GO Contact Sync Mod synchronizes your Microsoft Outlook contacts with your Google Mail address book, including pictures, categories and notes. Since version 3.5.6 it also syncs your Outlook Notes on demand to Google Drive. Since version 3.7.0 it also syncs your Outlook Calendar Appointments on demand to Google Calendar. This Mod fork adds many enhancements and bug fixes to the obviously dead project 'Go Contact Sync'.

I am very excited about this project if it can do what others have already experienced. However, I have not been able to get a successful sync yet, so my rating is based on it's potential only. If it actually will start successfully syncing my calendar, that would make it a 4-5 star app easily. Using 3.9.0 with Windows 7 and Outlook 2013
Found a bug, I am currently use this application with Outlook 2013, Windows 8.1, Go Sync Mod 3.8.5 with an LG G3 Phone. I have also noticed this with Outlook 2010, Windows 8.1 and the Samsung Galaxy 3 Phone. When creating a contact it appears that all information Syncs across all devices however: When updating a contact on the phone: - Just updating the notes - the notes sync with GMAIL and I can see the updated contact. However when running the Go Sync Mod application it does not update the Outlook contact. I currently have it set to MERGE PROMPT. - I then proceeded to updated the contact details such as address and group on the phone. The change again was noted in GMAIL. However when running the Go Sync Mod application. Instead of updating my Outlook Contact. It deleted it. I didn't notice it until now and then realized it has been doing this for the past 4 versions of the application. I have not numerous contacts not realizing that they were deleted because I made an update on my phone. So Go Sync Mod seems to work if going from: Outlook > GMAIL > Phone but when you go Phone > GMAIL > Outlook you will loose contacts when updating.
Has the minimum of what we need. We already have our Google and iCalendars syncing. If we could get outlook and google to sync that would be perfect. This software does send an event to google from outlook and the other way around. Rescheduling is spotty. I got it to reschedule a event once, but it hasn't worked any other time I tried it. The event would not update to the new date in google after having moved it in outlook or vice versa. Also there is no help file and no wiki and from what I hear, no support in general besides the nice updates they seem to have included over time. Also in order to use this service you have to disable secure apps in your google account because this app uses an unsecure connection which is also a big downside.
Update: Google Authentication issue fixed. Now if we can get to compare individual contacts only. Works great with Outlook 2003. 4,000+ downloads. Congrats devs! Thank you for this application.
I intend to use the sync option only for my calander, the sync works fine BUT appointments copied in outlook(ctrl-drag) arn't synced!! If this could be fixed that would be great!!
