Finetune Desktop preview

The Finetune digital music service is bringing its catalog of two million tracks from major and indie labels to Mac and Windows desktops, ramping up competition with Apple's iTunes software via customizable playlists. Finetune today released a preview version of Finetune Desktop, one of the first applications built on the alpha release of Adobe's Apollo application runtime. Users can launch Web applications directly from the desktop, without the need to open a Web browser. Finetune allows users to create custom playlists, and can tap into iTunes libraries to automatically generate playlists based on library content. Finetune is available for free, and integrates several aspects of a social network to help users discover new music (system requirements were unavailable).

    Apollo? Hmm...

    I was going to give it a try, especially to check out the social networking aspects, but having to download Adobe's Apollo, well, I don't know...

    I tried it only get 30 sc

    I tried it and I only got 30 second previews of songs even though I filled a complete playlist which is supposed to be 45 songs. Tech support says that shouldn't happen but I'm afraid it did. Could be a bug on there server but I can get 30 second previews from iTunes right now without having to load other software.

    Don't bother with this.

    You only get 30 second demos not full songs. Stick with iTunes as this doesn't work.
