LOS GATOS, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 12/31/07 -- 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 device."
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.
