Configure UMN Google mail and calendar on iPhone, iPod Touch

I find that iPod Touch is only worth as much as much content is on it. And by content I mean various data - email, contacts, calendar, notes etc., apps in general and of course games. Thus it needs to be configured.

Now that the UMN is using Google apps it should be a snap to configure email and calendar syncing with an iPod Touch. It is easy if you know what to do ;-).

For configuring UMN gmail for you iPod Touch or iPhone you can create "other" mail account and the enter settings from OIT provided email settings page. This works fine for email, but it does not synchronize the calendar.

To synchronize email and the calendar too, it is better to use instructions from Google .

In both cases you will need to create a Google Apps Desktop password in the MyAccount options.
