The version of Tomdroid covered in a previous blog post lacked any advanced features like the ability to sync notes. A lot has changed since then, though. The Tomdroid developers have released a new version of the app which boasts a couple of improvements and new features. The most notable addition is the synchronization feature which supports syncing with the Tomboy Web service and SD cards.

For now, the synchronization feature can handle only one-way syncing, though. Using the synchronization feature is supremely easy. Press the Menu hardware button, tap on Settings, and select the desired service. If you want to sync notes with the Tomboy Web service, you must authenticate the Tomdroid app first. To do this, tap on the Service entry, and press the Authenticate button. Once the app has been authenticated, tap on the Sync button in the top-right corner, and the app downloads all your Tomboy notes.

Tomdroid still doesn't allow you to create new notes, but it's only a matter of time before this functionality is implemented. However, even in its current form, Tomdroid still can prove to be an indispensable tool for Tomboy users on the move.
