MaxPod 1.1 maximize the use of your iPod
MONTGOMERY, Alabama (July 27, 2005) – LAJ Design is pleased to announced the
immediate availability of version 1.1.0 of MaxPod. This version sports a new
program design, adds podcast support (both to download podcasts and to
create podcast RSS files). You can also create audio files from more places
now in the program (such as maps, weather).
MaxPod is a cross-platform application that helps you to maximize what your
iPod can do.
“The iPod gives a great platform for music listening, but it can do so many
other functions”, says Luke Jackson, head programmer at LAJ Design. “With
MaxPod, we are trying to automate as much of that functionality as possible.
Right now it can sync files between your hard drive and iPod. It can
download the news and weather into audio files that you can listen to on
your iPod. It can organize your notes, your music, and get directions. I use
it every day. I just set the auto mode to 5:50 AM and by the time I am ready
to go, it has backed up and synced my files, downloaded the news and
weather, which I listen to on the way to work.”
