With the help of BirdieSync you can seamlessly synchronize contacts, events, tasks and emails from your Windows Mobile device, or contacts from your iPhone or Android device with your computer via the Lightning extension installed in Mozilla Thunderbird.
After a fast setup operation that shouldn't give you any trouble, you are welcomed by a user-friendly interface, represented by a large window with a plain and simple structure.
To get started, you can follow steps in a wizard to set up the connection between the PC and mobile device, including the Thunderbird user profile configuration, whether you have its installer or portable version.
In the following stage, you can view available contacts, events, tasks and emails, as well as select the ones you want to copy to the computer, along with missing items you wish to obtain from the PC. The start and end of the sync task is signaled via a message that pops up from the systray. BirdieSync records synchronized items to history that you can later review.
As far as synchronization options are concerned, you can enable automatic sync mode and specify the frequency, modify the default storage time for the synchronized objects in the history area, set an interval time for prompting a warning dialog when the device hasn't been synchronized for a long time, hide the systray message, as well as set up a password to protect the connection between the machine and mobile device.
No error messages popped up in our tests, and the software application didn't hang or crash. It had minimal impact on the computer's performance, thanks to the fact that it needed low CPU and RAM to work properly. Data was swiftly transferred.
To wrap it up, BirdieSync provides you with a reliable and speedy method for synchronizing information between Thunderbird and mobile devices running Windows, Android or iOS, and it can be handled by anyone with ease.
