SimpleSYN Mobile version history

Version 1.0 (Build 9710) released 1/11/2022:
  • Fixes an error while synchronizing calendar data which caused some Android devices to not be able to edit appointments at all.
  • Fixes an error in the association of meeting requests and appointments. This error caused the iPhone or iPad to show the appointment twice.
  • Fixes an error while importing time zone information in meeting requests. Depending on the time zone, meeting requests could not be send. Also fixes an error in time zones without a daylight saving time.
  • After a meeting request was send, the meeting was not correctly flagged as being send.
Version 1.0 (Build 9601) released 12/2/2021:
  • Fixes an error in the inital configuration page. The settings were sometimes not immediately saved which causes the setup of the devices to fail.
  • Enhances the compatibility with more restrictive network environments. A fallback to plain HTTP can now happen if no WebSocket connection to our central servers is available.
  • Some internal errors were not logged correctly, which made diagnosing them difficult.
  • Fixes a crash during the detection of the synchronization status.
  • Fixes a crash while downloading an update.
  • Minor optimizations and fixes.
Version 1.0 (Build 9516) released 11/16/2021:

  • Fixes another bug when synchronizing recurring appointments.
  • Fixes a possible crash if importing a new item failed.
  • Some items were not displayed correctly on the device, if the items did not contain information about the used encoding. This was primarily the case when synchronizing notes.
  • Additional minor fixes and improvements.
Version 1.0 (Build 9428) released 10/28/2021:
  • Fixes an error when adding calendar items. Some time zones were not correctly converted, which lead to unsynchronized items.
Version 1.0 (Build 9411) released 10/12/2021:

  • NEW: Simplifies the manual connection configuration.
  • Fixes an error when persisting deselected folders in "Configuration". Some times the selection was not saved correctly.

Note: If you have synchronized monthly recurring appointments, they will only be corrected during the next synchronization. You can either change those appointments in Outlook to force a synchronization, or you can remove the SimpleSYN Mobile account on your device and recreate it. This will force a full re-synchronization of every item.
