Mark/Space Announces the Missing Sync for iPhone

Offers Migration From Palm OS, Windows Mobile and BlackBerry Smartphones; Features Desktop Archive, Browse and Search of iPhone Call Log, SMS and Notes

LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwire - September 24, 2007) - Mark/Space, Inc. today announced the latest addition to the company's highly rated Missing Sync family of synchronization products for Mac OS X: The Missing Sync™ for iPhone™. Expected to ship in the fourth quarter 2007, The Missing Sync for iPhone will provide data migration of contacts, tasks, events and photos from Palm OS, Windows Mobile and BlackBerry smartphones, as well as the ability to archive, browse and search iPhone Call Log, SMS text messages and Notes.

"Apple has made a powerful entry into the market with the iPhone," said Brian Hall, Mark/Space president and CEO. "Prospective iPhone customers want to know that they can take their existing smartphone data with them, and Missing Sync for iPhone is designed to meet that need. Existing and prospective iPhone customers alike will benefit from enhanced access to their Call Log, SMS text messages and Notes."

A new feature for Missing Sync, the migration assistant, includes the software and step-by-step on-screen guide needed to bring existing contacts, tasks, events and photos from supported Palm OS, Windows Mobile or BlackBerry smartphones to the Mac and iPhone. Once migration is complete, instructions are included to safely clear data from the previous device, making it ready to responsibly pass on.

After migration, or for those that already are set up with their iPhone, Missing Sync for iPhone includes Mac applications to archive, browse and search iPhone SMS text messages, Call Log and Notes.

For many, SMS text messaging makes the world go round, with millions of text messages being sent worldwide every day. Missing Sync keeps a record of incoming and outgoing text messages exchanged with the iPhone. Once on the Mac, they can be searched and sorted in an iChat like threaded view.

With the included Call Log application, customers can easily lookup recent calls and keep track of all iPhone calls for time tracking or billing purposes. The Missing Sync for iPhone transfers a record of all incoming, outgoing and missed calls to the Mac where they can be searched, sorted and exported to other applications such as Excel or FileMaker; useful in preparing invoices or expense reports.

With Missing Sync, iPhone notes seamlessly transfer to the Mac. Choose to view them in Bare Bone's Yojimbo, Microsoft Entourage, or the included Mark/Space Notebook.
