SmoothSync for Cloud Contacts

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!!

Excellent app and dev Once again, smooth sync does what it claims. 2 factor users need to create app specific passwords to get this going but it's worth the minor inconvenience.

After much use I have come to the conclusion that your app is terrible. It drains battery life, never syncs properly and at times makes all my contacts disappear. To the point where I'm switching back to an iPhone.

It made my day. That is what I call a smart productive app.

the good sync from iCloud, with glitches - I switched from iPhone to Note 2 and wanted contacts to be in sync (both ways) with Android and iCloud (Mac, iPad). It works smoooothly. (Sept. 2013) - Recently changed phone to a Note4. Every time I turn off the phone, or change SIM, SmoothSync account disappears from Settings/Personalization/Accounts. Hence all iCloud contacts vanish, along with phone logs, until I add SmoothSync account once again. (Nov. 2014)
