Mark/Spaced The Missing Sync Now Supporting Windows Mobile 5.0 Devices
Mark/Space, Inc. has released an update to its popular synchronization software for Mac OS X, The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile. The new 2.5 release runs natively on Intel and PowerPC Macs alike and adds support for smartphones and Pocket PCs that run Microsoft's Windows Mobile 5 operating system, including models from Dell, HP, HTC, i-mate, Palm, Motorola and Samsung.

The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile provides connectivity and synchronization capabilities for Mac users with handheld devices running Pocket PC OS 2002, Windows Mobile 2003 or Windows Mobile 5.

The company says Windows Mobile 5 devices, which began shipping at the end of last year, posed a problem for existing synchronization products, because significant changes were made to how these devices establish secure connections and sync with personal computers.

In addition to adding support for the latest devices, this release improves synchronization of contacts, calendar events and tasks with Apple's Address Book and iCal applications, as well as with Microsoft Entourage 2004. Version 2.5 also introduces a toolbar that provides quick access to the most used commands and a customizable, drag-and-drop install feature that recognizes certain file types, such as music, pictures and video, and puts them in the proper place on the device.

The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile employs Apple's Sync Services technology, introduced in Mac OS X 10.4, which allows third-party applications to sync information with a central database. Users of Chronos SOHO Organizer, Market Circle Daylite and other Sync Services-savvy applications can sync information back and forth from these apps to Windows Mobile devices via The Missing Sync, allowing flexibility when it comes to choosing a desktop information management application.

To further the company's goal of expanding the Windows Mobile platform's connectivity options with the Mac, Mark/Space has built a capable plugin architecture into The Missing Sync, which gives third-party developers the ability to connect Mac applications with programs running on Windows Mobile devices. For example, it's possible to create a plugin that synchronizes monetary transactions between a financial management application on the Mac and expense software on the device. Mark/Space hopes to see new plugins developed that expand the usefulness of these devices specifically for Mac users.

The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile sells for US$39.95 as an electronic download or US$49.95 on CD. Upgrades from version 2.0 are free for registered owners, while upgrades from older versions or other eligible products are available for US$19.95 in electronic download format.
