Pod to PC Updated

The Pod to PC program itself has now had its icon updated.  First time users may also find the program slightly less confusing as the progam's language selection pop-ups have been adjusted. The FAQs section has also been updated.

Dynamic RSS Added to Homepage

The RSS feed has now been dynamically linked to the Pod to PC home page.  During the rest of the week, equivilent updates on the other myPod Apps pages will be made too. Why is this important?  It will take me significantly less time to post an updated and there for I can spend more time writing apps.

The To-Do List

There are a bunch of apps that I have planned.  To learn more, click on this article's title. Pod Photo Transfer (Windows only) Pod to Mac Pod to PC Pod Playlist Builder (Mac/Win) Meta-Pod Recovery (Mac/Win) iPod-to-iPod Transfer (Mac/Win) Pod Video Converter

itDJ (Mac) 0.9.5 (Beta-Release)

Big addition: Playback Recorder. It's under Tools in the menu bar. Set the file name, choose a sample rate, and hit record. You can also have it automatically stop after a given number of minutes, or choose to have it split into multiple files. Currently supports wav, aac, ogg, and flac (mp3, m4a, etc. coming soon). About a 20% reduction in CPU usage. "Beat" button. If you aren't happy with the automatically detected beat marks for a track, then start it playing. Tap the Beat button to each beat (quarter notes, eighth notes, whatever works for you), and the whole track's beats will be updated to match. Some visual improvements. Pan knob (next to the hi/mid/lo knobs). Several bugs fixed, including a few crash bugs.

itDJ (Mac) 0.9.4 (Beta-Release)

Another step towards itDJ 1.0. Big addition here: Snippit Maker! Go to Tools->Snippit Maker. Drag tracks from your library, set effects, the select and grab a piece (or two or 100). Play around with the options. When you're done, you can save as a WAV, OGG, or FLAC (MP3 etc. support coming soon). By the way, this is one of those things that will see many, many improvements over time, both before and after 1.0, so send your comments our way. Also, beat positions are saved after the first time, so tracks will finish reloading much faster.
