    Question Desktop manager?

    Don't know if this has been asked before (but I'm sure it has), is there any sort of a "Desktop Manager" for Android (specifically the Droid), just like the one used for BB?

    Thanks.

    Yep Motorola Media Link



    Edit: It won't sync your contacts ect. It's just for Media however you can back up contacts, calender, etc. using Google Sync from your handheld.
    Hope this helps.

    Not that I know of. There are various file managers available that run on the Droid but there's nothing that runs on a PC or Mac that performs the functions of the Desktop Manager on BB or iTunes on the iPhone (synch contacts, music, apps, etc).

    Edit: looks like YoungChrisG beat me to it! I'll have to give Media Link a look.

    I use this program from the market called astro file manager. It backs up your phone on the sd card. You can schedule a backup daily, weekly, or monthly I believe. It backsup apps, contacts, media, etc. right from your phone. Thats another alternative.

    That sounds even better!!

    Another question.. has anyone here tried this:


    Looks great. The only thing that I can't find is any support for 2.0 . Or will any version do for Android?
    Sorry for the n00b questions... still rather new to what Android has to offer.

    Technically it should be updated to 2.0 but some apps do work for the most part even if they haven't been updated.

    Mark/Space is also working on a DM type solution called Missing Sync. It doesn't work with the Droid yet, but they promise that support is coming soon.



    Free beta right now, $40 when ver. 1.0 is available (I believe later this month).

    It is PC only now.

    I read on their forum that it might add Mac version in the future.
