After six years of Android phones (HTC was by far the best!), I'm now using an iPhone. But I'm still Google-centric. Here are a few notes:
- The Google Calendar app for the iPhone is awesome. Love the scheduler view.
- Google Maps works fine.
- "Google" itself is ok. Seems to have trouble finding things at times. Fortunately, Siri is getting better.
- Google Contacts: finally tamed this as follows:
- Log into iCould on a PC
- Click on one contact
- Use ctrl-A to select all
- Hit the delete key
- Wait! (Takes a while)
- When prompted to delete, delete all the contacts
- Use ContactSync to manually sync from Gmail to iCloud
- From that point on you can use a two-way sync if you like
My transition to the iPhone was made easy by several years of using an iPad. Android is getting so very good, that it's a toss up which OS you prefer. The key with Android is to get a phone you're happy with.
For me the iPhone is the Cadillac of phones. Android is the Chevrolet. Both are nice, iPhone is a bit more luxurious -- and most of the time that's good, sometimes not so.
