A new application has appeared on the iPhone
App Store that claims to download your Lotus Notes calendar to your iPhone
without having to use DWA UltraLight.
Written by Jimmy
Mooney from Austin, Texas the
application does have a few requirements
for it to be able to run against your mailfile. The first is that
your mailfile must be accessible via the web so the HTTP task must be running
on your server and the server needs to be visible on the internet. The
second requirement is that you need to add an agent into your mailfile
so the application can extract the calendar data in what I suspect is probably
an xml format that the application can read.
It is not clear from the applications
description if the calendar entries are put into the iPhone’s native calendar
application or if they only display in the applications interface and I
suspect that it is a read only application with no way to create calendar
entries to sync back to your mailfile.
The application is called NotesCal
and costs $2.99 to purchase.
