"Contacts Sync For Google Gmail" allows you to quickly & easily sync your Gmail & Mac contacts so you can have access to your contacts wherever you go. This app stands out 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 & 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." With this app, you can sync your Gmail contacts to your Mac and they'll appear in the same groups.
With the customizability that this app provides, it can be used in a number of creative ways that you might not have imagined. To start with, you can perform syncs in any direction you like including 2-way syncs and 1-way syncs from Gmail to Mac and vice versa.

What's New in Version 4.0.2
* “My Contacts” group is synced
* Other minor improvements
Very nicely done - only one frustration (kind of a big one)
Overall, this is really nicely done software. It does it’s job thoroughly, and does it well. My one frustration is that my initial sync (after a year or two of not sync’ing) I had a few hundred contacts that needed to be reviewed during the sync process. Contact Sync provides a nice means of doing this - a list with the suggested action, an easy way to review both entries, and the ability to override the action. My biggest frustration is that each time I would delete a contact (or change it’s suggested sync direction), it would scroll back up to the top. So a couple hundred times, I had to scroll back to where I left off.
If this were implemented in more of a sequential order, perhaps auto-loading the review windows for each contact (Mac & Gmail), it would make this process MUCH easier and faster.
Other than that - well worth the $3.99!
Flexible and works
It works perfectly for me on both 10.6.9 and 10.8.5 one way Gmail -> Mac. Have not tried other modes yet. E-mail support was instantaneous, a great developer. Seems that Google's own dup searching is not complete. This app actually revealed a number of dups on Google which Google could not detect; so I was able to delete those on Google to my satisfaction. So, it may be worth it even if you use it only to find these strange Google duplicates!
Works Great and Very Responsive With Questions
I have been using this app for over a year and it realy works great. I maintain all my contacts in Gmail online and they all sync perfectly with my mac. My mac then syncs with iCoud which in turn keeps my iPhone up to date. Even the Groups sync. Best of all, if you have a question, simply send an email and you will get a timely response.
