Mark/Space on Monday announced the release of The Missing Sync for BlackBerry 2.0, a new release of its data synchronization software for Mac users who depend on Research In Motion's (RIM) BlackBerry smartphones. It costs $39.95; upgrades from the 1.x version are available.
The Missing Sync for BlackBerry lets you synchronize contact and calendar data, including tasks, with BlackBerry devices using iCal, Address Book or Entourage. It also syncs with iPhoto and synchronizes notes and memos.
New to the 2.0 release is support for Bluetooth data synchronization. This, combined with Proximity Sync technology in The Missing Sync, enables you to wirelessly synchronize data between your Mac and BlackBerry device automatically, as long as they're within range of each other.
iTunes media and playlist synchronization is also new, along with text message and call history archiving. Video syncing has also been added; you can drag and drop videos onto the Missing Sync to encode and transfer them to your BlackBerry, or transfer videos on your BlackBerry back to your Mac.
System requirements call for Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later, iTunes 6.0 or later for iTunes syncing; iPhoto 5.0 or later for photo syncing. A list of compatible BlackBerry devices is available from Mark/Space's Web site.
