Most mobile devices offer excellent Email / Calendar / Contact application as a native app.  These are good tools but can’t offer some of the additional functionality such as shared calendars or “conversation” email grouping, etc.

While it isn’t always needed to get a new app to perform some of these additional functions, it may be valuable in this case.
