This is conware. Costs a lot, never worked well anyway, and the last update breaks the final part of the software that was functioning (contacts; calendar wasn't working anyway). Piece of crap, stay away.

This company is completely useless. They don't really have a clue about how to treat customers well. And the software is marginal at best. Forget about any customer service.

good software with nice features if it would work!

I've lost so much time trying to make this software to work - if it does it is worth the price

but benefit with the time I had to spend in it make it work is VERY low!

Thank goodness for this update. It has made my syncing experience seamless to transfer contacts/calendar and more from my new Droid X to my iMac. This application has worked for me
and has been reliable through out all my syncs. I have imported data from different application for contacts and Missing Sync handled it well. Good Job mark/space and missing sync!!!!!

I have given up on using this software. Missing Sync for Palm used to work better than this. Maybe it's google's requirements, who knows, but this simply does not work. I've tried SyncMate, which is somewhat better, but gave up on that, too.

Just give in and sync with google in the cloud. In the long run (and short run) it's just easier and more reliable. Get a google email address, even if you don't plan on using it. And if you don't, why did you buy an android phone, anyway? Best of all, it's all free.

Contacts: there is a preference setting in Address Book to sync to google (and yahoo). You may have to do recursive syncs and merge contacts a couple of times to make them them same. Be sure to back up your contacts first.

Calendar: ditto. Back up your calendar! Sync TO goggle calendars and then subscribe in your android system. You'll have an iCal copy and google copy, so configuring it is kind of a pain. But when you do it once and have it right, you don't have to mess with it any more and it syncs without intervention on your part.

Files: dropbox, dropbox, dropbox.

I have been using this for a while to sync my nexus s, and Samsung galaxy 19000 and via wireless and bluetooth it works pretty well, over USB never got it to work.. Dev. is not very nice, a little attitude. Not very nice when you have a problem, but the app works ok for me.. Stupid website, a mess, hard to find the trail version of this app. but if you buy it and use one of the tel. I have listed above, it works with out issues..

If you want to get mentally raped then use this. I agree, it is the worst software on macupdate. Customer support is probably some deaf old dear chained up in a leaky outhouse in the middle nowhere.

This is simply the worst software available on MacUpdate and will mess you up more than an unpaid loan shark or payday loan center. It rendered my MacBook unstable and caused a Kernel Panic when I manually connected the phone to the 'book. Customer service is non-existent and they won't respond to you unless you plunk down some serious extra $$$. It won't sync the calendar. It syncs contacts but then doubles them and makes a mess out of both address books. Basically, I wish I had just followed the recipe on Google's website or at about.com, it would have been a lot less trouble in the long run and FREE.

ahh here is a tale for ya. The software would not even install on my one mac because of a broken ethernet card, this was only determined after many days, weeks spent emailing customer support. Eventually after Three weeks they said they would move the claim back to the sales department where they would process the refund. Three weeks after that I got an email saying the department had received my refund request and they would credit my card.

Two months later, yes Two Months later I had to email them again and ask what in the world was taking so long and that I could have had a thousand refunds from other companies already. They emailed back and said they would get right on it, Two weeks later the money was finally refunded. Worst customer/technical service I ever had with any company.

Please tell me where you found the Google recipe. I am planning on purchasing an Android phone.

Search for how to sync the android system with the mac on Google, which led me to the about.com article on this. Or you could look at about.com BTW. I keep getting emails from tech support to download the latest update and to reboot, force restart iSync, pull the battery out of the phone, and after all that pray the thing works (it didn't) I keep hoping it will someday, but it may have been a lot less work to set up the syncing myself based on both the about.com article and googles articles within iGoogle as to how make this work.

Thanks for the info!

I already sync my contacts through Address Book > Sync with Google as I have a Gmail account. So that part is very easy :-)
