How to Drop MobileMe for GoogleMe



+ Add a Comment


I never really liked MobileMe and decided to drop it back in October. My low(er)-cost solution for syncing Google calendars and contacts works very well for me. Here are my details:



Actually did the opposite and switched from Google to MobileMe for my syncing. Google is okay, but you get what you pay for in the end.

Contact syncing woes was the number one reason for my switch. Google tends to mangle contacts because the fields do not align perfectly between Apple Contacts and Google Contacts. I often found myself losing contact data or having to update and correct fields. Huge hassle!

Calendar syncing tended to work more reliably, but the fact Google handles secondary calendars a little oddly compared to MobileMe was a turn off.

Email is a wash imho.
