Missing Sync adds Windows Mobile 5 support

Link: Macworld: News: Missing Sync adds Windows Mobile 5 support.

Mark/Space on Tuesday announced the release of The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile v2.5. The new version is a free upgrade for users of 2.0, The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile 2.5 costs $39.95.

I’ve been waiting for this for a long time. I haven’t tried this out yet, but this actually looks better than the despised ActiveSync for Windows.

Before I plunk down 40 clams for this, I’d be interested to know about peoples’ experience using Missing Sync to sync up a Mac with a Palm 700w.

Update: I held my breath and bought Missing Sync sight unseen and after some struggling and a hard reset of my phone, got it working. (I blame this on the phone, not on Missing Sync, it had been overdue for a brainwipe for a while.) Also, I am here to say that syncing via Bluetooth is the bomb once you get it working.

Update: After struggling with it I bagged the Bluetooth sync and changed to USB sync. I was able to get Bluetooth sync working once or twice but there was way too much fiddling around and a few times it didn’t work at all. Sending the bits over a wire seems to work better.
