app

iCloud is huge among consumers. And a bit of twist comes in when those very consumers have a device running the alien OS on it. That being Android. Apart from iCloud calendar and contacts, there are other apps involved with iCloud as well. WT covered iCloud mail setup for Android a while ago. That was helpful for a number of users in configuring mail settings. In this article, we will look at how to sync iCloud calendar and contacts on Android.

We are pleased to announce apps available for contacts and calendar sync for Android. Users can easily sync them from iCloud onto their Android devices. Developed by dmfs, these apps are designed and optimized for syncing iCloud service. Let’s get to know these applications a bit more.

Smooth Sync For iCloud Calendar

The name speaks for itself. Users can sync the iCloud calendars on their devices. It acts like a sync adapter for integration between the two. Simply enter account credentials, select calendar and sync would be in place. Both-way or two-way sync is one required feature which is present in this app.

Sync intervals can be customized based on user needs. iCloud and Android users can also add multiple accounts, import calendar names and colors, sync alarms, and sync the entire calendar. On the contrary, reminders are not synced and there is no push support as of yet. These can be expected in any future update. Above all, this works and works well. The app is available on Google Play Store for $2.88 CDN.

Surprisingly the name speaks for itself again. iCloud contacts can be synced onto devices using Android. Enter account credentials after installing the app, make account selection and contacts are synced. Works just like the Calendar app and is missing similar features as well. Contacts app is $3.88 CDN. A dollar more than the Calendar app!

Push is not supported as of yet though can be there in a future update. This app won’t sync contacts from other accounts to iCloud. i.e. Google account. Though, two-way sync is possible between Android and iCloud itself. Multiple accounts can be added with automatic account discovery. Users can also create custom labels and sync contact photos.
