Improved Google Contact Sync in Snow Leopard

Last month I complained about contact sync between Google and my Mac address book. Finally I purchased a license of Spanning Sync which works pretty fine for me. Now there is a new feature in the zero feature release of Mac OS X aka Snow Leopard:

In May 2008, we told you how iPhone and iPod touch users could sync their Gmail contacts with Address Book in Mac OS X 10.5. Now with Mac OS X 10.6, syncing Gmail contacts is also available to users who do not have an iPhone or iPod touch. If your Mac is running Snow Leopard, you can turn on contact sync in the Address Book preferences.

The syncing is better, too: in Mac OS X 10.6, only contacts in Gmail’s “My Contacts” group are synced, rather than all of Gmail’s contact suggestions. And photos are now transferred as well, since sometimes you just need to put a face to a name.

Will order Snow Leopard for my Macs now.
