    Hey everyone,

    Like most people on this forum, I use Gmail and own a few Apple products. For work, using the Mail app is not convenient, so I'm using the Gmail web client.

    I'd like to get my Google contacts (and maybe calendars too) sync'd with what I have in iCloud. I know I can set up both syncing methods on a device, but since I have several, which do I use? Do I do it on all of them? What's the best way to go about establishing a continuously updating sync process between iCloud and Google?

    My ideal scenario would be: If I add contact to iCloud; it shows up in Google within a few minutes. Alternatively, if I add a contact to Google, I'd like it to show up in iCloud within a few minutes as well.

    Thanks!

    If you have a Mac, in the Mac app store, search for an app named soemthing like Google for Contacts Sync...it'll sync Google conctacts with iCloud - either continuous sync, or one way works.
