Mark/Space Gets More Mac Friendly With Launch of New Store

By: Christopher Meinck

LOS GATOS, Calif.–February 24, 2005–Mark/Space, Inc., creator of The Missing Sync family of products, is now selling the top third-party applications for Palm OS and Windows Mobile/Pocket PC handheld devices in their online store. The Mark/Space Online Store is unique in its pure focus on providing applications from Mac-friendly developers.

"Mac users now have a place to shop for handheld software applications where they aren’t forced to wade through a sea of products that don’t support the Mac," said Eric Ullman, Mark/Space’s director of sales and marketing. "We’ve compiled a great selection of the most popular applications for both Palm Powered and Windows Mobile devices to start, and we plan to grow that selection to become the favorite one-stop handheld software shop for Mac users." Brian Hall, Mark/Space’s president and CEO, explained that this move is all part of the company’s plan to grow the Mac side of the market for PDAs and smartphones. "Traditionally, Mac users are early technology adopters, and they have been a cornerstone of the handheld market. Sadly, we’ve seen a drop in industry support for Mac users over the past few years. We’re working hard to reverse that trend, and we’re doing it with the help of our allies represented in the Mark/Space Online Store."

All of the applications sold in the Mark/Space Online Store, including those for Windows Mobile devices, can be installed from a Mac. Currently, Mark/Space is offering long-time Mac favorites, including DataViz’s Documents to Go, LandWare’s Pocket Quicken, Llamagraphics Life Balance and SplashData’s SplashPhoto.

"We are thrilled to be part of the Mark/Space Online Store, as DataViz has been committed to the Macintosh platform for the last 21 years," said Annya Sedakova-Bertram, DataViz. "The store offers a convenient and tailored shopping experience for any Mac user looking for mobile software." John Chaffee, president of SplashData, remarked: "We’re pleased to have SplashData’s apps available in the new Mark/Space Online Store. SplashData and Mark/Space share a common commitment to providing Mac enthusiasts with handheld and desktop software designed exclusively for Mac. Given Mark/Space’s large installed base of loyal Mac users, it’s an ideal distribution channel for us."
