Lotus Traveler Comes to the iPhone

For those of you who still didn’t know, the recent 8.5.1 release of Lotus Domino came with an additional piece of software called Traveler. This allows Apple’s iPhone to finally sync with Lotus Notes. My October article for Intranet Journal discusses how Lotus Traveler Comes to the iPhone

Ever since Apple’s iPhone was introduced, fans of Lotus Notes lamented the fact that there was no push email solution that supported the IBM Lotus product. You could use IMAP to get your mail, but there was no real-time two-way solution like you could get on a Blackberry. That all changes with the release of Lotus Traveler 8.5.1.

Traveler requires the recently released Lotus Domino 8.5.1 in order to run, but it finally gives Notes fans two-way synchronization of email, calendar and contacts to the built-in iPhone applications. Traveler is included with Domino 8.5.1 and gives you a great reason to upgrade your servers today.

My article goes through installing the software on your Domino server, and then setting up an iPhone to connect to that server to start syncing. It’s drop-dead easy, so if you were on the fence, check out the article and get synching!
