iCal Sync Now Up-To-Date is the first product designed to convert calendar data contained in Now Software's Now Up-To-Date calendar program to Apple's iCal.

iCal Sync Now Up-To-Date creates a new calendar on sync in iCal called "Now Up-To-Date" to copy your events, banners, calls, to-do, and appointments. If you select the "AutoSync" feature then an additional new calendar called "iCalSyncNUTD" will be created in iCal and an AutoSync event added that will re-sync your Now Up-To-Date calendar every 24 hours based on your previous sync options.

Broken in Snow Leopard. I emailed the developer asking if an update was pending, and got no reply.

I want to love this program. I'm having no end of trouble getting all my data to the new iphone, through ical as it seems a lot of people are. This program seemed like the remedy but it's frustrating. There are no instructions that come with the demo down load firstly.

There are no calendars to select or to line up. I have blank boxes unlike the picture on their website that shows calendars listed. Nothing I do will make them appear either. (Anyone got any bright ideas???)

No one has answered my request by email for help at the company. I can't even see now how I got the email address because it's not that clearly marked on their website.

It all seems like such a good idea but totally frustrating to get it going.

It work, kinda. Have been using this for a while, and only once did it sync the todo's. Once. The sync also doesn't get all calender events.
Usually its 95% accurate, and there are numerous times there are dup's & triplicates.

Overall, at the price it does fill a need, and seems to be updated regularly. I would recommend it, as NightHawk's had numerous delays.

I have now been using this very usefull utility for us Now freeks for close to two months and it workspretty well.
I occasionally (twice so far) had to through Preferences away.

The only poor thing in their service is really the Sales approach ( in my case: " sorry if you are from Luxembourg you can not buy!") was not a satisfactory reason.
After I screamed to get my money to them and I finally got the product, I am again a most happy Now user.

Considering that the Developper knows that this product will die when John of NowSoftware will inch'Allah give birth to his MNightHawk, we should not be too demanding and enjoy his solution!

Since my previous posting of a week ago, I have indeed received a link from the Developer to download the software. The download worked flawlessly and I indeed received the programs. However, I still believe that no purchaser should be left in limbo for twenty-seven hours as I was. They need to revamp their system to be more customer oriented.

Now, about the software itself. Currently, in my case, at least, neither the AbSync program nor the iCal Sync Now Up-To-Date programs work as expected. The first mentioned program syncs the majority of my contacts, but inexplicably refuses to copy over forty of the entries. Even after trying multiple times, deleting preferences, using a second computer, etc. And since I have 3000 contacts in my database, I don't know which of them are the forty that didn't copy. Further, there are only pre-prescribed fields copied over. There is no latitude as to which specific fields are copied. And the note field doesn't copy at all.

The Now Up To Date module will only copy two of my categories. I have five categories that need to copy. And I am sure other people have more than five. This makes the program utterly useless to me.

To their credit, Tech support has responded to my several e-mails to them and has released a new version of AbSync -- but it still doesn't copy my forty contacts. So the program is still only partially functional for me. They have yet to respond to my Now Up To Date problem.

I am holding out hope and giving them the benefit of the doubt. I will continue to report when and if they get it to work. Until then, I'd recommend holding your wallet close until they have the thing up and running as advertised.

Folks, be aware of the unconventional ordering system provided by this company.

I ordered both applications offered by this company as I just upgraded to an iPhone and I have to make the sad departure from the Now programs so as to have access to all my material on my new device.

I paid through PayPal and received a confirmation that the transaction went through.

And that was it. No e-mail directing me to a link. No instructions on their website about how to get the software. Nothing. Further, there is no download area visible on the site.

And worse, when I log in it claims that I have no outstanding orders. And the tracking section shows no items, either. Basically, it looks as if my ten bucks went into space.

And forget trying to contact them. There is no phone number on the site. And the two e-mail addresses listed have not replied back.

I'm trying to give them the benefit of the doubt and I am hoping that their staff is just on vacation in Tahiti for a week, or something. But this is very bad juju in today's era of instant transactions and instant gratification.

If they respond and get the software to me, I will update this posting accordingly. But as of this moment, I'd be wary, if I were you. At least until they put a better system into place.

Company shopping cart is a joke! I wanted to buy this until encountering it.

It worked great for my small office of four users. My IT consultant and I agree it's the best $5.00 I ever spent. (He charged me $25 to tell me that!)

purchased 1.12 works ok on 10.5 except all to do's are marked not done when they get to iCal. Drives me nuts since I use that a lot. Support said they were looking into it.
Not happy having paid the money. Couldn't spot the bug since the demo is so limited.

OK, I got my download link and it works now. All seems good. Running OS 10.5.2. Even the notes fields copied over, yay.

Keep in mind that there is a delay (in my case, a few hours) between paying and getting the download link.

After 12 years of use, I can finally ditch Now Up to Date and Contact.
