PlayBWF allows users to preview the BWF audio data without the need of any expensive software solution. The OS X application supports mono BWF and stereo BWF-P files. PlayBWF also extracts the meta data of the BWF file header and displays data like starting timecode of the file, scene, take, notes etc. The timecode is calculated based on the user-defined framerate.

Baig says comparing the iPod to the Neuros is like comparing a "triple-A prospect next to Texas Rangers' shortstop Alex Rodriguez." Baig says the iPod "outclasses every other portable player [...] in style, speed and simplicity."
