Pumatech's Intellisync 4 can synchronise your handheld with more than a dozen major PC applications, including Outlook, and it caters to people who happen not to work in a Microsoft-only world.
The new version supports Lotus Organizer 6 for the Palm and Pocket PC/Windows CE platforms as well as Lotus Notes R5 and Act 2000. The package also gives you access to a free version of the Browse-it utility; this program lets you download Web pages for offline viewing on Palm OS handhelds and permits real-time online browsing with Palms that have wireless or wired modems (the utility doesn't work on CE/Pocket PC devices, however).
People who own Symbian-"compatible handhelds, such as the Psion Revo or Series 5, can look forward to syncing up with Intellisync 4 in the first half of 2001. Check the company's Web site for updated information on the download.
Installing my shipping version of Intellisync 4 was no problem - I immediately obtained full synchronisation with my Lotus Notes calendar, e-mail, contacts, to-do's, and memos, as well as getting one-directional uploads (device-to-PC or vice versa).
Like its predecessors, version 4 lets you mix and match the various apps with which you want to sync - say, the calendar of Lotus Notes, the contact address book of Act 2000, and the to-do's in Outlook.
Currently, Pumatech's Intellisync is the only PC/handheld-synchronisation software to work seamlessly with both Palm and Win CE/Pocket PC platforms and their wide spectrum of desktop applications. This invaluable accessory should routinely be included with these devices.
