SyncMate 2.0 released
Eltima has released SyncMate 2.0, used to synchronize data between Macs, Windows Mobile devices and other smartphones. The new version enables sync with Google, remote servers, other Macs and Nokia Series 40 phones. Version 2.0 also includes new plug-in features, such as ones for iTunes videos and Stickies. A new interface attempts to simplify navigation, and several bugs from the previous version have been fixed.
Windows Mobile devices can connect to a Mac via USB or Wi-Fi, while Nokia phones have the option of Bluetooth. Multiple Macs can be linked using an Ethernet cable.
SyncMate is offered in two versions, the first of which is free. This supports an action log, an SMS reader, device info and contact and calendar sync. The Expert edition expands sync to involve iPhoto, iTunes, bookmarks, folders, notes and time, as well as online backup. Both versions of the app can be downloaded from the Eltima website; Expert costs $40.
