Name: Bring The Wine (version 2.0)

Welcome to Bring The Wine, the task manager that syncs your phone with your Exchange account. Let's be honest, it's usually ok to forget the milk once in a while. But you should always remember to bring the wine to that party.

Website

Download

What's New

v2.0 has an redesigned interface and allows tasks to be shown in categories. It also includes an improved sync mechanism, better notifications and other minor improvements.

v1.2 comes with faster Exchange sync, better notification and improved reminder.

v1.1 has a slightly simplified interface. It also has improved sync handling and fixes several bugs.

v1.0 has a redesigned setting interface. It also fixed a sync issue with incomplete tasks and includes various graphic performance improvements.

v0.9 adds Exchange Server 2003 support. It also addressed several minor stability and performance issues.

v0.8 introduces a new layout and allows easier access to tasks. It also adds Bing's photo of the day as an option of background photo.

v0.7 adds category support, customizable view and landscape mode. It also resolves issues related editing HTML note, detecting standalone mode and dimissing task.

v0.6 adds reminder support, live tile support and the option to enable/disable background. Now you can not only edit reminder of tasks, you can also receive reminders on your phone (just like old times). Live tile will show the number of incomplete tasks when Bring The Wine is pinned.

Features
* Sync tasks with your Exchange account. Don't use Exchange? Standalone mode allows to manage your tasks without an Exchange account.

* Sync with Exchange Server 2003, 2007 and 2010.

* View, add and update tasks. Supports features like notes, categories, start/due dates and reminders.

* Receive reminders about your tasks on your phone, just like on your PC.

* Customize how tasks are shown. See the information that matters to you.

* Use that slideout keyboard to type faster in landscape mode.

Why We Made It
I used Tasks on my Touch HD everyday, and one of the reasons I'm sticking with WM 6.5 is the lack of Exchange Task support. I realized MSFT isn't going to add this anytime soon, so some friends and I made one ourselves and share with you.

Bring The Wine allows you to sync tasks between Exchange Server and your Windows Phone. It's currently in an early stage, but more features will be added soon and kinks will be ironed out.

Bring The Wine support most Exchange installations. , as long as they're Exchange Server 2003 or later.

If you also want to sync tasks on your Windows Phone, give it a try! Any suggestion and feedback would be appreciated =)

That's what I've been waiting since I flashed WP7 on my HD2. Currently downloading. I will give feedback after I tested around a bit.

[Edit]

First feedback:

Sadly it can't connect to the server. I could probably be because my username differs from the first part of the E-Mail address. There shouldn't be any certificate issues since I installed them correctly and E-Mail, contacts and calender work just fine.

This application looks very promising. I have been looking for a way to synchronize tasks through with WP7 because I rely heavily one them. Unfortunately I can't synchronize my tasks with the program and I believe it may be due to the exchange server but it does function for me on Windows Mobile 6.5. My exchange is through Zimbra and I think I've read that Zimbra uses or is similar to Exchange 2003. Is there any possibility of adding support Zimbra?

What error message did it say? Or if you can PM me your email address or the server URL you tried to connect, I'll check to see what might be the problem.

@oaa8
I'm not familiar with Zimbra. But if it uses Exchange Server 2003, then it's not supported, as Bring The Wine relies on some features that're only available on Exchange Server 2007 SP1 and newer versions.

Great, I've been looking for such app since I got my WP7.

I couldn't get it working with Hotmail (Live) account thou. When I type in m.hotmail.com as server name, the application responds:
"The server is not an Exchange Server."

I thought it should work with Hotmail account: http://arstechnica.com/microsoft/new...activesync.ars

Question Self SSL
Hi!

Any chance to support self signed certificates? I read your first post and I acknowledged it but do you have any plan to implement it?

Regards
Cina.

@omikr0n:
Yes Hotmail does support Exchange ActiveSync, but it doesn't support some features Bring The Wine relies on (just like Exchange Server 2003). Currently we're not aware of any way to support them, but we are exploring other options.

@cina:
Self-signed certificate will be supported in version 0.3, which should be available on Marketplace within a week.

Somehow I can't connect to my mail server. Does it have to be https?? Because my outlook is setup as mobile.domain.com and for sure it it doesn't require a secure connection. All our phones work fine with that. But somehow I am getting the "An error has occured" error... By the way, the correct word is "occurred".
