Sync Outlook Calendar with AndroidSupport
A friend told the story of how she spent too much time updating her calendar in multiple places to keep the information in sync with Outlook and her Android devices. She and her husband share a Google calendar while each has a personal Outlook calendar.
If she entered a new event on her Android, it’d show up in her shared calendar, but not Outlook. So she’d have to re-enter all events when she went back to her computer. A simpler solution to sync Outlook calendar with Android devices would be to use third party software like AkrutoSync. Doing this prevents the need to re-enter information on the phone or computer.
The problem with Google Calendar
Now what about synchronizing her family’s shared Google calendar? Google Calendar Sync is no longer available to sync calendars. Importing a calendar from Google into Outlook is static and won’t update the other calendar when you make changes on one. And vice versa. Exporting Outlook calendar to import it into Google calendar won’t update.
This is a common problem as most people can’t share their business calendars, which uses Outlook. So they use Google to share. Whichever solution you choose, remember that synchronizing with Google calendar uses the cloud.
Sync Google and Outlook Calendars with Android
Still need to sync Google calendar with Outlook? Beware this syncs your information with the cloud, which means less privacy.
Try Outlook-Google Calendar Sync, a free app that does that. This with AkrutoSync will sync Outlook Calendar with Android devices. You will never have to enter an event twice.
Update: We’ve heard reports that Outlook-Google Calendar Sync can cause problems. Instead, see Microsoft’s instructions to transfer calendars between Outlook and Google Calendar or a GO Contact Sync Mod from Sourceforge. (Please note that we haven’t tested GoogleSyncMod. It’s only a suggestion.)
Just remember this isn’t a cloudless process. But it allows you to keep your data automatically updated in all places without any effort on your part. The two software programs ensure Outlook calendar syncs with Android devices.
AkrutoSync makes things easier as it syncs Outlook calendar with your Android’s native calendar app. Some third party sync applications add their own software to your Android leaving you with two calendar apps to clutter your screen. Akruto also uses your Android’s native contact, tasks and notes apps.
Gain more control over data with history
Sometimes working with a phone, we accidentally delete information. Akruto has a sync history feature that allows you to review additions, changes and deletions. You can restore deleted information or save all the data.
Cloud vs. cloudless option
If you want to sync Outlook calendar with Android devices, AkrutoSync does the job wirelessly, automatically, securely and cloudlessly. Leave it at that, and you won’t have to go through the cloud.
However, some people want to sync Google calendar with Outlook and Android devices. In this case, Outlook-Google Calendar Sync will take care of it for you. Since both products are downloadable software, you don’t have to worry about the service going away like Google Calendar Sync did.
You can try the full version of AkrutoSync free for seven days. If you like it and purchase a license, we’ll send you a registration code to enter in the software. No downloading or reconfiguring anything again. A license covers one Windows PC and unlimited devices. (The software supports Windows Phone with an iOS option in the works.)
