What can you do with this new feature?

  • Generate invoices whilst reading your e-mails
  • Create estimates for your clients in other countries, using Safari to look for current exchange rates
  • Plan team meetings whilst referring to your iOS calendar
  • Compare your companies contacts with your iOS contacts
