GO Contact Sync is what I use. Can automatically sync your contact changes between Gmail and Outlook. Great for me when paired with WorldCard Mobile business card scanner, automatically pulling the contact info to outlook.

I've been using "Sync2" for about a year and it works GREAT! Best $49.99 I've spent in a while...at least on phone stuff!!! I've recommended this to many of my customers and they too have been very happy with the results!!

Yeah, like I really want Google to have access to my thousand-plus contacts, addresses, numbers and emails, not to mention my ten-year calendar. If a phone doesn't sync hard-wire without the cloud, i ain't buying.Cuts out all except Blackberry, Samsung and Apple.

Your picture above clearly shows a DejaOffice Calendar. DejaOffice is by far the easiest and best way to use your Outlook Data on your iPhone or Android. DejaOffice supports Contact, Calendar, Task, Notes and Journal sync, shows the calendar with the correct colors (as in your photo above), and supports all your favorite Outlook featuresl like recurring tasks.

With DejaOffice, you can transfer your data for free. You only need to pay if you want to sync (update the data) after two weeks. And after that, it's just $14.95. That's a lot better use of time than horsing around with CSV files and giving all your customer data to Google to use for marketing.

I'm disappointed by this post. The writer confuses the need to transfer/export versus the need to sync. Seems we do need those "costly" syncing apps after all. Sigh.
