Nuevasync already does this.
And now google does it directly so Nuevasync isn't really needed :D


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.

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

Hey Jamesus, are you jailbroken? if you are, I heard there is an app on Cydia that allows multiple Exchange accounts simultainiously (sp?)

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.
