Sync Your Google Calendar And Contact With iPhone

14 02 2009

google_syncAre you a regular user of Gmail and Google Calendar? I love both products from Google. I use them daily to keep in touch with my friends and keep track with my schedule. But I always complain Google lacks a sync feature to sync all my contact or calendar event from iPhone to my Google account.

Finally, Google released its own Sync solution for synchronize contacts and calendar event for iPhone and other mobile phones.

For iPhone and Windows Mobile devices, Google Sync allows you to get your Gmail Contacts and Google Calendar events to your phone. Once you set up Sync on your phone, it will automatically begin synchronizing your address book and calendar in the background, over-the-air, so you can attend to other tasks. Sync uses push technology so any changes or additions to your calendar or contacts are reflected on your device in minutes. The connection is always on so you don’t have to manually sync your phone after Sync has been set up. This means that when your colleague changes the time of the TPS report cover sheets meeting, you’ll know about it right away.

All contact and calendar changes are pushed to your iPhone. Any change you made in your Google account, it’ll directly reflect on your iPhone. Probably, sooner or later, Google will support Push email.

Google Sync is now in beta but it’s quite stable from my test. I’ll post up a guide on how you can use Google Sync very soon. But if you can’t wait for it, just check out Google Sync website to try it out yourself.

It’s very straightforward to setup Google Sync on your iPhone. However, make sure you’ve backup all your contacts and calendar data before you setup Google Sync as it may erase the existing contacts and calendar event.
