Anybody happen to know how well a Palm plays with a macBook? I assume there's some sort of Palm Desktop application available to do the sync between the Mac & the Palm, yes? Do the calendar, phone book, etc for the Palm interoperate nicely with the corresponding apps on the Mac?

I have a friend who lives & dies by her Palm, & wants to replace her PC with a Mac. But she's concerned that it's going to be problematic. So she would be coming to a virgin Mac with a chock-full Palm. If the initial sync would get the Mac apps' databases populated, that would be lovely.

Depends which Palm we're talking about here. If it's the Pre (web OS) there's no native cal/contacts support. But there's DoubleTwist (or the ever on again/off again itunes sync) for media.

For the most part I sync everything through Google Contacts and Google Calendar, which I *think* you can sync with Mac's Address book and iCal. And the Pre actually does a good job of keeping all the google stuff in sync.



It says so right here in the wcw handbook!

Yeah, I knew the first question would be "which Palm is it?" It's an older one -- just PDA & definitely not a phone. I'm pretty sure it runs PalmOS. Might be an m515 ... OK, when I get back to Phoenix, I'll find out ...

I don't know how much she synced it, but Lise used a Tungsten E for a while. I don't recall if this was before or after she had a mac, though.

Well, it was before. I just don't remember when she stopped using it.

I thought I had it working with the macbook... but I never use the calendar, so I don't know about that sort of data sync. I always used my palm as more of a mobile document reader/editor and bejeweled platform.

For Palm OS I think you want Palm Desktop with Hotsync. I've never used it, but looks to be able to do what you're planning. Grab it while it's still on the Palm site as it appears certain KB pages are getting phased out.
