SuperSync 3.1 ships
Built-in web access has been added in SuperSync 3.1, a major update to the music hub software. SuperSync allows users to track music across multiple computers and music libraries, with options to move, sync and update track and metadata info across each library. Version 3.1 makes it possible to access and remotely play music from a home library on an iPhone or a remote computer, using a new password-protected web server. The server has two web interfaces, one optimized for the iPhone and one geared toward Flash-enabled browsers. The new web server uses AJAX, generating a web page that shows playlists, artists, albums, and genres, with a search function that can be used to find specific tracks.
The update offers a library rescan feature for relocating old tracks or finding tracks that were just added. A duplicate finder automatically locates duplicate tracks with modified metadata tags.
SuperSync 3.1 requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later and it works with Windows machines as well. Multi-pack licenses cost $30 for a two-pack, $40 for a five-pack and $60 for a 10-pack. For Tuesday only, all three packs are on sale for $25, $33 and $40 respectively.
