Hi all,

I know that this has been discussed before, but with Android apps services are changing all the time. 

I'm just wondering what apps people are finding best for using with Exchange email and calandar on their Android devices? 

I'm running a HTC Magic (Vodafone NZ).

Cheers

i have tried both Dataviz Roadsync and Towndown solutions and found Roadsync the best, especially with integration with their DocsToGo office suite.  However, both solutions doesn't support the full set of security policies in Exchange 2003 and 2007. Good thing is you can try these before you buy.
Cheers

I just use the standard interface to access Exchange Mail and for appointments Google Calendar Sync on my desktop to sync the calendar to my Google Calendar. Then the phone (for me the N1) just sync its calendar with the Google one.

Not as tidy as an iPhone solution but it works okay most of the time and costs nothing.

The Google Nexus One comes with Exchange ActiveSync.  I don't really use Exchange mail much, so didn't get beyond setting up the Exchange email for work and telling it to NOT sync contacts with my personal phone. 

I've since moved to Cyanogen Mod on the Nexus so i can't recall if it also did the calendar  or not. I seem to recall seeing a "Corporate Calender" which is usually a euphemism for that. But it isn't on Cyanogen....and I prefer Google Calendar anyway.

I was pretty dissapointed when I moved from WM6 to Android as didnt actually realise a lot of exchange features were not supported. I have had my Nexus 1 now for about a month and finally have a solution I feel happy with. I have also tried touchdown and moxier, both had good points but I generally didnt like them. I upgraded to the Sense ROM a few weeks back so that gave me mail, calendar and contacts sync and I am now using Astrid via Remember the Milk and an outlook sync prog for tasks. So far so good really, not as intergrated as activesync but not too bad. I think the only thing I miss now is the ability to have it in a dock on my desk and it use my desktop PC's internet to save on data as we dont have Wifi at work.

Google Android reverse tethering - there are a couple of options out there for rooted phones ("reverse", as in the internet connection is on the laptop/PC, not the other way around).  Haven't done it myself yet, but will be soon for the same reasons when I'm working at a customer's site and don't have access to wifi.

I use a app called 'Work e-mail". As far as I am aware, it is not in the market place. I got it from here:

http://www.nexeo.net/?p=93

It only does e-mail, so it doesn't sync calenders or contacts, which doesn't bother me; I have my work outlook calender sync'ing with my google calender. The only issue with that it only sync's when my work PC is on, but it is bearable.

The N1 has native Exchange Mail sync so I am not sure what other capabilities this software provides. It's annoying it doesn't do the full Activesync that the iPhone has but then Google want you to use their cloud. I also sync via Google Calendar Sync which poses some challenges when you are in a corporate environment.

If you are talking about work e-mail that I linked to, then it doesn't provide any other capabilities than the N1 already has.

I have a HTC Magic, like the OP, which doesn't have native exchange mail. Work e-mail provides at least e-mail capabilities for this device.

Sorry - didn't see you were not using a N1. The Mail app on there is pretty good so there is no need for a 3rd party one.
