A preview of the upcoming user interface

We are re-doing our user interface and wanted to share some screenshots and get some feedback early on.

Before I get to that, some of you may have noticed that we recently upgraded our icons. These icons were sent to us by Dylan Wreggelsworth, a graphic designer and the founder of Trifold Designs. He did it of his own initiative and it happened at a time where we were looking to get some professional design work put into our software and our website (yes, finally...). Naturally we got in touch with him and after a short discussion we knew he would be the right person for us. So before I show you the result of his work, I want to thank him for his wonderful design work.

And now here are the screenshots, your feedback is welcome:

Windows Mobile support is here via LobsterTunes

We have been asked many times over the course of the last two years for Windows Mobile support and so it is with great pleasure that we announce that Windows Mobile support for music is here via our partner LobsterTunes.

LobsterTunes is a very unique MP3 player, it can connect to your TVersity server while you are away from home without requiring any firewall customization. For those that are familiar with Hamachi and Yoics, LobsterTunes includes their functionality built in so you do not need to do any network configuration to have access to TVersity on the go from your Windows Mobile device.

When coupled with a fast and unlimited mobile data plan, this is a very liberating experience. You no longer need to synchronize anything, you do not need a hard drive on your music player and you do not need to do any special network configuration. Add to that the intuitive user interface and fancy album art feature that LobsterTunes has and you got one of the best ways to take your music library with you on the go.

We are also delighted that the LobsterTunes folks have created a special coupon for 25% discount (valid through February 29th of this year), exclusively for TVersity users. All you need to do is enter the coupon code "TVERSITY" on the buy/checkout page of lobstertunes.com.

So, take it for a spin and let us know what you think, we are eager to hear from you.
