iOS App Shout-out: Contacts Sync for Google Gmail
Contacts Sync for Google Gmail is one of my favorite iOS apps. It sits in the background, silently doing one job, and it does it well.
I stumbled upon it when looking for an existing solution to my contacts sync problem. My “single source of truth” for contact info is my iPhone’s Contacts app. Relationships are something I really value, so I like to keep an up-to-date number and email for folks.
I use email more than the average person, and manually typing an email address into the gmail “to” field was getting old. It would be cool if I could type someone’s name and their email just auto-populated.
Well, with this app, I can do just that. I have it setup to auto-sync once a day.
I bought lifetime access in 2016 for $2.99. Some of the best 3 bucks I’ve ever spent. At the time of this writing, lifetime access costs $8.99, which is still totally worth it.
