Missing restrictions[edit]

The restrictions are not mentioned. I'm aware of some calendar sync restrictions, but haven't found comprehensive sources. -- SEWilco (talk) 15:31, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

No mention of data security...[edit]

this article doesn't even begin to discuss data security between the mobile device and the cloud. footnote 4 is from a 2009 article--that is eons ago on the web. is the data encrypted coming and going to the cloud? is it encrypted on the cloud? what rights does google have to the data? can they decrypt it on the cloud? ..... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:100:6156:EC7F:0:0:0:1 (talk) 14:26, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Dubious use of past tense.[edit]

The sync service is still working for retail customers, so the article as written is not accurate. The site is still live. I wonder if it is just its scope that has been reduced - for example I don't see a reference to exchange or symbian. But it certainly works between android devices.

I would like to add -through my experience- that not only does calendar, gmail, contacts, chrome /bookmarks, play books etc get synced post factory reset or new mobile phone aquisition, but to my amazement, all apps installed from Play Store. In other words, be it tablet or mobile phone, you get a clone of your previously running device right down to screen shortcuts. My devices are operating under android 4.1.2 to 4.2.4 OS. I'm researching how this is possible, but have no result yet. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Igmarshfrance (talkcontribs) 23:18, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
