Apple Releases iSync v1.0
Apple today announced the immediate availability of iSync 1.0, Apple's multi-device synchronization software and iCal 1.0.1, an update to Apple's calendar program that lets users manage multiple calendars and share them over the Internet. The update to iSync enhances synchronization, adds scheduling and improves on the Palm OS handheld support.
You can use iSync to synchronize your Address Book contacts and iCal calendar and To Do information on your Mac with the contacts and calendar on Palm OS devices like the Palm Tungsten T Handheld and the Handspring Treo. To do this, make sure you have iCal 1.0.1 (or later) and HotSync 3.0 (or later) for Mac OS X installed on your computer. iSync is also compatible with some of the latest GPRS Bluetooth-enabled wireless phones, including the T68i from Sony Ericsson.
Since the introduction of iCal in September, more than 1 million copies of iCal have been distributed and more than 200,000 calendars have been published online. iCal's breakthrough “Internet publish and subscribe” capability is a first for any calendar program. Users can “publish” their iCal calendars on the Internet, and other Mac® users can “subscribe” to them and view them in iCal on their own Mac. The subscribed to calendars will automatically update whenever the original published calendars are updated.
iSync 1.0 works seamlessly with the Mac® OS X version 10.2 “Jaguar” Address Book and iCal to synchronize contacts and calendars between Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones, PalmOS devices, Apple’s iPod™ portable digital music player and other Macs using Apple’s .Mac service. With iSync 1.0, users can for the first time sync their “Jaguar” Address Book with the new .Mac Address Book making it incredibly easy to access contacts while using .Mac Web Mail from any computer in the world. iSync 1.0 also includes regularly-scheduled Mac to Mac synchronization, which makes it even more convenient to keep information updated on multiple Macs. Both applications require Mac OS X version 10.2.3.
