A month ago I left the stone age of dumb mobile phones and finally got myself a smartphone. Given the choice between a Blackberry and an iPhone, I chose an iPhone.
So far I love the phone, but as a heavy Google Apps user, I was unhappy with the options for calendar, contacts and mail. The mobile Google interface is very good, but it bothered me that I couldn’t sync my Google calendars to the iPhone’s built-in calendar without plugging into iTunes and syncing via iCal subscriptions. Plus, the mobile Google Calendar event creation is – unlike just about everything else in the Google mobile suite – completely unusable. Well, at least I get SMS reminders and access to my Gmail accounts. I could live with that.
Then yesterday Google released Calendar and contact syncing for iPhone and Windows Mobile devices. O frabjous day!
