iPad and Windows Live do not mix?

    I'm having a huge issue with getting this to work...

    I have a Windows Phone 7, Windows Live Account and iPad.

    I would like to use the Windows Live Calendar and Todo list and have it sync to my Phone and iPad. Can you figure out where I'm having the problem?

    Yep, the iPad.

    I can sync my calendar events to the default calendar app on the iPad but not the Todo list.

    Not even the Windows Live mobile site has the Todo list support... I have no idea what TODO other then use the Atomic Browser for iPad and fake it as a desktop version.

     

    Any ideas?

    @vesuvius: It's funny how you rely on Microsoft to make a living. Yet you troll forums associated with Microsoft.

    Anyway, hopefully someone can help out with my problem and a moderator (if they exist on here) can handle vesuvius.

     

    Thanks.

    Also you are in the wrong forum, the issue is with your iPad not reading data sent to it from windows live. I would suggest you trying the iPad forums and discuss about it reading data from other providers.

    @vesuvius: "Not even the Windows Live mobile site has the Todo list support"

    If I cannot access my todo list through the Windows Live mobile website. Why should I think that Apple or an iOS developer can provide this functionality?

    Also, it is likely that most users on this forum use Microsoft products as well as Apple products. So someone else might have solved this issue already. You yourself asked about purchasing an iPad.

    You failed at Mechanical Engineering, you are failing at being a good person (although this is probably only because you are behind a computer screen) and you failed at being witty. Your trolling here was completely unsuccessful. I'm sorry your entire day is ruined.

    @bobonecoupon:

    I have not called you pathetic or been sanctimonious and pejorative interjecting scurrilous and warped assumptions.

    I don't have the time to continue this

    I used to use the office Todo list for stuff like groceries and "chores I should probably complete this weekend", but i switched to using oneNote instead.  The UI for the todo list was annoying on win mobile 6.5 and I don't yet have a win 7, so it was the easiest solution.  I'm reasonably sure there is some app out there that will let you work with oneNote.

    That said, other than a few traitors and scaliwags amongst the regulars, you aren't going to find much love when you look for advice on how to make your iBrator work.

    @ScanIAm: OneNote has an Outlook tasks tag that I use a lot. That at least keeps everything in Office sync'd up.

    @kettch:Yeah, I saw that.  And if you 'send to onenote' on a task, it makes it easy to map up. 

    I have a bad habit of keeping too many tasks and reminders and post-its, etc. so I've been trying to cut back on actual tasks.  I seriously had 100+ 'tasks' that were due each day that I'd put there to remind me of stuff.  Borderline OCD and TypeA don't mix well.

    So, instead, I just dump all my super-duper-important dreams, ideas, and plans into oneNote, and then make an effort to prioritize every couple of days.  I only wish I could create a notebook cover for each of my oneNote collections like in grade school.  Rainbows and unicorns would be awesome Smiley
