Mark/Space Announces Support for Mac OS X Tiger

Mark/Space today announced that their current release of The Missing Sync for Palm OS supports Mac OS X v10.4 "Tiger," and that future Missing Sync releases will take advantage of exciting new technologies introduced in Apple's latest operating system.

Future products from Mark/Space will employ Tiger's Xsync technology to further improve the Mac sync experience with mobile devices running a variety of operating systems. By taking advantage of Tiger's Xsync technology, Mark/Space applications will enjoy improved synchronization with Mac OS X applications and better overall integration with Tiger. Mark/Space engineers are also looking at how they can use technologies like Tiger's lightening-fast Spotlight search technology to provide new functionality for users.

"Like the rest of the Mac community, we've been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Mac OS X Tiger," said Brian Hall, president and CEO of Mark/Space. "Tiger brings true innovation to the state of data synchronization and the sharing of information between multiple computers, handheld devices and smartphones. Our new products will leverage Tiger's sync technologies to give customers an even better sync experience."

Owners of Palm Powered devices will be pleased to know that the current release of The Missing Sync for Palm OS already supports Mac OS X Tiger. Thanks in part to Apple including a new iSync Palm Conduit in Tiger, current users of The Missing Sync for Palm OS will be able to sync with Address Book and iCal right away. With Tiger's new Xsync technology and a .Mac account, users can now keep their contacts, calendar events and to-dos synchronized across multiple computers.

Address Book/iCal

I hope they will be able to improve the double crappy Address Book and iCal conduits. It seems Tiger has improved the sync process so that I don't have a zillion duplicates or fields removed from the palm dbs because they don't exist in Address Book, there still doesn't seem to be syncing of categories.

Glad to see that they support the new OS already. I haven't tried hotsyncing since I installed Tiger, but I'm assuming that it will still work fine with my Palm Desktop.

What will convince me to upgrade to Mark/Space is if they manage to take advantage of spotlight to allow us to search PIM data. Right now spotlight lets me find calendar entries, addresses, e-mail, word docs, pictures, and more but it falls down in that I can't search the memos on my Palm.

Even better, if they could also get it to search ALL apps on my Palm, then I would be really impressed.

Well they have not impressed me this far. I bought it after reading the press release, but neither in 10.3 nor in 10.4 have I got it to work. It just keep crashing on me.

The software itself looks nice, with a good set of otion, but for me there is still two vital things missing:

1) To be able to sync my Treo 600 and my Macs
2) Delivering on promises. My old Palm sync stuff worked flawlessly. This just crashes.

...or is it just me?
