It's a while back that I reviewed Pocketwerks' Vinyl for Pocket PCs and Jason - over at Pocket PC Thoughts - posted good news from Pocketwerks:
"Vinyl was designed from the ground up to take advantage of your digital music collection. With Vinyl you can remotely navigate and control the playback of your digital media collection from your Pocket PC via a beautiful user interface that features album cover art throughout."
"Originally we charged for Vinyl, but Vinyl was a labor of love and more than anything we would like all Pocket PC owners using it. Individuals are welcome to use the unlimited fully functional free version of Vinyl, but all private installers, hardware OEMs, and VARs should contact Pocketwerks Marketing to find out about enterprise licensing plans."
The Vinyl software package consists of two applications, one designed to run on your Windows PC, and the second on your Pocket PC. VinylServer is the PC application which runs in the system tray of your desktop PC and indexes as well as plays the music from your music collection. Vinyl is the Pocket PC application that provides various views of your music collection with robust playback and playlist support, all rendered in an easy to use interface.
Just a few of the possible scenarios for using Vinyl include:
Create a playlist on your Pocket PC and listen to it playing on your computer speakers while at work or play.
Connect your PC soundcard to your home stereo system and choose from the hundreds of songs living on your PC to be played during a party or while just relaxing at home. Pass your wireless enabled Pocket PC around and let your friends add their favorites to your playlist.
Connect a small FM transmitter or music transmitter to your PC, and use Vinyl on your Pocket PC to choose your music that is now accessible in every room of your house.
Vinyl works with every kind of Pocket PC/PC connection from ActiveSync/cradle to LAN to W-LAN and even with GPRS I was able to get it working!
