Sync When Available option syncs mobile macs
Econ Technologies has launched updates to its file-sync software titles, ChronoSync 4.2 and ChronoAgent for Mac 1.2.

Radium works well, GoodSync limited by PC origins
MacNN has reviewed Radium, a mac radio player, along with the back-up and file sync software, GoodSync. Radium streams from a list of thousands of stations, including Sirius/XM content, international stations and subscription services. Playback takes up little space on the screen -- a Now Playing and stations available listing is available via a drop-down window on the Mac's Status Bar.
Sync files via iTunes
Ecamm Network has launched PadSync, a new application that provides file-synchronizing between both a Mac and iPad. Programs such as Pages, GoodReader, Numbers, and Keynote can be used to share files with the Mac, and do so via the iTunes file sharing feature. The PadSync works by mirroring files on the iPad and sending them to any Mac connected through a USB cable. Features include drag-and-drop support for files, and automatic file-sharing capabilities.
Service: mobile, 3rd party apps, developer support
Internet storage and file synchronization provider Dropbox has announced a new service, Dropbox Anywhere. The service aims to equip third-party apps for iPhone, iPad, Android and BlackBerry -- arriving later in the Summer -- with the new Dropbox mobile API. The new API will enable developers to create apps that can access the contents of users' Dropbox accounts and keep the data in sync across multiple devices.
Synchronize! Pro X 6.0
Qdea on Saturday released Synchronize! Pro X 6.0, a major upgrade to its Mac OS X system backup and file synchronization utility. Version 6.0 brings three new features: "Fast scan", which uses FSEvents technology in Leopard to dramatically speed up the time it takes to update a backup. According to the company, the folder scan time for a typical update to a "Bootable System Backup" of Leopard is under a minute, compared to over 10 minutes without "Fast scan". The update also brings "Folder Watch", which tracks changes to the contents of a folder to trigger a backup. Two different folders on directly-mounted disks (does not work with remote disks) can be monitored, and a backup or synchronization can be started when changes occur to the contents of the folders.
