Mark/Space will soon release desktop synchronization software for smartphones powered by the Android OS. This will sync contacts and transfer music and video between an Android phone and a computer running Windows XP, Windows Vista or Mac OS X.
Google Android OS has been designed to synchronize its data with online sources, but many prefer to sync locally. Mark/Space’s new app will let them do so.
The initial version will offer syncing address book information with Microsoft Outlook, Entourage, and Mac OS X Address Book. A version with support for synchronizing calendars, tasks and notes will be released before the end of this year.
The Missing Sync for Android will support Mark/Space Proximity Sync technology. This transfers data between the computer and the smartphone via Wi-Fi. The synchronization process happens automatically and wirelessly whenever the two are near each other.
Audio, Video, and More
This software will be able to transfer iTunes and Windows Media Player music playlists via USB cable. Ringtones, photos, and videos can transfer this way, too.
The FolderSync feature will copy folders of files and documents — PDF, Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint — from a PC or Mac to an Android phone to store and view.
Coming this Week
Preview versions of The Missing Sync for Android will be available for download from the Mark/Space website this week, leading to a 1.0 release later in October.
As mentioned earlier, this company will introduce more features in upcoming free updates to this application by the end of the year.
