Mark/Space Releases The Missing Sync for iPhone
The Missing Sync for iPhone Offers Powerful Migration Tools for smartphone Switchers and Adds Useful Synchronization Capabilities Not Provided by Apple
LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwire - December 31, 2007) - Mark/Space, Inc. today announced the
immediate availability of The Missing Sync for iPhone. The Missing Sync for
iPhone helps migrating smartphone users switch to the iPhone, and enhances
current iPhone users' synchronization features. Now SMS, call logs and
notes data will no longer be trapped on the iPhone.
Mark/Space has, for some time, provided a lifeline for Mac users that want
to use smartphones and other devices. Now that Apple has an attractive
alternative to those devices, Mark/Space now lets those people migrate
their data easily with The Missing Sync for iPhone. It also adds features
for iPhone users that need to capture useful data created on the iPhone,
like SMS messages, notes and call logs.
As Windows users are also switching to the iPhone, Mark/Space is also
working on a Windows version of The Missing Sync for iPhone to be released
in the coming months.
Brian Hall, Mark/Space CEO, said, "Our business is based on connectivity
and freedom of choice for consumers. So it makes perfect sense to develop a
product that helps users migrate their data from one mobile platform to
another. The Missing Sync for iPhone does just that, and it joins our other
Missing Sync products in making sure that Mac users get a comparable, and
often an improved, experience to Windows users using any smart mobile
Migration made easy
The Missing Sync for iPhone supports migration from most smartphones using
Palm OS, Windows Mobile or BlackBerry OS. The Migration assistant is a
step-by-step utility that makes getting contacts, calendars and phone
camera photos a simple task. Even if users never synced with their Macs
before, The Missing Sync for iPhone makes it easy to transfer data from the
old phone and load the information onto the iPhone in minutes.
The iPhone keeps only 1000 SMS messages, both incoming and outgoing, which
means at some point users will start to lose older information. But The
Missing Sync for iPhone collects that data so messages are safe no matter
how prolific a texter you are. It also lets users view and search the SMS
messages in a threaded view on their Mac, just like on the iPhone.
Incoming calls aren't always from people in the address book, and often
they're useful numbers to have. Syncing the call log means users can browse
new contact numbers and add the useful ones to the Address Book on the Mac.
It also means that incoming, outgoing and missed calls are logged, which is
great for business users that need to keep track of costs. Need to claim
expenses for that hour-long business call to Paraguay? No problem, just
check the call log.
A note about notes
The Notes application on the iPhone is a useful scratch pad for ideas,
plans and to-do lists. But often those notes are more useful elsewhere,
perhaps with other notes you have on your computer. The Missing Sync for
iPhone will sync the iPhone notes, so you can read them in Microsoft
Entourage, Yojimbo from Bare Bones Software, or Mark/Space Notebook, which
comes as part of the package.
Pricing and availability
The Missing Sync for iPhone is available immediately as an electronic
download from the Mark/Space Online Store for $39.95. A CD-ROM version will
be available shortly at $49.95. Upgrades from qualifying Mark/Space
products are $24.95.
Compatibility and system requirements
The Missing Sync for iPhone will run on any Mac with Mac OS X v10.4.9 or
newer, native USB support, and an internet connection. Data migration
supports devices with native USB capability running Windows Mobile
2002/2003/5/6, BlackBerry 4.0 or higher, Palm OS 4 or Palm OS 5. For
