GO!NotifyLink and TouchDown
should I use TouchDown, a third party application, on my device to synchronize
The TouchDown client enables any Android device to achieve a consistent level of functionality and security.
The variety of Android device models available, while giving users options, often results in differences in functionality across devices. A sampling of Android devices are regularly put through a certification process for use with the GO!NotifyLink ActiveSync Solution (see a list of tested models on the portal at http://gonotifylink.globoplc.com/Android.asp. This often reveals a lack of consistency in functionality and security across models. Use of the TouchDown app, provides a way to maintain a standard of functionality for email and PIM synchronization, as well as device security and management.
