Ratings and Reviews
RESTART IPOD to get audio!!
I bought this app to use my ipod touch headphones to hear my computer audio, instead of my bluetooth headset, which only has a ten foot range. I downloaded the desktop app, installed and configured everything exactly as directed, and got connection just fine. the little blue icon blinks confirming that the computer is picking up the headset mic just fine- BUT WAS GETTING NO SOUND TO MY IPOD HEADPHONES at all, despite them being selected in my audio preferences pane, and as the audio device in my media player.
I restarted my computer; this didn't help. THEN I RESTARTED THE IPOD, and BAM, there's my audio!
(please add instruction to restart ipod to the online supprt FAQ!)
Does exactly what it says and it's only $2!
Only slight issue is that there is an occasional stutter with music streaming with it if your network has high activity. It sounds absolutely fantastic and is entirely worth it given the quality of microphones that Apple put in their devices (find me a computer microphone that sounds as great for only $2)
Overall the people that are giving bad reviews of it seem to be complaining about it not working on Mac OS X, on Windows it is perfect though!
DOES work on LION!
It in the app description, it reads that it only works in 32bit Mac. However, OS X Lion and up run on 64bit by default. First check your processor (Intel Core 2 Duo and up). Change to 32bit by restarting your mac and holding the #2 and #3 keys at the startup.
There is a latency issue though. When I'm on Skype, people will comment that I sound muffled and it takes like ten seconds for them to receive what I actually said.
