Apple® today announced the release of iSync 1.1, Apple’s breakthrough synchronization software that lets users automatically sync their contacts and calendars on their Mac® with those on their cell phones, Palm OS devices and iPods. iSync 1.1 adds support for over 20 mobile phones from Nokia, Motorola, Sony Ericsson and Siemens, as well as Mac-to-Mac synchronization of Safari™ bookmarks for .Mac subscribers. iSync 1.1 supports more Bluetooth-enabled phones than any other syncing software and has added syncing via USB for several Motorola phones.
“Mobile phones are a part of everyday life for millions of us, and iSync 1.1 now lets us easily take our contacts and calendars everywhere we go, right on our mobile phone,” said Sina Tamaddon, Apple’s senior vice president of Applications. “iSync 1.1 brings Apple’s incredible sync technology to over 90 percent of the U.S. wireless market.”
“iSync 1.1’s support for Series 60-based smart phones, such as the Nokia 3650 and Nokia 7650, demonstrates seamless interaction between the mobile phone and the personal computer at its best. The Series 60 Platform is built on open standards and technologies, thus the industry-leading companies, such as Apple, can easily and conveniently develop and offer advanced applications like personal information management (PIM) to the users of Series 60-based devices,” said Mika Saravirta, director, Nokia Mobile Software.
In addition to Safari bookmark syncing, .Mac members can now access and organize their favorite websites from any Mac and with the ability to sync Mac® OS X Address Book contacts, Mac.com email, iCal™ calendar events and To Do lists, .Mac members always have their most important information at their fingertips. iSync 1.1 is available immediately as a free download and requires Mac OS X version 10.2.5 and iCal 1.0.2.
