Sync Your iPhone With Google Calendar

If you're like us, you use Google Calendar to share work appointments and collaborate on scheduling meetings. It's a simple and nice alternative to Outlook calendar and it's accessible virtually anywhere. If you're still like us, you also have a new iPhone and you wanted all those Google Calendar appointments on your new device. The process is simple and painless, at least for Mac users with iCal.

First, go to your Google Calendar and find the "Calendar Settings" drop-menu. Click on that and go to "Calendar Settings."

Then, find the Private Address section and click on the ICAL icon. This will generate a URL for your calendar.

Open up iCal and go to Calendar -> Subscribe. Paste the URL from the Google calendar here.

Once your iCal is subscribed, your next iPhone sync will dump all your Google calendar events right in.

Done! The best part is you only need to do this once -- iCal will grab new appointments at your specified intervals and your next sync will be up to date.
