App to sync shared Exchange 2007 Calendar
I'm an IT Admin tasked with finding a means by which to sync a shared calendar in MS Exchange with an iPhone. By default, iOS will sync a user account's Outlook calendar with their iPhone through the Mail program native to the iPhone. However, any shared office calendars are not shared and thus rendered useless when out of the office. I see multiple 3rd party apps to handle email sync with iOS devices and Exchange but I'm hoping somebody out there has information on an app that will allow me to sync multiple calendars to an iOS device (iPhone) - the default calendar associated with the user account in Exchange 2007 and any additional shared calendars. Any help you can provide is appreciated. Thanks.

Couldn't you set up a new mail account on the phone to connect to the exchange server? Once there, you could sync only the calendar.
I've also used a program that syncs my own Outlook calendar with my Gmail calendar, which is pulled in OTA via the above method. That might work too.

I appreciate the feedback, and CalenGoo looks great -- except none of my users are using Gmail accounts! My problem is related specifically to Exchange 2007. From within Exchange, Public calendars can be created and share with users in my Active Directory databse (all my office user accounts). From within Outlook, these users can see their default user calendars in Exchange as well as any calendars that have been shared for their use. When setting up the iPhones to synch with Exchange, only the default user account is available to be seen. I'm looking for something specific to Exchange that will allow for the viewing/synching of multiple calendars - their default user calendar as well as any public/shared calendars. Anymore ideas on how I might accomplish this? I know of some 3rd party products for Exchange but they're cost prohibitive. There used to be an app calle "iExchange Calendar" in the AppStore that would allow for this type of synchronization, but I have no idea when or why it was pulled from the AppStore.
