The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile released
Posted on 30-Jul-2005 10:52 | Tags Filed under: News



Mark/Space, Inc. has released version 2.0 of The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile, a major update to the company's synchronization software that connects Windows Mobile Pocket PC and Smartphone devices to computers running Mac OS X.

This release also marks a name change from The Missing Sync for Pocket PC, reflecting support for a broader range of Windows Mobile devices, including popular smartphones from Audiovox, i-Mate, Motorola, O2, Orange, Samsung and others.

"Though it took longer than we had expected, we're proud to finally be shipping the newest member of The Missing Sync family," said Brian Hall, president and CEO of Mark/Space. "This release delivers the features and device support that users have been asking for as well as a core architecture that makes it easy for third-party developers to bring new Windows Mobile-savvy applications and add-ons to the Mac."

The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile integrates with the new Sync Services technology in Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger", allowing users to synchronize their Address Book and iCal data directly to a Windows Mobile device, resulting in faster, more accurate synchronization. This release also adds sync support for Microsoft's popular Entourage software, employing Microsoft's own synchronization protocol to ensure the best possible user experience.

On the device side, The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile now uses Microsoft's Pocket Outlook Object Model (POOM) to manipulate information, further increasing performance and making it possible to perform "round trip" synchronization from a Windows PC running Outlook to a Windows Mobile device to a Mac and back again. This capability greatly enhances The Missing Sync's appeal for the largest group of users: those who need to sync between both a Mac and a Windows PC.

Other new features include SyncMinder, which reminds the user that it's time to sync; at-a-glance status that shows useful information about a connected device, such as the battery charge level; handheld clock synchronization and user-created profiles that allow groups of sync plugins to be turned on or off. In addition to the standard USB cable/cradle mode, synchronization over Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are also supported.

To help grow the Mac market for Windows Mobile devices, Mark/Space engineers have built The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile around a new plugin architecture that gives third-party developers the ability to create sync plugins for their own Mac and handheld applications. Mark/Space is working with developers to increase the number of Mac-friendly applications that can synchronize information with Windows Mobile devices.
