Mark/Space on Tuesday released The Missing Sync for Sony PSP. The $29.95 utility lets users synchronize movies, photos and music between the Mac and Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP), but goes a step further by offering bookmark synchronization, contact management, calendar sync and more.
The Missing Sync for PSP is a Universal Binary that runs natively on PowerPC and Intel-based Macs. It works when you connect a PSP to your Mac using a USB 2.0 cable, and provides a way for you to back up all your game files and other content on your Mac. It will also remind you when it’s time to synchronize (you can adjust the frequency of the reminders).
The Missing Sync for PSP can convert video files for playback on the PSP; it keeps track of your PSP video library and can also track videos stored on different Memory Stick Pro Duo cards.
“WebSnacks” are snippets of Web sites that you can tell The Missing Sync to download to your PSP — that way, when you’re out of a WiFi hot spot, you can still visit your favorite sites. The software will also synchronize bookmarks between the PSP and Safari.
Missing Sync for the PSP can copy selected iPhoto photo albums, resizing images to fit the PSP’s display; it can also copy selected iTunes playlists (it works with MP3 and unprotected AAC files).
What’s more, The Missing Sync for PSP can also synchronize your Address Book contacts and your iCal calendars on the PSP — it does so by creating Web pages that are stored on the PSP’s Memory Stick card — contact photos, phone numbers and notes are included. You can customize the display of data by selecting themes.
The Missing Sync for PSP includes a Mac application called Mark/Space Notebook. You can use it to store text, URLS, pictures and other data. A plug-in in The Missing Sync for PSP synchronizes that content with the PSP too.
System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.4.6 or later, iTunes 5 or later, iPhoto 5 or later, and a Sony PSP with a Memory Stick Pro Duo card and firmware 2.7.1 or later, connected to the Mac using a USB cable.
