    Hi. Currently I'm using a Nexus 5 as phone, but I also have an iPad and a Mac. This "hybrid" setup is problematic when it comes to sync data between all the devices, since iCloud is obviously not supported by Android and some Google services are not fully supported by Apple.

    The only things I need to sync at the moment are notes and reminders. I have already partially resolved with notes, because iOS and OS X luckily support syncing notes with my Gmail account. However it is not the same for reminders.

    I don't mind using a third party app on Android, while I'd prefer to use the native apps on iOS and OS X. I have already tried some Android apps which should be able to sync with iCloud, but often they don't work properly.

    Do you have any ideas about how to solve this? Thank you.

    No native or real good solution for this. As you indicate, there are some apps in the Google Play Store that may work to sync individual components of iCloud with Android phones, thus keeping them in sync(ish) with iOS devices and Macs. I bet they're flaky and unreliable.

    I recommend you pick an ecosystem and just stick with it.
