    @NetMage, thanks for the feedback! this is just the first version, and those are exactly the types of features we planning to add.

    Are you tryin to connect through Edge or Wifi? My understanding is you can only use this app with a Wifi connection.

    My connection is wifi,everything works in my computer,shows the files in itunes and the Symplify box.
    But my iphone don't connect to the server,I try unistall and install but It does not ask for a name and password,just go to "connecting" and comes back "cannot connect to server.
    Is there any way for the app to ask you again for password and name?

    I am still working with Paul to try to resolve the issue. I just sent him my log so he can see why it is I can't connect on the iPhone. Simplify Media on my computer is working great, it's just the iPhone that won't connect.

    Ok, mine is working now. I worked with Paul over at Simplify (very nice people BTW!) and this is what you should do, delete this file


    Then launch the app again and put your username and password in again. It should work.

    Hmmm, okay I checked the option for iTunes playlist sharing.

    But I don't see a playlist on the iPhone - only all my songs.
    Have you playlists shown up now?

    @NetMage, thanks for the feedback! this is just the first version, and those are exactly the types of features we planning to add.
    Glad to see development/support on the forums. Really looking forward to the improvements

    Looks great, and I plan on installing it, but how do people post their libraries for you to load, and a suggestion for the future, make the all songs area sorted by letter...

    @chrisperro, iTunes (and Winamp for the PC and, soon, rhythmbox and banshee on Linux) is only used for playback on that computer. Letís say all of your music is on a media server, you donít even need a player installed to enjoy from that computer on your iPhone. Just Simplify Media, which must be running.

    @agl917, we agree. sort (and jump to a letter) would make All Songs more userful.

    @NetMage, thanks!

    @Jodie and chrisperro, thank you for helping us find a bug

    For the curious, we neglect to trim trailing spaces after your screen name and password if you enter one by accident on the iPhone. When we send the information to our authentication server, the authentication server throws an error because of the space and the connection times out. If your credentials were just wrong, you would be prompted that your login failed, but in this case we donít do that.

    Weíll fix this quickly, but, for now, donít enter a space after your user name If you get a canít connect message over and over again, as Jodie suggests delete this file:


    I think everyone is up and running now (including meagain). Lgreenberg still has a playlist problem, but it isnít iPhone-related and hopefully we can track that down soon too. Weíll continue to read MMi, but if you have any trouble drop us an email to make sure we see it. Thanks again!

    Awesome, this is a great app! I am a musician, and am often at practice wanting to show a certain song and don't have it with me, although its on my home computer. SimplifyMedia has already come in handy - being able to whip out the iPhone and log on to my home computer and play a song. Good times. Thanks, Paul.

    Has anyone else tried this with a fairly large iTunes library (>25000 titles) and found it takes a very long time to build the index?

    @listenclose, it is audio only (for now). But, it can play the mp3, aac, wma and apple lossless files on your PC or Mac. Shortly we'll have a linux version too.

    @soulflow, wifi only (for now). We've designed it to work with EDGE as well, but there are still a number of bugs to work out.

    @Dave, my home library is 10K songs, and we have users with collections as big as yours. It does take a while to build the song list the first time (and it is inconvenient that playlists aren't shown for a particular computer until this completes). However, after that, we store the list and processing updates is much faster.
