Joesoft ships Jax
Joesoft has released its third software product, Jax. Its functions include loading YouTube videos into iTunes, where they can be synched with an iPod, iPhone, or Apple TV. Users can also copy items like news, directions and movie listings onto a device, either as a text file or converted into audio. Music however is the focus of Jax, which will hunt down album art, and allow users to pick international covers where available. Lyrics can be requested as well, in turn giving the ability to search for songs with particular word combinations. New visualizers are added, and Music Map guides users through connections between bands, musicians and songs. Jax costs $50, and is a Univeral Binary for Mac OS X 10.4; also required are iTunes 6.4 and a broadband Internet connection.
