Salling Media Sync 1.1
Salling has released a v1.1 update for Salling Media Sync, its Mac phone utility. The software syncs music, podcasts and playlists with normally unsupported devices, from makers such as Nokia, HTC and Sony Ericsson. New in v1.1 is support for the Palm Pre, which may be crucial for some owners due to the breaking of native sync functions in iTunes 8.2.1.
Also present is support for the BlackBerry Bold and Storm, and the ability to sync photos, taken either from Aperture or iPhoto. The app requires Mac OS X 10.4.11, and will only sync images from Aperture 2.x or iPhoto '08/'09. A fully-functional version of the program is free, but a $22 license is required to enable maximum sync speed.
