Spanning Sync

Posted in mac, product review, tips by beebe4 on August 8, 2008

So Google announced support for CalDAV last month. I tried it out on my MacBook Pro, hoping that it would allow me to have a free way to sync my Google Calendar to iCal and to my iPhone (using Mobile Me).

I am sad to say, that if you have more then 3 calendars (i.e. shared calendars for work), that Spanning Sync is still the way to go.

The main reasons are:

  • Each calendar is a new Account in iCal
  • The Spanning Sync Pref Pane is so much simpler then having to go find some cryptic group email address and replacing the Google Calendar URL
  • Spanning Sync “just works” and is worth the $20 ($5 discount for using the code MM397X)
