Sync Google Calendars to Your iPad Calendar App

I don't know what I would do without access to my Google Calendars 24 hours a day/7 days a week. They all sync to my Android phone, my laptops, and even my iPad. There is a little trick that you have to do in order for your Google Calendars to sync with the stock iPad app, though. Follow these simple steps to get syncing. One warning, events edited (not created) from the iPad have been known to not sync well at times (very inconsistent).
