TuneFeed Music Widget for Blogs

Next Story

Subscription Music Services Compared: Part 2

Tunefeed, a new service from Faces.com that will be launching soon, will allow people to upload music to a locker and then put a Flash widget on a website to allow visitors to play the music. MySpace has a limited way of doing this already, and TagWorld has a very robust service. But for those of us with normal blogs, Tunefeed could be a fun way to share music. I’m looking forward to testing this out on TechCrunch.

Sign up for the beta on the Tunefeed home page. You can also see an example of the widget there. Another cool company from Australia.

    is there any software for Nokia e51 to sync with Hotmail calendar,contacts & so on ? pls mail me

  • http://www.borfast.com Raul Pedro Santos

    I wonder how many of these “sync your e-mail contacts” and “import your contacts from your account” services sell our e-mail address books to spammers. I do believe some of them are legitimate but they always remind me of those idiotic sites that claim they can tell you who blocked you on MSN Messenger – if you give them your username and password. I mean, didn’t anyone ever told you that you DON’T give away your username and password to anyone?

    • Alexander Svensson

      Strongly agreed! Google Calendar provides a private URL for each calendar (XML and iCalendar format) — why isn’t there some software for the iPhone that uses this URL for sync. Even if it is a one-way sync to the iPhone, I’d prefer it to a service that wants what is probably my most powerful password: my Google account.

      • http://www.virtualmin.com/ Jamie Cameron

        There is – you can configure iCal on the mac to subscribe to a gMail iCalendar URL, which is then synced (read-only) to the iPhone. Two-way sync requires something like spanning sync though.

      Raul: 1) please read our privacy policy which sets out what we will and won’t do with user data. 2) users do not give us their passwords because we use OAuth (although obviously we do have access to their calendar and/or contact data).

    Nice App will it work with other cell phones..like blackberry?

  • Dias

    Ok, how do they make money?

  • http://www.solarplaza.com Johan Trip

    Ok, got to have this. Now syncing with mac calendar and then to iphone.


  • http://konolabs.com cuan

    just starting using this…thanks for a great solution..

  • Luke

    This is in their FAQ:

    How are you guys going to make money?
    We’re not certain, but probably by introducing some form of premium paid service.

    When will you introduce a premium service?
    Not in the immediate future. We want to achieve a high level of reliability, device coverage and features first. We’re not there yet.

    • Dias

      Oh, I missed that. Thank you for information.

  • http://sajadi.co.uk/dflat Khash

    I’ve been using their service on my iPhone for some time now and love it. It’s very reliable and stable. I think they were (or still are) primarily a hosting company in Montana or somewhere and make their money that way and NeuvaSync is supported by the revenue from the hosting side of the business.

  • Andrea

    A question:
    I use windows live calendar (still in beta) and a blackberry. Do you know of any ways to synchronize the two?

  • Aaron Peters

    How is this better than Soocial? http://www.soocial.com/

  • Sandman

    Nuevasync does Calendars but Soocial only does Address Books?

    • http://sajadi.co.uk/dflat Khash

      NuevaSync do contacts too

    Interestingly, Google has Google Sync — http://www.google.com/mobile/blackberry/sync.html — which solves the “give a third party your login” problem. Not sure if it works with anything other than BlackBerry, though.

    • Danny

      That only works for blackberry. Google doesn’t have a sync app for iPhone and Windows Mobile users

    • Mr. Magoober

      I just checked the Google Sync video out, and Google Sync works with iPhones, Blackberries, Windows Mobile, and the Symian platform phones

    Old news – I blogged about nuevasync back in July, and Lifehacker picked up on it soon after. I dealt can’t wait until they introduce email support!

    Posted from my iPhone.

  • http://www.schoolshift.com Dan Kalmar

    Going to try this out, hopefully it works. I’ve been using a program called gmailsync and I have been having a lot of problems with it, not sure if it’s because I’m using Windows Mobile 6.1 or not.


  • http://www.infinityball.com Ryan Rife

    I’m not sure if it’s Blackberry-only, but Google offers the same functionality in Google Sync.

    • pepe

      Only works with Blackberry.

    Awesome! I just lost all my contacts!! This is such a great app! I can’t wait to go home and put my latest backup on my phone! I wonder how much data I lost since I last backed up! Thanks for telling us about this horrible app TechCrunch!

  • http://carlton-northern.blogspot.com Carlton Northern

    Ok, I didn’t lose my data. Well, I did lose it for about 5 minutes. For about 5 minutes I had no calendar data on my iPhone or on Google Calendar. That would make a person think their data disappeared. It looks like it is all back now, so, I would actually say this is a pretty good app. It just needs to be a little more user friendly and and user-oriented. Like maybe telling the user that their data may “disappear” for a few minutes would be nice.

    • http://www.groovymarlin.com/blog Groovymarlin

      Carlton – they actually address that issue in their FAQs (http://nuevasync.com/faq.html). See the bullet entitled: “You deleted all the contacts/events from my iPhone! Why did you do that?”

      It’s an Apple “feature,” actually – Apples sync client always deletes all existing data the first time you sync. Pretty nerve-wracking, but not Nuevasync’s fault!

    • Rashaad

      Next time read the info before you jump into anything.

  • D Harris

    I’ve still not found any way to sync both my work calendar (from MS Exchange server) and my Google calendar. The iPhone allows only one sync source.

    There are options which involve a desktop piece (gcal -> outlook -> iphone or gcal -> ical -> entourage -> iphone) but nothing over the air.

    The best solution will be for Apple to allow the iPhone to sync directly to multiple calendars — including support for iCal and CalDAV standards.

  • kidd

    I have been using this for a while with my google account. Just waiting for the mail to work.

  • http://www.robloach.net Rob Loach

    This already works seemlessly with the Android G1, without any third party software.

  • http://kevin.moblast.com Kevin Leong

    Can anyone comment on Funambol? They have contacts, calender and email sync too. Funambol is open source.

  • PDitty

    Just a warning…there are multiple reports of people losing their contacts. So before you do anything I would suggest backing up your google contacts to a csv file.
    It happened to me.

    • Damien

      That was a temporary issue, that has been resolved.. They were upgrading servers. My contacts were messed up for about a day, but well worth the inconvenience for this amazing service.
