Apple Updates iSync

Apple has released an updated version of iSync. iSync is Apple's synchronization program that keeps info from mobile phones, Palm OS handhelds, .mac and the iPod in sync.

iSync, which allows users to instantly sync their Mac address book and calendars with their mobile phone, Palm OS device, iPod™ and other Macs, now delivers calendar support for Symbian-based smartphones and supports new mobile phones from Sony Ericsson, extending Apple’s lead in integrating with Bluetooth-enabled phones. 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.

“iCal and iSync give Mac OS X users access to their contacts and calendars wherever they go—on their mobile phones, Palm OS PDAs and iPods,” said Rob Schoeben, Apple’s vice president of Applications Marketing. “Used together with .Mac, Apple’s suite of Internet services, iCal and iSync allow users to effortlessly sync important information across multiple Macs.”

iSync 1.2.1 adds complete calendar synchronization support for Symbian-based smartphones such as the Nokia 3650 and 7650, and the Sony Ericsson P800. With the addition of the Sony Ericsson T616 and Z600, iSync 1.2.1 supports over 20 mobile phones from Nokia, Motorola, Sony Ericsson and Siemens.

If you have different Groups of contacts set-up in Address Book in OS X, say "Family" "Business" etc, and use iSync they go across to the Palm and all get lumped together in the "UNFILED" category.

I have moaned about this for the last two releases with no joy :-(

This is the only annoyance in an otherwise great piece of software.

i wonder if you could help me with my system. every time I synchronize my Tungsten T3 with my G4 mac using the isync palm conduit, the program behaves as if I am syncing for the first time, and starts by installing programs and then going through the whole thing with getting contacts and adding contacts etc.. rather than simply update the changes. i have my conduit settings set to synchronize. what am i doing wrong??

I guess there's some added convenience for Mac Users.

I guess one day there will be a day when I will have to move to a Mac....because I'm totally fed up with Windows......

However, one thing will not change when I move to the Mac....I'm still gonna be possessing Palm Handhelds everyday--The Enchanted Palm Handheld and myself will always be whole...even after I move to a Mac, more likely IBook.

My Primary Handheld: Palm Tungsten C "Eurenzannig"
My Secondary Handheld: Palm Tungsten T "Mautenzannig"

Could you please elaborate on what it is about Windows you are "fed up" with?

I could elaborate long and hard about my complaints about Windows, but this is hardly the forum for it ;)
