I Want it Now! Why Mobile Push is Better

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

Most people synchronize email, calendars, contacts, and even tasks with their mobile devices and their service provider.  This allows them to see all of the same information on their computers and while on the go.

There are essentially three ways that synchronizing mobile devices discover updates and changes to contacts, new email messages, etc. On my iPhone, these are represented in the “Fetch New Data” settings area as

  • Push – where the server informs the device that there are updates waiting
  • Pull / Fetch – where the device checks periodically for changes
  • Manual – the device checks only when you request it

Keep Everything in Sync with Apple iOS5 and LuxSci MobileSync

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

Apple iOS v5 for iPad and iPhone is out!  iCloud is great, allowing easy synchronization of your Apple devices and limited synch with Outlook.

For easy synchronization of your iPhone, iPad, and all other mobile devices (i.e. Blackberry, Android, Windows Mobile) and LuxSci’s WebAide collaboration tools (Tasks / Calendars / Contacts), LuxSci MobileSync is still the best way to go.

Apple iOS5 with LuxSci Mobile Sync:

  • Still supports multiple calendar and contact list synchronizations
  • Still supports mail synchronization, Push email, and secure sending
  • New – Supports automatic synchronization of iOS “Reminders” with WebAide Task Lists
  • New – Create new email folders from the Mail application
  • New – Calendar events now support separate time zones for each event, making collaboration with folks in differing time zones much easier.
  • New – Flag Support. The “Flagged” status of email messages now synchronizes
  • New – Offline email move and delete.  If you move or delete mail while disconnected, these operations will now be performed when your device reconnects
  • Updated – Improves notification to users of new mail and other items
  • Updated – Server-side email folder searching has been improved.

Additionally, with LuxSci WebAideSync, you can also have your Calendars/Tasks/Contacts automatically synchronized with Microsoft Outlook as well.

 

Calendar Updates: Email to Calendar and More

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

LuxSci has made several enhancements to its WebAide Calendar features.  These include an improved printable Monthly view of your calendars and the ability to have event attachments in email messages auto-added to your calendars

Email To Calendar

WebAide-licensed users can now create Custom Email Filters that match selected messages with calendar attachments (e.g. events, invitations, iCal files, etc.) and have these items automatically added to a calendar of their choice.

This feature allows users who frequently receive events by email to have these automatically populate their calendars without any action needed.  Once in their calendars, these events are immediately visible in LuxSci’s web interface and immediately synchronize with users’ mobile devices via our Mobile Sync service.
