Google Calendar Sync for Windows Mobile Devices

GMobileSync is a free software for Pocket PCs and smartphones running Windows Mobile 5.0, that synchronizes Google Calendar with PocketOutlook. The software doesn't require Outlook on your desktop.

Some features:

* Choose a range of days to sync based on today's date

* Remove all Google Calendar events from PocketOutlook without deleting any manually entered events

* Automatically exit GMobileSync when synchronization is complete

* Supports recurring events.

In the current version (1.2), changes made in PocketOutlook aren't added to Google Calendar, but this should be fixed in GMobileSync 1.3, that will be released next Monday.

  2. Of course, if you wanted to sync with Desktop Outlook, you could always use SyncMyCal

  4. There is also a nice project call GooSync - it allows you sync with mobile phones and even with PDA with Windows Mobile 2003/Windows Mobile 5.

  7. Goosync is quite ok , but I would prefer a direct sync without Goosync's Proxy Server. Regards Jwl

  8. We made a service that syncs Google Calendar with Windows Mobile phones, using the built-in active sync (OTA) protocol. We proxy that protocol to the Google calendar access API:

  9. I am going to give it a try. From what I hear, the two way sync could use a little work, but I'm all about freeware and open source, so I'm willing to overlook some problems now, if the future is promising

  10. www.nuevasync.com is the way to go. I tried it like a year ago and it was weak, but it looks as if they got some stuff finally working on it.

  11. NuevaSync works neatly, but I don't think it supports google-managed domains...

  12. GmobileSync is abandoned, I think.
    Never-the-less NuevaSync WORKS like a charme!!
    NO software to install on a Windows Mobile device!

    Way to go!!

  13. I think this program is excellent but I have many calendars on Google Calendar and it will only sync the first one, am i missing anything that I should do.
    Can any one let me know what to do?

  14. Nuevasync worked perfectly for me--easy to set up and, the best part, nothing to install on the mobile--just change a couple of settings. Unlike most others doesn't require installing a .net framework. I love something that works the first time.
