  • Thank you

    By FlutterbyeLu
    Wow, that was super easy to figure out. Thank you!
  • Removal of sync function

    By AgainTeaseMe
    Pretty sad game of removing sync and providing in a new paid App. Found out when I ran the sync and noticed the updates to groups didn’t happen. What’s to stop them in creating a new app and dropping the sync of groups in this latest app.
  • Does Everything I Need

    By The L Person
    Works great syncing IOS contacts with Google then with Outlook and vice versa.
  • Perfectly simple

    This app is awesome. I’ve been using it for years and it has continued to remain simple and effective. It doesn’t try to do everything, it focuses on one thing and it’s the very best app for that. It synchronizes your contacts with options and it’s well worth the money. Sync iCloud contacts to your Google Contacts, or, sync your Google contacts to your iCloud contacts. KISS - Keep It Simple Stupid Great job Dev!
  • Works great

    By slmande
    No issues
  • Not as i wanted

    By xqubc
    After paying for this app it does not delete duplicate contacts. I have to delete them by self
  • Not working yet

    By Riveralex
    So far this is great disappointment. I know Google and Apple are rivals but the differences in the platforms are a real pain for users. This means that so far my use of this app has run into bug after bug and I really don’t know if I will be able to stick with it long enough to get what I need from it.
  • Awesome

    By Gigirlf
    Awesome advancements in this app
  • Keeps my contacts in sync with little effort.

    By makusick
    Works as described and is a good value.
  • Love it!

    By pumpkinpeog
    Very helpful for syncing contacts.
  • Truly indispensable!

    By Larry.McJ
    I’ve been using Contacts Sync for so many years I don’t remember when I started. But I do remember what a mess it was before Contacts Sync to keep my Apple Contacts in sync with my Gmail account. Not to mention it was impossible to sync and use Google Contacts Groups with Apple Mail. The other very important benefit to using a truly necessary utility is having access to the developer when a problem occurs or you fail to understand something the app is doing…or not doing. This app’s developer is very transparent, and in all these years whenever I had a question he was always there for me. I just realized this weekend how important that was when I had a small issue of forgetting how to do something and emailed him late Friday evening. I expected a reply on Monday, which would have been just fine, but he replied in only a few minutes. How many developers do this? I’m guessing not many. Whenever I get a new iPhone, this is one of the first apps I install…I couldn’t live without it. I sincerely appreciate the developer’s commitment to keeping it updated and providing users with one of the most useful apps in the App Store.
  • Worst service ever

    By sarah at french toast
    I sync all contacts and now I have 4000 contacts I now have a bunch of groups I didn’t have and don’t know what to do it’s going to take me 3 days to resolve this
  • Works like it says!

    By Judywuhu
    Simple, easy, cheap! 👌🏻
  • Contact SYNCH

    By Dunner46
    Sweet & neat app!
  • Large contacts books -two accounts perfect sync

    By Paritosh P
    The application is great at sync of multiple address books. I have over 8,000 contacts and had problems with regular address book updates that were to be updated at phone or vice versa.
  • Great tool

    By parts sales
    I have had this app for years and it has been invaluable.
  • Unnecessary software

    By New Yor City
    I wasted $5 buying this unnecessary software because your Google contacts come in to your iPhone instantly as soon as you add your Google account to your iPhone... no additional software necessary.
  • Not what I would expect for a contact management app

    By WastedMich
    Every update generates another duplicate entry. When I finally tried to use the eliminate duplicate function, over 50% of my contacts were lost and yet the ones that remained had their duplicates with them. Some have pictures, some don’t. Merge function sometimes works but keeps duplicates.
  • Bs app

    By chriz586
    The fact that you have to pay $4 to sync all of your contents is obscene, despite the fact the app isn’t good for anything else. Very dissatisfied being how complicated they make it to do such a simple thing. The app gives you the runaround
  • Google Sync Is Successful!

    By Shushanne
    This app really does synchronize contacts whether it’s between iCloud and/or google. It does both.
  • Fantastic!

    By tnarg321
    Been using this app for a long time and have never had any problems. Highly recommended!
  • PastorPete

    By Pastor Pete 3
    Amazingly accurate and easy to use. Love it.
  • Quick, easy, breezy!

    By Ecky23
    No problem getting my iPhone contacts merged to Google using this app - few presses and done without messing with vcards!
  • Keeps our contacts consistent everywhere

    By User5134
    I have my wife’s contacts doing a two-way synch so that she can add contacts directly on her phone. My phone is one-way from Google and I make any changes directly on Google contacts. This keeps us both happy.
  • Help needs help

    By amecchi
    Too hard and made a mess of things.
  • Good stuff

    By jfitzpat8
    confusing out their. This helps me track myself.
  • Ripoff aimed at the elderly

    By 😫🔫😈mwah ha ha
    You could only sync up to 40 contacts without paying, which is kind of a ripoff considering how easy it is even without this tool. I’d recommend Mcbackup, it’s free, and it works perfectly, simply email your contact list to yourself and you could easily import it to google contacts or iCloud.
  • It simply works

    By gladiboughtit - Saratoga CA
    App delivers it’s promise!!!
  • Super clean does what is says

    By MarcThomas on business
    Super clean does what is says
  • Excellent

    By Salkdkxkdnwbshzjxjd
    Very simple & accurate. Great to keep in sync
  • Too hard to get rid of or consolidate duplicates

    By Untaken 10
    Basic sync function is fine, but very unsophisticated and difficult to deal with duplicates which happen all the time and should be a main function of the product.
  • A godsend

    By colinld
    Years of wondering how to sync all contacts, now over.
  • Great app!

    By Racerdale
    Make it as simple as can to keep my contacts up to date!!
  • It sync 40 ,it would be nice if we HAD A CHOICE TO PICK

    By ronniezee3333
    It picks the First 40 for us Completely ripoff
  • Clash of the Titans

    By dshumaker
    Finally someone has stood up between the two giants Apple and Google and made them talk to each other. My addresses are no longer duplicating or deleting themselves thanks to this app. I can now delete a record from either source and have the other one pick up the change correctly.
  • Works great

    By self-made
    Very quick and easy. Works both ways so you can add to your Google contacts and sync or add to your phone and sync. I have had no issues.
  • Super duper EZ!!

    By superduper EZ
    Love the simplicity
  • Sync too complicated

    By Goog cont and survey
    I took 20 minutes to sync my google contacts
  • Hello

    By rohunter
  • Sync

    By EWH1199
    The two way synch does not seem to update iPhone and my google contacts list
  • Great tool....

    By jaykay1955
    Nothing else to say than that. Does it exactly like the name describes
  • Ok but....

    By Busmechanic123409876
    I bought this app thinking you could use the groups through the gmail app, which you can not. So it’s useless to me
  • Don’t waste your time

    By azchico
    Be prepared to purchase upgraded version to move more than 40 contacts.
  • Confusing

    By jimweb1111
    Hard to auto sync. Wud not allow it. Never had trouble before
  • Simple and effective

    By jemmidland
    I have been using this app for years and I am finally writing a review. It is simple to use and has never failed me. Love it.
  • Another bait and switch app

    By Injustice is the right word
    If I wanted to do my import from my iPhone to Gmail. He told me that I would have to pay an additional purchase and I would only sink less than 5% if I would not pay the additional. Just another scam.
  • Easy to use

    By Gunner216s
    Easy for a non techie to use
  • Not useful

    By ashutosh1601
    Not intutive and wouldn’t sync all contacts without paying
  • Works great for iCloud to Google

    By Alwayslooking4
    I’ve synced two-way once and multiple times from iCloud to Google. It’s worked well.
