    Question Any way to sync BB Tasks/Memos with Mac?

    Hi folks,

    sorry if this question already has a thread, but I googled for way too long and didn't find any answer. My question is - Is there any way to sync BlackBerry tasks and/or Memos with Mac?

    The best option would be using the native apps on both BlackBerry and OS X Mountain Lion etc. via Google, but I couldn't figure out how to set it up, so I'm open to all of your ideas. I have already tried thirdparty services like Wunderlist, but the Mac app seems to have a bug - it overheats my Mac to 90C everytime I have that app running. Do you know any other GTD tools that support both Mac and BlackBerry?

    Thanks in advance!

    If Upvise still exists, I would try them, they used to have a service for about 50/Year as well as a free version. I used to hear MAC users talk about this service.

    You can do this using BB Desktop Manager, it's under the sync options. I always select two-way sync for it. Hope this helps.

    You can take a look at SyncMate - it alows syncing stickies and To Do on Mac with BB phones. Detailed information can be found at their website. Do not forget to test free edition to check if your device can be connected to Mac and synced with SyncMate (free edition allows syncing contacts and calendars).

    Sorry, I forgot to mention, that I prefer wireless sync. I'd like to add a new task on my BlackBerry and see it later when I start working at my computer or viceversa add a task on my Mac and review what has to be done on the Bold.

    @Alex: Thanks for your tip, will definitely try it out.

    If I am not wrong then Google syncs your tasks too. Why not use google service for all your calendar, contacts and tasks

    @chaihg: That's what I would like too, I always prefer native apps instead of installing thirdparty for every feature, but I don't know how to set up tasks sync with Google on BlackBerry and Mac. I've created some tasks via the web interface and activated tasks sync in accounts settings on my Mac, but nothing happens. On BlackBerry I can't even find that option.

    @Alex: Just checked SyncMate, on the main page they say that I can get the expert edition for a "small fee", but since when is almost 40 bucks a small fee?! The free version only syncs calendar, which I already do for free via the native mail app on BlackBerry...

    SOLVED:

    So after a long research I have found a solution - you can use ToodleDo on your Mac (or PC or browser, they have plenty of plugins) and TaskJot to access tasks from your BlackBerry. It's not able to sync with the native task app on BB, but at least it works. If you guys find any better solution, feel free to share it.

    P.S.: I've also tried trial version of Pocket Informant, but looks like it can't sync via BIS only + developers officially stopped support of the BlackBerry app (wonder why they didn't stop collecting money from BB users on App World ).
