Mark/Space has released version 1.2 of The Missing Sync for Palm Pre (http://www.markspace.com/PalmPre). The app lets you synchronize contacts, calendars, music, ringtones, photos and more between a Mac and the new Palm Pre phone. Version 1.2 ow synchronizes notes and tasks between a webOS phone, such as Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus, and a Windows PC or Mac computer.
Mark/Space CEO Brian Hall says The Missing Sync for Palm Pre works with the applications Mac owners already know and use: Address Book, Entourage, iCal, iTunes, iPhoto and others. Mark/Space Proximity Sync technology can sync a Mac with a Pre via Wi-Fi – sync happens automatically and wirelessly whenever the Pre is near the Mac. It works even when Pre is in a backpack or pants pocket.
You can choose the groups of contacts and calendars you want on your Pre. Synchronized contacts and calendars work with Palm Synergy so that contacts from Address Book and Microsoft Entourage can be viewed on a Pre in a single list that links them with contacts from Google and Facebook. Calendars from iCal can be viewed, layered together in a single view with other calendars.
The Missing Sync works with iTunes and iPhoto making to transfer and sync favorite photo albums and playlists of music and podcasts — both audio and video. Plus, The Missing Sync converts and transfers digital video and home movies optimized for the best viewing experience on Pre, says Hall. You don’t have to manually drag music, video or picture files to your phone.
You can customize Pre with ringtones created in GarageBand or other ringtone editing software. The Missing Sync will transfer them from iTunes to your Pre. You can view Microsoft Office documents and PDFs on your phone. The Missing Sync c synchronizes folders of files — like Microsoft Excel, Word and PowerPoint documents — from the Mac to the Pre. Safari bookmarks become Pre bookmarks too. You can transfer bookmarks from a Mac. View them in the Mark/Space MyBookmarks app, and transfer favorites to the Pre Web app.
The Missing Sync for Palm Pre for Mac is available as an electronic download from the Mark/Space web site. It can be purchased for US$39.95 from the Mark/Space Online Store. Version 1.2 is a free upgrade for registered users. Owners of any Mark/Space product can crossgrade to the 1.0 release version of The Missing Sync for Palm Pre for $29.95.
