Prosoft unveils Jax

Prosoft Engineering today unveiled Jax (site not updated), its iPod enhancement utility, and promised to offer a sneak peek at the software for visitors of the Macworld Conference & Expo in San Francisco through January 12th. Jax features more than a dozen built-in options, and allows users to add more as they are developed. Jax includes configurable visualizers to manage lyrics and find songs in a library that contain specific phrases or words. The software also helps manage album art, enabling users to select alternative images with higher resolution or different graphics. Jax users have access to point-to-point directions, current weather forecasts, favorite stock quotes, movie listings, and local gas prices. The software also provides local news from preferred news readers, all recently-received email messages, and favorite documents. Items are downloadable to the iPod as text or as spoken words as tracks in MP3 format. Jax also allows users to directly download videos from YouTube, Google Video, and desired QuickTime movies. Prosoft will release Jax in early February (pricing was unavailable). Prosoft also announced that its Data Backup software is included with hard drive solutions by both Other World Computing (OWC) and NewerTech.

    Life2Go?

    i wonder if this has anything to do with the announcement by Kainjow software that Life2Go--a similar iPod enhancement app--has been discontinued?
