SuperSync 2.4 released
SuperSync has released the v2.4 update to its self-titled software, used to manage multiple iTunes libraries across multiple computers and iPods. The update adds several significant features, most notably the saving of user-created metadata, such as groupings, play counts, and volume and EQ adjustments. Supported custom video metadata now includes series and episode numbers, as well as type, whether movie, TV show or music video.
A new iPod reader has been added, which copies music, videos and playists off of iPods; users can additionally save files from remote libraries. The interface, meanwhile, has been improved with new sorting and duplicate identification options, and now flags local tracks in gray, remote ones in blue, and synched ones in green. Finally, audio formats have been expanded to incorporate Ogg Vorbis and M4R (ringtones). A two-computer SuperSync license costs $30.
