Google provides a broad range of options for connecting mobile devices to Google Apps.  There are options for iOS devices (iPhone, iPad), Android phones and tablets, Windows Mobile devices, and Blackberry devices. University Technology will support iOS, Android, and Windows Mobile, and will offer best effort support for BlackBerry.  

Faculty and staff users who are required to receive email on a mobile device for work purposes should follow the procedures in the stipend request form.  All faculty and staff also have the option of using their personal devices to send and receive Drew email.

Before you begin

1. Sign into your Drew Google account on the web.

2. Be sure to accept the Google Terms of Service and complete the "capcha."  

The license agreement for using Google Apps is only available on the web, so before you set the account up on a mobile device, you will need to access your Drew Google account on the web. 

iOS (iPhone, iPad)

To configure your iPhone or iPad, please follow the instructions available at Google Support.  Please note that you access Google similarly to how you used to access the Drew Mobility Server, by using the "Microsoft Exchange" server type on your phone. [We need to add something here about why users should NOT use the Gmail option on the list of available Account options]  Please also note that although Google has disabled this support for gmail.com accounts it remains available for Google Apps accounts.

Android: (most Samsung, HTC, Motorola smart phones, Android tablets)

Android phones have native support for Google Services built in.  To configure your Android device follow the instructions at Google Support.  You can have multiple Google accounts on your phone and it will show both sets contacts and calendars (calendars from different accounts have different colors by default).  Most [do we need to be more specific here? ] Google apps on the device allow you to switch which account is active or switch between accounts interactively.

Windows Phone:

Google also supports Google Sync for Windows phones.  Click here for instructions.
