Please Login to Remove!

how can i download 3rd party software when i have a mac. i love pockectmac but it doesn't offer bb users the same options as they do pocket pc users who can use their software to download 3rd party software. i have a powerbook 12" and virtual pc 7 but when i use virtual pc the computer does see the device connected via usb. any mac users solve this issue yet?

For now unless you have access to a PC itself that's about it. I've worked with PocketMac solutions for years and I have to give a thumbs up to their development team. The current release of PocketMac is just that a first release which I'm sure they'll build upon. I would imagine a loader feature is in the works already.

I gave the VPC option a try not to long ago and like every other release it was painfully slow and a resouce hog to boot! With some intuitive fiddling I did get the USB working but it was inconsistant and I ended up ditching it as VPC was just to slow to work with.
