It's useless except with the encrypted phone. This is the main reason I still use Touchdown for work email/calendar/contacts.
XDA Developers was founded by developers, for developers. It is now a valuable resource for people who want to make the most of their mobile devices, from customizing the look and feel to adding new functionality. Are you a developer?
