Pocket Tunes 5.0 Sync feature enhanced
As you would've noticed from Sammy's post just few days ago, NormSoft has released a newer version of the award acclaimed Pocket Tunes, or pTunes in short.
Pocket Tunes™ 5.0 for Windows Mobile and Palm OS smartphones includes new features for subscribing to podcasts, scrobbling™ with Last.fm, synchronizing with iTunes, and listening to Internet radio using Windows Media Audio (WMA).
Version 5.0 increases the breadth of supported audio content and integrates with two of the most popular music related applications, iTunes and Last.fm. Users can now subscribe to their favorite podcasts and have them automatically download directly to their phone. With the searchable catalog of over 1,000 popular podcasts, finding and enjoying podcasts is easy and fun.
Every time a song is played it can be tracked to the listener’s Last.fm music profile – this is called scrobbling. Owners can also automatically synchronize playlists of songs from iTunes to their phone when it is connected to their computer.
For you who have used pTunes with your Windows Mobile devices such as Treo 750, Treo 800w & Treo Pro; pTunes Sync feature is a very handy tool. And for Palm OS users, this feature is completely new in the newest version. It now transfers album art from iTunes and has better playlist management. Items deleted from a playlist on your PC are deleted from the device the next time you sync, allowing you to manage the device contents through the playlist syncing.
For previous owners of older version, you can get the upgrade at great price: only at $19.95, just follow this link. For the full list of new features in pTunes v5.0 you can read all about them at its website, aside from the the new features you can read my review of the previous version of pTunes at this link.
