We’ve talked about GooSync in the past; now it’s time to reverse those first three letters and mention OggSync! MoDaCo caught on to this application and what’s nice here is a free basic version as well as a paid commercial version. For free you get these features:
Full 2 way sync from your phone to one of your Google calendars
Supports Google Hosted Domains
No 3rd party involvement, keep things simple with just your phone and Google Calendar.
Full support for repeating events, and changes to those repeating events
Uses over the air or cradled connections so you can always be up to date
Compatible with Outlook and ActiveSync
For a $30 a year subscription (or $4 a month), you can add:
Multiple calendar sync – Sync any number of Google public and private calendars
Automatic Synchronization! Let OggSync keep your phone and Google in sync in the background.
Default Calendar Mapping: Optionally have events with no matching Google Calendar category get put in your default Google Calendar
And of course, existing subscribers get automatic full upgrade to OggSync Pro, thank you for your patronage!
Although I’ve recently converted to Google’s RSS Reader, I still haven’t moved away from Outlook / Exchange for my calendar needs. Then again, I pay for a hosted Exchange server, so maybe the free Google and OggSync method is the way to go.
