Contacts Sync for Google Gmail application logo


With ”Contacts Sync for Google Gmail,” you can quickly & easily sync your Gmail & iPhone contacts, giving you access to your contacts from anywhere. 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 & iPhone contacts. This is the #1 app for syncing Google and iPhone contacts both in terms of downloads & reviews.

Also of significance, this app syncs contact groups with Google. For instance, you may have organized your Gmail contacts into groups such as "friends," "family," and "coworkers." After syncing, your iPhone groups will match your Gmail groups.

Of course, the app can be used to make your iPhone and Google contacts match each other, which also has the side effect of creating a backup.

Also, you can sync any one of your contact accounts with Google, including your corporate Exchange contacts, iCloud, Yahoo,, or any CardDAV account.

RIP OFF !!!!!!!!!!!!  DaleDunn  1 star

They pull you in for free and only give you 40 contacts to sync if you want the rest your contacts to be totally Saint then they charge you this app is a rip off as far as I’m concerned because it says get it for free and then later they say if you want everything done then you have to pay it should’ve said an amount to pay upfront again this is a rip off!!!!


It actually does what it says it does!  BillyBobSing  5 star

I've been using this for several years and it just works. Sad to say but it's a shock when you find an app that does what you expect simply and without a lot of fuss. I have 2000+ contacts syncs in a few minutes first time and only takes seconds on subsequent syncs. Simple, quick, accurate. Worth the money!


Excellent Tool  Robertron1973  5 star

Merge = DELETE  Wizardi11i  1 star

Smart merge my bum hole. I have two contacts exactly same person, same first name, one no surname but both same phone and same email. One pic Two other numbers on one(3 total on one) Also extra email on one Also Facebook and what's app and everything. Annoying to have different entries for the same contact. Cool there's an app that will "merge" the matching contents. Great I can check if the "matching ones" are actually a match. Yes, that's my wife and all the numbers and emails and accounts. Merge away my kind App. Hey why isn't my wife's contact details??? Where's her picture? Oh there's her mobile number. But no pic? Hmm I'll look in the contact and see what's there. FUCKALL! Two contacts with 3 phone 3 email and 2 names plus multiple app account details, becomes a one phone one email NO NAME "CONTACT" You're lucky ZERO stars isn't an option..

Connie Cunningham

HELP!!!  Connie Cunningham  1 star

I am sick of paying for apps or upgrade of apps only to find that they do not do a simple thing like allowing me to DELETE an email address that is no longer in use. I synced all contacts etc etc as requested, then i go to address a contact in GMAIL, & an old email address pops up, quite honestly I don't believe I should have to PAY for an App to do this simple requirement, WHY DOESN'T GMAIL MAKE THIS OPTION AVAILABLE?? Please excuse all the shouting i.e block letters, but I am sure there are others that are frustrated by the same problem. I believed this &4.99 App was going to solve this problem, don't mind paying IF IT WORKS!!!


So useful!!!  Dfraser74  5 star

Absolutely necessary  gmoose80  5 star

I am in person-to-person sales, and this app is absolutely essential to backload contacts from my phone onto Gmail and then from Gmail onto any other devices like tablet, desktop etc.


Great App!  JSourLemons  5 star

Love having all of my contacts in 1 spot and the ablility to access them from my iphone. Easy to setup and use!


Gotcha  Txjeff1  1 star

Buried in the fine print is that the free version of this app only works for 40 contacts. After install, they zing you with that and demand money for any real use. Deleted right away.


Experience a fully functional & well oiled contact database  KushDad72  5 star

Or for the first time enjoy all of the benefits associated with a properly functioning contact database. Case Study - the number of dup's in my iCloud database had grown out of control to the point of where even a simple name search would freeze my phone after only inputting the first letter of someone's surname so substantially it could often takes 10 seconds for available RAM to accept the entry of a 2nd letter; then my address book became corrupted exhibiting an assortment of strange occurrences - I had a random email address stealthily become part of more than 180 out 11,000 contacts, further my notes field in more than 500 records was mysteriously filled with data from other contact records along with info that I had no idea where it came from. So after trying a slew of utilities that never solved these problems, a couple years ago when I was in the midst of these problems a friend in IT recommended Contact Sync by Playa Apps. Based on what is likely the best iOS architecture that exists, Google Contacts, Contact Sync by Playa starts and ends with a solution which almost completely relies on Google Contacts architecture for an almost instantaneously repair and elimination of every problem mentioned above altogether along with merging and removing duplicate record in no time, this problems also spilled over into my Mac's contact database as well and Contact Sync by Playa not only fixed my iOS based problem but it also fixed my Mac's address book troubles simultaneously. Give it a try you'll love it. Jon K - Phila


Absolutely perfect  Papinet  5 star

That app does exactly what it is supposed to do and does it well. You will not regret one cent of what you pay for. Read carefully and follow strictly instructions before taking action as start can look a bit complex but after, you can forget it, it runs by itself.


Simply does its job  twospires  5 star

No complaints. Everything has worked great so far. $3 and I never have to worry about my contacts again.


Great App  Jmsoodjinda  5 star

Works like a charm every time I use it... like all the warnings before major changes are made. sometimes duplicates are made but it warns me of my own mistakes that makes them or deletions.
