With ”Contacts Sync for Google Gmail,” you can quickly & easily sync your Gmail & iPhone contacts, giving you access to your contacts from anywhere. 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 Google and iPhone contacts 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 many customization options, this app can be used in a number of ways. Of course, the app can be used to make your iPhone and Google contacts match each other, which also has the side effect of creating a backup. You can perform syncs in any direction including 1-way syncs and 2-way syncs. Also, you can sync any one of your contact accounts with Google, including your corporate Exchange contacts, iCloud, Yahoo,, or any CardDAV account.

Awesomeness app!! and I have 2 productive requests please

Easy to use and saves lots of time. I have all my contacts in my multiple Google email accounts specially the email addresses with their names to compose emails easily and look professional. I have an important request. I have multiple Google email accounts and I’d like to set up all of them on your app to have all new contacts synced automatically at once in the background and in the Standard/Auto modes without manually signing out from an account and then signing in another. Also in the event of duplicates, would you please add a tab to show possible duplicated contacts split between different Google email accounts separately with the ability to edit the merges or create separate contacts when needed? Thx a lot…

Deleted My Contacts

I downloaded this app thinking that I would be able to sync my contacts onto Google Contacts. I was able to sync my contacts onto the app but it wouldn’t sync them to Google Contacts on the Google website. Since that didn’t work I didn’t want my contacts on the app anymore so I decided to delete all the contacts from the app. However whenever I went to my phone to look for some contacts I couldn’t find them. I went back to the app and saw that whenever I would delete the contact on the app it would delete it the contact on my phone. I would think that the app wouldn’t automatically set it to be that way considering I would maybe want to keep the contacts on my phone but not the app. All in all I was very disappointed thankfully I put some of those contacts onto the Google Contacts from Google. I will not use this app again.

Please Sync Formats of Contacts

Please respect the formats of both Google Contacts and Apple iOS-based Contacts. I do not appreciate having to go into my Apple iOS Contacts and have to clean up the mess that Google Contacts Sync makes from imposing Google’s changes to last name and Company, for example. I debate each time I use Google Sync whether it would just be easier for me to change the info I wanted updated, changed or added in both places manually. I flip a coin and am usually happier with manually updating. But, then Google updates the app and I try again. Probably getting to the end of that approach and will just manually make changes in both places and Alize that Google and Apple are unwilling to put down their swords in favor of pleasing their customers. Same kind of warring formats for calendars, too. Bummer.
