    There are two add-ins in my Outlook that were put there by iTunes installation:

    -the first one is Outlook Change Notifier (description is "Detects changes to contacts and calendars"
    -the second one is iTunes Outlook Addin.

    The second one is disabled (inactive). Will I have to enable this one before I set up syncing between iPad and Outlook, or does it work without it? I wasn't able to find any details on what it does, except some unverified claims that it has to do with iCloud sync (which I'm not using0.

    I tried syncing yesterday (without that add-on), and I can confirm it worked just fine. But for some reason Tasks don't get synchronized with Reminders (from what my Google search told me, that's a "feature").
    Also, is there any sync-log generated, just to be on the safe side (Nokia Suite always displays it, so you can review what was changed or deleted)?

    You can't sync the Reminder's app with Google tasks. Without knowing exactly what you found in your search, I can't guess what feature they were actually talking about. Depending on your Google account setup(s) you can only sync Mail, Calendars, Contacts, and Notes (to the best of my knowledge). Notes is only a half-solution outside of keeping iOS devices synced.

    There are third party apps that will sync with your Google tasks, but I'm not familiar with any of them.
