    Need WeSync replacement?

    WeSync's dying; I need a replacement. Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my last hope.

    WeSync was an etremely nifty system; add a PRC to your Palm, and at sync time, your schedule changes sync up to the WeSync server. Up to 13 other calendar's changes are pulled down and stuffed into your Palm, and you now have, side by side, a combined calendar. The developers even created a web-based version (never released), as well as a Windows client, so you could view & update without pulling your Palm off your Bat-Belt.

    Well, WeSync is getting pretty moldy... even though Tanner Research bought it 15 months ago from PalmSource, who got it from Palm, which had been doing nothing with this gem of a service, Since, little visible has happened. There's nothing on Tanner's website about WeSync, just a vague announcement when syncing that hasn't changed since purchase day.

    UPDATE: Tanner still has folks working on this, and a support e-mail was answered next business day, by someone who read and wrote English above a third-grade level.. Didn't solve the problem, but it was answered.

    So, I look for a replacement. Ideally, it has a web interface, or failing that, a Windows (and Linux) client for updates via desktop.

    It must sync my changes to Her calendar, and vice versa. It also must make it clear which items are whose (the side-by-side view WeSync gave was superb).

    Also, since Outlook is a security risk, and a good way to lose all your data besides, any replacement must not be dependent on Outlook or Outlook Express.

    Your assistance in finding a replacement is truly appreciated.

    Just bumping this to the front to see if anything new has come up in the past year. Wesync's web page still gives the same "we're working on improvements, 1.6 coming soon" Does anyone know if this is true?

    I used Wesync 3 years ago for myself and my wife, but then she decided she didn't like a seperate phone and palm so I dropped it. Now we've both got 650s and I'm looking for a way to share calendars without having to sync to two different computers. Anything new out there?

    Thanks,
    JohnA

    update: just for the heck of it I tried logging into wesync with my old user name. it took me to a new page, called clearsync. It looks like it does the same stuff as wesync, with 3 levels of service ranging from free to $60/yr. Has anyone used this service yet? does it look like it will be around for a while?

    Thanks,
    JohnA
