Mark/Space (http://www.markspace.com) has updated their all-in-one Android PIM and media synchronization software, The Missing Sync for Android. Version 1.5 brings phone-to-desktop calendar synchronization to Android phones. The upgrade adds full support of synchronization over fast and secure USB cable connections and increasing the overall performance of media sync.
The Missing Sync for Android software is available for Windows PC and Mac computers and supports phones running Android OS, such as the Google Nexus One, Verizon Motorola Droid and HTC Droid Incredible.
The calendar app included on Android-powered phones syncs with Google Calendar. To sync with a Mac or Windows PC, Mark/Space had to develop their own Android calendar app. Fliq Calendar is their full-featured calendaring app designed especially to synchronize with calendars from Outlook and iCal. Fliq Calendar works with The Missing Sync to keep calendar events updated and in sync between a phone and computer.
In addition to calendar syncing, The Missing Sync for Android synchronizes contacts, notes, documents and media files wirelessly between an Android phone and applications Mac and Windows users already use, such as Microsoft Outlook, Mac OS X Address Book, Windows Media Player and iTunes. Other features in The Missing Sync include a built-in ringtone editor (to create ringtones from music), and archiving of text messages and a phone’s call history.
Mark/Space Proximity Sync keeps a computer and phone in sync wirelessly and automatically. Sync happens over a Wi-Fi network or via Bluetooth whenever the phone is near the computer. Proximity Sync works even when the phone is in a bag, backpack, or pants pocket. The Missing Sync for Android is available as an electronic download from the Mark/Space online store for US$39.95. Customers who own any version of The Missing Sync can purchase a crossgrade to The Missing Sync for Android for $29.95. The Missing Sync for Android is also available in a Business Edition bundle that includes premium support services for $89.95. Fliq Calendar and Fliq Notes are available free from the Android Market.
Support of syncing features may vary depending on Android phone model and Android OS. Read about device and OS requirements for specific features of The Missing Sync for Android at www.markspace.com/android .
