CompanionLink now enables sync with Windows Live and Windows 8

Posted by Harry On January - 2 - 2012Comments Off on CompanionLink now enables sync with Windows Live and Windows 8

I have previously blogged here about CompanionLink, and I have been given some exciting news from them – they have confirmed with me that Windows 8 is now compatible.

It also syncs with Windows Live now as well, so it can connect to your Windows Phone.

CompanionLink are constantly adding new devices to sync with your contacts, for example the new Amazon Kindle Fire. They have also provided me with a promotional code, SYNCKINDLE, so that CompanionLink for Google is just $39.95.
