SmoothSync for Cloud Contacts


SmoothSync for Cloud Contacts syncs your iCloud contacts. Due to its implementation as sync adapter it integrates seamlessly with the native contacts app and operates invisible in the background.
This app is bundled with Contact Editor Pro to allow you to edit synced contacts on pre-Android 4 devices.

Also, check out SmoothSync for Cloud Calendar to sync your iCloud calendars!

Samsung S5 users: Please note that some S5 devices come with a broken contacts app that crashes when opening a contact synced by this app. Please report any crashes to Samsung.

Important note for Android 4.1 and Samsung users: To prevent the removal of your accounts on reboot install this app (before you install SmoothSync):

As of Android 4.2 this issue is fixed and the workaround no longer necessary (except for Samsung devices), please uninstall it.

The app is designed to be as user friendly as possible. Just enter your account data and SmoothSync will keep your contacts in sync.

The app will not sync Contacts from other accounts (like Google) to iCloud!

Please, if you find a bug send me an email. Without detailed error description I often can't do anything especially when I can't reproduce it.

Important! If your phone removes the accounts on reboot, move the App back from SD card to the phone. Some phones (if not all) can't handle sync adapters on SD Card properly. Also check if you need the workaround app mentioned above.

Thanks to the guys at http://www.busymac.com/ for their support!!

Uses too much data I've been using the app for about 45 days now and it has used over 1.5GB of my data plan. I contacted the developer and they have no idea why. It uses so much data it put me over my limit the first month I used it. I wish I could uninstall but there are no other options. for an ex-iphone user. I am starting to feel unsafe about using it and have started to look for another option. I cannot trust an app that sends so much data out of my phone.

It's okay The app overrides the permissions of the phone and force stops the app from working. Whenever I have to create a new contact or edit one I have to do it in the phone first.
