Information Appliance Associates, creators of industry-leading mobile
sync solutions, announces the release of the PocketMac for iPhone, a
Mac tool that gives iPhone users new options for syncing. Now iPhone
users can sync data from three of the major personal information
managers: Entourage, Meeting Maker, and Lotus Notes, says Terence
Goggin, chief technical officer of Information Appliance Associates
The new tool offers sync options for users of Entourage, Meeting
Maker and Lotus Notes, such as category selection. Users can sync
contacts and calendars from any of these three applications and
select only the categories of their data they’d like synced.
Additionally, PocketMac for iPhone acts as a backup agent, ensuring
that every time a user syncs their iPhone to iTunes, PocketMac for
iPhone backups both their call log and all of their SMS text
messages. Backup can occur on the user’s local Mac or their Mobile Me
server. The software includes a BackupViewer application that allows
the user to review the call logs and text messages or export them to
a text file. Also, if an iPhone user is a regular 411 user, she can
have the information texted to her iPhone; with the BackupViewer, the
user can now add the contact data in those texts to their Address
Book with one click.
PocketMac for iPhone works on Mac OS X 10.5 (“Leopard”) and retails
for US$29.95. PocketMac for iPhone supports all models of iPhone.
