    I'm looking for alternatives to MM for use in keeping two iphones and multiple macs in sycnh. What's out there?

    I'm relatively happy with email and contact management as my wife and I use two seperate accounts that don't try to stay in synch. The "push"-ness of these two features works well enough for me.

    Calendars, on the other hand, doesn't. I need to be able to share calendars back and forth between my iPhone, my desktop iCal and my wife's iPhone and iCal.

    Any suggestions?

    Take care,

    You may have to combine multiple systems. What I do is use Google Calendar to manage shared calendars. I then use SyncMyCal (Windows Outlook Environment) to Sync my Google Calendars with Outlook. I then Sync Outloo with MobileMe which is then Pushed to my iPhone. I have about 10 Shared Google Calendars.

    Check out Mail2Web.

    It is a Microsoft exchange type calendar, mail, contacts syncing service....

    For free.

    Can't you share your calendar in iCal (Publish I think) and then your wife can subscribe to it?

    For some idiotic reason, Apple has not made subscription calendars (even local subscriptions like Birthdays) available on the iPhone, at least not through MobileMe.

    Do you use Entourage to manage your calendar then? Or just the web interface?
