Sync Android with Outlook
You can sync all of your contacts, calendar entries and tasks between your Android and Outlook. AkrutoSync completely and accurately syncs thousands of entries and items with long notes. It won’t cut off any data, a problem reported in other sync Outlook software. The program also syncs all past and future appointments.
AkrutoSync fully supports Outlook 2002, Outlook 2003, Outlook 2007, Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2013. It syncs Outlook with most Android phones including HTC One, HTC Desire, Samsung Galaxy S4 and Google Nexus 7.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on using AkrutoSync to sync your Android with Outlook. Please note that this is a one-time process. Once you’re done, your device continues to automatically sync directly with Outlook.
The only time — and it’s a rare occurrence for most people — you may have to intervene is if your Windows PC gets a new IP address. When this happens, AkrutoSync will guide you through the process with a few simple clicks.

Step 5: AkrutoSync will ask you to create a login for your Android to connect to your computer.
Step 6: On your Android, choose “Settings,” scroll down and choose “Add account.” Instructions with screenshots for common Android models are available in AkrutoSync User Guide.
Step 7: On your Android, enter the email address shown on the AkrutoSync screen and the password you entered in Step 5. After a few seconds, AkrutoSync will sync Outlook with Android and show the sync is in progress.
