For a while now I have been using MobileMe to sync my contacts and calendar events across all of my electronic devices. I currently have two desktops, two laptops and two iOS devices that are being sync’ed using MobileMe.
For the most part I really enjoy adding a calendar event from my iPhone and having it show up on my desktop within a few minutes. It’s really handy. The one thing that I don’t like is that, for some reason, I sometimes get either a duplicate calendar event or I get a duplicate calendar on Microsoft Outlook.
All I ask from MobileMe is to sync my calendar and my contacts. Please make it easier and don’t duplicate my events and contacts with every upgrade you make. Before I upgraded my MobileMe calendar to the new beta I had one calendar. Now, I have one calendar on MobileMe and I have two calendars in Outlook. My Outlook calendar has a “calendar” and a “calendar from mobileme”.
I’m not happy with it and If Google would come out with a way to sync contacts over the air I would switch to Google and would save myself $99 a year.
I just completed a “downgrade” of MobileMe Calendar Beta and all is back to normal. If you do the same I recommend closing Microsoft Outlook while doing the downgrade and then restart your computer afterward.
