With Apple once again blocking the ability to synchronize iTunes music with Palm’s Pre and Pixi, it’s time for some of you to consider other options. I’m still happy with DoubleTwist or simple drag-and-drop methods to move music, but I noted a mention of MediaMonkey on PreCentral, which offers another option. Version 3.2 of this Windows-only software hit last week and like DoubleTwist, it boasts a fair number of supported devices. With the free version of MediaMonkey, you can sync tracks, playlists, album art and other information over to your webOS device, not to mention several brands of digital audio players, iPhone, and Android devices.
But MediaMonkey does far more than synchronize music. Tag-editing, CD ripping and conversion, track identification, playlist creation, podcatching, and reporting of your audio habits are also supported, making MediaMonkey more useful than a barrel of you-know-whats. The $19.95 Gold version adds advanced features like on-the-fly audio conversion and support for multiple music libraries, so advanced users will want to check it out. In the meantime, the free version of MediaMonkey gives webOS users on Windows another option to sync music and playlists to a Pre or Pixi.
