The new version of PocketTunes brings various new things – TamsPalm will take a look at it.
One of the new features is the possibility to use the services of last.fm with pTunes.
(What is last.fm? last.fm is a online radio and music community – more information has Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Last.fm)

The configuration is easy: via “Tools” =>”last.fm” the settings dialog opens:

pt5 133x200 PocketTunes 5   whats new? (1)

Here one has to enter username + password and enable “Enable Scrobbling” – now last.fm support is activated. But be careful: enabling the last.fm funtion requires a network connection so that pTunes can submit the played songs immediately – submitting later won’t work.
An other new feature is the support of WMA streams. I’ve tested the new function with the local radiostation of Dortmund: Radio 91.2: it worked really great:

After entering the URL (picture) pTunes connected, buffered and started playing:

A difference to MP3 streaming is not noticable – you won’t notice if you’re listening a MP3 or WMA stream.

Additional new features will follow in the next part of the review – stay tuned!
