    Which Smartphone and Reliable Sync Software?


    I had a recent post concerning Win 8.1 and HTC Sync. I now have to buy a new phone since I can't sync my HTC Inspire with Outlook, running on Win 8.1. Any suggestions as to which smartphones have reliable sync software available (free download?)? I'm interested in the Samsung Galaxy S4 and see that Samsung's sync software is Kies. However, there are mixed comments as to whether it works on Win 8.1. Thanks.

    I use a galaxy S4 and the iCloud outlook updater on the PC (Don't need an iPhone to use iCloud) , and iSynchr on the PC to synch the S4 with my iTunes music libraries.

    might seem a weird process , but we all share the same iCloud family login here on iPhones and Android phones, I just added the iCloud calendar to the S4, so we know what each of us is doing and the phone type (not Windows phone though) doesn't matter..

    I stick an appointment on my S4 , my wife sees it on her iPhone almost straight away...and our PC outlook calendars get updated too (Just provide outlook the correct calendar link to let it show the iCloud data.

    Wullail - thanks for the info. I don't use any clouds for my data, so I'll have to keep looking.
