    What is PwnTunes?
    from the makers of iRealSMS
    PwnTunes - iPhone Drag&Drop Music Import without iTunes - Home

    It's a new way to sync your Music & More without the use of iTunes!

    As we all know there are many many different MP3 players out there but the Apple iPod Touch & iPhone have dominated the market as the best media player around!
    But even though we all love the device, many of us hate the restrictive iTunes system lockdown on our music and files. Your tied down to syncing your device with only your home PC or you run the risk of losing everything on your iPhone or Touch.

    Why can't you just plug it into any PC as you can do with just about every other mp3 player in the world!?


    With PwnTunes It's as easy as plugging your sync cable into your Windows PC.
    Then it's as simple as browsing your file explorer to copy your files from your iPhone/Touch to your PC. or you can drag items from the PC to your iPhone/Touch!
    drag, drop & go!

    What can you do:
    • Drag pictures from your camera roll to any PC
    • Drag Music from your iTunes synced music library to any PC
      • music files are translated from the encoded gibberish file names into a user friendly list based on the original file name as it would be on your PC
    • Add music from any PC to your device & it will automatically import into your iPod app.
      • ID3 tags from MP3 & M4A files will also import track info and album art
      • support for tags from other music types not yet supported
    • Drag and save any type of file(images, videos, documents, spreadsheets, etc) onto your device to use it as a USB drive!

    • WINDOWS XP**
    • WINDOWS 7


    **fix included for xp users

    Any plans for a Mac version? Does it require specific software/drivers on the computer or can I just go plug it into any computer and browse it? Can it get access to the root partition?

    Only xp requires the installation of driver reassignment.
    And yes you can plug into any pc and gain access to files. But only the ones we have specified. For what the app was designed for.

    Put it this way. The app has been in production for 6 months. We know for s fact it works. And works very well as we have had a private beta team on it for quite some time. This is actually better worded as a Pre-Release. Granted no new ones are found then this is the official release.
    And as an added plus Your getting a cheaper rate on the full license.
    It's better than a free beta that expires then requesting full price right?

    If your perfectly happy with iTunes then this app is not for you.

    But if you enjoy the freedom of simply going to any computer... being your friends or your own and dragging music from the file explorer to your iPhone or iPod Touch device and having it easily copy and sync seamlessly to your iPod application... then this is for you.

    If you have songs on your device that you want to copy over to another computer with the simple drag on drop concept... free of itunes... then this app is for you.

    if you want to use your iPhone or Touch as a USB flash drive... then this app is for you.

    if you dont like it... then what can I say... its not for you.

    I like the idea of using it as a flash drive. What computers would this work on, would it mount as a regular drive? Would it work on mac just for the mounting, or is this just for Vista and 7 as far as the plug and play goes? Can it access the root partition? Will this be available for the 4.0 if it's jailbreakable?

    so what is the price in USD?? is the price per device or pc? or one size fits all??its a great idea and I was just thinking about something like this a few weeks ago cause of all the crap apple is pulling on use with their updates but it will depend on the questions I asked. if it is reasonable then we will buy it just like we do apps but if not well then..............

    never mind on the price I figured it out. it is approx $8.72 usd

    Right now only works with pc. Windows 7, vista and xp
    No access to root. But does act as a USB drive allowing you to drop and save items to misc folder.

    If purchased via cydia you can use on all your iDevces synced to your cydia account. IPad support should be coming soon as well.
