The developer behind BlackBerry Desktop Manager for Mac has published extensive documentation for the must-have app, saying release of the software is “just around the corner”.

BlackBerry Desktop Manager for Mac lets BlackBerry owners sync various kinds of content with their Macs, including music in some cases.

Various improvements in this release include support for syncing with multiple computers, and the capacity to choose where to store any required music or media files (on an SD card, on the phone’s internal memory, etc).

Within the Device Options menu, users can choose whether their BlackBerry smartphone should be backed-up automatically and what data should be included in the backup file.

Users can sync their BlackBerry smartphone with the iCal application, Address Book, Apple Mail (for notes) and any other software that can talk to Apple’s Sync Services. For example, to sync with Microsoft® Entourage users simply need to check the option to sync with Sync Services in Entourage preferences.

“Because sync is one of the most important features in this release of BlackBerry Desktop Software, our focus was on making it rock solid with an intuitive set up,” the developer writes. “We wanted to ensure users have all the key options and information when setting up their sync preferences, while at the same time keeping the interface clean and simple. For this reason, all information categories are listed on the left, and the right panel reflects the settings for each category. The alternative of having everything on the same page and listed sequentially seemed a bit cluttered to us.”

If you are a Mac user with a BlackBerry, now may be a good time to sign up to be notified when the new software is released on www.blackberry.com/mac.
