iTunes Sync included with CHIP Magazine

September 21, 2007

A couple of months ago I was approached by someone at CHIP magazine in Germany, wondering if they can include iTunes Sync in their October 2007 issue. Of course I said yes. Well, the magazine is out, and sure enough, it's right there on the DVD included with the magazine!

CHIP Magazine October 2007 iTunes Sync (Cover)  CHIP Magazine October 2007 iTunes Sync (Article)

iTunes Sync has been linked to many times, but this is the first time I have seen it in writing... and I've got to say, it feels pretty good. Apparently CHIP magazine has 1.4 million subscribers as well, so what a great feeling this is. Thanks to everyone who helped test iTunes Sync, and to everyone who submitted bugs and feature requests. And an especially big thanks to my team of translators who localized iTunes Sync into German and Spanish. Even though the localized version (v1.5) wasn't included with the magazine, anyone that installs the copy from the magazine will be prompted to update to the version that includes localization.

Also, I'd like to thank CHIP magazine for sending me a copy of this months issue. I can't make out what the write-up about iTunes Sync says exactly, but I ran it through Google Translate and it seems to be positive.

Thanks Everyone!

September 17, 2007

I have built and released the latest version of DisplayFusion, version 1.3. This updated release contains a few quick fixes, and adds some extra functionality:

  • Added: New hotkey to centre the window and size it to 100% (basically maximized without actually maximizing it)
  • Added: Option to watch if any other programs (or computer policies) change your wallpaper, then prompt you to restore it
  • Added: Option to search Flickr images by Group name/description as well, not just by a Person's name
  • Changed: Moved the folder that web images get saved to from AppData to the "My Pictures" folder for easier access
  • Changed: Changed the default filenames of web images from random IDs to the image's title for easier access

For the complete list change of changes take a look at the Change Log.

iTunes Sync v1.5 Released

September 12, 2007

iTunes Sync v1.5 has just been released onto that wild party known as the internet... and it's the biggest release to date. It includes a whole heap of changes, including some exciting new additions. Let's jump right in and starting chatting about the biggest change of all: localization. With some fantastic help from 6 fearless volunteers we have localized iTunes Sync into these 3 languages:

  • Deutsch: Georg Madler, Jurgen Hardt, Philipp Klingler, Thiemo Scherle
  • English
  • Espanol: Hugo Gomez Mac Gregor, Nicolas Pierri

Also included in the Change Log are these exciting additions:

  • 3 new File Extensions: wma, wmv and asf
  • 4 new Folder Structures that include the Playlist name as a prefix
  • Proxy settings for connecting to the internet (auto-updating)
  • Reduced the memory usage
  • Better handling of duplicate playlists - it now shows you which playlist names are duplicated

This is only about half of all the changes, fixes and additions. If you want to see everything that has changed please check out the complete Change Log.

DisplayFusion v1.2.1 Released

September 11, 2007

I have released a quick update to DisplayFusion tonight that corrects a couple of smalls bugs. The first fix helps people who had their wallpaper offset incorrectly, causing gaps in the wallpaper. The second was something I forgot to include in the initial release, proxy settings for internet access (auto-update, Flickr images... etc). Well, you can now configure a proxy server in the "Settings" window.

Languages, Sprachen, Idiomas

September 9, 2007

What a journey it has been localizing iTunes Sync for different languages. It was originally built with only English in mind, but with the intent of eventually supporting other languages. What a surprise I got when I received the resource files for Spanish and German. Many of the words and phrases were longer than the English equivalents and the interface could no longer fit many of the labels or buttons. As a result, I was forced to change the layout quite considerably on many of the windows, including the Sync and Confirm Sync windows. I think the new layout is more concise and much easier to follow, so it has worked out for the best. I have learned quite a bit while localizing iTunes Sync, things I never could have learned from a book or in a classroom. It has been an excellent learning experience and I can't wait to get iTunes Sync v1.5 out the door so that everyone can benefit. I want to give a big shout out to everyone who has helped so far with the translations, and what better way then with the new "About" screen.

iTunes Sync v1.5 is coming very soon...

I'm excited to announce the release of DisplayFusion v1.1! This new version fixes a few bugs, and introduces a cool new feature as well: integrated Flickr searching! When you are selecting an image to apply to each monitor as your wallpaper, just click the "Load from Flickr" button, and you have access to every image on Flickr, right at your fingertips. Just search using keywords, or list all images from a specific person if you know their name or email address.

iTunes Sync: 20,000 Downloads and Counting

August 17, 2007

Sometime around the middle of this week iTunes Sync passed the 20,000 download mark. Hurray! When I wrote this application just over 2 months ago, I did so because I wanted to use iTunes with my cheap-o MP3 player. When I posted iTunes Sync for others to download I had no idea there were as many people in the same situation as me. Well, it turns out there are, as iTunes Sync has been averaging over 340 downloads per day, with a steady stream of email and forum feedback to match. Thanks to everyone who has submitted bug reports, feedback, suggestions and to everyone who contributed to the tested MP3 player's list. You've all helped to make iTunes Sync what it is today!

Cheers!

August 15, 2007

I have posted a new version of Clipboard Text Scrubber. This is a quick bug fix release, to clear up a couple of small issues. Here's a rundown on the changes:

  • Fixed a bug that would cause the "Clear Clipboard" menu option to not do anything
  • Fixed a bug that would cause an infinite loop (Thanks to Carsten on the Forum for finding this bug)
  • Changed the icons (again) to something with more contrast

I recommend that anyone using an older version of Clipboard Text Scrubber update to the latest version today.
