Several weeks after releasing a public beta, Mark/Space, Inc. is now offering the full version of The Missing Sync for BlackBerry 1.0. This application allows handhelds and smartphones from Research In Motion to synchronize with Mac OS X computers.

It can sync information between Mac OS X’s Address Book and iCal applications and the corresponding applications on the phone.

Built-in support for Apple’s Sync Services technology means that information can also be synchronized with other Sync Services-compatible applications, including Microsoft Entourage 2004 and Chronos’ SOHO Organizer.

Memos can be synced with the included Mark/Space Notebook application, or alternatively with Microsoft Entourage or Bare Bones Software’s Yojimbo.

Multimedia Support

BlackBerry Pearl and 8800 owners can take advantage of the multimedia capabilities of The Missing Sync for BlackBerry, which can interface directly with Apple’s iPhoto and iTunes applications.

Users are be able to choose iPhoto albums to be resized and downloaded to the smartphone for mobile viewing. Photos taken with the Pearl’s camera can be automatically imported into iPhoto or a folder on the Mac.

The Missing Sync’s iTunes plug-in lets users select playlists of unprotected music and podcasts to be downloaded to the Pearl’s memory card. If the playlist changes, those changes will then be mirrored on the handset during the next sync.

It costs $39.95, but a discount is available for those who have a Mark/Space application for another mobile platform.
