Sync Buddy is a backup and install management tool for Mac OS X users with Palm OS handhelds. Providing worry-free backups, installs and pictures management, Sync Buddy lets you reclaim control of your handheld. It complements the standard synchronization by giving you direct access to your handheld's contents.

Sync Buddy is not a replacement for the desktop software. Basic synchronization (address book, memo, etc) is still done through your preferred desktop software. You can (and should) still use Palm Desktop.

Performs as advertised. Downloaded software and began using immediately. Initiated sync and am able to move, copy, edit, restore etc using a normal finder interface. I will purchase this software.

Well, I tried it with my Treo and it turned out to be a complete failure : I had to reset it each time. Finaly, a friend of mine tried it on its palm, and it started work (usb), but bluetooth was a failure.
So, you better download something else...

Did work fine with Tungsten T2. However bought a Treo 650...and from then on had problems with usb hotsync - it would soft reset every time I tried to hhotsync. Bluetooth was fine. The culprit was a file sync buddy apparently copies from ROM to RAM to enable the treo to be used like a usb drive. Now am not using Sync Buddy until the problem is sorted out.

If you own a palm- buy this software. End of story.

2.0b2 doesn't work on my Palm M105 + Pismo over USB. It's a shame, because I recall the OS9 version being handy. Oh well.

In the days of MacOS 9 Sync Buddy was a neat and flawless application -- saved my Palm a couple of times. I really like to see a MacOS X version!
