[prMac.com] FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Oakland, Ca - January 29, 2008 - SuperSync today shipped SuperSync 2.2, personal music library synchronization software. SuperSync lets music fans synchronize their personal music collections between their Mac and PC computers over any network.
Version 2.2 improves upon user playlist synchronization with a new iPod import feature. Now, users can retrieve tracks and playlists from their iPod, even when the iPod is associated with another computer.
With SuperSync, any two music libraries can be compared and merged, with new files automatically added to a user's iTunes library.
Version 2.2 also fixes a number of small bugs affecting 2.1. Bugs fixed include a "help" bug affecting some OS-X Leopard users. The OS-X icon has been upgraded to high-resolution 128x128 icon for the dock.
Version 2.2 is a free upgrade for all users.
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. A color scheme makes it easy to identify local (gray), remote (blue) and synchronized (green) tracks.
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. All licensed copies of SuperSync include unlimited library sizes, advanced library rescan, a basic music player, and free product updates. Additional information, including the SuperSync demo is available from the SuperSync website.
