iSyncIt is a small menu bar application that allows you to sync your devices more easily and quickly than just using iSync alone. iSyncIt has the ability to automatically turn your bluetooth on and off, saving you power if you are using a laptop. It also has a built in scheduler to allow you to set up automatic syncing of your devices.To reduce the amount of space needed on your menu bar iSyncIt also contains an, albeit limited, bluetooth menu, allowing you to use iSyncIt as a replacement for your bluetooth menu bar item.

How do you know what iSync is actually syncing? I downloaded this primarily for the task of syncing my work folder on my school MAC (which has bluetooth) with the work folder on my home computer. Can anyone help?

Terrific little utility. Using this gives you several advantages:

1. Bluetooth can stay off when you're not using it, which preserves battery power.

2. You can sync to your phone with one click. Even though it's not hard to start iSync and click the button, you'll be surprised how much more often you sync when it gets this easy.

3. You don't need to clutter your dock with another icon; iSyncIt lives in the menu bar.

Apple's own iSync offers a menu bar item too, but it does not reliably sync a Bluetooth phone - in particular, if you are not using .Mac syncing and Apple iSync is not open at the time, then it doesn't work.

That's why you need this application, iSyncIt. It will enable Bluetooth, launch iSync, sync, quit iSync and disable Bluetooth. (If you want, you can turn off the feature that enables/disables Bluetooth.)

Just a note to everyone using a desktop Mac. I don't believe that bluetooth power can be controlled on desktops, it remains permenantly on. The syncing will still work but I recommend turning bluetooth control off in 'Preferences'.

if i understand it, this puts an icon in the doc that will:

1. turn bluetooth on
2. launch isync and start the sync
3. close isync once the sync is done
4. turn bluetooth off

??

seems like a lot of trouble to go through to make this into an application, since bluetooth already lives in my menubar with off/on functionality, and isync is in my dock.

but hey, if you had fun doing it....

Hi, thanks for the feedback.

The application now lives in the menu bar and in it's current version (0.5) can now serve as a replacement for the bluetooth menu item.

Essentaily its purpose is to replace the missing functionality of the iSync menu bar item that does not sync devices when you click it, just dotMac

It started out as something to make my life easier, I only had to click one thing and it would do all of the bluetooth and syncing stuff for me, I could click and go back to what I was doing.

Now it has also become a port for me to learn objective-C and Cocoa. The AppleScript has been essentially stripped out completely in 0.5 whereas in 0.1 it was an AppleScript application written in script editor. I wouldn't say fun, but a learning curve.

Hi,

I have made such a script too ^^ using bits and tips from macosxhints. Do you use blueutil?

I have too admit one-click sync is nice
