    Google Mobile - Sync

    Beta of course. Looks pretty cool if you don't already have an exchange account setup. Still no push email, just cal and contacts.

    If I didn't already have an exchange account via work, I would set this up in a heart beat.

    Nuevasync already does this.

    This is native via Google. From other users experiences so far, it seems to work better than Nuevasync.

    And now google does it directly so Nuevasync isn't really needed


    Still no push gmail email, although I'm kind of glad you don't need to setup the full sync to get push gmail. I use exchange for my work email and keep all my contacts synced this way as well. So if the only way to get gmail push email was to setup this I would be left in the cold.

    I wonder what will happen to Nuevasync now? I'm going to stay with them for now, at least until Google can sync more than 5 calendars.

    I would imagine that this is the beginning of the end for them.

    Yes I am jailbroken and no I haven't heard of this app. Do you have any ideas? I tried searching 'exchange' and didn't see anything that would match this.

    I tried the Google sync and my holiday calendars didn't show up. What do I need to do to see them. With Nuevasync I had a "Calendars" button in the top left. Not so with the Google sync.

    You need to go to m.google.com/sync from your phone. From there you can select the calenders that you would like to sync.

    For those who are interested, here is a link to Nuevasync's response. It seems that they picked google to test out their sync software, they've got other plans for it...

    I converted meaning I gave up Exchange and switched it to IMAP for work. My Gmail contacts & calendar are more important. Since I only communicate with a handful of people on a daily basis at work, they're in my Gmail contacts. I use Google Calendar Sync to keep my Outlook calendar up-to-date with Gmail and vice-versa.

    Gmail = IMAP
    Work = IMAP
    Gmail Calendar & Contacts = iPhone Exchange client.

    Works well.

    There isn't an app that lets you run multiple exchange instances, but rather NemusSync will sync your google calendars, freeing up your 1 exchange instance for another account.

    This is how I was syncing until I started using a program called SyncMyCal on my desktop. Since I have split my work Exchange account into 4 calendars, it was easier to only have those 4 show up versus syncing with Google on my iPhone duplicating all of my appointments.

    Since syncing my calendar with google, all days on my iphone comes up as busy (ie. all days in month view has the black dot indicating a meeting), even if a day has no meeting scheduled. Is this a bug, feauture, common problem?
