Not yet. Just displays "buffering" and never actually starts playing.

Looks interesting.

Can't wait to get home to try it out.

I hope they added Reverb, Echo, etc effects like in GSPlayer for WM.

They claim to have improved audio quality; really curious to see to what extent.

AAC lovin'

Wow, I never thought they'd pony up the money for AAC licensing!

Price. No wonder they can afford AAC.

I don't know about you guys but I find $37.95USD too expensive.

Should be 19.95$ for Deluxe.

No screen blanking for the Zodiac

twrock @ 12/16/2006 4:41:53 AM # Q
This new version will not activate screen blanking for the Zodiac. Version 3 worked fine. Wonder why they changed thing?

So far I have found no way to get the screen to turn off and have pTunes still play music. If anyone comes up with something before NormSoft provides a fix, please post it for the rest of us.

I'm still waiting for the mythical color HandEra.

On the Treo 650, I just hit the red phone button, and the screen turns off fine. Maybe it's a Zodiac thing?

(Yes, it is definitely a Zodiac thing)

Ok, I got a response from NormSoft. Sorry all you Zodiac users. Looks like pTunes 3.1.8 is what you are stuck with.

Here's the reply from NormSoft:

I'm sorry to say that, because the Zodiac is not longer being sold or
supported by Tapwave (which has gone out of business), we were not able
to retain support for screen blanking on this device.

Pocket Tunes 3.1.8 works well on the Zodiac, so I would recommend going
back to that version if you wish to continue using the screen turn-off

Let me know if there's anything else I can help with.

When responding, please reply to this message (leaving the case # in
the subject line) rather than starting a new message.

Take care,

I just tried v4

VampireLestat @ 12/17/2006 8:51:47 PM # Q
I am very impressed.

Gorgeous new graphical interface.
And seems to me the sound is better; has more pure bass.

I hope the TX2 gets rid of the soundchip's white noise. What causes that anyways? Cheap chips or overamplification?

I wonder if someone could program a white noise neutralizer, like they use on airplanes. It would listen to your device's white noise then play a track of noise to neutralize it. hmm
