CNET Editors' review
BusySync is yet another application that will make you say, "Why didn't Apple think of that?" BusySync makes it extremely easy to sync up multiple iCal calendars between different computers on a home or office network, without any need for a central server. BusySync is easy to set up, and users can view and edit shared calendars, instantly and automatically publishing any changes--plus you can simply sync peer-to-peer, between different Macs, or even sync between a combination of individual Macs or calendars hosted on a server.
Even better, BusySync syncs with Google Calendar, too, so that means you can view, edit, and sync calendars online, from anywhere (and power users can also sync using remote access over the Internet). This lets you synchronize calendars between home and work, and any changes made offline are synced the next time you connect. BusySync also lets you put password-protection on certain calendars, and limit access to particular users. Overall, this is already a useful app and a good value, but current users will also get a discount if they convert to BusySync's upcoming big-sister app BusyCal.
BusySync is a Mac OS X System Preference Pane that runs in the background and adds calendar sharing and syncing capabilities to iCal. BusySync lets you sync iCal with Google Calendar and share calendars with other users on your LAN or the internet without the need for a dedicated server. Shared calendars can be viewed and edited by multiple users and changes are instantly synchronized with all users on the network and/or with Google Calendar. You can even make changes to shared calendars while offline and your changes will sync when you reconnect to the network.

"Great for syncing Google Calendar with MobileMe."
Version: BusySync 2.3
It was very easy to figure out, and has been very helpful in keeping all of my calendar events organized.
I only use it for syncing Google Calendar with Mobile Me. I'm still using the demo, and have not yet decided whether I'll buy the full version, or just stop using Google Calendars.
I am a new user of MobileMe, and teacher -- I use Macs in the classroom, but the school I teach at uses PCs. Therefore I usse iCal, Entourage, and Google Calendars.Through a bit of research, I read that I'd be able to use BusySync to bring my Google Calendar into my MobileMe calendar - which already contained my Apple Mail Calendar and my Microsoft Entourage calendar. I love having them all in once place.
