Contacts Sync for Google Gmail with Auto Sync

By Playa Apps

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.



With ”Contacts Sync for Google Gmail,” you can quickly & easily sync your Gmail & iPhone contacts so that you can have access to your contacts wherever you go. This app distinguishes itself with its reliability, ease of use, speed, and with a true "2-way sync" that merges changes made to both your Gmail & iPhone contacts. This is the #1 app for syncing Gmail contacts with iPhone/iPad/iPod both in terms of downloads & reviews.

Also of significance, this app syncs contact groups with Google. For instance, you may have organized your Gmail contacts into groups such as "friends," "family," and "coworkers." After syncing, your iPhone 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 iPhone contacts to Gmail, you can sync iCloud or Exchange contacts with Gmail, or you can perform syncs in one direction only (such as Gmail to iPhone).

• Choose from one of the following sync types: 2-way sync, Gmail contacts -> iPhone, iPhone contacts -> Gmail, & Manual Sync
• Choose a 2-way sync to combine changes you’ve made to your contacts in both iPhone & Gmail
• Choose a 1-way sync to transfer changes in one direction only
• Choose a manual sync to sync selected contacts only

• Sync specific contacts only by using filters
• Apply the group filter to sync contacts that belong to the specified groups only
• Apply the new contact filter to ignore contacts without an email address or phone number
• Various other filters available

• Syncs all fields including names, phonetic names, nicknames, email addresses, phone numbers, postal addresses, company names, job titles, departments, birthdays, anniversaries, events, notes, web page addresses, relationships, instant messaging accounts, & social profiles
• Syncs contact photos
• Syncs custom labels & custom fields

• Optionally add synced contacts to a specified group such as “Modified by Contacts Sync”

• During the initial sync, the contents of matching Gmail & iPhone contacts will be merged

• Review each change before the sync actually begins
• Easily override the suggested changes

• Automatically syncs contacts in the background 24/7

• Choose which iPhone contact account you want to sync with Google whether it's an ordinary iPhone address book, iCloud, Exchange, Outlook, Yahoo, or even Facebook

• Prevents duplicates by automatically matching your Gmail & iPhone contacts when syncing
• Warns you of potential duplicates in Gmail before they’re synced to your iPhone

• Monitor the results of the current sync, and review the results of the last 100 synchronizations

• "Tried another app that claims it does same thing only to be disappointed. Downloaded this app & it worked 1st time!"
• "Keeping both Google contacts and iPhone contacts updated has never been this easy. You can make changes on either side and then sync both by simply clicking the 2-way sync button. Great job!"
• “This app is one of the best ones you will never find in the marketplace. It is fast, reliable, and fixes your entire contact list across many mediums. MUST GET!”

Customer Reviews


It's sometimes fun to write bad reviews when apps ruin themselves trying to do more things, badly. Not the case here: Contacts Sync does one thing really really well. I'm writing this now, tired and traveling, and wanting to write some emails on the normal gmail desktop web portal, but wanting the new people I've met and put in my iphone to show up. I remember how stressful that used to be. Did I enter it in two places? Which one is current? Etc. Now I just run this app and in 15 seconds my 6000 contacts are back in sync from iCloud to Gmail. And my heart is grateful, honestly, to this developer for doing what so few tech things do anymore: make life SIMPLER instead of more complicated. Thank you!

Great app! Does what it claims

I will say that this app isn't free, but it's not expensive either. Pay 2.99 and get unlimited syncs you'll be set with that. If you have your contacts saved in many different groups you can sync them in one google account, or iCloud. Very easy to use lots of room to play around with it. Customization and all with your contacts is done nicely too. Backs up the pics of your contact. To sum it down this app does a lot. It's great if you are looking to organize your contact list, or trying to switch phones. I highly recommend getting it: the free feature is very limited so it's best to simply pay the 2.99 and use the app to its potential! :)

awsome app - highly recommended

Absolutely awsome app!
After trying a few other apps for syncing my Google contacts, and also messing around with exchange, this app really stands out as the best.
It is simple to use, synchronized everything flawlessly including groups, and it is lightning fast (my contacts list has several hundred items, and it took seconds to process everything). It also provides good flexibility in deciding what to copy and what to merge (when you need this flexibility), gives you a report exactly what records it intends to sync and how, and allows you to change your mind just before you give the final OK to sync. I can't think of anything that can be improved in this app.
None of the other "sync" apps that I tried were both fast and able to handle groups accurately.
I installed it both on my ipad running ios6 and iphone 4 running ios5 and both worked perfectly.
And it still works flawlessly on ios8!
Still using it on ios 9 and so far it always works flawlessly.
