Default [Q] Is there a working version of HTC Sync Manager on Mac for the One X ?

Hi there !

Pretty much all my problem lies in the title : is there a version of HTC Sync Manager that works on Mac computers for the One X ?

Everywhere the documentation seems to say yes ("[...] for PC and Mac", "download the .dmg file", etc.), but on the official site i can't find a link to the reffered .dmg file, neither it is on my phone, and when I ask the support where I can find the file mentionned, they answer me : "To use HTC Sync on Mac, please install Dualboot and Windows, then install HTC Sync Manager"

I managed to find a Mac version of the software somewhere on xda-developers for others version of HTC, but my phone still isn't recognized by the application.

So... anyone here managed to get that one working ? I know there exists other free (or not) applications that can do the same, but I kinda liked it on first sight on my PC. I tried SyncMate but even though my contacts were originally freshly updated it wanted to delete about 48 of my contacts and modify 20 others

Thanks in advance for your time !

I was going to look for HTC Sync for the MAC but will hold off for now, you could install Parallels Desktop then Windows 7 which allows you to run Windows 7 within the MAC OS no need for a Dual boot then.

I don't think I would be able to access my OSX Address Book that way either.

I used to do it quite simply with my 'old' Sony Ericsson W995 and the iSync application. Finding out it couldn't work that way with my One X still makes me sad

I'm having the exact same problem! I was an iPhone user since 2007 and always used iTunes to sync data. This is my first Android and I totally love it but its sad I can't get it to sync with my Mac. When I connected my One X to my Windows PC and set it to HTC Sync mode on the phone, the HTC Sync program begins to install but when I do it on my Mac, it says the device isn't recognised.

What's good with HTC Sync is that it's free too. I don't think I want to pay 40$ to try an application

The site says the software is coming soon. So lets hope that it actually is coming soon and will allow the playback of protected content like it states it will!!

http://www.htc.com/www/help/htc-one-x/ -- at the bottom -- Note: Download and install HTC Sync Manager, when available, from our website. Or in the meantime, download and use the latest version of HTC Sync to sync your media and data.

And I always thought HTC Sync and HTC Sync Manager were the same thing...

Thank you for that eye opening revelation. Hopefully we won't have to wait too long !

I am on the same boat too, used iphone for 4 years now decided to change to HTC. But looks like HTC is not quite Apple friendly. I have a macbook so no way i wana bootcamp window and sync from window.

HTC really need to get this Sync Manager ASAP for mac users otherwise they will lose some clients as new iphone coming soon.
