Mark Space Ships Major Update To Missing Sync for Windows Mobile

Mark/Space has shipped version 3.0 of The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile adding support for syncing of files, notes, photos, music and podcasts.

Version 3.0 adds several new important features for
users, including synchronization of notes and voice memos, Word and
Excel documents, Safari bookmarks, iPhoto albums and iTunes

The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile is the only Mac sync product that
supports Windows Mobile 5 devices, including HP iPAQs, the HTC TyTN,
Motorola Q, Palm Treo 700w/wx, the new T-Mobile Dash and many others.
The Missing Sync also supports devices running Windows Mobile 2002 and
2003, allowing Mac users with any of these products to connect and
synchronize personal information, such as contacts, calendar events,
tasks and notes.

“With this update to The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile, we focused
on delivering new features to users, while keeping pace with the
latest innovations and rapid delivery of cutting edge devices from
vendors such as HP and HTC,”
said Brian Hall, Mark/Space president
and CEO. “From notes and file syncing to much-improved iPhoto
integration, there’s something in version 3.0 for everyone. Windows
Mobile devices are capable of so many things, and The Missing Sync
gives Mac users easy access to those powerful capabilities.”

One of the most asked-for features in version 3.0 is synchronization
of notes. Since Mac OS X doesn’t include a full-featured application
for creating, categorizing and searching through notes, The Missing
Sync includes Mark/Space Notebook, a powerful helper program, for
free. Mark/Space Notebook includes notes categorization, Spotlight
searching, support for pictures and even voice memo syncing. Notes
can also be synchronized with Microsoft Entourage 2004.

Also new in The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile v3.0 is file and
folder synchronization, which lets users setup folders and files to
keep in sync between their Mac and mobile device. Imagine sharing
important Word and Excel files with your Pocket PC device; editing
them on the go; then having them update on your Mac and Pocket PC
automatically, all with the touch of a button. With this
functionality, the Missing Sync essentially provides a digital
briefcase capability for mobile device users.

To leverage the multimedia capabilities of Windows Mobile devices,
this update introduces plugins that synchronize directly with iPhoto
and iTunes. Users select iPhoto albums to send to the device, and The
Missing Sync automatically resizes them for optimal viewing and
downloads them to the device. Photos from camera-enabled devices can
be imported directly into an iPhoto album or into a folder on the
Mac. Similarly, selected iTunes playlists can be downloaded to the
device. While Windows Mobile devices can’t play protected AAC audio
files, such as those purchased from the iTunes Music Store, they will
play podcasts and unprotected music, so users will always have
something available for listening.
