••• SYNCS GROUPS! ••• SYNCS AUTOMATICALLY! ••• #1 IN DOWNLOADS & REVIEWS FOR 5+ YEARS! With ”Contacts Sync for Google Gmail,” you can quickly & easily sync your Gmail & Mac 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 & Mac contacts. This is the #1 app for syncing Gmail contacts with Mac 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 Mac 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 Mac 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 Mac).

  • Not Great

    By Shaneaf
    Contacts from iCloud all dumped into “Other” contacts folder within gmail instead of main contacts folder. Also, most contact photos from iCloud did not transfer to gmail.
  • Totally useless app

    By hondaguy65
    Useless to me. It won’t allow me to purchase needed upgrade to allow syncing of all my cnoacts. When purchase screen appears and I click on purchase upgrade nothing happens. Removed from computer.
  • Essential Tool if you use GMail

    By Captain Buzz #4
    There really is no better way than this tool to keep your Google Contacts and Apple iCloud Conacts syncronized. You get the best of both systems with information combined (like updated pictures, Google+ info). It keeps getting better and better too. Now at version 7 and works like a charm.
  • Excellent app! Life saving!

    By great app and cust support
    This is an excellent app, and worthy of the life saving label. I have over 3800 contacts with multiple entries and decide to move away from iCloud. I bought this app after doing my research and looking at several competing apps. I cannot say enouht about the tech support above and beyond the call of duty. I sync 6 devices that include 2 MacBook Pros, iPhone, iPad, iMac and a Google Pixelbook. Tech support was unfailingly patient with my repeated requests and knew the questions to ask. Cannot recommend it enough.
  • Where has this app been all my life??? Perfectd for iPhones!!

    By davidatswans2
    I’ve now been using this app for almost two months. If you use an email app tied to Google but keep your contacts in Apple’s Contacts app, it is essential for them to sync, since new or revised emails addresses that you load into your Apple Contacts are fetched by your iPhone from Gmail, not from the Apple Contacts. This app makes this constant self-syncing a piece of cake. Be sure to backup your Contacts before using this in case you screw up (I did backup but didn’t screw up), but you’ll be very pleased with the results. It syncs everything in your Apple Contacts including your notes, addresses, phone numbers, emails, etc. I couldn’t be happier!!
  • Very good on day 1

    By bigjimt
    I use mac / iphone but use Google Calendar on all devices. I wanted to invite people to events from Google Cal but my Gmail contacts were always outdated. I thought google / icloud should sync my contacts for free , but it never wroked right. So I paid a few bucks and now it works.
  • Great Application

    I use this app for syncing my iPhone to Google and on my Macbook to sync from Google to my Mac. Works like a charm and keeps everything in perfect sync.
  • Solid sync product

    By kmurlless
    I’ve relied on Contacts Sync for several years now. It’s reliable and can be customized to use in the fashion that suits you. Documentation is good. You can trust this app with your data.
  • works great

    By Darby19D
    I’ve been using this for about a year now and it’s been rock solid. My contacts are kept in sync. There are occasional duplicates, but after cleaning them up, those duplicates don’t reoccur. Cleaning up updates and duplicates are easy to manage.
