Mac Address Book synchronization with Android device - iCloud problem
Authored by: playdrums on Feb 25, '12 12:39:00PM

Much better options are available than syncing device to device (or Address Book/Google syncing). There are now sync agents for Android (after install they will appear in your Settings>Accounts & Sync on your Android device). They will sync directly with iCloud.

For syncing contacts:
https://market.android.com/details?id=org.dmfs.carddav.sync&feature=search_result

For syncing calendars:
https://market.android.com/details?id=org.dmfs.caldav.lib&feature=search_result
-or-
https://market.android.com/details?id=org.dmfs.caldav.icloud&feature=search_result

I'm using the latter for calendar since it requires no specific server knowledge.

In short, just sync directly to iCloud. I completely disabled google syncing for calendars and contacts on my android device. I will eventually get an iPhone but until then, this is the best way to go.

i have iPhone (US SIM) and Nexus S (DoCoMo and whatever) and sync to my MBA/Lion with CardDAV-Sync and SmoothSync.

they made the Android device a first class member of my device set.
