Smith Micro Software's Consumer Group Launches TuneRanger for Multi-Computer Media Management

Jan 02, 2008
Automatically Synchronize and Streamline Music, Videos, Podcasts and Playlists

ALISO VIEJO, CA - Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI) Consumer Group today announced the latest edition to their expanding portfolio with the launch of TuneRanger for Macs and PCs. TuneRanger works with iTunes to aid those with multiple computers or iPods in managing and maintaining their growing media libraries by filling holes, purging duplicate files, propagating new additions to licensed devices, and finding lost songs.

TuneRanger offers direct support for iTunes on both Macs and PCs, as well as iPods, and enables the synchronization of libraries over multiple machines and across many platforms. TuneRanger's powerful options and easy-to-use tools dramatically streamline the process of updating multiple devices and locating and adding media files, while using smart logic to filter duplicates and unlicensed music.

"Chances are you keep your iTunes music and video collection on more than one computer, so you already know how hard it is to keep them all up-to-date," said David Polzine, Director of Utility and Productivity Solutions for Smith Micro Software's Consumer Group, "Add a family to the mix and the task is virtually impossible to control, but with TuneRanger, you can manage all your iTunes-running computers on any network and synchronize music, videos and playlists with the click of a button. Album covers, lyrics and all other changes are updated seamlessly, while misplaced songs are located, un-owned copies purged and duplicates removed - always keeping only the best quality copy."

Over time, it's not unusual for iTunes and iPod libraries to accumulate duplicate songs and faulty links. TuneRanger fixes these issues and optimizes even the largest iTunes libraries automatically with its powerful optimization tools, including an automated duplicate manager, an orphan file remover, tools to remove unlicensed songs, adding or removing disconnected files and a utility to copy album art from the iTunes database to the actual music files, making the album art portable and accessible to other music managers and players. The software also works across platforms, letting iTunes on Windows communicate and synchronize with iTunes on Mac, or vice-versa.

Pricing, Availability and Requirements

The MSRP for TuneRanger is $29.99. The application is available at the Smith Micro web store at or at popular retailers, catalogs and distribution partners worldwide.

System Requirements

Mac OS 10.4 or higher with iTunes and/or Windows XP or Vista with iTunes. TuneRanger includes a license to install it on up to four computers running any combination of supported Macs and PCs. While TuneRanger is compatible with any iPod, the ability to change files directly on an iPod requires the iPod to support the "disk use" option in iTunes.
