Apparently this popped up in iTunes 7.7 but I didn’t notice it until 8.0 and I haven’t seen anyone write anything up about it online.
It looks like iTunes added the ability to sync to Google Contacts (thank the gods) from iTunes when syncing your iPhone (or iPod) with your computer.
Unfortunately in 7.7 when the feature was introduced and still in 8.0, contact Groups seem to screw the synchronization all up. There doesn’t seem to be a solution for this right now from what I could see, but given that I don’t use any Groups in Google Contacts, I wasn’t too worried about this.
I am worried however, about the few folks that said the synchronization ran and now they have 1/5th of the contacts they used to have… I’ve painstakingly built out my contact information by hand over the last 6 years, and loosing half of it hardly sounds like a good idea to me.
Anybody else try this yet and have good things to say?
