    I still think PocketTunes is ridiculously overpriced. It should be closer to $20 than $40.

    Ahhhhhgggggghhhhhhh!!!!!!

    They finally add the ONE feature I have always wanted and would actually shell out the upgrade price for --syncing with iTunes-- and it's for WM Only!?! {Hook smacking Normsoft folks smilie}

    Sheesh. I suppose I should be happy as probably this means it will be coming for Palm. And I guess it makes sense that since they were doing a new build for a new OS, they would start with the new feature there, but still. Palm is how they got where they are.

    Sorry, just had to vent.

    Pocket tunes is overpriced, but excellant. No single feature had me closer to going to a Centro from my Q. (I still use my TX for Reading and wi-fi, though)
