••• SYNCS GROUPS! ••• SYNCS AUTOMATICALLY! ••• #1 IN DOWNLOADS & REVIEWS FOR 8+ YEARS! With ”Contacts Sync for Google Gmail,” you can quickly & easily sync your Google & Mac contacts so that you can have access to your contacts wherever you go. This app distinguishes itself with its reliability, ease of use, speed, and with a true "2-way sync" that merges changes made to both your Gmail & Mac contacts. This is the #1 app for syncing Google contacts with Mac both in terms of downloads & reviews. Also of significance, this app syncs contact groups with Google. For instance, you may have organized your Google contacts into groups such as "friends," "family," and "coworkers." After syncing, your Mac groups will match your Google groups. With the customizability that this app provides, it can be used in a number of creative ways. For example, you can backup your Mac contacts to Google, you can sync iCloud or Exchange contacts with Google, or you can perform syncs in one direction only (such as Google to Mac).

  • does everything I want

    It works like it says it does. happy with that. wish that they had a true 64-bit version. That is prohibiting me from upgrading to the newer verion of OS for my macbook. ITY will not have a 32-bit emulator built in. No more support for 32-bit apps.
  • Licensing Issues

    By Josh_KY
    First, I'll say that the application itself works wonderfully for the most part. The only quirk that you must get used to is the fact that it doesn't show as an "application" in the dock, such as other applications would. It only shows in the top status bar, along with other icons near to the clock. Now, on to my problem related to the licensing. I will revise/remove this rating if the developer fixes this problem. But just recently, the app began to request my purchase of an additional unlock on the already full-version purchased application. Unless I give in to the demands, it will only synchronize 40 of my contacts. I have attempted to contact the developer for support on this, but I wanted to leave this review for anyone else who may be in the same boat. It is somewhat confusing because there is another application, Synctastic, by the same developer. This app appears in the "related" list and may lead one to believe that they didn't really purchase the full-version. And the developers response that the licensing issue is fixed with 7.1.2 is not correct. I'll be forced to pay for it again if I want to use it.
  • Great app, not great update

    Latest update randomly pops up sync status windows throughout the day.
  • Great contact synch app

    By Stone Waters
    I use android phones and MAC for contacts. This is the only app I have ever found that works. It is well designed with a very user-friendly interface that makes it easy to understand what is happening. I urge you to use this application. It is great.

  • solid solution

    By TheMattyMiller
    This was a constant painpoint in my business contacts (and personal) workflow. Always different info in my GSuite contacts, Mac Contacts. I just ignored this issue for years. Then one day I did a search, found this app, now its been over a year I've been using it and I'm happy. I'm giving 5 stars because it works, its solid, and I haven't had any issues.
  • The Best App Of Its Kind

    By Quiberon Bay
    I go way back with this stuff, to the days of Plaxo and their ilk. This app runs as smooth as silk, doing what it says it's going to do, at a super reasonable price. As long as Apple and Google refuse to play nice together, I'm glad Contacts Sync is around.
  • This is NOT a free app!

    By LLawless229
    This is NOT a free app! They will ask for you to pay for it right after downloading it in order to sync more than 40 contacts. It works. It is simple. I'm a bit miffed that it was advertised on the app store to be a supposedly "free" app, then you download it, and "oh, wait! Pay us money or no more than 40 contacts for you!" Since everyone these days has more than 40 contacts, this basically made the app unuseable unless I paid. I ended up buying it after searching the internet because it was well reviewed. I wish they could have just been honest from the get go and labelled the app as $5. I know app developers work hard and need to make a living. $5 is reasonable and this app has great reviews. I would have bought it anyway, then reviewed it well. But now I feel like they tried to trick me with false advertising. Even though the app works, that leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. Stop labeling this app as free when it's not, please.
  • One of the most necessary and best apps I have!

    By James in Montana
    I wrote this review quite a while back: "I use this app all the time to keep my Google contacts in sync on my Mac. It works very well, and I’m extremely happy with it. Furthermore, if I ever have a question or need assistance the developer is responsive and thorough.” And today I’m just following up to reiterate how great this app is. It’s helped me keep all of my contacts organized now for quite a few years. I’m still a happy customer and certainly plan on using this one for the foreseeable future. Way to go Playa Apps!!
  • Works as Advertised

    By puritan
    Been using this app for years. Figured it was finally time to tell everyone that your $5.00 will go a long way. This is a no brainer for anyone who has to dip their toes in the Google echosystem and can't make everything work with iCloud contacts for whatever reason. Great job developers. Keep up the good work!
