Chapura updates PocketMirror for TouchPad; Syncs Calendar, Contacts and more with desktop

Earlier in the year when we told you that Chapura had updated their PocketMirror syncing software to work on webOS 2.x devices, we were optimists that they would continue that trend with an update for the TouchPad. Today they've done exactly that; PocketMirror is now available in the TouchPad app catalog as a free download, with an additional free 7 day trial period for new users. If you've been waiting to sync your contacts, tasks and notes between your TouchPad and desktop PC (via Outlook), it's now as easy as connecting to a wireless network and tapping a button.

PocketMirror was designed with the "Getting Things Done" method in mind, making task management simple, and includes your typical webOS 3.0 features (like advanced notifications) to create that familiar user experience. The app currently does not sync your Calendar between PC and TouchPad, due to a limitation in webOS 3.0 (which requires an update from HP, still works in 2.0 devices), but you can expect to see a working sync for your notes, tasks and contacts just as you have with other versions of PocketMirror. Since the app is available for all webOS devices created to date, Chapura doesn't want you to have to purchase a separate license for each device that you want to sync with your desktop; it's just a one time cost of $39.95 for all downloads of PocketMirror, no matter how many devices you install it on.

You can get the updated version of Chapura in the HP webOS App Catalog now for free and try out the 7 day free trial, or head to the company website at the link below to read more details.
