Hi all

I have an imac and until i recently lost it, an iphone which worked brilliantly with the imac. i am now thinking of getting an android smartphone but want to be sure that i will be able to sync my Outlook for mac contacts and calendar plus my iphones libraries on the imac with the phone. i have seen on line that there are a number of apps which claim to do that but i cannot tell how well they do it or which is the best.

If anyone has any thoughts or suggestions, a reply posting will be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Roger

An Android will not sync with iCal. I had to export my wifes the iCal calendar to Google Calendar then sync that.

Missing Sync will sync iCal with Android but costs. Click Here

Hi Bremner

I had come across Missing Sync so your mention of it gives it more credibility and i will investigate further.

Actually i will be syncing with Outlook for Mac and not ical.

Also, I did not mean iphones but iTunes - a world of difference. Hopefully that will work with Missing Sync. What do you think?

Missing Sync certainly says it can sync iTunes with Android.

I used it when I had a Windows 6 phone to sync all my Mac calanders and contacts and it was fine.
