MONTGOMERY, Alabama (March 22, 2005) - LAJ Design is pleased to announced the immediate availability of version 1.0.1 of MaxPod. MaxPod is a cross-platform application that helps you to maximize what your iPod can do.

"The iPod gives a great platform for music listening, but it can do so many other functions", says Luke Jackson, head programmer at LAJ Design. "With MaxPod, we are trying to automate as much of that functionality as possible. Right now it can sync files between your hard drive and iPod. It can download the news and weather into audio files that you can listen to on your iPod. It can organize your notes, your music, and get directions. I use it every day. I just set the auto mode to 5:50 AM and by the time I am ready to go, it has backed up and synced my files, downloaded the news and weather, which I listen to on the way to work."

New in Version 1.0.1


* Added in version checking so you can stay up to date
* Changed to delete from iTunes before copying the new daily files over.
* Support for voices options from Cepstral

For the full list, please see the new section on our website.



MaxPod is designed to maximize the use of your iPod. The iPod can serve great as an external hard drive. It can also display notes, which comes in very handy. MaxPod takes the core functions and adds a few more.

1. Download the news to audio files and listen on your iPod
2. Download the weather to an audio file and listen on your iPod
3. Backup your music files
4. Backup and sync your documents and folders using your iPod
5. Download directions as notes and save to audio files
6. Add/modify/backup notes, maps, and lyrics on your ipod

It also has an auto mode, which automates some of the tasks. So you can set it to sync your files, get the news and weather, and be ready to go when you leave in the morning.
