Notes Pro for Lotus Notes
By JM Interactive, LLC
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Featured in PC Magazine's Top Apps for the Business iPhone
With NotesPro you can view your Lotus Notes email, calendar, group or personal contacts and todos - all on your iPhone.
NotesPro requires no sync between your PC and any other 3rd party servers to run. This means you can get true over-the-air data directly from your Lotus Notes server - unlike other Lotus Notes to iPhone solutions which require you to first sync your data to their server and then require you to download your data from their server (often with monthly subscription costs!).
Additionally, our solution never requires your data be given to a third party. All data is accessed with your Lotus Notes username and password directly between your Lotus Notes server and your iPhone.
Please visit http://bit.ly/notesprosetup before purchasing Notes Pro and setup your Lotus Notes account to export data to NotesPro. Follow the instructions to ensure your Lotus Notes account is compatible with NotesPro _before_ you purchase it.
This app has been tested on an iPod Touch (with WiFi) and an iPhone.
The app and agent file was tested on Lotus Notes versions 6, 6.5, 7, 8 and 8.5.

Clumsy...Not Worth 1/4 of the Price
I too "just" wanted to be able to interact w my office email. Previous reviews seemed to indicate this app did that well. I do not think so. The only improvement NP offers over LN's direct internet interface is the "reply" feature. However the points earned for that are taken away for not having folder access. That is very important to me. As it stands now this was a waste of the unusually hi cost as I would rather read my emails - current and in folders - over Lotus' Domino server and use my personal email account to send replies. Too bad.
UPDATE: Although I ran the whole set-up "test" and passed this app keeps failing. I've re-installed but the same thing keeps happening. And - yes - there was no support, just snide remarks and denial of any responsibility. Sad to say this app has caused me to swear off any and every app that charges a fee since there is no trial period or refund/ recourse. Apple should spend more energy on customer satisfaction and less on preventing developers from providing i-phone compatible critical apps like Flash!
do not buy this. Like others, since the update, email does not work at all. Before the upgrade, my work colleagues and I could all get our work email on our iphone, but now, none of us can, and we have all tried to trouble shoot--reinstalling, checking the help section of the website. Notice that the developer has not even posted anything on his website in many months and he just tells people to "check your settings and reinstall" when they say they can't get email anymore. Since I can't quite convince a large institution to stop using Lotus Notes, I am therefor stuck with no work email on my device. Thanks for nothing. If there were a way to give "0" stars, that would be my true rating.
Be very aware of this app. It may not work for everyone!!!
I followed their instructions to the point. Setup Agent on Notes Server, configured the latest version 1.3.1 on the iPhone. but no mail, calendar or any other information was ever retrieved. It may work for some very specific Notes installations, but certainly be prepared to just WASTE your money.
As far as i'm concerned, this is a gamble, since no one will give you money back.
Don't believe the vendor, when he says you can verify your settings before you buy!! I did that and according to the vendors instructions, it verified my settings. but after I purchased, boom, nothing. So watch out.
