    Beta versions of The Missing Sync for Android, for Mac and PC, are now available to download and try.

    The Missing Sync for Android is the all-in-one solution that syncs information and media files between a Windows PC or Mac and an Android phone, like the T-Mobile myTouch 3G and HTC Hero.

    Android phone users can keep contacts in sync wirelessly via Wi-Fi, and transfer music, ringtones, photos, files, and videos fast with a USB cable.

    The Missing Sync for Android will sync with applications PC and Mac users already know: Microsoft Outlook, Entourage, Mac OS X Address Book, iTunes, Windows Media Player and iPhoto. The Missing Sync makes it easy to use contacts and media files on an Android phone.

    And, we will introduce even more features in free updates coming later this year, including sync of calendars, tasks and notes.

    Ah, I just received another email..

    "Please note that these beta versions do not yet support phones running Android 2.0, like the Motorola Droid. Support for Android 2.0 is coming soon."

    Your web site says it does not support Android 2.0 yet. Does it?

    For those unaware, there is a Motorola version by Nero called Motorola Media Link. I don't believe it syncs mail yet, but it does handle pics, movies, and music. Here's a link to the DL page:

    You should definitely organize a post about the different syncing software and sticky it. That way we can all easily see whats available and choose what we prefer.

    This program looks promising, hopefully it will be free or stay free? (Didn't stay on the site long since you said its not compatible with Android 2.0 yet).

    So Far looks like we have DoubleTwist and The Missing Sync as our options.

    Pretty impressed that solutions are appearing so quickly, since Android has not been out that long. It shouldn't see too hard to get sync working with the DROID considering it uses a standard media player (which means the PC software should have no problem handling and keeping track of the sync).

    Anyone know how many apps are on the Android Market now? I'd like to see how fast it grows since its tapped into huge a huge carrier (Verizon).

    The Missing Sync release version for other phones is $40.00 which i find a bit steep.

    would be nice to see some more of this "basic functionality" built into the OS.

    I agree $40 is a bit steep for that. Someone may find it useful though. I would guess the developers have lots of time into this app. I', already off outlook so i'm ok with it being the way it is :)

    Tried installing the beta of missing sync on my Win 7 machine and kept getting an error. Something about a side by side application.

    It works fine on Windows 7, what the people here in the forums are failing to mention is that you need to install it in compatibility mode for Vista SP2. I tried many times to install to Win 7 (x64) to no avail until I tried that. Unfortunately, both the moto media link and doubleTwist are a bit buggy and laggy for my taste, but it's good to try out these things and figure out which is good or not. Right now I'm very impressed with Media Monkey, although right now I'm migrating from iTunes, so I'll see how syncing is.

    Mediamonkey does Sync the music files flawlessly to Droid. I used MediaMonkey 3.1.0. The newer update, 3.2 offers better Music synchronisation to Android platform.

    I'm trying it now, once installed it gives you 32 days to try this out, then you have to pay for it. From what I've seen so far, its a neat little app...I was on the site and from what I saw, this program will be 39.99 for a 1 seat license.
