TouchDown is an app for an Android device that syncs Email, Calendar, Contacts, Tasks, and Notes with a Microsoft Exchange server.  Outlook can also sync with the Exchange server, allowing Exchange to be the conduit for syncing between Outlook and the Android device.  Touchdown can easily sync between Microsoft's Exchange 365 adding the ability to sync Tasks and Notes with the Android, which the built-in Android Exchange sync does not perform.

TouchDown is now a Symantec product and they are rolling it into their Mobility Suite. However, the TouchDown app is still available as a standalone product on the Google Play store.
