Spanning Sync: Google Calendar’s best friend.

This post is older than six months. You may find a more recent article pertaining to your topic by visiting our homepage or using the search box in the upper right.

This is a great utility for all Mac folks out there, it’s called Spanning Sync and it allows you to sync your Google Calendar account with your Mac through iCal. I’ve been using it for the past 2 months and I can’t live without it! It’s a godsend for people using Google Apps like us here at Connect – everyone on the team can see what reviews are coming up, and they can make their own personal calendar privately.

Plus, with the upcoming iPhone which uses iCal – you’ll be able to sync to it too! Anything that supports the iSync app can sync your Google Calendars! Some applications only sync one way and don’t allow you to see updates on your PC or Mac – Spanning Sync syncs both ways, updates in Google Calendar appear in iCal and vice-versa.

Spanning Sync does a great job at a great price. $25 for a one-year subscription and $65 for a lifetime license. Have multiple Macs? No problem – Spanning Sync is licensed by your Google account, so you don’t have to buy separate licenses.

Final Verdict
5 out of 5 stars.
