The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile Version 4.0 Gains Support for Windows
Mobile 6 Devices, Adds Video, Call Log and SMS Sync
LOS GATOS, Calif.–July 31, 2007–Mark/Space, Inc. today announced the
immediate availability of version 4.0 of The Missing Sync for Windows
Mobile, the company’s popular synchronization application that connects
smartphones and mobile devices running Microsoft’s Windows Mobile operating
system to Apple Mac computers. Along with a number of new features that
include video encoding for mobile playback, the 4.0 release becomes the
first Mac synchronization software to support devices running Windows
“For more than a year now, The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile has been
widely regarded as the best way to connect Windows Mobile 5 devices to Mac
OS X, allowing users to synchronize everything from contacts and calendars
to Microsoft Office files and iTunes podcasts,” said Brian Hall, Mark/Space
president and CEO. “Now, with the release of version 4.0, we’re providing
support for the very latest devices running Windows Mobile 6 Professional,
Standard and Classic, including the HTC Touch, Motorola Q9 and upgraded
Samsung Blackjack, giving Mac users complete freedom in their choice of
NEW FEATURES IN VERSION 4.0
In addition to support for new and upgraded devices running Windows Mobile
6, The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile gains several new features with the
A new Video plugin supports importing videos taken with the built-in camera
present on many Windows Mobile devices. These videos can be imported
directly into an iPhoto album or into a folder of the user’s choosing
anywhere on their Mac. This feature includes the option to delete
successfully imported movies from the device, freeing up storage space for
The Video plugin also provides encoding and mobile playback capabilities,
which give users the option to easily encode DRM-free QuickTime video from
the Mac and download it to their Windows Mobile device for playback while
on the go. A simple drag and drop begins the encoding and download process.
A player with support for MP4 video, such as Windows Media Player Mobile
10, is required for mobile video playback.
A new Call Log plugin and matching Call Log application for Mac OS X
provide access to the log of phone calls made and received with
phone-enabled Windows Mobile devices. During each sync operation, the Call
Log plugin reads the call log stored on the device and copies its data to
the Mac. The included Call Log app on the Mac can then be used to sort,
filter, annotate and search through the list of calls and view call dates
and durations. Integration with Apple’s Address Book application provides
additional information related to known contacts, including company name
and contact photo, while a toolbar button expedites the process of creating
a new contact in Address Book from call log data. An export function
provides the ability to use Excel or a database application to further
manipulate the data, a useful feature for attorneys or other professionals
who track and bill for their time.
Version 4.0 of The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile also includes a new SMS
Log plugin and matching SMS Log application for Mac OS X. Working in
combination, these components provide access to the device’s log of sent
and received SMS text messages. Messages are grouped by contact and easily
searched using Apple’s Spotlight technology. Like the Call Log application,
the SMS Log application also integrates with Apple’s Address Book app to
gather information for known contacts. This feature not only provides a
backup for often-critical communications sent to or from a mobile device,
but it also allows users to access that information with their Mac.
