Sync In A Blink is a simple and easy to use application designed to synchronize your Google™ Gmail™ Contacts with the contacts on your Apple® iPhone™. All you need to get started is your Gmail account. No additional online services are required and none of your data is stored outside of your iPhone and Gmail account.

- Google sync limits contacts to 3 email addresses and does not use labels for e-mail addresses (i.e. Home, Mobile, Work, etc...). Sync In A Blink has no limit and allows labels.

There is a known issue with syncing Gmail Suggested Contacts. Google does not provide us with any means of excluding these contacts. Hence, they will always be synced. There is an option in the application settings to only sync contacts with a name. This will help reduce the number of suggested contacts that get synced as many suggested contacts do not have a name.

Before doing your initial sync, please read the documentation. It contains valuable of information to help you with your first sync. Gmail does not allow multiple contacts with the same e-mail address so you could get some conflicts when you sync for the first time. The documentation explains the options available to you for your first sync.
