What is iSyncr 4.0?
iSyncr 4.0 is my latest revision of our popular Android <-> iTunes syncing application.
What changed with 4.0?
First and foremost, iSyncr 4.0 combines USB and WiFi into one easy to use application. Secondly, iSyncr 4.0 includes a refreshing new interface that follows the latest Android guidelines. Lastly, iSyncr 4.0 includes numerous bug fixes and improvements.
Why the new update?
The reason for this update is largely because we believe this will give our new and existing users a much better syncing experience. Syncing over USB and WiFi allows those who have a large iTunes library the speed to update over USB and those who want to make incremental changes to the library sync easily and quickly over WiFi.
Won't combining iSyncr and iSyncr WiFi take up more space on my Android device?
Not really, in fact, iSyncr 4.0 saves space on your Android device if you used iSyncr WiFi Add-On before.
What are some of the other new features?
- Slicker ICS notifications when WiFi syncing. I think we've found a good balance between being informative and annoying with this update.
- You can now view a WiFi Sync Log, to see exactly what happened during your last sync. Great for finding out what happened while you were doing something more fun then syncing!
- In the settings, you now have the ability to force the Android device to rescan for media. This keeps you from having to download a third party application if your device fails to find new songs.
- These new features also come along with WiFi features users have already enjoyed like automatically uploading new photo's and video's from their device and setting a synchronization interval or daily sync time.
How about older devices?
Unfortunately, in order to move forward with our latest design we are no longer supporting Android 1.5, 1.6 and 2.0.
We haven't made a big deal about it, but we rolled out support for MTP (a USB protocol) over a year ago. At the time, only Android tablets supported MTP. Now most new phones use MTP, so we just want to point out that we support MTP on these new phones and tablets while other syncing solutions lag behind.
