Looking for an alternative to Desktop Manager

Hi all,


I've had nothing but problems with this app.  Running version OS X 10.5.8 on a G5 and BB Desktop Manager ver 1.0.3 build 19.



#1) the program does not Quit when I use the "X" or the Quit Function.  It hangs and I have to Force+Quit it.  Everytime.  It's done this over the past two upgrades.


#2) there HAS to be a better way of syncing data.  I get duplicates and other times I get appts and contacts deleted.  It has NEVER been clean in the way it syncs.  It's awful software.


My old cell phone with the basics had a better desktop manager than this thing.  It showed the Mac Entourage data on side and the BB data on the other.  Then you could select what you wanted to delete from either side and then do a sync and it would make sure it matched everything up.  No duplicates and a perfect sync everytime.  This was 4 (FOUR) years ago.  This current version is not up to par.  Horrible design.


Does anyone have an alternative to suggest?  Even a "paid for" app?


Thanks for the help.
