Missing Sync for Pre 1.0 released
Mark/Space has released The Missing Sync for Palm Pre 1.0, software to enable the Mac to sync data with Palm’s Pre smartphone. It costs $40.
The Missing Sync for Palm Pre enables Pre users to transfer music, ringtones, photos, contact information, calendar data and other content between the Mac and the Palm Pre. The software works with Address Book, Entourage, iCal, iTunes, iPhoto and other familiar software.
Included is “Proximity Sync” technology that enables the two device to synchronize data over Wi-Fi, so you don’t need to physically tether the Pre to the Mac using USB to make the exchange happen. You can customize what data gets synced, and you can also convert video to be played on the Pre.
This marks the official release of the software — it was previously offered as a public beta. One feature added since the beta version’s debut is an integrated ringtone editor, which lets you convert non-DRM-encrypted music to a custom ringtone for your Pre.
System requirements call for Mac OS X 10.5.6 or later, iTunes 7.4 or higher, iTunes 5.0 or later, and a Palm Pre running ROM 1.0.2 or later.
