The SyncMate 3
program from Eltima Software has been providing Android users with a way of seamlessly syncing their phones with their Mac for some time, but the latest update integrates support for Android powered tablets as well.
The free version of SyncMate
will allow you to sync your contacts and calendars between your Mac and your Android device, but if you upgrade to the ‘Expert’ edition at $39.95, you can also transfer folders, music, images, videos, and bookmarks.
The software also enables you to mount your device as a disk and send SMS messages directly from your Mac with the SMS manager. Devices can be connected via USB, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.
is an essential piece of software for anyone who uses a Mac with their Android device. While iTunes may have its issues, it’s still a great way for iOS users to manage the content on their devices from one application. SyncMate
provides a solution for those running the Android platform who are denied iTunes support by Apple. Its only downside is that you cannot manage your applications.
As well as Android phones and tablets, SyncMate will also sync your Mac with your Windows Mobile device, Nokia S40 phones and the Sony PSP.
