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

    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. :rolleyes:

    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)
