The Missing Sync updates

Mark/Space has released The Missing Sync beta for the Palm Pre, along with a Windows version for the iPhone firmware 2.0. The company has also prepared its Fliq iPhone apps for the firmware 3.0 update and the 3G S handset. The Missing Sync for the Pre allows users to sync data, such as iCal or Entourage, between a Mac and the smartphone. The service also works when the Pre is placed on the Touchstone charger.

Users can also transfer bookmarks, ringtones, videos or images to the handset using a USB cable. Videos are automatically reformatted to the optimum resolution for viewing on the mobile device. The software provides options to transfer music and podcasts, along with iTunes playlists. The Pre also enables viewing of document formats such as Word, Excel or PDFs.

The Missing Sync for Windows allows users to sync data between XP or Vista and an iPhone or iPod touch running the version 2.0 firmware. The software automatically recognizes changes on either device, then updates the information via Wi-Fi.

Along with the new sync software, Mark/Space has already prepared its Fliq-series iPhone apps for compatibility with the firmware version 3.0 and the new iPhone 3G S. The updated apps include Fliq, Fliq Notes, Fliq Tasks and Fliq Docs.

The Missing Sync for the Palm Pre requires Mac OS X 10.5.6 or higher and is available as a fully-functional free download, while the release version will carry a price of $40. The Missing Sync for iPhone 2.0 firmware can be purchased with a singer-user license for $40, a three-seat pack for $70, a two-seat business license for $90, or bundled with Fliq for $50.
