Pod to PC -

Pod to PC includes minor UI updates.

Safari for Windows Installs a Bad DLL

The Windows versions of iPhone Explorer and Phone Disk rely upon a few DLLs created by Apple and typically installed with iTunes. A recent update to Safari for Windows installs a new CoreFoundation.dll which, when certain functions are called by iPhone Explorer or Phone Disk, result in a crash as a result of a debugging user-breakpoint left in by the developers at Apple. Because this DLL is shared between various other Apple programs, it's very difficult to revert back to the previous verion of the DLL.

If you've already installed the Safari update, then iPhone Explorer and Phone Disk aren't going to be able to access the app directories until Apple gets around to updating that DLL again. If you haven't yet installed the updated Safari for Windows, than we recommend waiting a couple months for the next version which will hopefully be more stable.

Dupe Away (PC) 2.004

Dupe Away 2.004 is mostly an optimization on the developer side that won't be noticed much by end-users, but squashes a few bugs and includes a new splash screen. Note that the .NET 4 framework is now required, which will be automatically installed if necessary during the Dupe Away setup process.

iPhone Explorer (Mac) -

iPhone Explorer includes significant improvements to back-end functionality of the program and various bug fixes.

itDJ (Mac) 0.9.7 (Beta-Release)

Next step towards the big 1.0...

New in 0.9.7:

  • Central panel now has a Synthesizer panel (loop your own sequence, notes or chords)
  • Backbone for MIDI controller support has been put in. The debut device that is supported: the Hercules DJ Console RMX. Check the tab in Preferences to get it connected.
  • Volume is allowed to get much higher, but you can also set how loud to allow, and how you want itDJ to keep that limit.
  • Various bug fixes.
  • Adapter (Mac) 1.0 is here!!!!!!!!!

    We've spent a large part of the last 6 months overhauling Adapter (Mac) to finally take it out of beta. Building a conversion utility that is user friendly, powerful and loaded with features has been one of the biggest challenges for us in the development of Adapter. Between the last release of Adapter (Mac) and this one, we've completely overhauled the user interface about three times and rewrote the vast majority of the back-end code. And now, today, we are happy to introduce to you the ultimate image, audio and video converter.

    We've added many new features including time cropping, a crash reporter, custom resolution settings, custom output quailty settings but the crown jewel is the new flash video downloader. Adapter now comes with a an easy to use web browser and anytime it sees a flash video or audio file, it automatically downloads it. You can then right-click the flash file and send it for conversion to an audio or video file which can then be imported to iTunes or sent elsewhere.

    This new update of Adapter is loaded with new features and functionality and we believe that it may now well be the best media converter available for Mac. But, with that said, we're not stopping yet so keep checking for updates and keep sending us feedback!

    (And, yea. It's still 100% freeware).
