Mark/Space intros The Missing Sync for iPhone

Mark/Space, maker of synchronization solutions for Mac OS X, has announced The Missing Sync for iPhone. This new application 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 logs, 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.” The Missing Sync for iPhone is expected to ship in the fourth quarter of 2007. Electronic downloads will be priced at $40 from the Mark/Space Online Store, and CDs will be available several weeks later for $50.

I have to say that this is one of the most frustrating parts about new technology.  When you build something as innovative as the iPhone, why not build a sync tool that works to go with it…then your consumers don’t have to go buy $40 accessories that used to be common in the purchase…

Why should a consumer buy this product?  Apple should supply a solid sync tool for free.

just my two cents

Run FAR, FAR AWAY from The Missing Sync. In my experience, their software corrupts your data (calendars, contacts, etc.), especially when Palm devices are involved. You will have to “reset” your devices’ sync histories - Mark/Space’s only answer to the problem they created - with increasing frequency.

...and of course it does not add category support to the calendar. The call log feature makes sense for business users, otherwise this is all pretty pointless, especially at the price. I do agree with simmer1119, Apple is the one to be looked at for decent sync. It is the lack of it that keeps me away from this first gen iPhone, along with the pathetic Euro-pricing.

Worse still is the fact that Missing Sync does NOT work with Leopard.  Seriously, WTF? Are you kidding me?  I work at a small software company and have had access to every single one of the Leopard betas, and we managed to be ready.  They are telling users that it could be as long as “90 days” until they have something available. Meanwhile, Mac users who really have no other option are left having to use ActiveSync in a VM or Bootcamp.  Ugh.

Run far, far away indeed.
