    I want to ask if it is possible to sync the calendar app with google calendar

    Meaning when I create an event with the calendar app in my iphone, I want it to show up instantaneously in google calendar just like it does with icloud

    Yes, and it's easy!

    Settings/Mail, Contacts, Calendars/Accounts/Add Account.../Exchange Account/

    You can google some specific server directions, but it really is simple.

    From then on, all your Mail, Contacts, and Calendars will sync instantly OTA with Google PUSH support.

    It works well!

    I did this until I grew tired of Google's Privacy policies, then abandoned Google altogether. If you're okay with Google's Policies, then you should enjoy the service.

    Good luck!

    and if you have multiple calendars on google, they way to get them onto your iphone is to go to in Safari on your iphone and log into your google account. You'll then be able to choose which calendars you can sync with that device.

    I noticed after updating my ipad to ios6 i had to go and re-do this, very odd..

    You can then set the appropriate google calendar as the default for creating new entries.

    The answer is yes. Both calendars sync to the other one. Both directions.
    However, I've had best results setting Google up as a Gmail account as opposed to an Exchange account
    You then get the option to switch on or off, Calendars, email and contacts individually
