Shows no progress I typically have to tap this widget around 5 times to make it first respond. That, or it just starts very slowly. Which leads to my next point. There is no way of telling if it is doing anything. It spins in circles indicating that it's running, but doesn't show me what account is currently syncing or its overall progress. It would be great to have the option of a status bar progress bar to do this. Also, I have tried the notification service, but it doesn't work unless the app is open (not the widget).
Nice app, simple to use, doesn't sync contacts Android -> Goog Very easy-to-use app. Useful for someone who doesn't like to use Google's auto sync feature. Google Calendar sync works in both directions. Google Contacts sync only works in direction Google -> Android, not in opposite direction. Have contacted developer, will update if I get a response. Update - apologies, this was due to my adding a new contact to the phone's contact list instead of the Google contact list. Now working perfectly.
Highly recommended Turning on auto sync was absolutely unnecessary for me. I just want my contacts to get synced once in a while and I did not want to go through all the steps to manually sync it. Synker gives you better control and helps a lot to save battery. My total screen time has increased by atleast an hour now. You can also integrate synker with Tasker for this to be done automatically. This is a must have for saving battery. Highly recommended.
Just the sync notifications make it great This app is one of a kind and fantastic. If you have ever experienced massive battery drain due to Android being stuck trying to sync something for hours, this app's notifications (once enabled) will show you that a sync is happening and that is most likely why your battery drained 50% in the past hour.
This is superb! By combining it with Tasker (rooted phone required!) I no longer have to see or deal with my business emails outside of my business hours. Why such functionality is not built into Android itself is beyond me, but in any case it's well worth the £1.28
Works great AFTER you figure out that you MUST create a new widget on the desktop that actually does the sync. The widget that appears on the desktop after installation is useless and really only needs to be on the apps screen. Once you create a new widget, you can configure it up to selectively sync whatever you need.
