Google SyncOkay, so I’m not exactly sure how new this function is, but I just noticed in the top right corner of my Google Calendar page that you can now sync your Google Calendar with your iPhone. I have been wanting this feature for a long time. If your an avid user of Google Calendars and you have an iPhone you probably already know how cumbersome it is to sync the calendars without this new function. You originally had to create a private url link for each calendar in Google Calendars that iCal uses to update it’s calendars. Then you had the extra step of having to hook up you iPhone to your computer via usb and sync. As you could imagine this is quite a time consuming ordeal. Google Sync also support Symbian based phones, Blackberry, and Windows Mobile phones. With it’s push technology you never have to physically connect your phone to a computer to sync. It’s all done in the background wirelessly. Google sync also synchronizes you Google Contacts.
