Pocket Tunes for Tungsten T released
While many still await the ability to listen to mp3's on their Tungsten T's; another audio program that supports the open source Ogg/Vorbis format, has been released. Pocket Tunes 1.1, from NormSoft, supports ARM-Native Ogg Vorbis decoding, customizable skins, playlists, wav files and more.
Ogg/Vorbis is a new open source audio format. It is comparible to other audio formats such as the popular mp3, but is completely free, open source and unpatented. Ogg Vorbis has been designed to completely replace all proprietary, patented audio formats. It claims better quality sound than mp3 at smaller file sizes.
PocketTunes, can decode Ogg Vorbis and wav files in real time without any skips or delays and has a high resolution skinnable interface. The display can be shut off to conserve battery power and the player can be controlled using the Tungsten T’s five-way navigator.
PocketTunes can be purchased now for $5.00 (until the end of the 2002; regular price $14.95), you will get a free upgrade to the next major version (when available) and free technical support for one year. It requires a Palm Tungsten T and a memory expansion card to store audio files.
