Found my solution to sync Macbook Pro, iPad and Android phone on Maverick OS

I need all of these to sync in addition to another backup Macbook Pro [Fuji X-E2, 55-200mm, ISO 2000, ƒ/4, 1/500]
Having my email, contacts and calendar on my Macbook Pro, iPad and Android phone was at one time working, then Apple introduced Mavericks OS.

What I had learned through one of my clients is Microsoft Exchange works great doing this. I had an account with the client and no matter which device I was on everything synced great.

When Apple stopped supporting syncing of their iCalendar and Contacts with Outlook 2011 with their Mavericks OS I had to find something.

The solution was simple, find a exchange hosting solution. Since I was already using Godaddy I checked out their Office 365.

Watch the video here and you will get the basic idea of what is does for you.

One more thing I am now doing that I could not do before using my backup Macbook Pro running Outlook. Now I can use my backup Macbook Pro without fear of screwing up my email, contacts or calendar.

Since I already had an account with Godaddy the additional cost was only $3.99 a month. I went ahead and paid for two years for $95.

I use Outlook as my assistant. It keeps me organized.
