This is the best $20 I’ve spent in a long time. I’ve 6 thousand contacts and 800 calendar items plus tasks and notes. It took me 4 hours to speak with The BB Z10’ Tech Dept. just to find out that it couldn’t sync with Outlook. Bb Tech Support said, “Sorry.” Took back the Z10 and got a Windows 8 phone from HTC. With the help of Akruto, I am now synced and a happy camper.

Smartphone Headache Solved by Akruto!
I’d be remiss if I neglected to inform you how effective Akruto Sync is at synchronizing Outlook contacts, calendar and tasks with Smartphones. Unfortunately Windows 8 eliminated support for ActiveSync a mobile data synchronization app in favor of a cloud-based service. Many power users, such as me, consider the Windows 8 cloud-based service data extortion. The Microsoft promoted solution requires our personal and business data to be held hostage “somewhere in the cloud”. I’ve opted to use Akruto Sync to locally manage, secure, and maintain privacy of my Outlook database without accessing the cloud. Akruto has worked wonders for me and I’m confident it will do the same for you. PS – they offer a risk free trial period which will have you hooked on their solution within minutes!

I have been a Windows Phone “Power User” since it’s inception and have over 3,000 contacts and thousands of calendar entries. With Windows Phone 7 I thought I hit the end of the line and was looking for an alternative until I found Akruto Sync! This is the best thing since the Windows Phone itself was introduced. The team is beyond helpful and the software has been fantastic. Great work Akruto!!!!!!!

I was totaly frustrated not being able to sync my windows phone localy.
When I heard about Akruto, I joined the beta-test. It was great working with the Akruto guys. I am using Akruto now for about half a year and synchronisation simply works in such a way that I almost forget that I’m using this great tool.

If not for Akruto Sync, I suspect my Nokia Lumia windows phone would be at the bottom of the Thames (London river) by now. I was livid when I discovered that the much heralded new phone needed me to synchronise all of my contacts and calendars via the cloud. I discovered Akruto Sync and calm and serenity returned to my world. I was sceptical at first, after all if Microsoft wasn’t doing it how could any smaller company offer a first class reliable product, but my scepticism was unfounded. Not only is the product brilliant, it does what it says on the tin, but their ongoing service is utterly brilliant. I have had one or two issues, but the guys are immediately on the case getting to the bottom of the problem and getting me back on the road (almost literally). Take note Microsoft and Apple for that matter!

You guys are legends! I was getting ready to sell or take back my Lumia 820 windows phone. It wouldn’t transfer over bluetooth the contacts and calendar like my last 3 nokia smartphones, it wouldn’t connect through the cable and it wouldn’t even connect to the cloud I was trying to avoid! Then your wonderful application saved me, and a great step for personal privacy!

I have been using Outlook for years and have come to rely on my accumulated data. More than a year ago I had to move into the world of Smartphone and Cloud connection and my frustration with Outlook sync kept me in an older Blackberry. Thanks to Akruto I have updated to HTC Windows phone8 and Windows OS8. Thank you for doing what Microsoft should have been doing from the beginning. You are worth every cent and more!

The following comments by Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak, were not made in relation to Akruto, but Steve captured our sentiment about the cloud so well that we had to quote him.
I really worry about everything going to the cloud. I think there are going to be a lot of horrible problems in the next five years [...] With the cloud, you don’t own anything. You already signed it away [...] A lot of people feel, ‘Oh, everything is really on my computer,’ but I say the more we transfer everything onto the web, onto the cloud, the less we’re going to have control over it.
