FoneLink 2.0 released
nova media says it has released FoneLink 2.0, a radically altered version of its original phone sync software. The app is said to have been rewritten from scratch, and uses drag-and-drop commands throughout its new interface, which also presents an activity monitor for active and cued transfers. More criticial is the inclusion of built-in support for Apple's Sync Services, which lets users copy information from iCal, Entourage and Address Book, among other programs.
Other features of the software include a Bluetooth pairing assistant, data backup, and the automatic conversion of music, photos and video to appropriate formats; this includes the creation of ringtones, and the copying of iTunes playlists. Version 2.0 requires Mac OS X 10.4.9 or later, and is free as an update or $34 new.
