Default PocketMac 4.0 Released

Please Login to Remove!

From the PocketMac team! I have no affiliation with them.

Looks like RIM is hosting the software now.

==============
Hi,

Research In Motion has just released Version 4.0 of PocketMac for BlackBerry. The instructions for downloading it are below.

I also wanted to let you know what's new in this great release:

What's New In This Release?

Application Loading--Now, PocketMac for BlackBerry can install 3rd party applications and games directly from your Mac to your BlackBerry.

E-Mail Synchronization--You can sync your email messages from either Mail.app or Microsoft Entourage back and forth from your Mac and Blackberry.

MeetingMaker Support--With this new release, MeetingMaker users can synchronize data between MeetingMaker and your BlackBerry.

IBM Lotus® Notes® Support--You can now synchronize data between Lotus Notes and your BlackBerry handheld.

Intel Duo Mac support--You can run this version on both PowerPC and Intel Macs.

3rd Party Software Store--We've included special links to a PocketMac customers-only 3rd party software store with software that we've made sure will work from your Mac to your BlackBerry.

Support for The BlackBerry Pearl™--with this new version, you'll be able to map the MicroSD memory card as an external USB Mass Storage device on your desktop, allowing you to transfer music, pictures, videos and much more.

Support for syncing with the new 8700 and 8703 devices, too!


How Do I Download This New Release?

Step 1: Click Here (or copy to your browser) To Start The Downloading Process:

http://www.blackberry.com/support/downloads/index.shtml

Step 2: Click On The "Download" Link
When you get to the download software page, click on the "Download" BlackBerry Desktop Software link

Step 3: Choose "PocketMac v4.0 for BlackBerry"
Select "PocketMac v4.0 for BlackBerry" from the choice of software products to download. Click "Next"

Step 4: Click "Download Software"
The final step is simple. Just click the "Download Software" link (again highlighted in yellow in the picture).

Thumbs down

Tell me about it! I have a base install of OS 10.4.8... no other programs and installed PocketMac 4.

1. My processor maxs out for no reason.
2. PocketMac won't load sometimes. Just bounce in the dock forever and never load.
3. I can't shut down my machine. I have to hold the power button for a hard shut-down.

Guess we are the beta testers for this product.

I used the Pocketmac as well and uninstalled because it kept freezing up. Is the the UPDATED version 4.0, or are they going to make a bug-free version. (or is that just a really dumb question. "Bug-Free" looks like an oxymoron)

this sounds like more of a problem with your machine than pocketmac itself... i would suggest an archive and install of MAC OS... or I would take it into the apple store since this could be a sign of a hardware problem

I found the process "pcscd" was maxing out the processor.

After search the forums I found a post:

It's job is to basically detect smart card readers and decide which drivers should be used to talk to them, then go away. afaict, it detects the internal memory of the 8100 as a unknown usb device, decides it's a smart card reader and spirals out of control when it can't find the appropriate smart card drivers for it.
I did a fresh install of the OS and had no problems... until... I installed PocketMac. Same problems.

BTW, I have a G4 12" Powerbook
