Android Contacts Sync

I wanted to sync the Android Contacts with the Mac OS X Adressbuch (Addressbook). This could not be done the groupware Zarafa, please see ActiveSyncZarafa.

Fortunately there is the free edition of SyncMate, which allow to sync Calendar and Contacts to the Mac.

Features wanted:

  • Sync bi-directional Adressbuch (Addressbook) and Android smartphone
  • Select the group
  • Sync via WiFi

  • Automatic sync is not necessary, because the contacts does not change so often

I will describe what I found in the following chapter.
