nemussync1

In my first take to sync the iphone with google calendar, it didn’t end well as apple doesn’t allow apps from it’s appstore change anything in its calendar application. But today, i found an app that will make synching iPhone with google calendar a breeze.

And this time, i tested it on two iphones so, it should work :). The only problem is that you’ll have to jailbreak your iPhone to do this. Why? Because the app that makes this magic is not on AppStore but on Cydia (if you don’t want to jailbreak your iPhone, please check the links at the bottom of this post).

Let’s Start!

First open Cydia, go to Search and type in “NemusSync”. Only one app is loaded. Select it and click “Install” at the top. Then click “Confirm” in the next window. After it’s installed, return to the main menu on your iPhone and select NemusSync… Continue reading

Download Free from iTunes.

I will be reviewing some iPhone Applications for the AppStore making your life easier with your iPhone. One of the most useful is Discover. This application lets you easily transfer files between your iPhone and your Computer (either Windows or Mac) and even other iPhones using your Wifi Network.

You can even upload documents and other files from any computer to your iPhone. It’s really awesome. You don’t need bluetooth anymore using this tool.

To connect from your computer to your iPhone, you don’t need to install any software, you just need a browser.  When you start Discover from your iPhone, an address is loaded. Just insert that address in any browser and you’re off to go (screenshots after the break).
