Synchronising your calendars on the web, a Mac and a Nokia

November 13th, 2007 · 1 Comment

calendar photoOne of the ways I manage my time is by keeping a totally digital calendar. Now, no matter where I add an event, whether it be on my phone, my Facebook or my MacBook, all my appointments are available via Google Calendar, my mobile phone or my laptop.

It was easy to set up, but for it to work smoothly I had to bring a number of applications together, so I thought I’d list them all in one place.

HereĀ  are the applications I use to sync my calendars:

Facebook -> Google Calendar (one way): fbCal (website – donation encouraged). Syncs your Facebook events and birthdays with Google Calendar.
Google Calendar <- > iCal (two way): Spanning Sync (Mac OS X application – $65).
iCal <-> Nokia (two way) APPLE: iSync (pre-installed Mac OS X application), NOKIA: Nokia PC Suite. [ALSO: Optional, but well worthwhile – syncmobile applescript (free) and Cronnix (donation) can be used to automate the sync every hour.]

Hope that all makes sense! Please use the comments for any questions.
