But in iTunes there an option to sync Internet Explorer.  I would like to sync Google to my iPhone but in iTunes there is no option for that.

@Ramante,

You do NOT sync your iPhone to Google through iTunes.  

You want to go into the account settings and link your iPhone directly to Google.

That is what we want; sync Googles bookmark (favorites) to our iphones in the traditional way. We don't want to purchase the option recommended.

As the pic shows, there is no option for Google, just Internet Explorer & Safari.

Is there a way to successful transfer Google favorites to my iPhone?

After various days of googling this problem, we have Finally found a way to successfully sync our iPhone with Google.

Re-reading this question before closing, we found that EE ve3ofa, though not complete, was the answer to follow.  Unfortunately we didn't know the how-to of export/import in both Google & Internet.  But that is the way to go.  Nevertheless, for the benefits of all who follow this question, this ios the correct way to sync Google Favorites with iPhone:


There is no direct sync of Google to iPhone.  To Sync, you must do the following:

First, export Google Favorites

   1. Export Google Bookmarks (Tools >> Bookmarks >> Bookmark manager)
   2. Click on 'Bookmark Bar' or the Bookmasks/links desired to export
   3. Click Organize
   4. Select Export Bookmarks to HTML
   5. Save the Bookmarks to your location or folder

Then, Import Google Bookmarks into Internet Explorer:

   1. Open Internet Explorer
   2. Open Import option (File >> Import and Export)  
   3. Click Import from File
   4. Select 'Favorites'
   5. Browse to your location or folder
   6. Select where to import the bootmarks
   7. Click Finished

Finally, Sync your iTunes with your iPhones

Statement Incorrect: "There is no direct sync of Google to iPhone."

I will prefer the paid option because it syncs automatically without doing import / export each and every time there is a change in bookmark.

Paid option is recommended for those who changes bookmarks regularly otherwise traditional way is recommended...

Moreover the solution came out to import and export and that is not called Sync.....

Sync.... doesn't mean import/export..


Your question was how to sync... not import and export....

Prior placing any question we always google on our own first.  For this particular problem we found and approximate of 17 paid solutions. We don't want to pay for every problem that arises, but instead figure out a way to solved the problems without directly paying for each one and knowing the how-to's for future problems.

We've been with EE since 2007 and all our questions has been answered with references, resources and sound clear advice without the need of purchasing  recommended apps.  We have more than 700 questions answered by EE; imagine if for each question we have to cash out for the solution?

Nevertheless, we have awarded AmitKhilnaney for his efforts.
