Google + BlackBerry Integration - Two Down, One to Go
I love my BlackBerry and I love Google's suite of productivity and communications apps, but until recently I've had to rely on apps I don't love at all (like Microsoft Outlook and BlackBerry's own desktop sync) to make the two play nicely together. It was a great day when Google released Gmail for the BlackBerry, but I still had to reply on junky apps and/or physical connections to handle Calendar and Contacts sync. Yesterday Rahul tipped me off to the release of Google Calendar for the Blackberry, which I promptly downloaded and found to work flawlessly. Now all Google needs to do is ship an app to sync my Google contacts to my BlackBerry and I can cut my desktop (and Microsoft) out of the equation altogether. C'mon guys, you can do it!
