Did you know that MyPhoneExplorer not only synchronizes Ecco but also Outlook, GMail, Thunderbird, Lotus Notes, Windows Contacts and Windows Calendar to your Android Phones and Tablets?
Compared to the available free version, the US Version of MyPhoneExplorer ads EccoPro Synchronization and is tested “Malware, Bloatware and Advertising Free”.

Windows 8.1 users should restore their EccoPro Help Menu tab by downloading an update from our Member Download Area at http://creativeservices.us.

FJSoft released a new free version 1.8.5 without EccoPro Synchronization! The only difference is Category-Support for MPE Notes and MPE Tasks and an added confirmation window if there are more than XX actions to do.
Sadly there is no specific category field in Ecco but the “type” field for a phone book entry with “Unfiled”, “Personal” and “Business” with the ability to add custom categories. As far as we remember the Palm Desktop allowed to sync up to 9 categories.
We are checking if we can add some type of category field to the Ecco Edition. Our problem, the field is not part of the central Ecco data structure, the “Type” folder/column as well as the “Priority” folder/column can be deleted. “Priority” is just a pop-up list with “High”, “Medium” and “Low”. “Call Status” is a check-mark folder/column. “Call Back”, “Left Msg” and “Last Call” are just different folders which do not implement a category-like handling.
FJ added a link to the MyPhoneExplorer Ecco Edition to his Log File at www.fjsoft.at. If you are an EccoPro user do not download the free version. The free version 1.8.5 does not cover EccoPro. You should subscribe to the MyPhoneExplorer Ecco Edition which is tested “Malware, Bloatware and Advertising Free”.

For those who would like to install the MyPhoneExplorer Android Client without using the Google Play Store, MyPhoneExplorer does host an “.apk” file in the program data folder, the file is called “mpeclient.apk”. If the connection is build throught USB then the client gets installed automatically on the device. Also, it is planned to add the sync of reminders for the recurrent date/time functionality for “MPE Tasks”. Once this is done, reminders for Ecco’s recurrent task items would be adapted.

Today, May 17 is the 20th Anniversary of the release of EccoPro. On that day in 1993 Arabesque published a Press Release signed by Delayne Giardini.
Delayne, who now lives in Mexico, wrote me 4 weeks ago: “Friedhelm…, what are you planning for the anniversary? Do you know Blair Bryant? He was the Marketing Manager at Arabesque when we launched Ecco. Also, Walt Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal was a big fan 20 years ago. It would be interesting to chat with him about Ecco.
Thanks to all EccoPro devotees, including both Yahoo support groups, the beta tester and those who carry for many years the main burden of answering daily support messages. Not to forget the developers, YSWT, Slang with his Ecco Extension or Franz Josef in Austria. Source: News Release May 17, 1993.
