The Missing Sync for Android to Transfer and Sync Contacts and Media Files Easily Between a Windows PC or Mac Computer and an Android Phone


LOS GATOS, CA–(Marketwire – October 1, 2009) – Mark/Space, creator of award-winning desktop and handheld synchronization software, announced today that they are developing an all-in-one desktop sync solution for phones powered by the Android OS, such as the T-Mobile myTouch and HTC Hero. The Missing Sync for Android will easily and reliably synchronize contacts and transfer media files between an Android phone and a computer running Windows XP, Windows Vista or Mac OS X.


“The Missing Sync for Android comes just in time to meet the arrival of exciting new Android powered phones from Motorola, Samsung, LG and others expected to shake up the mobile phone market this quarter,” said Mark/Space CEO Brian Hall. “In adding Android OS to the list of mobile phone platforms supported by The Missing Sync, we now provide complete coverage for all popular smartphone platforms worldwide.”


Keep contacts in sync via Wi-Fi with Mark/Space Proximity Sync™ technology. Sync happens automatically and wirelessly whenever the phone is near the computer.(1) Proximity Sync works even when the phone is in a backpack or pants pocket. Microsoft Outlook, Entourage and Mac OS X Address Book stay synchronized with an Android phone without having to think about it. It’s syncing without thinking — convenient and hassle-free.


The Missing Sync also makes it easy to enjoy the rich media features of Android powered phones. iTunes and Windows Media Player music playlists transfer via USB cable without a hitch using The Missing Sync.(2) Transfer ringtones, photos and videos too.


The FolderSync™ feature copies folders of files and documents — PDF, Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint — from a PC or Mac to an Android phone to store and view.(3)


Preview versions of The Missing Sync for Android will be available for download from the Mark/Space web site next week, leading to a 1.0 release later in October.


Mark/Space will introduce more features in upcoming free updates to The Missing Sync for Android. New features planned for release in Q4 this year include synchronization of calendars, tasks and notes.
