Thanks for the great post Captain!
Kupe, while Google doesn't support Tasks and Memos, CompanionLink does it by pushing them through APIs that Google supports. CompanionLink has supported task sync from Outlook and Palm Desktop to Google Apps for a couple years now. CompanionLink added notes sync in July 2009.
For Tasks; Google lacks a task API, and Palm Synergy does not appear to support Palm Pre Tasks. For these two reasons, CompanionLink puts Tasks into the Google Calendar which Synergy moves to the Pre. Tasks appear on their due date, or if they lack a due date they will appear "Today". To keep them "fresh" and for added convenience, past-due tasks are collected together on "Today" as a single item rather than having them slip behind on the calendar.
CompanionLink has an automated sync feature you can use to update "Today" by synchronizing every day, or even every hour, to Google from your PC.
For Notes/Memos; Google deprecated their NoteBook application in early 2009, and Palm Synergy support for Memos appears problematic. For this reason, CompanionLink moves memos to the contact app in Google, which Synergy moves to the Pre. CompanionLink adds |M| to the beginning and end of each note. The pipe character is used so notes sort together at the end of the contact list. Notes are searchable using Universal Search. In CompanionLink Notes are not "On" by default, so you need to go into Setup and click to specifically include the notes in the sync.
Look at the bright side; Tasks and Notes are supported, and improvement updates are free, so it can only get Better!
As Captain noted, CompanionLink has a free 14 day free evaluation so you can try it without charge. CompanionLink offers free telephone technical support as well as email support. As the linux quote goes; free software is only free if your time has no value. At CompanionLink we seek a value proposition to provide an effective solution, and for many people that solution includes assistance with configuration, use and updates.
CompanionLink has a policy of not announcing product until it is available for general release. Count on some excitement real soon now as we unveil our latest development which will be available for immediate download. This development will be a free update for all our users. At CompanionLink, we are committed to Pre and to enhancing the business use of webOS platform devices through effective synchronization to PC Desktop applications.
