Editors' Review

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

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"

 |  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."

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.
