* WMA Lossless and WMA Professional are not currently supported.  WMA playback requires the Deluxe version and is not available in the trial.

** Music stores that we have tested include: Napster, Real Rhapsody, Yahoo! Music Engine.  Pocket Tunes supports both subscription and purchased content.

*** Some applications may have excessive CPU or storage requirements and may cause music playback to skip when performing certain operations.  We go to great lengths to minimize this as much as possible.  Devices with slow processors or hard disks are especially susceptible due to hardware restrictions.


Important note about Windows Media Player 11 beta: We are aware of several problems with Windows Media Player 11 beta that causes synchronization with Pocket Tunes to work incorrectly in many cases. We ask that all customers refrain from updating to Windows Media Player 11 until we have added it to our compatibility statement.
