    So what do you guys think is the best solution for syncing google calendar on the iPhone? Syncing with push only gives me one calendar. Using a calDAV account works, but that's another account the phone has to push.

    Is anyone using a third party app like Calengoo ($7!)?

    If the only thing you want is to be able to sync multi calendars with push notification, just open up your safari browser and go to:

    m.google.com/sync

    sign in and follow instructions.

    I have 3 or 4 calendars sync'd and it does push/cloud.

    Same here.. You dont have to pay anything... Just configure it with Exchange Sync and hit this URL to select calendars you want... :D

    Great thread. I just set this up and it works really well. Now events I schedule on google calendars shows up on my iphone and my ical.

    The only downside is that I can't schedule events on ical to automatically show up on google calendars or my iphone.

    You can. Just go to iCal > Preferences > Accounts and create an account that links with your Google account. You can set the sync interval and change various settings. Hope this helps!

    I made the comment with the hope that I was missing something. I switched from subscriptions to your suggestion. Works even better now! Thanks!
