Media sync allows for synchronising photos without requiring the full-resolution originals
Palm has released an update to its web OS platform, WebOS 1.2.1, which resolves an issue where after installing the 1.2.0 webOS update some customers running Exchange 2007 could no longer synchronise with their exchange account for email, calendar, contacts, and tasks.
According to the company, it also resolves an issue preventing media sync from working with latest version of iTunes (9.0.1). Media sync now synchronises photo albums, maintaining the album structure in the Photos app.
Media sync now allows for synchronising photos without requiring the full-resolution originals. The company claims that this provides faster display of full-screen images and enables users to store more photos on the phone.
The company said that the new update also resolved an issue where if a user tried to play streaming music or video, the media stream might drop out or have a long delay before starting. In addition, this release implements several security fixes, including that it addresses a security issue encountered by webkit developers, which did not impact end users.
