Late last week, software developer Mark/Space released The Missing Sync for Palm OS 6.0.6, a 20.4 megabyte download (via MacUpdate). Like the other Missing Sync apps, Missing Sync for Android allows you to sync your Android devices music, photos, contacts and other data with your Mac.
The new version adds the following fixes and changes:
- Corrected application behavior when a sync is initiated from the phone or by Proximity Sync™, The Missing Sync will launch on the Mac in the background (it was not already running) and quit after the sync has completed.
- Added support for syncing multiple alarms in events.
- Reduced memory usage when syncing large sets of data.
- Improved reliability of syncing read-only (subscribed) iCal calendars.
- Improved handling of special (extended) characters within the body of contacts or events.
- Enhanced the user interface for the Music and Photos plugin settings.
- Improved Sync History log messages to better indicate problem records.
- Resolved an issue where extra lines (line feeds) in event and contact records could cause sync errors.
- The companion Android phone apps, Fliq Notes, Fliq Calendar and The Missing Sync were also updated to provide necessary support and compatiblity with the 1.4.3 Update.
The Missing Sync 1.4.3 retails for US$39.95 and requires the following elements to install and run:
- Mac OS X 10.5.6 or later
- iTunes 7.4 or later required to sync music
- iPhoto 5.0 or later required to sync photos
- iCal 2.0.5 or later
- QuickTime, version 7 or later required to sync video
- Android phone and Mac must be on the same Wi-Fi network to sync contacts
- Internet access required for product registration and device pairing
- Bluetooth contacts syncing requires phone running Android OS 2.0 or later
