I don't think there is a DM for the Mac. You can download PocketMac which will let you add and delete applications and sync information. There's also another BB-Mac syncing application, the name of which escapes me at the moment.

PocketMac works very nicely for me except there are some weirdnesses when transferring contacts (like email addresses disappearing when there's more than one) but I think that's a well-known problem with the program.

Yeah... you'll find that PocketMac does Sync but does not install applications like the PC desktop manager. It works nicely though.

That's incorrect, you can install apps using PocketMac fine.

Hm. I don't actually use a Macintosh but my friend whom usually has no problems with these sorts of things couldn't figure out how to install programs and was getting frustrated with it. Later he came to the conclusion that it wasn't supported. I now see on the PocketMac website that they clearly say it supports 3rd party installation. I apologize!

Thanks for the correction.

It's quite simple, Launch pocketMac, ensure BlackBerry is highlighted then from the menu it's Utilities | Install Software to Device or Utilities | Uninstall Software from Device. Not had any problems with it yet

Haha sounds simple enough. I'll let him know. He hasn't invested in a data plan yet and keeps whining about software installs. Thanks again.

Yes, I installed JiveTalk using PocketMac.

I believe a much older version didn't install apps but it works very nicely now.
