There was another 3rd party app by some small time guy written to sync with google calendar, but it failed miserably as well. Too bad google dropped the ball on this one. I would have really enjoyed seeing a flawless sync to my blackberry.
I used to feel that way but I have working at an acceptable level. I sync my Outlook to Google Calendar using SyncMyCal, sync Google Calendar to my BB using Google Sync, and removed the calendar option from DM when syncing my BB to Outlook. That last step was key, kept events from getting corrupted by using Google Calendar as the central calendar. With that setup, I am keeping my main calendar and 5 other Google Calendars synced up.
Google Sync definitely still needs work, it doesn't handle recurring events well (tends to split them up into individual events) and reminders can be an issue as well. Also, Google Sync will remove events older than a week from your BB, which is why keeping it synced to Outlook is key for me. Even with the shortcomings, the benefits outweigh the negatives.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they continue to work out the kinks.
