iPad/Gmail/Outlook = Epic Win.

post #1 of 20

*title = Syncing without Syncing literally *

Ok,

This is my FB status, for good reason.

If it's been discovered, be happy i'm sharing it again, as I just did this accidentally, with NO help from the internets, no help from research, just stumbled. But... I feel awesome discovering this!

*** FB Status I am copy pasting here, just cause it's awesome ***

gmail, is awesome... iPad, notes feature, goes to sync'd gmail account automatically (if you choose it in iPad notes), then goes direct from there to gmail, and if loaded in outlook (pick version) under imap setup for outlook, gmail will have a secondary notes section separate from outlook notes, and will automatically REALTIME sync it... (within like 2-5seconds I found out!) O_O gmail, google, is AWESOME

***

yea, Gmail normally is realtime with everything. Why would you be taking notes on an ipad anyway? that is kinda odd. But anyway, yea I can update my calendar on my blackberry and it is on my gmail before i can open it up.

It's odd indeed, but think of it this way. I go to class and when the professor is lecturing, and I'm taking notes, I use my iPad, no paper no problem, with its long battery life it can last all day. You just use the notepad to doodle or take notes. Everyone in class looks at you like your from the future.

Or you could use a real computer to take notes, no paper, no need to transfer stuff to email, no problem. And before you say i can't doodle on my laptop, take a look.
Fancy picture.

My actual laptop on my desk

another picture in tablet mode

I was running XP at the time because that is what came on it, those pictures were the day i got it.
I am now running windows 7 on it. So not only can i take notes and such, i can do anything a PC can do.

And see awesomeness, I know how ya feel man. U just came upon this accidentally, I know it's probably know, but it's like, ooooh purdy, I actually found out something I didn't know for once, or googled. Almost like a big eureka moment for me ^_^ .

I think IMAP deserves more credit than you give it. This wouldn't be possible if it weren't for IMAP.

I haven't looked up the diff between imap / pop, but I'm under the impression imap is better, as pop you have to refresh to make work, or some thinger like such.

That's exactly right. P-IMAP (Push IMAP) is even better. I think that's what gmail uses on the ipad.

Probably, but I take notes on anything, use it for grocery lists, etc... or just general thoughts, and seeing it auto sync... was actually a bit mind blowing... Now I can't really. "ahem" put my own thoughts into notes, as if my fiance comes home, opens up outlook, see's the notes.. hmm what thoughts I could have... woops... ^_^
