TransMedia today officially launched its Glide Sync and Glide Mobile services for Mac users. The services allow Mac users to access, edit and share virtually all of their files stored on their Macs from a wide selection of cell phones, including those from Blackberry (8100, 8700, 8800), Cingular (8125), HP (iPAQ, hw6510), Motorola (Razr V3, SLVR, ROKR, Q), Nokia (9300, E62, 6102i, 6682), Palm (650, 680, 700P, 700W, 750, LifeDrive), Samsung (Blackjack, A707, D807), Sony Ericsson (w600i, w810i), and TMobile (SDA, SideKick). Glide automatically syncs photos, music, videos, documents, iCal calendars, Mac Address Book contacts, and Safari, Camino and Firefox bookmarks from any Mac via the Internet--to and from Glide's hosted web services. Glide's compatibility engine then serves up your files in the proper format and bit rate for access on various devices and for easy sharing, provideing a single unified file and information management system and productivity suite for all devices.
In addition, Glide's mobile applications enable Mac users to create while on the go. Users can compose a document on a mobile device, save it and then access and edit it later on a Mac--without the need to email it from the mobile device. Users also can edit photos with 75 photo manipulation tools and order prints all on a mobile device or Mac.
The company says that the service allows Mac users to send large files in 5k emails using a .Mac email address with no attachment limits and without filling up the recipient's inbox as well as create elegant multimedia websites from a cell phone or Mac and edit later from either device.
