How many times have you experienced the frustration of manually syncing files, folders and other data on a regular basis between two or more computers or mobile devices? It can involve the laborious task of dragging and dropping files onto a flash drive and copying them to another computer, or most often forgetting to sync files when you need them most. Well, Eltima Software’s SyncMate is one of the best solutions for syncing your Mac with multiple devices, automatically and simultaneously.

SyncMate helps you to synchronize Macs with Macs, Macs with Windows Mobile devices, Macs with your Google account, Macs with Nokia Series 40 phones, Macs with USB drives, Macs with Windows PCs, Macs with PSPs or all at once. This week, we’ll be giving away 25 licenses for SyncMate 3 Expert Edition worth almost $1000 in total.

Sync Your Macs

You may already know you can share the contents of two or more Macs using the built-in sharing feature found in Mac OS X, but SyncMate takes sharing data well beyond the features Apple provides.

By installing SyncMate on two or more Macs, you get many of the same capabilities for syncing data that we Apple MobileMe users pay an annual membership fee for. As with MobileMe, you can sync all or selected data from your Address Book, iCal, ToDos and Mail notes, Safari Bookmarks, as well as Entourage notes.

But get this — unlike with MobileMe, you can set up SyncMate to automatically sync all or selected files in your iTunes and iPhoto library, as well selected folders in Finder. This saves you the task of dragging and dropping files from one computer to another. And with SyncMate’s Expert Edition, iPhoto files are resized as they are synced from one computer to another.

SyncMate goes a step further. You can actually sync files and folders in real time on the same network, without having to click a single button.

And of course, you can apply settings for auto-syncing to occur when another Mac or device is available, at specified time intervals or when SyncMate is hidden or in the background. SyncMate also works with a slew of mobile devices, including Nokia S40, Windows Mobile, and Android phones. In an upcoming update, SyncMate will add the iPhone to the mix of mobile devices that can be synced to.

Signing up for a special online account, you can also sync selected files on Etima’s online server, making your data accessible anytime from any Mac with SyncMate installed. You can of course encrypt and protect this data with a password for safety purposes.

Expert Edition

While the free version of SyncMate has several useful features, the Expert Edition provides you over dozen more, including syncing Firefox bookmarks, time synchronization, iTunes video synchronization, Stickies and Entourage notes synchronization, data encryption, and much more.

Finally, although SyncMate is a Mac application, you can also sync data with Windows PC.

SyncMate is a perfect, time saving solution to keeping your computers and devices in sync without the hassle of doing it all manually.

    Rob, do know that iPhoto has sharing built-in sharing feature for sharing iPhoto libraries on the same network? The only other alternative I know about is to use MobileMe galleries, but that cost like $99 per year—or cheaper if you buy it on Amazon.

    I have been looking for SOMETHING that can help me share Iphoto albums between multiple Macs. Really hope I get chosen for this!

      Yeah, Rob, it works with iPhoto, but it appears that it doesn’t sync smart albums. Only regular albums. Good luck in being chosen.
