goosync_logoA while ago I wrote the post The Best of Both Worlds: Sync your Google Calendar AND your Exchange Calendar. Goosync was one of the items that I came across for syncing your Google Calendar to mobile devices. The service was free until today. I received the below email. So, if you are using Goosync, time to switch over to good old Google Sync.

Dear Kristile Cain,

We would like to politely remind you of the pending service changes to GooSync taking place TODAY (Monday 19th October). As of 23:59 BST today the current free GooSync service will be discontinued as previously announced. This now only leaves a few hours in order to upgrade your account for continued, uninterrupted use. For full details regarding this and the options available to you please see below:

Free version of GooSync to be discontinued
—————————————————-

Since the first release of GooSync back in early 2007 GooSync has gone from strength to strength. Both the Premium and Free versions of GooSync have become market leaders in the over-the-air synchronization market. We have shown our continued commitment to our users over the years with a new infrastructure, further product development and enhanced support services.

We are also now happy to report that version 2.1 is now ready for release. Features from this new version will soon be rolled into the Premium version of GooSync. We also have 3 further updates planned for release over the next 9 months.

It has always been our goal to provide a professional service to all Free and Premium users. Given the exponential demand for GooSync over the last 12 months, it has become increasingly more difficult to continue this high level of service to both Premium and Free users.

It is therefore, with regret, that we are now discontinuing our Free service. For all of you that have come to love and rely on our free offering, we will be migrating the Free GooSync service into a new product “GooSync Lite”. This new lite version of GooSync will have all the same features as the existing free version.

The Free version will become unavailable and synchronization will be suspended on Monday 19th October. To continue benefiting from all the great features of GooSync you will be able to purchase GooSync Lite for a yearly fee of just £5.99 (approx $10). We are confident that this is priced very competitively and will allow us to continue to offer the professional level of service and support you have come to expect.

Alternatively you can upgrade to our GooSync Premium service. This allows full contact syncing with contact backup, multiple Google calendars with appointments up to 365 days in advance, appointment attendees, task synchronization, multiple device support, AutoSync and iGoogle gadgets. Also included will be GooSync’s new features from version 2.1, such as Google contact group synchronization.

GooSync Premium is available for as little as £19.95 per year, £29.95 for a two year subscription or a lifetime option for £39.95.

We hope you continue to use GooSync and we look forward to working with you in the future.

All upgrade options are available to purchase on-line at: https://www.goosync.com/user/Subscription.aspx

Thanks,

The GooSync Team.
