Google Calendar Forces Users To An Alternative Sync Solution

Automatically sync Outlook Contacts, Calendar, and Tasks between PC and Android. Direct, reliable, cloud-free.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Akruto, Inc. Press Release

Newton, Mass. – July 16, 2014 – Google has announced that Google Calendar Sync, an application that syncs events between Google Calendar and Microsoft Outlook Calendar, will no longer be supported as of August 1, 2014. AkrutoSync™ from Akruto, Inc. comes to the rescue by offering a cloudless, seamless and automatic way to synchronize Outlook Contacts, Calendars, Tasks, and Notes across all Android and Windows Phone devices.

Google Calendar Sync Alternative

Users won’t have to keep Outlook updated through Google’s cloud. Instead, they can use AkrutoSync to automatically sync Outlook directly to Android or Windows Phone devices through Wi-Fi or the Internet. Because of this, users don’t need USB cables and they won’t have to worry about personal and confidential information leaking in the cloud.

Even with the Internet option, users’ phones and tablets connect directly to their computer using an SSL-encrypted connection. The data does not pass through Akruto’s servers or any cloud service.

“Today’s connected users want and need their data everywhere they go,” says George Tatar, founder and CEO of Akruto, Inc. “With AkrutoSync, Google Calendar Sync users will be able to effortlessly sync their personal information across devices. They’ll also enjoy more privacy as the information won’t go through the cloud.”

Users can try a fully functional version of AkrutoSync for seven days at no cost from http://www.akruto.com/get-akruto-sync/. To ease the transition from Google Calendar Sync to AkrutoSync, users can get $5 off the regular price of $29.95. A license to continue using the software is available for a one-time cost of only $24.95. (Special price good through August 15, 2014.) This includes installing AkrutoSync on a single PC and using it with unlimited compatible handsets, smartphones and tablets.

    Will Akruto work with Nokia Lumia 930 and the other new Lumias coming out? (I haven’t decided which I want yet.)

      Mark, AkrutoSync works with all new Windows Phones coming out. The new phones will have the Windows Phone 8.1 OS. We already tested it and know that it works with AkrutoSync. AkrutoSync aims to let you sync all your devices, including the very latest models.

    What if I want to sync with both Google Calendar and Outlook?

      Pat, AkrutoSync will only sync your devices with Outlook. It will not sync your events with the Google calendar on the web, sorry. But lots of Google calendar users do not use the web interface to access their calendar. They only access it through their mobile devices and MS Outlook. For them AkrutoSync will replace Google calendar perfectly.
