    As it seems Android 4.4 has a cloud access framework so it could be easy to add cloud support to every app, sounds like synergy to me.

    No doubt on android it will be much more used by cloud services and apps then on webOS, but it is to be seen if it is as OS integrated as in webOS (Contacts,Notes,Calendar,Tasks,Photos,Files) or even more like music,books...

    The version have is 11.3.3387. Sucks pretty bad that I bought the maps and now it's un usable.

    It did work once when I first tested it tho

    Synergy is one of the things I miss most since jumping ship to Android. It's about time someone finally copied it.

    Still seems like a poorly implemented solution. GadgtSpot looked into it and were disappointed by it.

    good find, and we seem not to be alone by thinking webos was far ahead.

    Well it's our longtime webOS fan Patrick Campanale who wrote it, so he might be a bit biased

    And that's totally disappointing news. I've been lurking this thread, wanting someone familiar with Synergy to say this is the new awesome. Here we are though, disappointed to hear another "me too" still couldn't do it.

    So, what, is there something in the fundamental database structure in webOS that makes Synergy possible? Why can't anyone else quite get it right?

    I'm embarrassed to say this, but after all these years I still don't understand what synergy is

    Synergy,

    Synergy is the interaction of multiple elements in a system to produce an effect different from or greater than the sum of their individual effects. The term synergy comes from the Greek word synergia συνέργια from synergos, συνεργός, meaning "working together".

    Synergy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    So the calendar in webOS takes Google, Yahoo, Palm Profile, Exchange, etc... and puts them all together, but yet keeps them separate.

    So the contacts in webOS takes Google, Yahoo, Palm Profile, Exchange, Skype, LinkedIn (used to), etc... and puts them all together, but yet keeps them separate.

    Allows you to take all the things that make your digital life bring them together in the Palm of your hand (from CES 2009 Palm)...

    That's fine... synergy is one of the features you don't think about while using webOS but you'll miss them when you try to move on.

    Basically it is the concept that you have one calendar app and one contacts app and one messaging app and can sync contacts and events from all the different sources into that one app. On other systems you either have a ton of calendar apps or at least a ton of different apps syncing your stuff. It's quite some pain and the main reason my Android-Test-Device knows only a fraction of my contacts (those which are on my google account anyway ).

    Actually in a way Google does not want Synergy. They want everything to be central to them, and the only cloud service you're using if you have an Android device, it's them.
