BB10Sync, an indie start-up group partnered with CompanionLink Software, has created a new tool designed for secure, cloudless two-way synchronization of Microsoft Outlook and BB10 devices via USB. Priced at $24.99, the new BB10 PC Outlook Sync app will support the BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 smartphone and any future devices running the BB10 OS.
The app syncs Outlook data from a PC with the BB10 device over USB and is compatible with both the standalone and Exchange versions of Outlook. All features get synchronized, including Contacts, Calendar, and Remember (tasks and notes).
Belinda Hilbert, lead QA (quality assurance) contact on the BB10Sync team, said that the indie start-up wanted to create an app that provides a more secure way to sync Outlook with BB10 devices.
“Few small business professionals want their corporate contacts and calendar in a hackable cloud database that is farmed for marketing by the database owner. The PC Outlook Sync app offers a secure way to move contacts, calendar, tasks and notes between your PC to your BlackBerry OS 10 device,” Hilbert maintained.
The BB10 PC Outlook Sync app is available now. Free trial versions are available. A single user license costs $24.99, while three licenses cost $39.99, and the “business pack” with five licenses costs $99.99. For more information, visit bb10outlooksync.com.
