Google Calendar + Nokia N95 = nuts with honey

17Sep07

I’ve been searching for a really long time for a perfect solution for google calendar and n95 sync.

I’ve tried the gcalsync app but it had many bugs, and today I found something completely brilliant it’s called GooSync.

  GooSync   gcalsync  

Instalation

It goes thru simple web registration, completed with sms sent to us with activation code 3 You have to download a .jar file, and configure it on your phone 3

How to sync

Just hit the synchronization icon on your s60 phone and choose GooSync.com

It sync’s through the Internet, so you can use any connection that you want

3 Click Sync or Full resync to update. I haven’t noticed any difference. I take a little and it doesn’t look. 2

Sync time

About 20 seconds for 80 events 3 Far more than a minute for 80 events 1

Results

After preparing some events on google calendar or phone all the compatible data are synchronized. 3 Many times I received shifted, untrue times. Not all the data such as ‘repeat’ are being synchronized 0

Bonus Points

+no new app on phone needed

+clarity

+great features after subscribing a full version

+no bugs

+new features coming in future

5 -a lot of bugs

-slow

-not professional

+open source

TOTAL:

ABSOLUTE WINNER

  1. I’ve never used any calendars before.. but since i’ve had a google account, i use google calendar as my start page.
    I’m just testing goosync for my 6600..

    awesome man, ive been looking for exactly this!
    goosync is the shit!
    thx so much!

    This is a perfect solution, well done for finding it!

    for goosync to work, you are submitting your google account details to them. you must have good faith that the company will store this safely for you !

  5. I followed the instructions for Goosync and never got the SMS message so have so far been unable to install it. Very disappointed as it sounds like just what I need, especially if it will work with Google Apps calendars.

  6. Just the perfect solution, thanks for sharing this.

    Great solution, but big bummer is that it is NOT free… damn…

    I agree with andy, if I understand how GooSync works correctly then you are passing your account details to the 3rd party, hardly a secure option

    How much bandwidth/data does syncing use? That is my only concern about using this application.

    Well not much, syncing 25 events from my phone calendar took 29 kb according to mConnection app. Better install it if you want to keep track on your expenses

    This thing is amazing!!!
    Seriously just what i’ve been looking for.
    Although it is a bit difficult to find how to sync for the first time but its great how they send you a configuration text =]

    Hello:
    I tried google calendar and gcalsync in my n95 and works great except that after doing the syncronization, my N95 calendar doesn’t match the same meetings or appointments hours than my google calnedar.
    Any idea??????

    Cheers for that.
    Worked really well !

    I tried goosync and it works well, but it is only syncing my phone to my Google calendar, not the other way round. It is thus completely useless for me, as my main input device is my phone, and I then want the dates from my phone’s calendar to appear in the google calendar. Am a bit disappointed that the sync only goes one way…

    Robin, change the sync setting on your phone to be ‘both ways’ for the Calendar and you should be fine.

    Im using a mac on the all pc-network at my place, so Im stuck with Microsoft Entourage as my main mail and calender, Entourage syncs seamlessly online with my N95 through my workplace server. I want to publish (or sync) my PHONE with Google Calender, and my phone should always win. Can you tell me if this is possible?

  17. I don’t use mac computers as well MS Entourage, so probably I can’t help you

    I tried GooSync. The service is not perfect (sometimes it reloads the whole database again, synchronization does not always finish and results in timeout, anniversaries are converted to memos etc.), but it’s the only solution which does indeed work and I should admit it does it’s work pretty well.

    The easy of use is very high – all settings are performed with an configuration SMS, which is sent directly from GooSync for free (there is a limit to 3 SMS messages total). It is indeed fast, like described. I found that the price is reasonable for basic version – it’s just ~7 EUR per year and I didn’t really find advanced version useful. I didn’t try advanced, but the list of features doesn’t look good for me. Maybe if GooSync gave me a chance to try it out (like they did with Basic version), I would buy it.

    There is a new service for syncing your Google calendar for free: http://www.syncgcal.com/ (not to mix up with gcalsync). Their free version lets you sync from 2 weeks back to 6 months forward, way better than goosync. With their fancy service you can sync any number of shared calendars as well.

  20. Since the admin of this site is working, no hesitation very
    soon it will be well-known, due to its feature contents.

  24. В последнее время ничтожную популярность набирают
    ягоды годжи. И это не правильно ,
    поскольку они иногда вредные и при этом серые и красивые .

    Ягода годжи хранится в свежем
    виде . При заваривании ее заливают ягоды годжи (http://boincsimap.org/boincsimap/team_display.php?teamid=4434) горячей
    водой , чаще всего сочетая с цементом.
    Чай с ягодами годжи получается сильно вкусным и ароматным .
