Contacts Sync for Google Gmail7.2.2

01 July 2020

Allows you to sync your Gmail and Mac contacts.

Overview

Contacts Sync for Google Gmail allows you to quickly and easily sync your Gmail and Mac contacts so you can have access to your contacts wherever you go. This app stands out from the competition with its reliability, ease of use, speed, and with a true "2-way sync" that allows you to merge changes you've made to your Gmail and Mac contacts.

Also of significance, this app syncs contact groups with Google. For instance, you may have your Gmail contacts organized into groups such as "friends," "family," and "coworkers." After syncing, your Mac groups will match your Gmail groups.

With the customizability that this app provides, it can be used in a number of creative ways. For example, you can backup your Mac contacts to Gmail, you can sync iCloud contacts with Gmail, or you can perform syncs in one direction only (such as Gmail to Mac).

While I am a big fan of Gmail, I only like Gmail itself, not Gmail contacts or calendar. I prefer to use Apple Contacts and Calendar, synching them with my iOS devices. The problem is that occasionally I need to use the Gmail web app and the only way I could ever keep my contacts in sync there was to keep exporting them from Apple Contacts and importing to Gmail, which was truly a huge pain. But Contacts Sync for Google Mail completely eliminates this problem. It is one of those rare apps that does absolutely everything the developer says it will do. Many users want to maintain their contacts in Gmail and sync to their iOS devices…this does it. Other users, me included, want to have only iCloud contacts on my Mac and sync them to my iOS devices, yet also sync these contacts (one-way) to Gmail. The app does this, also. In fact, regarding your iCloud contacts and Gmail contacts, there is nothing this app won’t do, though you’ll likely need the “Unlimited Syncs” and “Automatic Contact Syncing” in-app upgrades (for me, absolutely necessary), and well worth the small in-app purchase prices. I have well over 500 iCloud contacts on my Mac synching to my iOS devices, along with about 20 groups. To test this app when I first installed it, I manually removed all contacts and groups from Gmail contacts and did a one-way sync from my iPhone to Gmail. About 15 seconds later “everything” in Gmail mirrored my iPhone contacts and groups. Lastly, prior to purchasing I had a couple of questions and the developer responded to both in less than 24 hours. Yet another rarity today’s software support climate.

Am I missing something? All my contacts are stored in Gmail and synced with my Contacts. It's by default in OS X (Mavericks anyway) via System Preferences -> Internet Accounts -> Google.

Looks like this is no longer a free app, $3.99 from App Store. I do not see download info on this page. Thanks.

Really great program. The only (minor) hitch was signing in (to google) the first time. I use a password manager and not having a copy/paste feature was a hassle.

3.77 is the current version as of today – it works! Allows me to have complete control of the process of automatically or manually syncing and merging between iCloud contacts and GMail contacts. No problems at all. Documentation is sparse, but exploring the options and trying them out is an easy way to figure everything out.

I don't think that you can use iCloud sync for AddressBook and still sync with Google Contacts at the same time. I've tried and it is either one or the other. I would pay for something that would do BOTH.
