    "12 hrs & still indexing 1 email folder w/103 items."

    July 21, 2010  |   By cnetrevuer

    Pros

    Software never fully loaded; spent too much timing trying to repair, debug, reinstall, etc. Really like the marketing materials!

    Cons

    Slow, never launched. Will probably be a great product when they debug it.

    Summary

    The product should at least install fully before I have to repair it. Can't imagine an enterprise version - couldnt get this to work on my personal computer which has virtually nothing on it (in outlook) compared to my work computer. Concept is really great though.

    BTW: In the FAQ section, looked for "Can I remove my data from the Xobni One servers?" and found this answer "Yes, there are two ways to remove your data from the Xobni One servers.

    From Xobni for BlackBerry: Go to the Xobni application options and then click the menu button. You'll see an option to remove your Xobni account. If choose this option you'll see a dialog that allows you to remove your data from the Xobni One servers as part of the account removal from the BlackBerry. Keep in mind this will remove your Xobni contacts from the BlackBerry and from Xobni One.

    From Outlook with Xobni: Go to the Xobni menu and choose options. Go to the Indexing tab and you'll see a button to delete your data from the Xobni One servers."

    If I were a Blackberry owner I'd be highly upset to find out that a vendor that performed poorly also forced me to lose my contacts in order to remove MY data from their servers and the option listed for Outlook didnt exist at all - there was no such option or button on the page. That's an integrity issue to me; not sure I'd want to deal with these guys in the future. Good luck.
