PIM (Personal Information Management) part 2

On the previous part of this series of articles (PIM part1), I was giving an overview of Personal Information Manager architecture and a short example of SyncML.

In this second part we will see some applications using PIM and SyncML.

1. Examples

1.1. Google Calendar

Google Calendar is, as the name suggests, a schedules manager. You can put the anniversaries of your loved ones, make your planing of appointments and even share entries with others.
This service can provide more flexibility by the usage of SyncML and auto synchronize to your local calendar on any android device.

1.2. Google Contacts

The same way as Google Calendar, Google contacts is the contact manager of the global Google solution. It automatically synchronizes your local android device’s address book.

2. XMSCAN products and services

2.1. ScanCard

This application has also a complete address book which allows you to use the contact recognized by the OCR engine. You can synchronize your local address book to the two other products making it an important part of XMSCAN’s pim solution.

2.2. Aipim
