How to Sync Google Outlook calendar contacts tasks notes – now that Google Calendar Sync is DEAD :(


Aug 29
I was crying when I found out that Sync Google Outlook calendar wasnt working. Sadly Google Calendar Sync is now Dead <sarcasm>”Thanks Google!”</sarcasm>.
But dont worry – I have found an excellent replacement which works even better. I now use a neat little sync tool called GSYNKIT: it keeps my personal GMAIL calendar/contacts/tasks/notes fully synced with my work OUTLOOK setup.

Sync Google Outlook calendar

gSyncit is a Microsoft Outlook add-in that allows for the synchronization of Outlook calendars, contacts, notes, and tasks with your Google account. In addition, gSyncit also supports synchronization between Outlook and Toodledo,Pocket Informant Online, Evernote, Dropbox, Simplenote and Nozbe.

For example – add a meeting in outlook and it appears on my phone… edit on my phone and it updates back in my OUTLOOK. Bloody neat.
GSYNKIT is a paid app but it’s free to try out for a single account… thats right, the free version lets you sync one outlook calendar to one Google calendar in two ways. That is probably enough for most users but for $20 you get the fully automated, pro version. I donated $20 and now fully sync my personal Android devices, with my work Windows Devices and my Apple Macbook over multiple email accounts and multiple calendars. Big thumbs up! Try it.. love it… buy it… (I am not affiliated with this product in any way it’s just a neat little tool that saves me time on a near daily basis)
If you’re a Google Mail user then you should check it out. It officially gets the Litten seal of approval.
