Mark/Space ships The Missing Sync for BlackBerry
Synchronization utility software-maker Mark/Space on Tuesday began shipping The Missing Sync for BlackBerry, the newest tool in the company’s product line. The application provides synchronization of contacts, calendar events, tasks, memos, and for multimedia-capable BlackBerry devices, photos, podcasts and music.
The Missing Sync for Blackberry will sync between a Blackberry with a USB port and a Mac running Mac OS X 10.4.
The Missing Sync for BlackBerry supports Apple’s Sync Services technology, so information can be synchronized with Address Book and iCal, as well as with other Sync Services-savvy applications, including Microsoft Entourage 2004, Chronos’ SOHO Organizer, Bare Bones Software’s Yojimbo and Mark/Space Notebook, an application for creating, categorizing and searching memos that the company includes for free.
The application will synchronize photos between the handheld and iPhoto, or even a folder on the Mac’s hard drive, according to the company. Photos are resized for optimal viewing on the device, so they load quickly and take up less storage space. Unprotected songs from iTunes can also be transfered by selecting playlists in the application’s preferences.
The Missing Sync for BlackBerry is available as an immediate electronic download from the Mark/Space Online Store for $39.95. Currently available in English, a forthcoming update will add French and German language versions.
