Is there an easy way to get the iSync software on Snow Leopard (verson 3.1.0) auto sync every x minutes?

I've set it up to sync with Google contacts (in Gmail), but I'd like it to run automatically in the background.

You can set an Apple script to automatically tell iSync to sync.

tell application "iSync"

    if not syncing then
    	synchronize
    	repeat while syncing
    		delay 1
    	end repeat
    	quit
    end if

end tell

Set it to run at period intervals using Automator workflows.

That opens iSync, is there a way to do it in the background? –  Coffee Cup Sep 13 '09 at 4:45
