Great idea to place a dead link to the Tiger version here.

iTunes 9 has broken Mojo 3.4.1 somewhat. Music remains visible but Movies are blank.
Developers are offline and the download link is dead.

They've been absent for MONTHS. Not sure what's going on, but it does not look promising.

I love this app. It simply does what it supposed to do… share music. I can wirelessly share my Library to my wife and daughter on their PC. And the PC build of Mojo let's them browse at their leisure. This is one of those apps that I update immediately when I see one's available.

As far as stability, I have not seen a crash in almost a year now. Great work!

Concept is there, pirce is there, stability is not. This app crashes evertime i use it. Even if it is idle it will crash. This means the code is poorly executed and not well organized. The developer needs to rewrite this app from the ground up. If stability gets fixed, this will have a place in my dock

Tried Mojo for a few days and a few friends now, it's wonderful. No crashes, not a CPU hog... But a memory hog! I've had it open for a little over a day and it's at 942MB! Two friends' windows open.

Needs bandwidth control and perhaps SOCKS5 support... very nice in the meantime however

Brilliant description of a could-be product. Here's the sad reality...

MacUpdate is for Mac users only. Sadly, there are not that many Mac users as compared to PC users today. Hopefully one day the Mac users will overpower, but for now that's the reality.

Out of all of my friends (plenty) there are only 2 others that use a Mac. So let's assume they get Mojo. I'm sharing files with my 2 friends. I hate to be realistic - but this is not very exciting.

Also, being a professional musician, I'd like to say - yess, the RIAA are a bunch of @$$ clowns. However, downloading music for free is unfortunately illegal. So if this product wasn't freeware, I'd say the developer would be due for a warrant.

So let's be honest with each other -- this cute program looks nice, has good intentions, but has been rated with one star for a reason. Time to stop beating a dead horse and move on to a better solution.

Oh yes, I suppose we should levy this criticism at ALL Mac-only sharing apps. Phooey. I enjoy having an improved user experience in OS X and it doesn't stop here. Get your friends to switch instead of whining about it.

In response to the post below:

A stumbling block? Have you given any thought to what this application does? Allow me to enlighten you:

In the beginning, there was Napster. Everyone downloaded music from everyone else, and it all worked through a central server. But the server was shut down, and napster was no more. Then came gnutella in it's various incarnations such as Limewire, Bearshare, etc. This was a decentralized version of napster, where everyone connected to a few other random users, and they were connected to a few other random users, and on down the line. This was very cool until the music industry started to corrupt the system. Now half the "people" you connect to are RIAA computers, dishing out fake results, and music files filled with static. In addition, they monitor traffic on these networks and attempt to sue hundreds of users a week!

Enter Maestro. It's a revolutionary, responsible and safe way to share music. It works just like people have been sharing music for decades: by sharing with your friends. Think about it. Do you share similar music tastes with your friends? Are you ever been introduced to new music from your friends? Do you ever tell your friends about a new band you like, or swap CD's with your buddies? This is a digital extension of the way music sharing has been working since before CD's. It's much more responsible than simply sharing your mp3's with the entire Internet. And it's safer! The RIAA won't be looking at your iTunes library, and when you download songs from others you're downloading songs from trusted sources.

You said there's no way to find other users. How do you find friends in iChat? And would you really want hundreds of unknown people trying to connect to your iTunes library anyways?

There's a lot more under the hood of this application as well. You can automatically connect to other users on your local network. And it uses jabber to provide decentralization. You can even subscribe to your friends' playlists, and have songs downloaded for you automatically!

Downloaded and tried it. Big stumbling block is the fact that you have to know the other users' addresses before you can even begin browsing, let alone sharing. And how do you find other Maestro users???????? Enlighten me somebody.

This is a great little program. I recently bought a friends and family license package (6 total) and have gotten several iTunes systems online and talking to each other. It's very easy to set up, and their online video tutorials answered all but a few of my questions. My emails to the developer were responded to within a day. All in all, I'm very impressed.

Sounds like a winner, but just a question.
Does the one you want to share music with also have to be in possession of Maestro? or is it enough to activate the sharing option in iTunes to see their playlists?

If manually choosing the music is too much work, try using the playlist subscriptions. Choose any playlist to subscribe to, and Mojo will automatically download and update the latest changes to that playlist anytime the other user is online.
