Disappointed
I was looking for an app where I could combine calendar / task functions with note taking. This does provide the opportunity to add notes to calendar events, but not very sophisticated. Multiple appointments in one day do not show up on the month view. Even though I have changed the settings repeatedly, the week starts on Monday, not Sunday. The week view often freezes and will not show any data. I haven't tried syncing with outlook. Frankly, I am afraid to do it! This app is simple to use, but there are a lot of disappointing flaws. Hope they are fixed soon...

A long way to go
I am an x palm user. I was so hopeful when I found this app that I might get some calendar functionality back that I gave up going to iPhone. The ability to sync wireless was attractive too. The calendar does a time window of sync data defaulted at 90 days. I want all the data to sync. Having historical data is very valuable to me. The sync with outlook was unreliable. Every calendar sync caused items to be duplicated on the deja calendar yet only one item appears on outlook calendar. I also lost ringtone and text tone data on the native iOS contact info. I made careful backups before testing so I will revert back to wired sync through iTunes. This app has a long way to go to be comparable to Palm OS.

Keeps getting worse
5/29/11 (v1.2.1): Have tried since version 1.1.5 to use DJO and CompanionLink Pro to sync Goldmine with the iPhone4. With each update I have allowed myself a glimmer of hope. Alas, this one (v1.2.1) is the worst yet. It crashed on first use importing contacts and now won't open the DJO app at all. Seriously? I would rather wait six months for a version that works than waste time with untested, pre-Alpha releases. Come on guys, get it together. 5/31/11 (v1.2.2): immediate release of bug fix did not help. The DJO app crashes within 3 secs of opening. A+ for effort, F for results. I assume my DJO database is now corrupted. Next update needs to wipe it before trying the initial contact import.

Buggy App
Crashed while importing contacts. Have no patience for app's not properly debugged.

Bugs with system
This software has bugs with iPhone sync with outlook. It keeps adding the same event to your calendar every time you sync. I now have 5 of every event and i can not clean it up.

Don't trust this with your data
I had it working somewhat at one point, but now the CompanionLink software just scrambled my Palm Desktop calendar data and lost all my address data - Luckily I had a backup from a few days ago. - Also, now DejaOffice will not recognize the native iPod Touch 4G Contacts app and is unable to import the contacts into itself. App crashes when syncing. Very weird Terms of Service agreement for the CompanionLink app. - Makes it seem that they get a lot of complaints (probably users who have lost their data) and they don't want to deal with them.
