    I use a birthday app to add the dates to my iphone contacts and so far works good. I use nuevasync right now to get google synced up in contacts.
    but i notice that google contacts dont have a birthday field which sucks.
    So my address book at home doesnt pick up the dates when it syncs to google contacts.
    any advice?
    Mind you im using exchange so i cant just sync my contacts directly to my mac at the moment using nuevasync.

    The Birthday field does not sync between the Apple Address Book and Google Contacts. If I create a new contact with a birthday or add a birthday to an exisiting contact in the Address Book, the birthday field does not sync to Google. Also, vice versa, if I add/create it in Google Contacts, it does not sync to the Address Book.

    I wanted to use both Google Contacts and Calendar as my master and sync my iPad, iTouch and iMac Address Book and Calendar to Google.

    Is there a work-a-round or fix for this issue yet?
