Mobile App for Android

Info

This feature is unavailable in Public Folders version 5.1 or older.

Now you can access CodeTwo Public Folders also from your Android mobile device. Download the mobile app from Google Play and start working with your tasks, appointments and contacts similarly as with the Outlook Add-in.

After installing the app on your device, you'll notice that it is simple and easy to use. Its main window divides into two parts - top menu bar and the main list of items. The menu bar contains buttons that allow you creating a new item, searching for an existing one, choosing folder for subscription, etc. The number of buttons on the top bar menu depends on the size of your device's screen - if the screen is small then the rest of buttons are available under the device's system menu button (Fig. 1.).
