want to sync.

Bottom Line

If you frequently use more than one computer, Sync2 for Outlook can be a useful tool, especially since it also allows you to sync Google's calendars and contacts as well.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Sync2 for Outlook 2.61.2616.

"Poor customer service and deceptive marketing practices"

December 30, 2015  |  By jjvrdlc

2015-12-30 16:19:26  |  By jjvrdlc

 |  Version: Sync2 for Outlook 2.64.2674

Pros

The software works. It does what it advertises.

Cons

My problem is their confusing and even deceptive marketing ploy via the PC notification. I had the software for over two years now. I upgraded the first two licenses before the one-year technical support and free upgrade expired. Of course, this extended tech support and upgrade for another year. A few weeks after the second year expired, I got a PC notification that there was a new free upgrade. I clicked on it and downloaded the upgrade only to get a message that since my one-year free upgrade expired, I would have to purchase another upgrade..I didn't want to upgrade since my previous versions worked fine. Plus, there was really no compelling reason to upgrade. So I called tech support because I couldn't get my previous version going, even after I uninstalled and reinstalled it. The last I had to call (before the support expired and after I upgraded to Windows 10), the tech guy had to connect to my PC to get it going. Now that support has expired, it has become useless.

Summary

I like the software but if I have to call (or buy a license if the one year free support is over) every time I need to reinstall, then I am not willing to spend any more money on it. I'll just have to find another alternative.

"Very frustrating and time-consuming"

December 09, 2015  |  By BirchCrafts

2015-12-09 04:29:37  |  By BirchCrafts

 |  Version: Sync2 for Outlook 2.64.2674

Pros

If and when it works, it's fine.

Cons

Poor backup and not value for money. Pretty useless. Waste of money.

Summary

I read many different reviews and decided to go for it. I also bought Duplicate Killer.
I spent (wasted) many, many hours trying to get it to work without much success. My main use of Outlook is as a calendar to record bookings in two Church Community Centres so it is useful to keep the PC and Laptop synchronised. 4Team support did little to help although they took control of my computers to solve the problem. In all the time I had it (about a year) it worked for only a few weeks. Duplicate Killer did nothing. I finally I uninstalled the programmes and have put everything on the main PC and relied on that. When the time came for renewal, I told them that it had never worked and that I had uninstalled it. They showed no interest or concern at all and were obviously satisfied that they had got some money out of me. I would say "Avoid"!

"Excellent product - effortless syncing."

December 03, 2015  |  By sarich100

2015-12-03 02:43:35  |  By sarich100

 |  Version: Sync2 for Outlook 2.64.2674

Pros

An essential accessory for Outlook users wanting to sync Diary and Calendar to Google and to iPhone (via Google). Very easy to install and to use. Excellent customer service that will go the extra mile to sort out problems.

Cons

None, if you accept the fact that, to get the best out of this software in the long-term, you should not regard it as a one-time purchase. You need to renew intermittently by purchasing an upgrade. Say once every two to three years. There is no such thing as a free lunch.

Summary

Win7 on PC - syncing to Android tablet and iPhone.
I love this product and I don't mind paying something for it. The deal is you pay full-price once, and receive free upgrades and customer support for 12 months. After that, the product keeps working fine, but you won't get the support package. Once you pay the upgrade cost (50% discount for existing customers) the support package kicks in again. What I do as the 12 month anniversary approaches, is to make sure the product is up-tp-date and there are no issues, then run with it without support for c. another year or more before purchasing the upgrade. That is the equivalent of a subscription costing c. £7 (pounds) a year. I wish they would introduce a subscription model to save me that bother.

"Waste of hours of time. I'm disgusted by this p.o.s."

September 26, 2015  |  By citizen-dave

2015-09-26 15:53:14  |  By citizen-dave

 |  Version: Sync2 for Outlook 2.63.2662

Pros

None whatsoever.

Cons

Customer service was impossible to understand and no help whatsoever.
After several hours of installing and uninstalling and trying to synch to remote hard drives and either computers. I quit. I'm so disgusted. After doing all my own service to the computers for 26 years, I quit.

Summary

Grasp a pair of knitting needles, at the back end like you would hold a fork, one in each hand and rest the pointy ends lightly at that place between the top of your cheek where it meets your eyes, plant your feet squarely on the floor and take a giant deep breath and with a great yell, thrust the needles through your eyeballs and on into the back of your brain. Or, for a similar experience, buy Sync2.

"Very useful app and delightful support."

2015-07-15 07:04:02  |  By Eaveng

 |  Version: Sync2 for Outlook 2.62.2638

Pros

As a personal user I have enjoyed using your Sync2 product for the trial period. Having been a user of Google Calendar Sync, this has been a welcome alternative since I will no longer be able to use the Google option soon. Now I have the full version on Sync2 and it works perfectly, the guys from support team helped me to set up. Recommend it to everyone with the same needs as me.

Cons

No cons found yet.

Works when it wants to.

"Seemed ok at first and then WHAM you are in a mess!"

March 29, 2015  |  By aryan.evantec

2015-03-29 11:26:42  |  By aryan.evantec

 |  Version: Sync2 for Outlook 2.61.2616

Pros

Does have a unique ability to synchronize between computers/various email and calendar programs, but only works initially.

Cons

-Works initially then stops
-Created a ton of duplicates in both contacts and calendar
-Did not sync personal appointments for some reasons
-Would not always sync meetings I had created but only meetings others had invited me too (which is odd)
-Duplicates in meetings often resulted in Outlook errors which then prevented me from editing or deleting my own meetings
-Their "free" patches and fixes often make it worse
-Support is unresponsive
-I could go on, but there is no point..

Summary

I originally used this because I have client computers with email/calendars that I needed to sync with other non-client computers so that I could look at one calendar and see what all my commitments were. Initially it worked OK although it duplicated contacts extensively as well as certain calendar items and would not always sync "appointments" but only meetings with others. Then there was a free patch that was meant to fix duplicates, which then made the duplicates even worse and sometimes 10 entries in my contacts for the same individual.
Then my computers were stolen and I needed to reactivate my licenses on the replacement computers. I contacted them multiple times through their support email and also tried Chat (never worked) and got no response on how to get my licenses reactivated because I no longer had the original machines.

THEN, my license/support/upgrade expired because support/upgrades are only valid for 1 year. I could still use the old software version but the support had now expired. It expired in mid March 2015 and I had tried contacting them several time in February 2015 (before the expiration of support license) and never got a single response.

NOW, I get multiple Sales/Marketing emails from them almost daily marked as "Urgent" and "Prompt response required", bordering on harassment. I then responded to one such email saying I have no interest in upgrading, getting support license etc. and that I am not interested in additional software from the company and my reasons for this due to lack of support, etc. and only THEN did they actually reply to my email saying their support is great "I just have to use it" and that:
"Please note that the latest Sync2 version 2.61 does not have any bugs and it works perfect. Regarding support, we do support via email or Live Chat all our technicians have an ability to connect to your machine remotely and fix the issue if needed. This type of support is more comfortable for us and for customers as well."

I lost it then and was aghast to read that their software has no bugs and works perfect.......as if any software was perfect and had no bugs, that would be any company's dream....but is in no way a reality.

I am not expecting perfect software, nor robust support for inexpensive software, but I am expecting that when I ask for support via email, you actually respond at some point, you help me fix the software I already own and don't try to strong arm me into something that is not a fit. Bad company, bad support, bad products. Would highly NOT recommend them.

"BEWARE!! THERE IS A CATCH! BAD SUPPORT TEAM!"

March 18, 2015  |  By altavistasf

2015-03-18 01:46:35  |  By altavistasf

 |  Version: Sync2 for Outlook 2.61.2616

Pros

none that i could find. waste of money. there is a catch!

Cons

By far, the worst app that freezes all times.
Their support is the worst and most helpless.
They force you to purchase the upgrade + support at the end of the year period, and ask you to renew year after year. If you don't, an irritating message keeps popping up asking you to upgrade .
When chatted with their support to get a solution in deactivating this stupid message since I didn't want support anymore, they precisely told me "you either live with it or purchase the upgrade every year"!
I do NOT recommend Sync and their products. Their apps are weak and their support is a joke!
