The Missing Sync for iPhone 2.0 adds two-way sync

Missing Sync for iPhone 2

Mark/Space has launched v2.0 of The Missing Sync for iPhone, a companion utility for iPhones and iPod touches. The software supplements iTunes by syncing notes, tasks and various documents with an Apple handheld. New in the v2.0 update is support for two-way sync over Wi-Fi; changes created on an iPhone or Touch are automatically carried over during the remote sync process.

The technology is based on the latest releases of Fliq Notes and Fliq Docs at the App Store, although they have yet to be joined by an updated Fliq Tasks. Note sync supports Yojimbo, Entourage and Mark/Space's bundled Notebook; document sync handles formats such as Word and PDF files, as well as miscellaneous media types. Task sync shuttles information between iCal and Fliq Tasks.

The Missing Sync for iPhone 2.0 costs $40 new, but is a free update for owners of v1.x, or $30 for users "crossgrading" from another Mark/Space title. Macs must be running a minimum of Mac OS X 10.4.11 or 10.5.6, while iPhones and Touches must be running the v2.1 firmware. Fliq Tasks 2.0 is expected to be available "soon."

    This product is heavy on price, light on the reason for its existence. The new iPhone/iPod touch firmware will probably sync notes and tasks, anyway.

    My experience with Missing Sync products has been less than positive. Every now and again it complains about sync conflicts between identical records. And Mark/Space support is not very friendly. I'd steer well clear of this one.

    I used the Palm version after Palm decided to drop active Mac support and direct syncing.

    I had to be extremely careful not to end up with endless duplicates. or if i edited something, it would often keep both the original and edited versions. Yeah, real handy.

    I also used it to sync my girlfriend's Palm. In addition to her sometimes ending up with 3, 4, 5 or MORE copies of some events and contacts, it would often dump some of my contacts and calendar events into her user info. It was pretty annoying for her!

    I don't see the point of this. After about a month of having an iPod touch (and abandoning the Palm after 12 years!), I can say that syncing is completely pain free!
