My Tunes Pro App Review

UPDATE: Latest version (2.1.0) removes the best feature, Manual controls of the SRS WOW sound enhancer, and replaces it with the ability to save and share your settings. This sounds like a great idea, accept that it should be an addition, not a replacement. I have no interest in sharing my tunings, and furthermore, I want the ability to tweak the sound quickly. With the new system I have to go thru the whole process of logging in online, making a new tuning, go thru a prolonged step by step process taking up several minutes of my time, without actually being able to hear the changes in realtime to my music…. no thanks…. they just ruining the only half decent feature of the app.

How to Change iTunes Store Countries and Still Update Your App’s

UPDATE: It seems that Apple has fixed this issue, as all my apps are now appearing and updating via iTunes, so hopefully this is the same for everyone else. About time Apple !

UPDATE 2: So it seems I was premature in my praise of Apple and the issue is not actually fixed (see comments). At this stage my feeling is that I can now update my app’s by taking advantage of the “bug” that allows the iPhone/iPad to still update app’s I purchase from the old country store. Looking back my Mac started updating these apps about the time I enabled wi-fi sync on those devices, so perhaps this is a possible work around ?

Are you moving country?

Did you buy a whole heap of apps in your old countries iTunes store ?
Then you probably know the pain that many others are suffering.
Due to some crazy “un-apple” like reason you cannot update those app’s in your new country. The most frustrating thing is that iTunes will recognize when there is an update and tell you, but when you hit the update button, you get a nice screen telling you that all your apps are unto date… yet a notification badge will appear on you app’s menu bar, telling you other wise.
The most frustrating thing is that you have no idea which app needs updating.
You like most will then contact Apple support, which will then give you the silly work around of login back into your original country, changing all your credit card details and information back to exactly how they were before you moved, and then updating. Lets not even mention the fact that this may not be possible if you cancelled your old bank account. Read More…
