    PocketMac 4.0 vs. 3.0

    Advertisement



    Hey Everyone,

    Just wondering now, just over a month, how people like the new PocketMac 4. I have to say, I recently re-installed the old PocketMac (3.0), due to the fact that my address book just wasn't syncing like it used to. I wasn't getting dup entries, but information just wasn't updating from one to the other. I found myself changing an entry on my 8700, then going to Mac's address book and making the change there before syncing...then what's the point of having syncing, right?

    Wondering if anyone else is having these issues with 4.0. Overall, it's awesome that we Apple users are getting closer to having a full desktop manager on our OS, but it still needs some work.

    Let me know what you all think-

    Thanks, AJM

    PocketMac 4.0 vs. 3.0

    Why is is that 3.0 does a better job of just plain syncing than 4.0? I mean, one was overseen by Rim (4), and one wasn't. All I know, is that I am much happier using 3.0 for everyday sync, and 4.0 for Bookmarks, and Installing software. Anyone else having issues?

    Thanks,
    AJM

    I would agree that 3.0 seemed to be a bit more consistents and stable than 4. I can't get the bookmark sync function working at all, for example. However, I am able to sync my data ok.

    v4.0 feels like an early beta release.
    I hope work is continuing and we can expect some update soon.

    Re: PocketMac 4.0 vs. 3.0

    I have Pocket Mac 4.0 and it doesn't work w/ my Pearl. It worked once on a machine where I had never sync'ed anything before using 3.0. I am starting to think that there is some problem installing on a machine which had a prev version of Pocket Mac, b/c now there is nothign I can do to make it sync my calendar items, and it always reboots my blackberry and pocket mac usually crashes during the sync.

    There are two utility files that come with PocketMac4 that will clean out existing issues. Also, try re-inserting the cable into your USB port until PM4 recognizes that the Pearl is there.
