Beta allows sync over WiFi, USB, Bluetooth

Eltima has launched a beta of its new SyncMate software, featuring direct sync for Android phones. The software already syncs Macs with Windows Mobile and Nokia S40 phones, and offered a workaround using Google accounts for Android users. Version 3 offers direct Android to Mac syncing, with mounting in the finder for a full view of the phone's content, over WiFi, USB and Bluetooth. Sync with a Google account is still included in v3 as an option. The software can also sync with other Macs, PCs, Sony PSPs and USB flash drives.

The beta allows Android users to sync contacts, calendar, music, images, videos and folders and lets users manage SMS messages. iPhone sync is not yet available but is promised in the near future. The software is offered in a Free Edition, which syncs iCal and Address Book accounts with supported devices, and an Expert Edition, which adds iTunes, iPhoto, Mail, Notes and other options.

The SyncMate beta 3 works with Mac OS X 10.5 and both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of OS X 10.6. It works with numerous versions of Windows Mobile and syncs Android 1.6 and 2.1. The beta is free until the final release, when the expert edition will cost $40 for a 2-license set-up or $60 for a six-Mac family license.
