Synchronizes your Address Book with Gmail

Syncman synchronizes your Mac's built-in Address Book with your Gmail Contacts with a minimum of fuss, hassle and frustration. Syncman does one thing and does it well. That said, here are a few features to give you an idea of what Syncman is all about:
  • Three different synchronization strategies:
    • Bi-directional sync between Address Book and Gmail
    • One-way synchronization from Address Book to Gmail
    • One-way synchronization from Gmail to Address Book
  • Support for most standard contact fields:
    • Name, Company, Title & Notes
    • Email Addresses & Phone Numbers
    • IM Accounts (AIM, Jabber, MSN, ICQ & Yahoo)
  • Scheduled synchronization with configurable ‘bother level
  • Can optionally run in the menubar as a background application (especially handy when using scheduled synchronization)
  • Shows you all proposed changes before it makes them
  • Optionally synchronize Gmail's “Suggested Contacts”
  • Works with both Gmail and Google Apps

@factoryjoe : It is, in a very rudimentary fashion. Here's the <a href="http://wateree.net/blog/2008/05/new-competition/">blog post</a> I wrote when 10.5.3 came out. Syncman offers a number of advantages over the built-in syncing from Apple, and there will only be more advantages as time goes on.

Isn't this built into Address Book in 10.5.3 now?
