by Reads (13,298)

Information Appliance Associates has released PocketMac 3.0, an application for Pocket PC users who want to sync their handheld device with a Macintosh computer.

Support for Contacts, Calendar, and Tasks synchronization with Entourage, iCal, and the OS X Address Book has been improved for faster and more reliable synchronization. New features include Bluetooth support, a PocketMac theme that makes the Pocket PC look like a Mac PDA, and full support for Windows Mobile 2003 (with backward compatibility to previous Pocket PC devices).

It is now possible to install Pocket PC software, from both EXE and CAB files, as well as Pocket PC themes. Users can also mount the Pocket PC memory or Storage cards on the desktop for use with Finder. Integration with iSync, iTunes (for MP3s) and iPhoto is also included with this release.

Custom File Copy allows users to select specific files to be synced to the handheld device, and Sync on Connect starts synchronization automatically as soon as the Pocket PC is connected to a Mac.

The ability to sync email with Entourage and Mail is also included, as well as support for AvantGo and Web Favorites for offline browsing on the handheld device.

A passthrough Internet connection is also available with PocketMac 3.0, which allows users to send and recieve email and browse web sites on the device while it is connected to the Mac.

PocketMac 3.0 is available now for $41.77. For more information or online purchase, visit the Information Appliance Associates web site.
