BlackBerry Mac syncing frustrates many RIM customers, but one software company, PocketMac, offers quick relief.
"There are plenty of Mac-based BlackBerry customers who love their BlackBerry but are seriously let down by the events of late," Tim Goggin, co-owner of PocketMac said. "The RIM outage in which customers were unable to fully use their BlackBerry for days was the straw that broke the camel’s back for a lot of people."
Goggin’s solution to keep customers in the BlackBerry fold is PocketMac for BlackBerry. This alternative sync solution, invented in 2004, aims to make sure BlackBerry users who also use a Mac can have their data properly synced. Most PocketMac for BlackBerry customers are users who migrated from RIM’s Desktop Manager software.
Goggin added, "Some Mac BlackBerry customers aren’t happy with Desktop Manager. Depending on which smartphone forum you read, they’re not thrilled with the syncing capabilities or the time they’ve spent with tech support to make it work. That’s where PocketMac for BlackBerry comes in."
PocketMac for BlackBerry was created by Goggin and his brother and ushered in the world of BlackBerrys and Macs talking to each other for the first time. And for 3 years starting in 2006, RIM licensed the software to give away to its customers.
Goggin continued, "Our 7 years working with the BlackBerry gives us the know-how to make syncing work on both the BlackBerry and Mac BlackBerry side seemlessly."
PocketMac’s fans range from the former Moroccan ambassador to the US to ordinary businesspeople who want something dependable and reliable to safeguard their data.
Chris Cary, a PocketMac customer, wrote, "you are every blackberry users salvation if they want to switch to Mac computers."
Will Meek, another PocketMac customer said, "I just wanted to say thank you very much for developing and offering PocketMac for BlackBerry. It is an awesome app!”
PocketMac for BlackBerry syncs the following to the BlackBerry:
(*) Entourage 2008
(*) Outlook 2011
(*) Address Book
(*) And much more...
PocketMac for BlackBerry is available now for just $29.97. More information on PocketMac for BlackBerry can be found here...
