Ever since Google started testing Google Sync two years ago, new Mac users left the Mac store wondering, “Which is the better option… to spend the $99 per year on Apple’s MobileMe application, or skip the expense and use Google Sync for free?”  Surprisingly, even with the recent rise of Google smart phones, Google Calendar and Google Docs, many Mac support experts still recommend MobileMe.

In case you’re unfamiliar or you haven’t already been sold on MobileMe at the Mac store, MobileMe is an application that automatically syncs your iPhone, MacBook or Mac desktop, iPod and iPad.  It is particularly helpful with email, contacts and calendar info, but also includes 20 GB or online storage space.  Since the application belongs to Apple, it’s no surprise to find that your Mac store, Apple support website and many Mac support professionals recommend it – but is it really worth $99 per year?

Now that Google Sync is able to accomplish the same thing on Droid phones, PCs, and any other laptop – as well as Macintosh computers and devices – MobileMe may be losing ground among longtime subscribers.  On the other hand, Apple stands to gain revenue from SmartPhone buyers who like the flexibility of using their cherished Gmail and Google applications on a new iPhone.  Now, thanks to Google Sync, iPhone users who want to access their Gmail and Google Calendar no longer need to go through iTunes or a third-party software application; they can sync up their Google contacts or calendar entries quickly and easily.

So why do so many of the support specialists at the Mac store still insist on MobileMe over Google Sync?  Much of it has to do with habit, but there is still the benefit that comes from MobileMe’s integration with all the other products for sale at the Mac store.  Sure, you can still use Google to sync data between most devices, but for someone who is already accustomed to MobileMe, Google Sync may seem a bit cumbersome.  And let’s face it; we all know how much Mac users enjoy the purity of using “all things Apple”.
