Information Appliance Associates has released ppcTunes, the first ever tool to automatically copy and convert music from Apple’s iTunes music service to Windows Mobile Pocket PCs and Smartphones.
Until this application was created, Pocket PC users who run Windows on their PCs had no way to sync their iTunes playlists to their handhelds.
In addition, ppcTunes gives users the option to convert MP3s into WMA files, and then copy these to the handheld. WMA files can be half the size MP3s.
This application can store music in either the handheld’s internal memory or on a memory card.
ppcTunes also includes “Sync on Connect,” allowing users to make sure every time they connect their handheld to their PC, ppcTunes will run and copy their music automatically. “Playlist Select” lets users choose which playlists get synched every time.
ppcTunes retails for $9.95.
More information about ppcTunes can be found on the Information Appliance Associates web site.
This company is best known as the developer of PocketMac, which allows users of Macintosh computers to synchronize information with a Windows Mobile devices.
