Mark/Space Releases 1.0 Beta of The Missing Sync for Palm® Pre™ for Mac

Synchronize Address Book, Entourage, iCal, iTunes, iPhoto and More With Palm Pre

LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwire - June 11, 2009) - Mark/Space, creator of award-winning desktop and handheld synchronization software, has released version 1.0 Beta of The Missing Sync for Palm Pre. Synchronize contacts, calendars, music, ringtones, photos and more between a Mac and the new Palm® Pre™ phone. And PC users won't have long to wait. A Windows Vista and Windows XP version is on the way.

"For over a decade Mark/Space and Palm have developed software that helps customers get the most from all the features of their phone," said Mark/Space CEO Brian Hall. "We are delighted to deliver a preview app for Palm Pre."

Pam Deziel, vice president, Developer Marketing, Palm, Inc., said, "Mark/Space's first-class solution designed specifically for using Palm Pre with a Mac is a welcome addition to the webOS developer community."

The Missing Sync for Palm Pre makes your Pre and Mac close companions.

Use The Missing Sync to keep contacts and calendars in sync between a Pre and a Mac. Easily transfer music, ringtones, videos, photos and bookmarks. Copy files and documents to a Pre to store and view. The Missing Sync for Palm Pre works with the applications Mac owners already know and use: Address Book, Entourage, iCal, iTunes, iPhoto and others.

Contacts and Calendars Stay In-Sync

Mark/Space Proximity Sync™ technology can sync a Mac with a Pre via Wi-Fi -- sync happens automatically and wirelessly whenever the Pre is near the Mac.(1) It works even when Pre is in a backpack or pants pocket. Address Book, Entourage and iCal stay in sync with Pre without you having to think about it. Its syncing without thinking -- convenient and hassle-free.

Choose the groups of contacts and calendars you want on your Pre. Synchronized contacts and calendars work with Palm Synergy™ so that contacts from Address Book and Microsoft Entourage can be viewed on a Pre in a single list that links them with contacts from Google and Facebook. Calendars from iCal can be viewed, layered together in a single view with other calendars, pulling your entire schedule together in one place.

Take Your Favorites with You

The Missing Sync works with iTunes and iPhoto making it easy to transfer and sync favorite photo albums and playlists of music and podcasts -- both audio and video.(2) Plus, The Missing Sync converts and transfers digital video and home movies optimized for the best viewing experience on Pre. You don't have to manually drag music, video or picture files to your phone.

Customize Pre with ringtones created in GarageBand or other ringtone editing software. The Missing Sync will transfer them from iTunes to your Pre.

On Your Mac, On Your Pre Too

View Microsoft Office documents and PDFs on your phone. The Missing Sync conveniently synchronizes folders of files -- like Microsoft Excel, Word and PowerPoint documents -- from the Mac to the Pre.

Safari bookmarks become Pre bookmarks too. Transfer bookmarks from a Mac with ease. View them in the Mark/Space MyBookmarks app, and transfer favorites to the Pre Web app.

The Missing Sync for Palm Pre works hand-in-hand with The Missing Sync companion app for Palm Pre to help customers get the most from the features of their phone.

About the Palm Pre Phone

Palm® Pre™ is the first phone running the new Palm webOS™ platform, which brings together your important information from where it resides -- on your phone, at your work or on the web -- into one logical view.(3) Palm Synergy™, a key feature of webOS, pulls your contacts and calendars from places like Outlook, Google and Facebook, so everything is right there for you when you need it. Palm Pre also lets you flip back and forth between all the things you have open at once -- instead of opening and closing them -- so you can flow easily between activities without losing your place. Pre's exquisite design includes a touch screen and a physical keyboard that slides out only when needed. The new Palm Pre and webOS are designed to be so in sync with your needs that it feels like Pre is thinking ahead for you. More information about the Palm Pre phone is available at www.palm.com/Pre.
