Divide on Android for ISC Email

Divide is an alternative Exchange ActiveSync client for Android that runs as a somewhat customized, secure implementation of the stock Android Exchange ActiveSync stack. Since much of this client is ported directly from the Android codebase, Divide provides a reliable email, contact, and calendaring experience for Android users, even those using devices with UI overlays. Additionally, this client is secured within an AES-256 encrypted container that prevents the data contained therein from being accessed by other applications, or malicious users if the device is lost or stolen. More information is available on Enterproid's website, as well as on ISC's Divide product page. Divide is the supported and recommended client for non-Nexus Android devices.

Please note that users going through Divide setup the first time will have to enter additional server and account information. This information is synced to Enterproid and will not be necessary on subsequent installations of the Divide application.
