Mark/Space Inc. announced Tuesday the forthcoming release of
Missing Sync for Windows Mobile, an update coming this June that will replace its Missing Sync for Pocket PC product. The software lets Macintosh computers synchronize data with Pocket PCs and Windows Mobile Smartphones, including the Audiovox SMT5600, Orange SPVC C500,, i-Mate SP3i and Motorola MPx220.
New features coming in this release include synchronization with Microsoft Entourage, “SyncMinder,” which will remind you when it’s time to sync, status information about the connected device, handheld clock sync, user-created profiles that let you turn off specific features, and more. Under the hood, the software uses a new plug-in architecture that will let developers create plug-ins for their own applications. The new release also uses Microsoft’s Pocket Outlook Object Model (POOM) to to manipulate data on the handheld with increased efficiency and accuracy, according to Mark/Space.
The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile is expected to be released this June for US$39.95. Upgrades from Missing Sync for Pocket PC will cost US$19.95; upgrades for copies of the software released since April 1, 2005 will be free.
Updated 04/05/05 5:10 PM: Due to an error in the original press release, it was incorrectly reported that POOM is used by Windows ActiveSync. The article has be changed accordingly.
