Windows: Migo for iPod free trial available

PowerHouse Technologies has released a 15-day trial version of Migo for iPod. “Use Migo for iPod to view your personal email, files, browser settings, desktop and more,” explains the company. “With one click, your desktop is displayed, allowing you to work on the computer as if it were your own. When you return to your own computer, changes are automatically updated. Stop emailing files to yourself. Don’t worry about remembering which version of a file you have, or keeping two computers in sync. Migo for iPod gives you have everything you need just the way you want it.” Migo requires a 4G iPod or iPod mini and Windows 2000/XP.

I work for the publisher of this software.  Please use the coupon code ipodlounge to get $30 off. 

Dbster, I’ll email you directly to find out what is going wrong for you.

It’s a sign of Apple’s market penetration that all these PC only apps are coming out for the iPod.  Kind of frustrating for those with Mac formatted iPods though.

Chris—

Awesome, thanks for the $30 coupon code! 

Migo looks great, even though I’m a Mac user, and I’m still waiting for the elusive “Home on iPod” functionality.  :-(

Why will it not work on the 3g’s??

Yeah, from the way it looks, it is just using the iPod as an external drive to store the software on. It seems to me like you should be able to use any iPod version or even a simple USB flash thumb drive. No?

It won’t work on the 3Gs because in disk mode, it kills the battery in about 10 min.  With the 4G and above, iPod charges through the USB port, which makes for a good user experience.  You technically *can* use it with 3G iPods, just make sure you have it powered whenever you use it.  The 2G iPods don’t seem to work reliably at all with the software - delayed write failures were happening very frequently.  Regarding using the software on any device, that’s not possible at this time, as we’ve tied the software to the iPod’s device strings.  Since each memory device behaves slightly differently, we want to go with established, reliable hardware.  We can consider other devices in the future.
