Martian SlingShot 2.03

Martian Technology has released SlingShot 2.0.3, an update to its file and music synchronization application for Mac OS X. SlingShot 2.0.3 fixes several bugs related to synchronizing music in iTunes 7 between computers connected over a network. SlingShot allows users to easily back up all of your important (and costly) music and to share it among all the computers they own: unlike the "iPod reverse sync" now supported by Apple, SlingShot allows you to synchronize all of your music--not just songs purchased from the iTunes Music Store. Users can Publish an iTunes Playlist of music onto the network and then Subscribe to the Playlist from other computers. SlingShot 2.0.3 is available as a Universal Binary, supporting both PowerPC- and Intel-based Macs and requires Mac OS X 10.4. Version 2.0.3 is a free upgrade for existing customers; new licenses are $30.

SlingShot will automatically copy over any songs from the Published Playlist that aren't in the Subcriber's iTunes Library, add them to the Library, and then recreate the Playlist on the Subscriber. In addition, it will check periodically to see if the Playlist has been changed; any changes will be reflected in the Subscriber's copy of the Playlist.

SlingShot can also keep files in sync between two or more Macs. By incorporating Apple's "Bonjour" technology, SlingShot makes finding and connecting to other computers on a network easy. "With SlingShot it is easier than ever to share and back up your files and music collection on all the Macs you use," the company said.
