Ha, So as some of you may or may not know, In the very rare free time I have I like to code a little bit of software. One of those pieces of software is called Canto Pod which puts lyrics on to iPods.

Anyway, I was checking out Cnet today and I noticed that it was listed there, but I never even submitted it. Then, I was even more suprised to see this!

Its pretty nice to see that you know? Anyway, anyone know if this type of stuff will do any good on my college applications why im applying?

Oh and Ive yet to make a penny with all this, maybe I need a business manager :-P

Yes- you need a business manager!

EDIT: I second jimsowden - if this is PC only, go mac!

If you put it on a college app, make sure to mention that it was a Download.com Editor's Pick.

Great work! Of course put that on your resume. And a mac version
would be nice.

Absolutely mention it in your application, post a link, include the picture. Admission people love stuff like that.

For school, only if your going to into something with computers....
Wrong! Include this information regardless of what you think you will be studying. In fact, the farther away, the better. "Wow, he wants to study music history, and he can do some programming?? ACCEPT!" It shows you're well-rounded.

Thanks for all the praise guys. Been working the past couple of weeks on a new version of this badboy as well as getting a new logo for the site.

Again though as I said, if anyone would be interested in developing a mac version of this, then by all means, please pm me or respond in this thread. There is nothing I would like more then to have a version that would run on OSX. That would be way cool.

The downloads from download.com have doubled since I posted this thread.

Still though, I dont really a see a way of making money haha.

There is a MAC version of iLyric or something that got in trouble for this. I think that is ludicrous, but you know how things work.
