TuneRanger beta released
Acertant has released a new beta of TuneRanger network sync for iTunes and iPod. The tool connects all of a user's iTunes-running computers together over any network. Music, video, and playlists can then be synchronized and merged. Buy a song on any computer, add an album cover or lyrics, and all changes are updated everywhere. The new release includes general reliability, network discovery, and speed improvements. It also adopts Apple's Bonjour network discovery on both Mac and Windows. Using Bonjour, TuneRanger will now auto-discover other TuneRanger-running computers on larger more complex networks. "Track #" has also been added as a top level comparison key. This was added to resolve false duplicate issues with some classical music collections that use the same song name within an album and differentiate songs only by track number. The software is priced at $30.
