Syncroid – Outlook to Android Sync
This great application developed by XDA member demosten will let you synchronize your Outlook with your Android device calendar without using exchange sync. Syncdroid synchronizes your appointments from PC to Android but can be extended to do bi-directional sync contacts as well. The application is on the first release and the developer needs feedback from you, so more features can be included in a future version.
Syncdroid apk will work till 1/1/2011, but dev states before that date an update will be published.
Tested on Nexus One with Android 2.1 and 2.2

Synchronizes your Outlook client calendar with your Android calendar.
I needed to synchronize my Outlook with Android. There are many reasons to do so instead of using exchange synchronization. You might use Outlook without Exchange or work in a corporate environment which does not allow you to access Exchange directly. Android does not provide such an option. There are several paid solutions, which does not use original Android calendar application and some vendor specific ones too.
Syncroid is my solution. It only synchronizes meetings (appointments) and only from PC to Android, but it can be extended to do both direction synchronization and synchronize contacts. I’m at the point when this application works fine for me, but if you find it useful you can dictate its future, features and implementation priorities. This version is free. However Android part will expire on 1.1.2011. There should be an update up to this moment anyway. Since it already took lots of my free time, at some point I’ll probably split it to paid and lite versions. This will happen if development becomes more complex and only when I feel application is stable enough to be commercial.

Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way! The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...
Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
