PocketMac is the closest thing and it will allow you to Synchronize data to your BlackBerry but will not be full featured Desktop Manager. Pocketmac can be found at https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/entry.do?code=A8BAA56554F96369AB93E4F3BB068C22

Re: Desktop Software for Mac OS X

guys although the pocket mac is free i would highly suggest you guys just buy the missingsync one. it is by far the best for your mac. spend the extra bucks get more features and peace of mind

Can we expect a full fledged Desktop Software App from RIM this year?   All we keep hearing are rumors of this but never any concrete info.  Thanks.

Yeah heard about it too but haven't heard anything follow-up or whatsoever. A full-fledged Mac Desktop Manager is totally awesome and surely there will be more users embracing BB Smiley Happy

Re: Desktop Software for Mac OS X

Or more Blackberries on ebay when the 3G iPhone is released later this year ... should RIM determine that Mac users aren't worth the desktop solution.  Presently, using a Mac and buying a Blackberry is only a partial solution.  My BB isn't three weeks old and there is a newer OS release out there now.  But I can't install it without going back to the cell store (no thanks, not with the silly waivers and obvious competency level of some of the staff).

 

Will RIM be transparent enough to keep BB/Mac users?  Time will tell.

Re: Desktop Software for Mac OS X

You cannot.

 

Unless you go to a windows machine.

 

RIM -- can you be more transparent with your development plans for Blackberry buyers on a Mac that do NOT have easy access to a PC nor will pay another several hundred just to run Windows unnecessarily on their computer.  Thank you.
