Sync Kinoma Play to iTunes with Salling Media
On my computer, you will find nary a sign of any Apple software as iTunes stopped being a "neat" app about, I dunno, 4 years ago.
But for those of you who still load that behemoth and want to sync with your trusty Kinoma Play on WinMo (see update), looks like your dream is now a reality due to some third-party freeware by Salling Software.
According to Kinoma, which is officially supporting this method, Salling Media Sync "...automatically identifies phones running Kinoma Play and syncs all the audio formats that Kinoma Play supports."
The app is "free" for basic use but will cost ya' $22 beans for you heavy sync'ers and those wanting faster sync times (I'd imagine that would be everyone?). Hey, if the Pre can do it, so can WinMo. Hmph!
Update: Looks like Kinoma has rolled out a small update from previous v5.1.46 to v5.1.48.
Mostly looks like a "cleaning up" update after the big one just recently, as this tidies up some naming conventions, UI interaction, G-sensor adjustments and just general patches. It also seems to be a bit speedier, though I still have to wait 2-4 seconds to go back to the launcher on my Treo Pro. Hmm.
Other changes include:
- More Home shortcuts — The last released introduced a super-convenient shortcut that lets you go Home just by holding the Center key on your 5-way. Now, you can press-and-hold the Back button as well.
- Live365 — The “More” now works correctly for stations listings and presets, and we fixed an issue where audio scrobbling didn’t work for everyone.
- Facebook Media — We updated the terminology to match the current Facebook style (i.e. “What are you thinking?”).
- Get Apps — We improved the way screen shots appear on screen to make your eyes happier.
- Improved press-and-hold feedback — Now when you press-and-hold on lists and grids to bring up the menu pod, a nifty icon appears to show when you’ve pressed long enough. Didn’t mean to do that? Just drag the screen to continue doing what you were doing.
