Help: app for tasks, memos, calendar, contacts that doesn't sync using "the cloud"?
Have spent most of the day trying to find an app or apps to let me sync my old palm memos, to do lists, calendar and contacts between the Incredible and my laptop WITHOUT requiring me to have them stored online at Google or elsewhere. Discovered that HTC Sync can sync Outlook calendar and contacts to the Incredible using a USB connection. So if I convert my Palm calendar and contacts to Outlook, I can use HTC Sync for calendar and contacts only. But that doesn't solve the problem for memos and to do lists. Another thread on this site had some good ideas for how to sync those 2 using various cloud applications, but I really want to find something that doesn't require me to store that stuff online. Of course, the best solution would be one app that would sync all 4 items using a USB cable or some other hard-wired connection. But if I have to use a couple different apps, well, beggars can't be choosers, right? Any ideas? Thanks.
CompanionLink can sync Palm Desktop to Android
Hi runbikeswimfly, I'm surprised you haven't stumbled across CompanionLink - it's exactly what you're looking for.

CompanionLink syncs contacts, calendar, tasks and memos directly between Android and Palm Desktop over a USB cable (you can use Outlook if you want, both are fully supported).
Since Android lacks native tasks/to-dos and notes/memos apps, and most Palm users find the contacts and calendar lack essential business functionality, CompanionLink has built its own suite of contacts, calendar, tasks and notes apps for Android called DejaOffice. DejaOffice was built with old Palm die-hards in mind with features like color-coded categories, private (password protected) records, and advanced search and sort options.
CompanionLink USB runs $39.95, with a 14-day free trial available at www.companionlink.com/android.
DejaOffice is available free on the Android Market, with more info over at www.dejaoffice.com.
I hope this helps you out, let me know if you have any questions.
