BlackBerry for Mac preview
Mark/Space today released a public preview of The Missing Sync for BlackBerry, with the final version expected at the end of the quarter. The Missing Sync for BlackBerry synchronizes contacts, calendar events, tasks and notes between a Mac running Mac OS X 10.4.8 or later and a USB-capable BlackBerry handset running version 4.0 or later of the BlackBerry operating system. Owners of BlackBerry Pearl or the new 8800 series handsets can leverage The Missing Sync's iPhoto album and iTunes playlist syncing (for unprotected audio files). "The Missing Sync for BlackBerry really brings out the multimedia capabilities of these devices," the company said. The software syncs contacts with Apple's Address Book and any BlackBerry hands and calendar events and tasks from iCal.
In addition, it includes the Mac application called Mark/Space Notebook, which allows users to create, edit, categorize, sort and search notes on ant Mac, then sync them with a BlackBerry handset. With support for Sync Services, Mark/Space Notebook keeps your notes current across multiple computers with Mark/Space's own SyncTogether product or via dot Mac syncing. Users can also choose to synchronize BlackBerry's notes with Microsoft Entourage or Yojimbo, the information organizer from Bare Bones, makers of BBEdit.
The public preview is available now with a final version expected to ship by the end of March.
