DropBox

08/12/2010

Now here’s a smart way of sharing files between your mobile device and a PC/Mac! DropBox (www.dropbox.com) works with smartphones running iPhone, iPad, Blackberry & Android OSs. The screenshot here is DropBox running on my iPhone 4, but the following features are generic across all OS platforms.
Synchronise Files automatically between your mobile smartphone and your PC/Mac 🙂
Storage free of 2GB and up to 100GB for a small price. DropBox servers are secure 🙂
File Management couldn’t be easier, create folders to organise files, work collaboratively.
For a more detailed description of what DropBox can be used for, visit https://www.dropbox.com/features.
Photo & Video Management is great, enabling you to take a photograph or video on your smartphone and access it within seconds on a PC/Mac. This has some very exciting possibilities what a mobile worker can deliver photographs/videos etc back to their office very quickly, effectively anywhere in the world!

Another successful data conversion…!

03/11/2010

Over the last 17 years, I’ve converted data many times from older Palmtop Computers (Psion 3, 3a, 3c, 3mx, Revo, Series 5/5mx/7) on to new PDAs (Pocket PC, Palm) and now mobile Smartphones (iPhone, Blackberry, Windows Mobile, Android).
Tonight I did another successful conversion of data, in this case 748 data address contacts from an old Psion Series 3mx into Microsoft Outlook Contacts for sync’ing on to a Blackberry. To say, the user was happy to have moved that mass of valuable contact information from a prehistoric (yet dearly loved old) Psion on to a modern Blackberry smartphone, is an understatement! 🙂
If Palmtopman (c/o Ozzie Hall-Osman) can ever help you with a similar conversion? Call me sometime 07889 374086 🙂

TESTIMONIAL RECEIVED: “Palmtopman keeps users mobile”
Our grateful thanks to Ozzie Hall-Osman for his help and assistance in transferring of contacts data from an ageing Psion to a Blackberry Curve via Microsoft Outlook. The original data was speedily transferred to a pst file which was e-mailed back to us for transfer to Outlook and onward to the Blackberry. Thanks to Ozzie for his helpful talk through of this process which has saved re-entering 759 contact details.
Much appreciated,
Deryck Barker & Lady Caroline Ley

Outlook Calendar Sync problem!

07/10/2010

Ok, all was working well as far as my iTunes Sync on my PC running Windows XP and Calendar / Contacts / Notes in Outlook 2003 on my PC and on my iPhone 4. That was until today!!! 😦 When Calendar Sync stopped working!!! 😦 😦 😦
After a 30 minute call to Apple Support (UK) on 0844 208 0611 and me (on my own) going through a series of checks from an Apple email and subsequent Apple web site link; it came to the last fix, having tried all other fixes……………. Yipee! 🙂 🙂 🙂 it worked. Thank goodness for that!
“Thank you, Jason, from Apple Support”.


Multiple iPhone connections via iTunes & PC

05/10/2010

A hard lesson learnt! 🙂 Beware, if you install iTunes on another PC, to connect with iTunes; make sure you sign into iTunes and AUTHORISE the new PC! Recently, I didn’t and when my iPhone connected to iTunes, all my additional apps were uninstalled/deleted!!! 😦 Ok, I’ve more or less re-installed them all, at no cost for those previously paid for; but it’s been a real pain!
So, apparently, you can authorise up to 5 PCs to connect to your iPhone, but just make sure, you sign-in and authorise the PC before connecting your iPhone to it for the first time.
