  1. Outlook4Gmail

*Syncing Android data with Mac* And if you need to sync data between Mac and Android, you should talke a loot at SyncMate, synchronization tool for Mac and Android. SyncMate allows syncing personal data as contacts and calendar events along with media files (images, videos, music) and whole folders.

you know Manually updating your email accounts is normally a time-taking task. GO Contacts Sync Mod support you spare these efforts by syncing your Outlook email contacts with your Gmail address book (including pictures, categories, and notes) automatically.

This standalone Window utility automatically detects the accounts stored inside Outlook and readily syncs them with Gmail. but  before this, you will need to enter your Gmail (username and password). Once the connection is established, the syncing process will kick in.

When you enable the Auto Sync feature, the program will start the task at a user-defined interval, and the results will be displayed with a  detailed log, bearing the information related to the names of the contacts that have been synchronized.
