OOfy for iPhone

The clever people over at Polyideas have come up with this simple, straight forward little app for the iPhone. If you are regularly out of the office on business, but keep forgetting to set your out of office notification then this is for you!

OOfy has been developed around Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, and even though the site claims it’s unable to tell if it will work on 2003, I have tested it on our 2003 server and it works perfectly.
Don’t let the simple interface put you off. The message text box can fit quite a lot of text in, and seems to have no problems transferring it. My out of office message is quite large and detailed, OOfy has no problems handling it at all.
This is easiest enough that even the end user can set up and use, with little help from the IT Staff.
All you will need to know is if your company using outlook web access, the URL to the access and if it uses SSL or not. Simply input the information into OOfy, along with your username and password and your set!
The latest version (1.1) boasts Exchange Server 2010 support – I only have access to an 03 server currently so I can’t test this. 
If your worried about the security of your username and password, you will be pleased to hear it’s all stored securely in the devices ‘keychain’.
Not bad for £0.59!
