    When you see so many pure-positive reviews, it’s sometimes because we know that fans of a product will thumbs-down (or “unhelpful”) an accurate and honest review that finds flaws in a product they love. That really squelches negative reviews.

    I must always be connected to three email accounts, two of which are different (and tricky) Exchange servers. My Android phones can connect, but most fuller email clients have a hard time. The Kindle Fire basic email only handles POP and IMAP. Most of the other Kindle Fire-compatible email apps (e.g. K-9, which is free) couldn’t configure for them.

    TouchDown does. No problem there. But only one account at a time. To use the other, I must switch profiles, effectively logging out of one and into the other.

    It is the easiest and fullest product available if one Exchange account is sufficient for you though.

    Much better than exchange through native app. Allows use of tasks too. Contact browsing is better with better placed slider and company info also listed on contact button.

    We have a corporate exchange server and we are required to use this App with ActiveSync on most Android phones to meet security concerns.

    It took quite a while to set it up properly, but once I finally figured it all out, it is working great. I have zero complaints regarding day to day usage and I like that I can see my tasks as well as calendar and email and contacts (this may be the ONLY app out there that will sync tasks). I rely heavily on Tasks in Exchange and this does not seem to have a size limit either (my old Microsoft phone would mercilessly cut them off if they got too long in Exchange).

    I like that the corporate required password is not blocking my phone, just email. I like the summary that brings all the important tasks and calendar items and emails on one main entry screen. I like the HUGE buttons to enter my password.

    Since it is primary designed to work with Microsoft Outlook/Exchange, I am suprised to find that they did not follow the contact field names more closely. Mostly with addresses. They have 3 boxes without description. In Outlook each box represents Home/Business/Other and within each, there are multiple fields for Street, City, State, ZipCode. In Touchdown, you have to know ahead of time which box is Home and that one box is the entire address and each line is a separate field. VERY non-intuitive.

    I would like it even more if it showed my email items in my todo list as it does in Outlook instead of just tasks and calendar items.

    It took a while to find it, but there are lots of options for notification sounds under the eMail Alerts button.

    <Update: My firm recently updated their exchange server and I was having trouble with Touchdown not seeing the categories properly. I cleared the data and uninstalled Touchdown and reinstalled it and it works beautifully now. Every single complaint I had has been addressed and it looks more polished as well.

    Complaints addressed: You can now link back to edit the contact within Touchdown from the Android/Phone contact list. You can now link back to view the contact info from the header of an email. You can now click and delete multiple emails at once and they are now also deleted on the Exchange server as well (not just the phone). I am a VERY happy camper right now.>
