Can you get an Android phone to use iCloud for contacts and calendar?

Say you have both iPhone and Android phones. I know you can set the iPhone to use your Google contacts and calendar and it works fine. But Apple seems to offer better privacy controls so I would like to change both phones to use iCloud. Thanks

you may be able to set this with [contactssyncforgmail.com]

it's a very good app, but I'm on Android only so I can't definitely say. But I think so.

I had some luck for a couple of years with the Android apps SmoothSync for Cloud Calendar, and SmoothSync for Cloud Contacts.

The calendar one is still working, but I moved contacts to Google and am still fiddling with it. I'd like to move everything to Google contacts and calendar. I think.

To use SmoothSync, you have to log into your apple.com ID account and request a special password for each of the two SmoothSync apps.

Apple issues these special passwords so that external apps won't be using, and exposing, your Apple password. That's how I understand it. Your Apple iCloud password itself won't work with these syncs.

Nothing in the SmoothSync directions explains this, as I recall. Now you know.
