Google contacts on ipad

If you’re like I am, you want to have a single place to add contact information and distribute it between devices (phones, computers, etc). I use google voice for my phone service through my ipad, and talkatone as the application. The problem is, talkatone doesn’t sync with google contacts, just the ipad & facebook. So, here’s what I did:

Here’s how to sync your contacts to your device:

Open the Settings application on your device.
Select Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
Select Add Account…
Select Other
Select Add CardDAV Account
Fill out your account information in the following fields:
Server: Enter “”
User Name: Enter your full Google Account or Google Apps email address.
Password: Your Google Account or Google Apps password. (If you’ve enabled 2 Step verification, you’ll need to generate and enter an application specific password.)
Description: Enter a description of the account (e.g. Personal Contacts).
Select Next at the top of your screen.
Make sure that the “Contacts” option is turned to ON.
After you’ve completed setup, open the Contacts app on your device, and syncing will automatically begin.
