    Searched the forums and couldn't find anything...I was wondering if anyone knew of a program/widget/workaround for this:
    I have auto sync turned off. I don't need my email to refresh every some odd minutes, and having auto sync off extends battery life. However, I would like a quick way to do a 'manual' sync, instead of turning auto sync on, waiting 30 seconds, and turning it off. Ideally, I'd love a 1x1 widget that I could press to do a google sync (gmail, calendar, contacts). Does anyone know of anything?
    Thanks much!

    what about just going into your accounts menu under settings and telling it to refresh?

    could you setup a link or shortcut to do it?

    There is a widget called "Sync All" on my HTC Desire. Is there a way to extract this widget and use it f.e. on your phone?

    I just downloaded the app "Synker" from market.
    It's still in beta but it has a "sync all" widget, much like the HTC stock one, and it seems to work just fine.

    Thats great. Knew it was an older thread, but just wanted to share the info anyways.

    How is Synker working for you so far?
