Syncing data between iCloud and Android? Is it possible at all? Yes, it is. If you have SyncMate of course.
Unfortunately, Apple doesn’t offer any tools for syncing data on Mac or in iCloud with Android devices directly. So updating contacts or calendar events between Apple devices and your Android phone or tablet can be a real hassle. SyncMate covers this gap and syncs data between your iCloud directly to Android, without necessity of transferring data to Google account.
So, what is SyncMate and how it works?
SyncMate is a sync tool for Mac that syncs data on Mac with numerous devices and online accounts. Android devices are among those supported.
You can sync contacts and calendars between Android and iCloud for absolutely free, if you need to sync media or folders with files you’ll need to upgrade to Expert. The full list of sync options offered for Android devices can be found here.
