We use SyncMate every day. It’s an irreplaceable helper when working in a team that needs a perfect sync and a personal assistant at home. We know more than anyone that SyncMate interface could be much easier and understandable.
We gladly follow the user feedback and are eager to make SyncMate more handy and user-friendly. We heard you, and in one of the upcoming releases you will find some really neat interface improvements.
Merging of plugins
We decided to merge “iPhoto” and “iTunes & Video” plugins in SyncMate 4. You will be able to manage the sync of all your files, playlists, albums, and folders from one place.
In future “iPhoto”, “iTunes & Video”, and “Folders” plugins will be merged into one.
No more “plus” buttons
Also we are trying to simplify the interface. Particularly, we have decided to refuse “plus” button in plugins settings.
New user interface will allow you to create a sync pair without any additional actions.
“Checkbox” or “Switch” controls
Also we want to change some control elements. It’s time to replace checkboxes enabling the plugins with more convenient and simple switches. Our choice is iOS style switches, which show the status of the plugin more clearly.
We are busy putting this all to life and we are doing our best to deliver the update as soon as possible.

I’ll try to help you with connection and synchronization of Android 3 devices with Mac.
Imagine, you’ve finally got your Android 3 tablet and can’t take your eyes from it: it’s stylish, it’s multifunctional, it’s perfect.
“I want to have my music and photos on it!” you think, and connect your brand new device to your Mac but… nothing happens. The device is not detected by a Mac as it was with the earlier versions of Android OS and you may think something is wrong with your Android 3 device or its USB cable. Maybe you are even thinking of returning it back to the store.
In fact, the scenario described above is very typical for those Mac users who acquired an Android 3 tablet. But the true reason is – Android 3 devices simply cannot be mounted to your Mac in a way Android 2.x used to.
SyncMate solves this problem and allows mounting your Android 3 device as a Mac disk and browsing its content on Mac in Finder (Mount disk option*). You can easily transfer any files from your Mac to Android and vice versa in a simple, familiar manner. You can also view the images, play the videos and tracks without copying them to your Mac. Moreover, if you are transferring any files to (or from) your Android, you can still browse through other files your device contains as SyncMate works in a multithreading mode.
Note! In order to sync your Mac and Android you will also need to install SyncMate module for Android on your device (do not be confused if you don’t find SyncMate client module in Android Market, we are currently solving this issue. Meanwhile you can download it from our website).
