About 90 days ago, we sent out an email and video asking for our SyncAcross beta testers to provide candid feedback on the idea of BluCapp creating a standalone address book cleanup tool.
The response rate was incredible! Thank you to the huge number of insiders that responded.
I just finished shooting a quick video that releases the results of the survey with some pretty surprising details. It turns out that you and our insider group of SyncAcross beta users and friends are serious connectors! In the video I share the details on the type of platforms where the group manages contacts and a statistic on the iPhone that blew me away!
What’s amazing is how supportive you have been in our effort to build the next generation of tools that solve your address book problems.
I’m super excited about the product we’re building together!
Check out the survey video here:
The response from our last video talking about our idea of spinning out a new stand-alone tool that will automatically clean up your address book was overwhelmingly positive. As a result, we’ve been hard at work making it happen.
I just wanted to let you know that we’re close to releasing our first version of this product, so, please stay tuned and look for a release announcement soon.
I also want you to know that we’re continuing to work on building out our next rev of SyncAcross. It’s going to take a bit more time and we hope to send out additional SyncAcross beta invites in the coming weeks. Lots of great new features in store for you!
About 90 days ago, we sent out a survey to all of our 1,000+ beta test group as well as a few additional friends to find out if duplicate contacts was a real problem for our users. It turns out, it’s a huge problem, in fact, a much bigger problem then we ever expected!
After seeing the results, we immediately started to work on creating a standalone address book cleanup tool. It’s taken a few months, but it is almost ready and I wanted to let everyone know it will be coming soon.
Here’s the original video I created for the survey. We hope to update you in the next few weeks.
It’s been some time since our last update and I figured it was time to come up for some air. Hey it’s Spring after all and the weather in Seattle has been spectacular.
We really appreciate all of the interest that keeps pouring in from SyncAcross fans from around the world. We love the requests from users wanting to get involved in our beta program. We have taken the great feedback we have received from our early beta testers and have been in deep dive mode for the last several months. I want everyone following our progress to know that we’ve got some great updates coming in the next few months, so stay tuned!
We want to thank everyone who has contacted us through email, twitter, facebook and smoke signal about getting in on the SyncAcross invitation only beta. For those who did receive a beta invite, we want to thank you for all of your great feedback to date. We really appreciate and love our beta testers!
We’ve been focused these past weeks on improving the overall performance of the site as well as adding a few new spiffy features to keep all of your data in sync between Outlook, Gmail, Google Apps and Mac platforms.
With SyncAcross, you are able to sync your Contacts and Calendars between GoogleApps and Gmail, GoogleApps and GoogleApps and of course Gmail and Gmail accounts. Plus, any other combination you can think of between Mac, Outlook and Google.
More details coming soon! Look for an announcement mid-December with more beta invites on the way.

If you have more than one Gmail account you regularly use or if you use Google Apps for work and Gmail at home, it can be a real challenge to keep all of your contacts and calendar information in sync across two or more Google accounts.
With SyncAcross, we have added support for syncing multiple Google accounts as part of our sync platform. Simply add your Google accounts to SyncAcross and all of your contacts and calendar data will automatically stay in sync regardless of which Google account you use to update your data. You can even configure the service to sync one way in or out depending upon how you want your updates to flow.
Syncing multiple Google accounts also helps Google Voice users to maintain access to their Google Apps contact list while using Google Voice within their Gmail account. With Google Voice, you have to associate your number with a Google Account, but it doesn’t yet support Google Apps accounts. This is important for Google Apps users to know because your Gmail account contacts become your Google Voice contacts.
With SyncAcross, if you are a Google Voice user, you can now sync contacts between your Google Apps and Gmail accounts to have access to all of your Google Apps contact data while using Google Voice.
We’re super excited to be able to offer this functionality within our sync platform. Please give it a try and let us know how it is working for you!
