Review three for Deja Office
I've written two previous reviews of Deja Office, the first positive and the second less so because of the apps instability. There has been another update since then and I wanted to revise my thoughts in fairness to DejaOffice and Companionlink. DejaOffice is the only app that links easily with ACT via Companionlink's desktop app that you have pay for. I've always felt it was worth it since back in my Palm Pilot Days linking to Agendus. After about a month using the new version, it seems stable and I don't think much about the process anymore. I tell it to sync and it does it. A few weeks ago, I had a major disaster with my ACT database and had to rebuild from scratch. I did so by syncing my DejaOffice copy of the file to a new ACT database with no problem. The app has a lot of potential and I would recommend it if nothing else as portable back up to your ACT database. 11/8/12 -- Let me follow up with my thoughts on Deja Office having used it for several months now. It continues to work seemlessly with my Act on my desktop. The connection between ACT and Deja Office is far far more stable than any connection with Outlook. That includes direct ACT to Outlook, ACT to Outlook through Companionlink Professional, ACT to Outlook to Pocket Informant (and back) any way I've tried it. Here is my "system". When I get to work in the morning, if I've made changes in Deja Office since I last backed up, I sync with ACT. If I have not made changes, I open ACT, let ACT update my tasks and calls automatically (moving yesterday's tasks and call to today), make any other changes I may need and then sync with Deja Office. At the end of the day I sync again before leaving the office. Make changes on Deja Office at home if I need to (adding kids band concerts, etc) and then repeat the next morning. It works for me. The biggest draw back to Deja Office is that it is not as "pretty" as other apps. I would think they would begin to clean that up. I really like the Today view that shows Meetings, Calls, Tod Dos AND CONTACTS on the same page. Please don't change that!

B.s. app
Requires you to install another app called Companion Link to get the sync with Outlook. Drill-down menus to hunt and peck looking for what should be a one or two click setup. Wasted my time even trying it.

Wasted Time...Again!
Once again, the update doe not work properly. Once again, my time has been wasted! Is it that difficult to get it right the first time?

No Landscape
I saw on reason for an update. Worked just like I wanted it to. Since the update stars have gone from 5 to 2. Landscape mode on Ipad no longer works. Please check all of the platforms before distributing to the public.
