I purchased this software a couple weeks ago after having tested the demo. I used it with my Sony Ericsson W810i. The demo worked fine but the full version kept crashing after loading about 60 songs onto my memory stick. I contacted the developer three times, both through the web site and email with no response. Use this software at your own risk. Nobody will answer your emails and with this kind of support I wouldn't bet on any upgrades or bug fixes.

This app has worked great for me for over 6 months. It does what it says and makes using my K750i with my Mac awesome. I regularly keep a movie or two loaded on it for those times when I'm bored and just have my phone.

I'd give it a higher rating but I recently upgraded my Mac and the old serial number in my original receipt will no longer work. I've sent 4 emails to 3 different addresses in the last 4 weeks with 0 responses.

Shortly after posting earlier, I got a response from the developer. Glad to know they're still around as I do think this is a great app. And Again, I would have given it much higher marks if the response time from the developer was a little faster. Thanks!

I paid for this last week (21.3.06) and still haven't even received my serial number. It worked fine w/ the 10 songs or whatever, but I have sent 4 emails & left 2 voicemail numbers. I would like to actually use the software I paid for.

I still regularly look into this app, because it looks so nice. But it still does not work properly...

I am sorry for rating this app again, but i still felt the rating was inflated.

For the reasons stated below: this piece of software DOES NOY WORK and the developer DOES NOT REPOND to e-mail.

Conclusion: don't be as stupid as I was and DON'T BUY tis piece of *insert favourite 4-letter word here*.

I just want to correct the star rating I gave, beceuse a beautiful 5 star interface is worth nothing when the software is not working, and has inflated the rating i gave. (MU: an overall rating might be a good option to prevent this)

On my 'slow' 1Ghz Powerbook G4, transcoding takes several hours.

This would not really be a problem, if transcoding could be disabled, but this app wants to transcode everything it puts on my w800i.

I really prefer the original 192 kbps songs if this makes the difference between 25 mins or 250 (!) mins transfer time.

Worse even: this app totally crashes your memory stick while unplugged during transfer. Transfers cannot be stopped. So you must wait about 5 hours before you can take your phone with you again, because itherwise you will have to reformat your memory stick and you lose all data on it.

I contacted the author, but he has not answered my e-mail from a few weeks ago, and the app, with this bug, has not been updated since september.

Unusable unless you have a really fast G5/Pentium mac.
Those without will have to make-do with iTuneMyWalkman, even though Dreamsicle is far more elegant. We can only hope that this app will be updated.

I paid for this and it is a waste of money.

For the dev: (if he looks here instread oif checking his inbox)
- please fix the dataloss bug
- make the 'do not transcode' option work, so no transcoding will happen
- suggestion: make a 'prepare for phone' option, that transcodes while away and transfers the transcoded songs the phone in a few minutes. So i can go to university and have 512 mb of songs waiting for me when i come home.

The k750 grabber thats included in this download is no longer necessary as tiger 10.4.2 supports k750 without having a kernel panic when disconnecting the USB cable.

Btw, Dreamsicle is incredibly slow for some with my k750i reason (trial mode?), it generates a ton of unwanted folders and frankly it should be free.

Strangely enough it sees all my mp3's as mpeg, resulting in a conversionproces which isn't necessary. No problems with AAC files.

This programm has potential. If I'm still using it after a week or two I'll consider buying a license.

I am using the Sonyericsson K750i and it would be nice if the icon reflects the image of my phone instead of the W800.

Nice programm.
