Google Apps Connector Syncs BlackBerry, Gmail Platforms

2 of 8

Native Applications

The Google App Connector for BES (BlackBerry Enterprise Server) lets users tap the BlackBerry's native e-mail, calendar and contact applications with (mostly) full sync capabilities back to Google's e-mail servers.

Push E-Mail

Google App Connector enables push e-mail for Google Apps Premier or Education users. By default, sent e-mails appear in the in-box (top entry), but that can be changed.

Calendar Sync

Calendars sync from cloud to device, but not vice versa.

Contact Search

It appears that users can search their on-device contact store, but, in my tests, the feature did not yet work.

Google Mobile App

While the BlackBerry e-mail app offers local search, users will still need the Google Mobile App to search the entire in-box.

Tagging E-Mails

Users can archive or "star" e-mails from the BlackBerry by moving e-mails to the appropriate folder. Such tags appear normally in the Gmail Web interface.
