Mark/Space Announces Revolutionary Wireless Syncing Capabilities for BlackBerry and Mac
New Bluetooth sync, automatic wireless syncing and iTunes playlist support
Los Gatos, CA - February 9, 2009 - Mark/Space, creator of award-winning synchronization software, has announced the release of The Missing Sync for BlackBerry, version 2.0, featuring wireless syncing via Bluetooth and Proximity Sync(tm), a revolutionary new way to automatically and wirelessly sync contacts, calendars, music, photos, notes and more.
Now BlackBerry and Mac users can ditch those pesky cables and sync reliably via Bluetooth. Even better, Proximity Sync technology from Mark/Space uses the same Bluetooth capabilities to give users the option to automatically sync whenever the Mac and BlackBerry are near one another.
Syncing without thinking has arrived. Remembering to sync is a thing of the past because Proximity Sync does it automatically, every time.
"This is the first sync software for BlackBerry and Mac that features the convenience of automatic wireless synchronization with Proximity Sync," said Brian Hall, CEO of Mark/Space. "When the BlackBerry and Mac are within range, sync happens, even while you're using your phone or working on your computer."
For example, a photo taken on the BlackBerry will automatically sync to iPhoto on the Mac, and a new contact entered on the BlackBerry will automatically sync to Address Book the next time the two devices are near one another. Do away with digging out and hooking up messy USB cables or having to remember to manually synchronize.
"BlackBerry users," Hall said, "are telling us this is the breakthrough they have been waiting for in BlackBerry to Mac synchronization."
The Missing Sync for BlackBerry, version 2.0 offers more new and cool features than ever before, including playlist support for iTunes, sync for other media files and video transfer to and from the BlackBerry. Plus, users can archive text messages and call histories to their Mac where they can do more with them like using the call log to track time for billing purposes and the SMS log to transfer information like phone numbers into Address Book.
Version 2.0 of The Missing Sync for BlackBerry includes these new features, plus all of the benefits that BlackBerry users already rely on in version 1.0.
