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.

Ratings and Reviews
I’ve been using Contacts Sync for so many years I don’t remember when I started. But I do remember what a mess it was before Contacts Sync to keep my Apple Contacts in sync with my Gmail account. Not to mention it was impossible to sync and use Google Contacts Groups with Apple Mail.
The other very important benefit to using a truly necessary utility is having access to the developer when a problem occurs or you fail to understand something the app is doing…or not doing. This app’s developer is very transparent, and in all these years whenever I had a question he was always there for me. I just realized this weekend how important that was when I had a small issue of forgetting how to do something and emailed him late Friday evening. I expected a reply on Monday, which would have been just fine, but he replied in only a few minutes. How many developers do this? I’m guessing not many.
Whenever I get a new iPhone, this is one of the first apps I install…I couldn’t live without it. I sincerely appreciate the developer’s commitment to keeping it updated and providing users with one of the most useful apps in the App Store.
Awesomeness app!! and I have 2 productive requests please
Easy to use and saves lots of time. I have all my contacts in my multiple Google email accounts specially the email addresses with their names to compose emails easily and look professional. I have an important request. I have multiple Google email accounts and I’d like to set up all of them on your app to have all new contacts synced automatically at once in the background and in the Standard/Auto modes without manually signing out from an account and then signing in another. Also in the event of duplicates, would you please add a tab to show possible duplicated contacts split between different Google email accounts separately with the ability to edit the merges or create separate contacts when needed? Thx a lot…
Developer Response ,

Take these steps for success
On my first installation, I ended up with over 40,000 contacts in iCloud. That’s not good. It’s slowed down all my email application to a crawl. So this app works great, but you have to take the right steps, and here they are. First, from your desktop, export your contacts file by going to file/Export/contacts archive. That will be your backup. Next, turn off the synchronization between your desktop contacts app and iCloud from your desktop system preferences/iCloud. There is too much mirroring creating too many duplicates. Next, go to iCloud and delete everything by going to the gear icon in the lower left, clicking select all, selecting delete. Get rid of all your Google contacts duplicates by clicking the duplicates menu item in the left navigation pane. Stop Google from automatically creating contacts from each email by going into settings/create contacts for auto complete. Once your list is pretty clean, you’re finally ready for the next step, which is setting up the app.
