I migrated from Palm to Android. I had been extensively reliant upon
Agendus on the Palm and its ability to categorize tasks by context (based
upon my categories). Complicating the transition was that I left solo
practice and joined a law firm that relies upon Outlook Exchange, and my
Treo 755p could just not do Outlook.
While there is no Agendus for Android (I've been back and forth with the
developer who hints at it, but that was nearly two years ago and I don't
think it's coming), there are other options out there, depending upon
whether one wants to use Exchange or Google as the database.
Dataviz' Roadsync is one option, although the task synchronization is not
excellent, in fact, I cannot recommend Roadsync for anyone who wants to
root their Android phone and intends to change ROMs. Roadsync's database
is too volatile, and you'll have to start over every time.
On the other hand, Sense 3.5 has a built in task manager that syncs nicely
with Outlook, and I have used that since switching from an Incredible to a
I agree you have to do your homework before making the leap.
