Mac owners interested in buying one of the recently released Microsoft Kin smartphones should be pleased to hear this.
Mark/Space has just announced the immediate release of their software program that will allow instant media and data transfer from the Kin to a Mac.
Handpicked by Microsoft as the exclusive designer of this software, Mark/Space has developed the Media Sync Software, which allows users to directly transfer photos to iPhoto and music/podcasts to iTunes. The process can be done in the reverse direction, which should be especially useful if you want to watch video on the Kin.
Best of all, the software is free and available for download at the Mark/Space website now. The program requires include a Mac computer running on an Intel chip with OS X version 10.5.6 or later. Other software requirements include having at least iTunes 7.4, iPhoto 6.0 and QuickTime 7.0.
