    I can't believe that out of all the apps out there that there is not one with the basic capability of ancient Microsoft Outlook. The Ipad is the coolest thing ever and there are so many off the chart apps, it is hard to believe that not one manages email, calendar, contacts, to do's. There are seperate app's for each of these tasks but none that combine them to one daily organizer. Simple features like linking contacts to events in the calendar, linking documents to contacts profiles, attaching a document to emails, and push management for all of the above.

    If anyone knows of a solution, please let me know. I love the ipad, I just wish I could find a solution that worked.

    Thanks

    If you have an Outlook account that allows syncing, you will have all you need. I have an account at work that I am sync with and it notifies me of e-mails on all of my accounts, and reminds me of events, etc.

    syncing

    thanks for the response. I know I can sync to the ipad that is not my problem.
    If the ipad calendar,email, etc. would allow the things I put in the original post I would just use them but they suck worse than Outlook. They don't allow much.

    I'm anxious to see the future possibilities of apps that do just what you're asking for.

    Btw cjgrace, Im from Alexandria, good to see some local activity around here. Also, we have a fab plant located in Denham Springs.

    I dont see any problem with how it is now. Apples way of thinking is that they have an app for each thing, Contacts, Calendar, Email... They have a team for each one that only has to focus on making the one app and its function work good. They dont have to worry about all the teams trying to combine everything into one app and trying to get it all to work together without problems (like MS does).

    A lot of stuff your asking for can already be done for those apps its just a matter of getting out of the MS Outlook way of thinking.

    I've also been using OS 4.0 and there are updates to these apps making them more usable. I love how they now give you the option to check all emails for all your accounts in one inbox now.

    The applets on the iPad don't come close to the functionality of Outlook.

    I'd love to be able to "drag" and e-mail message to my ToDo list and automatically create an item, or to drop a threaded message into a meeting.

    Perhaps we should all be e-mailing the Documents To Go folks about their next iPad product?

    ?????

    I would love to know how these apps in the ipad already do what I'm asking. Tell me how to attach a document to an email, or link a contact to a calendar event. You say that you can't see a reason to attach a document to a contact, I own a wedding photography business, www.cjgrace.com (shameless plug) and I need to be able to attach a copy of my customers contract, itinerary for the wedding, etc. to their contact profile.

    The bottom line is I have had Mac's and PC's. I am not posting this post to get in the old argument pitting one against the other. I just want something that works.

    Hi Bill

    I couldn't agree more. It is amazing that with all the smart creators and companies wanting to profit off of the mobile app tsunami that they haven't come up with an awesome organizer yet. I know I'm not the only one looking for this functionality. Thanks for the post:)

    My problem with the way Outlook syncs with iPad (or iPhone, for that matter) is that I have no control over how they are displayed, i.e., by name or by company. It would be nice if I remembered every single one of the names in my 1,753 entries, but alas, I don't. I can usually remember the company though ... so if I could scroll through all the entries for XYZ Company, I could find it.

    I just want the stuff on my iPad to look like the stuff in my Outlook ... filed by last name if I want, and company name if I prefer. After all, that's why Outlook has the "File As" field. But it doesn't carry over ...

    Todo for iPad is a pretty good application for some basic organization tasks. The price is a bit much considering what you get, however.

    Palm had better apps

    I used to be an avid palm user and they had some tremendous apps that tied in all of your basic productivity functions. You were able to schedule appointment from your contacts list. Actually what I would really like is to be able to schedule my contacts on my calendar right from the contact screen. Is that so hard? I was thinking about Bento but I think that the problem is that the Ipad doesn't have native calendar and todo databases. If it did then you could link them easier. I actually don't think it has a todo database at all.

    It is a pain searching app after app for this functionality.

    It sounds like you need DejaOffice! DejaOffice is a suite of contacts, calendar, tasks and notes apps for iPhone and iPad. Regarding your contacts, DejaOffice will let you sort by first, last, or company name. It shows the company name in the main contacts list, and you can also do a quick search to filter your contacts by a certain company.

    [​IMG]
    The screenshot above is for the iPhone, but you get the picture (DejaOffice is written specifically for the iPad to take advantage of the larger screen). DejaOffice uses the native contacts and calendar database on the iPhone/iPad, and is compatible with CompanionLink to sync with your PC. DejaOffice is available at no cost from the App Store and at www.dejaoffice.com

    You guys make great points, I love my iPad, but it is a long way from being able to replace my Macbook Pro. I find I can get by for about 1/2 a day before I run across something that makes me drag out the laptop.

    Will there be apps one day that make it possible to abandon my laptop completely?

    I think so, as we progress towards cloud computing, I think a small device like thie Ipad will be able to do everything for most people, we are just not there yet, give it time.

    I agree, I used my MacBook for 4 hours yesterday, editing an large email list for a class reunion. Took me about a minute of looking before I realized that Numbers was not on the MacBook, duh, but finally had to resort to OpenOffice Spreadsheet as just was not comfortable with the Numbers on the iPad. This is the First time I have used the MacBook except for ripping movies to put on the iPad and syncing the iPad since April 3rd.

    The programs will come, because the money will flow toward these app makers. The hardware has only been out there 2 months and is exciting to look at the new iPhone capabilities and the OS updates as opening even more doors.

    Anyone heard much from the naysayers who said the iPad would be a flop lately?? Why??? Cause their mouths are full of crow.

    The app that would solve a lot

    The one app that would solve a lot of the whole needing an app thing is datebook by pimilco software. It was awesome on the palm interface and it would do everything I need to do on my iPad in terms of client tracking and appointment setting. That is an awesome app. And if it came to the iPad I would actually pay for it. "a pirate, a pirate, a pirate goes argh"

    I think what most people are looking for is going to be more than an app, it is going to be the linking of things together and that is only now starting to come with the next OS update.
