    computer idiot needs help with contact management issues

    For anyone out there that reads this, please don't laugh. I use an HP Presario as my "main" computer. All of my softwarde aps are on it. I have been using Anytime Organizer for calendaring and contact management. I recently bought an Iphone and an Ipad for myself and my two bosses. I have been trying to (so far unsuccessfully) utilize the Ipads and Iphones by "syncing" them to the PC. Although the company that produces the software suggested the problem would be solved by purchasing an upgrade (which I did), the issues remain unresolved. All information I read suggest that I will need to purchase the Outlook software. Any suggestions? Experiences ? Ideas? This would include tips on multiple users and multiple calendars and address books.

    Sincerely,
    LFE

    I took a quick look at Anytime Organizer. It says it will sync with iPad and iPhone, but isn't too specific on how.

    However it also says it will sync with Google. Since iOS Calendars and Contacts can also sync with Google's services you can use Google as a central hub for your information. There are quite a few advantages to doing it this way; immediate sync as long as you have internet access, the ability to share calendars with other people, etc.

    You won't be able to keep groups for you contacts on the iPhone and probably Google, but you would have probably lost that with a direct sync as well.

    Good luck.

    Here are some links that may help beyond the default GMail setup found in Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars; Add Account.

    Add calendars to IMAP setup.

    Sync Contacts via CardDAV
