On the dark side Hotsync uses a "conduit" to sync the other applications with the PalmOne PDA. You can't sync other apps without Hotsync.
The good news is you can try this and if it fails, install the PalmOne software.
I dont own an apple, but I plan on purchasing one within the next few months and I am researching its compatability with my other devices. I bought a Palm PDA knowing that is does support sync with Apple computers. I bought a Palm Z22
I have read on Palm's site that in order to sync my Palm PDA (OS5) I need to install Hotsync and Palm desktop. However I would prefer to use Apple's calendar and addressbook and from Apple's website it seems to imply that I do not need to install Hotsync and I can instead sync successfully using only iSync.
Can anyone clear up the confusing language by both of these companies?
