Sync your Windows PDA with Mac Address book and Mac and Google calenders

One of the downsides of being a Mac user is the difficulty in synching a Windows PDA phone to your Mac. You can resolve that two ways

  1. Buy an iphone – no good if you are still on a contract paying off another phone
  2. Get Syncmate from Eltima software

Syncmate is now available with a free edition that allows you to sync your contacts and calendars – including Google calendar. The expert edition allows you to sync itunes and iphoto plus some other goodies as well.Syncmate screenshot
