Zapptek on Friday released a new version of iPDA, its software that helps the iPod become more of a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA). iPDA 4.0 costs $19.95, with upgrades from version 3 priced at $10. A trial version is available for download.
iTunes already lets you synchronize calendar and contact information with your iPod. iPDA extends that to enable you to sync Word, PDF, Apple Pages, RTF or text documents on your iPod, as well.
Version 4.0 features “Leopard-specific” syncing with Mail, iCal and Address Book, including Mail Notes and To Do’s. The user interface has been updated, as well.
Now you can download RSS feeds, download news articles and read them offline, subscribe to published iCals and download them directly, download driving directions and perform a file backup to the iPod.
System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.3 or later and an iPod. Entourage is also supported.
