Sync HTC One with Outlook
3 Ways to Sync with HTC One M9 and HTC One A9
We can do everything on our devices that we can do on our desktops and laptops. Having our information with us at all times drives up productivity. When you need to information to do something, you should be able to find it right there on your phone or tablet.
Syncing makes this possible. You have three options to sync calendar with HTC One M9 and A9. You can also sync contacts and other content.
Option 1: HTC Sync with Google
After you take the HTC One M9 or HTC One A9 out of the box, it’ll ask you to sign in to your Google account. Once done, the HTC One phones will automatically sync Google contacts, calendar and email. For many users, this isn’t acceptable because they don’t want to sync with the cloud or use Google for everything. You can turn this off in the HTC One settings.
Google Sync may be free, but sticking with cloud-sync apps causes the following problems:
- Botches data during sync.
- Creates duplicate entries.
- Offers less reliable security.
- Provides inconsistent service.
- Stops working for good. (Google Calendar Sync, for example.)
- Increases complexity.
“Setting up and using Akruto Sync has been simplicity itself,” says Peter G. “It worked perfectly first time and does everything that is claimed for it. Highly recommended, so much less trouble than syncing through the cloud etc.”
Option 2: HTC Sync Manager
The HTC Sync Manager download and Samsung Kies try to do everything: sync appointments, calendar, bookmarks, media, photos, videos and on and on. HTC and Samsung develop a lot of products, which results in not having the best product for some tasks as hardware is their No. 1 priority.
Sync software isn’t simple. Search for HTC Sync Manager not working, Kies alternative and Samsung Smart Switch not working to see millions of results. HTC Sync Manager is available for HTC phones, but it causes more problems like the infamous Samsung Kies and Samsung Smart Switch do.
If you’re an Outlook power user or want one tool to sync all your important information: contacts, calendar, notes and tasks, you’ll want software that does just that. Syncing personal information is different from syncing media. Media sync simply copies the media over from computer to device and vice versa.
Syncing personal information, on the other hand, involves moving multiple bits of information for each entry. Every contact and appointment contains details: names, phone numbers, addresses, contact photo, times, and more. That data needs to transfer to the HTC One M9 and A9’s calendar and contacts built-in fields. However, Kies and the HTC Sync Manager bungle the data as one user shares his experience.
“Using HTC Sync Manager, appointments mysteriously started appearing 24 hours late on my One M9,” writes John J. in his sync Outlook review. “Despite a reinstall of both the phone and Sync Manager the problem persisted. HTC support reported that it is a known problem but without a solution — most unhelpful. Akruto instantly solved the issue and Sync Manager has been deleted for good.”
People buy the HTC One M9 because it’s a powerhouse of a performer and one of the best devices in terms of CPU, storage, and overall performance. It even has an edge over Samsung Galaxy S6. If you opt for Quick Charge 2, you’ll enjoy speedy-quick battery recharging.
Both come with Sense 7, a software overlay that enhances the Android experience. Sense 7 allows you to customize the phone’s theme, wallpaper, clock, icons and more. It also promises less fiddling with settings and fewer button presses.
You can create a mode for work and a mode for play with Sense Home and switch between them. It allows you to access frequently-used work-related apps when you’re on the job. And then when you’re done working, you can switch to play mode to tuck away the work-related apps.
People tend to buy the HTC A9 because they want an iPhone 6S with the brains of an Android. And it’s the first non-Google phone to come with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Priced like a flagship phone, the A9 doesn’t offer specs you’d expect in a flagship. If you want to look at other options that might get you more for your money, take a gander at the Moto X Pure or Nexus 6P.
Don’t let all of the valuable features in the HTC One that be hampered by poor Outlook sync software that breaks things, messes up your data, or causes disappearing information.
Option 3: HTC Outlook Sync
You can directly sync your private information between your computer and your HTC One using Akruto, Windows Outlook sync software. When you use it to sync Outlook with HTC One M9 and A9, none of it syncs with the cloud.
You won’t have to worry about the service going away because once you buy AkrutoSync, it’s yours for as long as you use it to sync HTC One with Outlook. You can even add other devices if you have more.
Here’s how you’re more productive with Akruto:

Keep Your Data with You: Sync HTC One Mini to Outlook
If you’re looking for an HTC One that’s smaller and has a more affordable price tag, the HTC One Mini could be the Android phone for you. The Mini looks similar to its big brother complete with the aluminum and plastic frame design. Its size puts it at an advantage over its big brother as it can be used with one hand and fit in smaller pockets and pouches. The droid phone comes in Glacial Silver, Stealth Black and Blue.
Sporting a 4.3-inch display, the Mini contains a 720p HD resolution screen, less resolution than the HTC One. Nonetheless, the Mini’s resolution remains ahead of many of its competitors. Such rival phones include Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, Samsung Galaxy S3, Google Nexus 5, HTC One Mini 2 and HTC One.
Be aware that the HTC One Mini doesn’t support SD cards nor does it come with a removable battery. And your only option is a 16 gb phone. On the bright side, if you get the HTC One Mini with an older version of the Android OS, it’ll be upgradeable to v5.0 (Lollipop).
Manage your calendar and contacts with HTC One Mini
As with most Android phones, you can’t sync HTC One Mini with Outlook out-of-the box. Because of this, you may find yourself stuck putting off scheduling appointments until you return to your home or small business computer. It doesn’t have to be this way.
One free option is to use Google calendar and contacts. The problem with this route is that it stores your information in the cloud and it isn’t private. This is unacceptable for professionals especially those who are real estate agents, financial advisors, healthcare providers and attorneys. Furthermore, this process sometimes causes duplicates, fails to sync everything or scrambles the data.
Another option is to use third party software. More on that in a minute.
The HTC One Mini calendar app is HTC’s Sense 5 app. This contains five views: Day, Month, Week, Agenda and Invites. Like in other Sense 5 apps, you can swipe between views using tabs. Calendar supports multiple online calendars including Facebook’s and allows you to control which calendar to show or hide.
If you log into an online address book from the HTC One Mini, you’ll see a list of your contacts in its Contacts app. However, this could be a problem for people who don’t want to save their personal information in the cloud.
As promised, here’s the third party option. Both Calendar and Contacts apps can automatically, directly and seamlessly sync with Outlook for PC through a Windows PC software called AkrutoSync. Moving calendar from desktop Outlook to Android does not store any of your private information to the cloud. “Great app, especially if you would prefer to keep your data local,” writes Kevin K.
Akruto offers Outlook Wi-Fi sync with this Android phone. You won’t need to keep up with cables or remember to connect the phone to your computer for transferring your contacts and calendar to your phone. When people call you to schedule an appointment, you can finally stop telling people, “I’ll get back to you.” Now you can enter your appointments right into your phone wherever you are.
Stay on top of tasks and take notes with HTC One Mini
You probably enter tasks that you do away from your computer. Another benefit of using AkrutoSync is that it works with the HTC Tasks app on the HTC One Mini. You’ll have your reminders and to-dos wherever you go with the HTC One Mini and be able to check them off when you complete them. (Isn’t that a great feeling?)
Using an app similar to Samsung’s SPen, the HTC Note app can take notes. Since this app is proprietary to HTC, it doesn’t work with Akruto. Instead, you could opt for a more powerful notes app to sync Outlook Notes with HTC One Mini.
How to sync Outlook with HTC One Mini
As mentioned before, AkrutoSync can directly sync phone to a home or small business computer running Outlook PC. Customers who had tried other Outlook sync software said that Akruto was the only one that worked. Yes, it can even sync Android with Microsoft Outlook 2003. If you have the latest version, rest assured Akruto can sync Outlook 2013 as well as 2002, 2007 and 2010.
Benefits of using AkrutoSync:
- Have your Outlook calendar on the HTC One Mini and other compatible devices.
- Enjoy effortless wireless sync without using the cloud.
- Transfer Outlook Tasks and Notes between computer and Android.
- Use the Calendar, Contacts and Tasks apps that comes with the HTC One Mini.
- Carry your updated Outlook information on unlimited compatible devices FREE.
You have two secure options for Outlook wireless sync: Wi-Fi and Internet. Your wireless network directly transports the data between computer and phone. “I love the immediacy of my updates transferring across between my laptop and my droid,” writes Mike. By the way, if you use the Outlook Wi-Fi sync method, it won’t use your phone’s data plan at all.
To install the Windows PC software, just follow the onscreen prompts or the directions from sync Samsung Galaxy S5 with Outlook. (These work with HTC One Mini.) If you need help with the installation, we offer 24/7 support. You can also have our experts install it for you by opting for the Akruto Gold plan.
It’s important that you can check out how software works for you before you buy it. You can do that. Try Akruto free for seven days. This trial includes the full version, not a lite version or anything with limits.
“After converting from iOS to Android, I have been searching for an easy way to synchronize my Outlook data — I just found it and my satisfaction with Android is now complete!” writes Dave G. And guess what? If you want to get a tablet or replace the HTC with an iPhone, Windows Phone or another Android compatible phone, Akruto will keep on working.
