I originally had a couple issues because I was using Exchange with ActiveSync but it seems that they fixed it with version 2.0.
I've been using it since and it works perfect for me now

Purchased a few weeks ago and love it, works perfectly. I also love the little extras, for example it creates a backup that you can use at a later time if you ever lose your contacts. I stopped using Nuevasync because of this app.

Fantastic! I have my wife's iPod Touch *but* I do not own a Mac (she does) since I earn my living writing Windows apps (well, it pays the bills :) ). Now if they could sprinkle their magic potent on the Calendar, I would be a happy camper...well, a happier camper!

Sadly, Apple does not allow 3rd party manipulation of the Calendar, or else these guys would be all over it!

What's the advantage of Sync In A Blink? I use Funambol app to back-up my contacts to Mobyko's site and if I ever have to get my contacts back on my iPhone, I can download Mobyko's app and sync my iPhone to Mobyko. All of it is completely free. It's all pretty easy to do following the directions on Mobyko's site.

No need for a third party. I only want to keep mu contacts on gmail or my iphone. I dont want to keep them at some 3rd party site. Thats why sync in a blink is great.

but can you use your contacts in any of the Google web apps that way or access them any other way? Like what if your phone dies and you need to call someone?

I tried the google contacts syncing a few months back via google's sync and I remember there were quite a few fields missing from google contacts that existed on the iphone and needless to say it caused me problems. I then tried syncing with my mobileme account and it duped all the contacts on my iphone. so I stopped that as well. Why is this so difficult? Right now, my contacts are only on my iphone and now synced with my home computer outlook :( not my ideal choice but caused the least amount of headaches.
