So is there any rational explanation as to why the #$%* iPad/iTunes won't synchronize Outlook's Tasks with iPad's Reminders? It would seem as one of the most natural things in the universe.


I mean, is there any real/technical reason for this lack of functionality, or is it simply about turf wars?


Is there any quick and efficient workaround for this?


(I did once try some "third party app" (they said it would work with Tasks, but I wasn't able to find them anywhere) which only introduced more mess into the Calendar...)

Rational? Not sure. :) Tasks should sync via iCloud - they are reminders on the device. If you are using Hotmail as the go between, the problem is with Outlook <==>Hotmail sync. At the time they developed the Hotmail connector, Hotmail didn't have tasks. Until Winphone 7 and lack of desktop sync, Hotmail tasks had a very low uptake rate - like 1%. They decided to support EAS in Outlook 2013 and it supports tasks natively.... but i do not expect changes to the Hotmail connector and i don't know if they will release an EAS connector.

So those of us who don't want to use the (i)cloud for these kinds of things, are pretty much out of usable options? :(

Pretty much, if iTunes doesn't support syncing them, yeah you are out of options. It's controlled by the sync software, not Outlook.

I suppose I won't have such problems once I "graduate" to either Surface or Android...? ;)

It depends on your email account... but surface will definitely do better than droid. Droid is likely to be the worst - some, if not all, droids, do not have task apps. not sure if the sync software droids use supports tasks.
