      • squiddy20

        Awwww that's just cruel! :P

        Of course, that would kinda defeat the purpose since it's a Mac only application...

    NICE. I sync everything in the cloud, so I don't think there's a need for this. But we'll see.

    Sync with your phone? Will this allow me to sync from android to my mac.. music will become fully aligned?! I'm putting my hat in.

    • http://www.sync-mac.com/ Alex

      Yes, SyncMate syncs data in 3 directions: from a Mac to Android, from Android to a Mac and bidirectional.

  • Phil Fernandez

    Would love to win this one! Bring it!!

  • John

    ooh ooh ooh!!!! Me me me!!!!

  • Scott

  • Ludvig Nilson

    Nice price, wanna win, yes ofcourse thats not a sin.

  • Aphex

    *ahem* do you have something for me?

  • April Johnson

    nice prize for just a small comment

  • Pete

    Ready started sending out notifications, I was 1 of 10 lucky winners. Thnx AP! : )

  • iofractal

    your comment was a bit too short...

  • http://www.fanboycafe.com Dustin

    Great giveaway and awesome comment about how easy it is ;)

  • Rob

    At first thought I didn't see much need for an app like this, considering that I synch my contacts, email and calendar with Google services, but upon closer review this app does have some advantages. The ability to synchronize iTunes is in and of itself reason enough to want this little gem. I love my EVO, but the frustration which ensues over transferring iTunes songs to the device are almost enough to send me back to my iPod Touch for my music-listening needs. I said "almost". I've been using TuneSync, which is more than capable, but I'd welcome any opportunity to compare SyncMate's abilities to what I'm currently using. :D

  • shockzor

    I'm a poor college kid, I love free things!

  • flashslug

    looks very interesting

  • Kevin

    So if my only source of wifi at home is tethering from my phone, would that be a problem?

    • http://www.sync-mac.com/ Alex

      No, it wouldn't. SyncMate allows connecting and syncing Mac and Android via USB, Bluetooth or WiFi - pick the way of connection you like the most and you are ready to sync:)

      And BTW SyncMate doesn't require Internet connection when syncing data between Mac and Android, it syncs data directly between devices so even if you do not have access to the Internet you can still sync with SyncMate.

      Sorry if I misunderstood your question:)

  • Jon

    The missing link. I could really use this.

  • Gabriel Féron

    Oh, nice software, one of the missing "features" of Android. I definitely think Google should develop a software to sync Android phones, but this one seems nice!

  • Jamison England

    Let me win please!

  • Todd

    I need a good way to sync OSX and Android. I would even pay good money for a way to sync iCloud Calendar with Android.

    • http://www.sync-mac.com/ Alex

      SyncMate won't sync data in your iCloud with Android as it works only with that data, which is stored on Mac. When you are enabling iCloud for calendars, they are transferred to the cloud and are no longer stored on Mac.

  • Andrew

    This certainly seems useful. Please enter me to win a copy. Thanks for the giveaway!

  • http://thekeepsakes.bandcamp.com Anthony

    This looks great! It'd make my life a lot easier to organise.

  • Franco C.

    androidpolice is the BEST website ever haha (;

  • Azlan

  • Joe Hoffman

    I have a Big Mac, (sandwich), will it still work?

  • Alex

    I'd appreciate this!

  • Nocturnhabeo

    In light of my current status as god of the world I feel that I can benefit the most people if I am given this. So because I am already fixing the contest in my favor thank you for your generous offering to appease me.

  • ricardo nunes

    not bad, i love all of these androidpolice give aways!

  • Juanca

    I have a mac, maybe I will have luck!

  • Nexuz-Uno

    I am an avid Mac user while also crazy for Android. I have used SyncMate's demo, but never really wanted to spend money on something that I think should be built into Android. I am one of those people who freak out when something happens to my phone and I loose my data. I get extremely upset. I also NEVER win anything. I would really appreciate a copy of SyncMate. :)


  • M. Slampak

    This would be very useful!

  • Anshu

    Nice! I have a Mac so you should pick me!
