iSync Goes into Public Beta

Software synchronizes data on desktops, portable devices By Dave Nagel
Apple this weekend released the public beta version of iSync. iSync is Apple's latest "digital hub" application, offering automatic synchronization of data between Macintosh desktops and portable devices, such as Pal-compatible handhelds, Apple's own iPod and Bluetooth-enabled GPRS mobile phones.

The iSync public beta, available now, also allows users of .Mac accounts to synchronize calendars and address books across multiple Macs via the Internet. Apple says it's also working mobile mobile phone companies like Cingular and Sony Ericsson to offer Mac users "the first easy-to-use, integrated "Mac to Mobile" solution with Bluetooth enabled phones such as the new T68i."


The iSync public beta is available for free download. It requires Mac OS X 10.2 or later. For more information, visit http://www.apple.com/isync.
