[prMac.com] FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Oakland, Ca - January 14, 2008 - SuperSync today shipped SuperSync 2.1, personal music library synchronization software. SuperSync lets music fans synchronize their personal music collections between their Mac and PC computers over any network.
Version 2.1 adds user playlist and folder synchronization to SuperSync's iTunes library synchronization application. Playlists are created by a user and contain a number of tracks that are played in order. Now users can effortlessly move their playlists and the songs they contain from one computer to another.
The free trial version of SuperSync 2.1 has been expanded to let users experience more SuperSync features. Trial users can now send, get and receive any 25 tracks from a second SuperSync media library. Restarting the program will reset the transfer limits. An unlimited number of playlists can be synchronized using the trial, and the demo now includes the full library rescanning tool to check your library for missing, modified, and new tracks.
SuperSync 2.1 includes a new icon and look. The new icon uses the three primary colors of SuperSync, blue, gray, and green, that represent the colors of local, remote, and synchronized tracks.

How SuperSync Works:
SuperSync lets users synchronize their iTunes libraries between multiple computers over a home network or the Internet. With SuperSync, music fans can retrieve songs from a laptop, play or download songs from a home computer while at the office, upload new music from the road, or back-up their entire music library to another computer or disk drive.
When the SuperSync application is started, the user is presented with a list of tracks that are currently in their iTunes library. When a second "remote" library is opened, those tracks are overlaid on the main screen. The user can than select tracks to upload to the remote library, or download to their own library. As this two-way synchronization takes place, the new tracks are automatically added to iTunes with your ratings and played counts restored.
Pricing, Availability, and System Requirements:
SuperSync is available today on both Mac OS X and Windows, with at least 512M RAM recommended. For Internet WAN access, a UPnP-enabled router is recommended for automatic port-forwarding setup.
For an individual synchronizing or remotely accessing their personal music libraries, a copy of SuperSync is required for each computer. SuperSync is priced at US$29 for a 2-machine license. Family licenses are available for US$39 per 5-pack, and US$59 per 10-pack.
Licenses can be used interchangeably between Mac OS X and Windows machines.
