View Full Version : Organising between Digital Devices

6th September 2009, 02:07 AM
Most of us would use different devices at different times through the day eg. Windows machine for work, Mac for personal, Phone for when mobile...so how do you stay organised and in sync between all devices?

Generally what I want to do is if I input a to-do/calendar entry into one machine it'll sync between all, same with email, contacts etc.

Please post your setup?

Use google calendar. It syncs to iPhone, iCal and can be got at through the web, for your pc needs.

Have you checked out MobileMe (http://www.apple.com/mobileme/)?. I use it primarily for syncing devices.

I have MobileMe syncing calendars, contacts, notes and bookmarks between an iMac, MacBook and 2 iPhones. Works beautifully.

BusySync (http://www.busymac.com/busysync/index.html) synchronises iCal between mac's on the same network (not free and they double sting you with price you have to buy for each mac). They have a more expensive BusyCal (http://www.busymac.com) with more features and sync with google calender though google are evil.

It works very well (tested over 30 day trial). As soon as the pricing issue is changed (at lest 2 machines per license), or comes on sale, i will buy a copy.

Synk (http://www.decimus.net/index.php) (back-up, standard and pro editions also not free) will allow you to back-up or synchronise folders bewteen macs on a network. You can also schedule this as well.

I just purchased the standard (http://www.decimus.net/synk_standard.php) version after the 30 day trial...
