    Necessity of PocketMac or Missing Synch

    Advertisement



    I am seriously considering switching to a Mac, so I have been doing some reading and research. I see a lot of discussion about PocketMac and Missing Synch. Can someone explain what these programs do. It sounds like they just synch the BB to Entourage (and not very well). Since I am on a BES, I assume I will not need these products. is that right?

    I am on a BES. I therefore think I will not need to synch. I expect to run Desktop Manager under VMWare Fusion for OS Upgrades. I have not really gotten any definite confirmation this will work

    I appreciate your thoughts and advice.

    If you're on BES and using Entourage, you won't have to worry about email, contacts or calendar. All of that will reconcile automatically OTA.

    MissingSync (or heaven forbid, PocketMac) will sync your Tasks and Notes.

    MissingSync will add to that Music and Photos.

    PocketMac will add to that application install, bookmarks and email.

    I strongly recommend MissingSync as I have never been able to get PocketMac to work.

    Try PocketMac first since it's free and see how it works out for you. Then you can try Missing Sync's software if they have a trial (I'm sure they do somewhere I just can't find it).
