Mark/Space announces Missing Sync v4 for Mac OS X
Mac OS X users will have a unified Hotsync solution for Palm OS based devices. Missing Sync 4.0 replaces all previous versions of Missing Sync, including existing versions for AlphaSmart, Sony Clie, Tapwave Zodiac and the Garmin iQUE 3600.

“When we set out to revitalize Mac-to-Palm synchronization, it was our intention to provide users with three things,” said Brian Hall, Mark/Space CEO,“ compatibility with existing software conduits, cool new features like Wi-Fi synchronization and confidence that a dedicated company with many years of Mac and Palm OS expertise is supporting their needs. We’ve succeeded in providing a solution that will ensure the future of Mac-to-Palm synchronization.”

Perhaps the most critical feature of The Missing Sync for Palm OS is that it supports dozens of existing Palm conduits for the Mac, including Apple’s freely available iSync Palm conduit and Microsoft’s Entourage conduit, offering a seamless experience for users who switch from HotSync Manager.

Conduit Profiles, allows the user to save a group of specific conduits as a set so it can be employed again later. For example, to install an application on the handheld without waiting for other information to synchronize, the user would simply choose the Install Profile and sync. This way, no time is spent running unnecessary conduits.

Other features include Wi-Fi (802.11) network sync, Bluetooth synchronization, desktop mounting of memory cards, iPhoto and iTunes integration, Internet sharing for sending and receiving email or downloading AvantGo content, a streamlined mini-window view, improved install and backup capabilities and SyncMinder, a user-configurable alarm that reminds the user when it’s time to sync.

At the PalmSource Developer Conference in February, PalmSource announced that Palm OS Cobalt (Palm OS 6) would not include Mac synchronization software

Mark/Space says one of the most requested features from conduit developers is the ability to create conduits using modern tools such as Apple’s Xcode. Mark/Space engineers have not only made it possible for conduits to be created with Xcode and compiled as native Mach-O executables, they have also built a framework that allows developers to use Objective-C and Cocoa for conduit development. In addition, existing conduits developed in Metrowerks CodeWarrior are supported using the current PalmSource Conduit Development Kit (CDK) 4.0.3.

Version 4.0 of The Missing Sync for Palm OS is expected to be available from the Mark/Space online store in August and will cost US$39.95 for electronic download, US$49.95 for the CD. This product replaces several existing products that will qualify users for discounted upgrade prices of US$19.95 for electronic download, US$24.95 plus shipping and handling for a CD. Free upgrades will be available for all new users who bought the product since 24 June 2004 until the release version 4.0.
