Desktop Calendar Opinions

I come from a Palm background and enjoyed setting my calendar on the home desktop and amending it in the field.  The device merger software doesn't support my old Palm so I want a new desktop calendar which is reliable, easy to use and sync with my Curve.


Outlook?  Windows Live?  Google?  Yahoo?


Any and all opinions are appreciated.Smiley Happy

Re: Desktop Calendar Opinions

Outlook is really very seamless to sync with the BB.


Google Calendar is good also.

Re: Desktop Calendar Opinions

I enjoy Outlook greatly.  Staples has the 2007 version - the most recent for about $100.  Your device will sync with calendar, memos & address book nicely.  Takes a moment or two to set up in Desktop manager, but well worth the little bit of time spent.  Ive used many different BB devices with outlook before and never had an issue.  You can even have multiple calendars - i have one for work and one for home, and it syncs perfectly.


Good luck!!
