GooSync Premium Now Does Bidirectional Google Contacts Sync

goosynccontacts.gifI know you have heard of GooSync on BerryReview before to sync your Google Calendar and contacts 1 way with your BlackBerry. Josep just let me know that they have just added a serious upgrade to their premium feature set with bidirectional sync. Bidirectional means that it syncs the contacts from Google to your Berry AND from your Berry back to Google. The premium service costs 20 euros so I am not sure what that is in dollars currently. You can read more about it at www.goosync.com.

The new features in GooSync Premium

  • Sync appointments up to 365 days in advance
  • Sync multiple Google Calendars
  • Sync Google Contacts – Both ways
  • Sync Tasks

After the jump you can see a table breakdown of the features available in the free versus the premium version. Its a damn good alternative to a BES if your looking for the poor mans BES.

  1. Does it support syncing categories?

  2. I may have answered my own question:

    What are the differences between GooSync and Google Contacts synchronisation?

    * Using GooSync offers a sync between your GooSync contacts and your device. Your contacts are securely stored in GooSync and you can view and modify your contacts using the GooSync Contacts manager. In addition you can sync categories.
