Are you an Android user trying to survive in the corporate world with by Microsoft Exchange servers? Have you ever longed for an elegant way to synchronize notes across your connected PCs and Android devices? If so, XDA forum member Hundera has exactly what you’re looking for.
Thanks to client software on both your Android device and Outlook-enabled PC, Notes for Exchange stores your notes using standard Exchange appointment synchronization. The notes synchronization can even be used with other calendars such as your Google Calendar if you would prefer to not install the Outlook plugin. In the words of the developer:
Notes For Exchange is application to synchronize notes between Android and MS Exchange. This application will NOT store your Notes to some third-party server. It uses standard exchange synchronization of Appointments.
How it works?
“Notes for Exchange” has two parts:
* Outlook Add-in (NotesForExchange_x.zip), that will synchronized your notes with calendar appointments. It creates items at end of February 2048, so it will not collide with your standard events. Using standard Exchange synchronization, these are synchronized with your android phone.
* Android application (ExchangeNotes_x.apk), that displays these special “Appointment” as Notes. Also allows you to edit and delete them.
Android application can be used without Outlook add-in with any other calendar (e.g. gmail). In that case, it’s just simple notes application that stores notes into your calendar. During testing and usage of this application, no data were lost. But backup of Notes and Appointment is strongly recommended.
