+++ NEWS +++
The newest versions of Google APIs client Library for .NET dropped support for .NET 4.0.
Minimum requirement for GO Contact Sync Mod (starting with v3.10.0) is .NET 4.5 which is not working on Windows XP.
GO Contact Sync Mod synchronizes your Microsoft Outlook contacts with your Google Mail address book, including pictures, categories and notes.
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'.
Please find some guidelines how to sync your mobile phone contacts with Google Contacts here: http://www.google.com/mobile/sync

Incredibly easy to set up. Seems to do the job. Some comments though: 1. I have a bit over 4000 contacts, and it is taking well over an hour to sync. It would be far more efficient it did its job in batch by first identifying ALL the items to add in one fell swoop and performed an import instead of adding them one at a time. Same with the updates, which could be done as a mass delete + insert. I think this approach would cut the time down by about 80% 2. The detailed log is pretty darn useless. Far better would be a dashboard summary log. 3. The small summary at the top is totally inaccurate. For he past 30 minutes it's been running it reads Syncing contact 4048 of 4048 Nikki Beach...., while the detail log just keeps appending, painfully slowly. 4. Merging between disparate database like gmail and exchange is pretty complex. This app does a good job hiding the complexity, but I wonder what's missing on both sides, since they each have fields not supported by the other one.
It takes less than 5 mins to set up this tool. It does what it's meant to do, providing few useful options for customization. Unfortunately I faced the same issue reported by other users: it does not sync a copy-and-paste event in outlook calendar. Nice feature to have would be a selective sync based on google account's labels.
This is a great piece of software! I had some tricky issues when launching for the first time and had to adjust some settings but it now works like a charm!
Seems like a great program, just getting an error 'Outlook exception, please assure that Outlook is running and not closed when syncing: Out of memory or system resources. Close some windows or programs and try again.'
