Sync Google contacts with Address Book and multiple Macs.

Overview

GSync... Sync Google contacts with Mac OS X (10.5) Address Book and multiple Macs.

Why do you need this app?

Mac OS X Address book does not sync with Google Contacts. It has basic syncing only if you have iPhone. Even with iPhone you need to sync the addressbook with iphone to have google contacts also synced. Multiple macs cannot be synced this way. This application solves the problem.

Syncing of other fields such as birthdays, is not supported on google contacts. This application uses a custom address field (which you can see on google contacts). Though this looks odd, it solves the purpose.

What's new in GSync

Version 1.01: Fixed an issue where if there is no lastname name on Google contacts, then the application would halt.

Frankly, I can't say much about Gsync except that it fails on my computer to properly sync with GCal's address book. It's fairly useless to be because it doesn't work. That said, its a good idea and I hope the developer works to improve it so that it in fact works.

I had several issues with this application that other reviewers described: Received "FAILED" message, although contacts were still available. Deleted all my groups, deleted the contacts in my chat list. Seems to have populated my "most contacted" list with randomly selected individuals. I imagine this is a consequence of using an idiotic "delete first" paradigm. Also, the "fix" for dealing with contacts without a last name was apparently to append a dash as the last name. So now I have several hundred contacts with "-" for a last name; very annoying. It seems to me that this application is awful, and should be scrapped our completely reworked.

I got the big red "FAILED" message but it got the job done as my contacts still appear to have synced.

I got the big red "FAILED" message, even though it worked fine.

I did a "replace contacts in Google with Address Book". It faithfully erased my contact from google, then I got a great big red FAILED message when it tried to upload them. However, my contacts are now all there. But it emptied the groups i had set up in gmail, so that is annoying - but I guess i should have expected that. Oh well - I guess it is back to "A to G"

Tried today the new version of GSync. It started deleting about 60 items, then seemed to transfer items from my Addressbook to my Gmail account and stopped with a FAILED message. My Addressbook has about 365 items, my Gmail account finnaly showed only 66 addresses. Could be that I lost Gmail addresses - and those are not in my TimeMachine backup ...

Only if you have an iPhone/iTouch synced with iTunes, unless this has changed recently (a quick check in Address Book's preferences still only gives me MobileMe, Exchange or Yahoo as syncing options).

Syncing with Google address book is built in to 10.5's address book. What is the point of this app?

Great idea! But also on my MacBook with Leopard GSync doesn't work properly. It starts and reports rather quickly that 60 addresses has to be additioned to my Adressbook, but after that nothing seems to be done anymore. After more then 10 minutes I had to stop the program. Hope that there will be a version that works properly.
