MP3tunes Upgrades Music Sync Software

San Diego-based MP3tunes, the online music storage service started by former founder Michael Robertson, said Thursday afternoon that it has enhanced the company's LockerSync software. The company said that the software says that the software replaces the firm's prior Oboe 2.0 sync software, improves CPU efficiency, and adds scheduling of music uploads, tagging of music and playlists, and an expanded number of playback devices. MP3tunes provides an online web site which allows users to share copies of their digital music libraries, and either stream those files to a web browser or mobile devices; the company offers both free and premium versions of the service, with the premium services adding streaming to additional devices and home stereo appliances.
