In a response to Musicmatch’s recent warning about iTunes incompatibility, Red Chair Software, developers of Anapod Explorer, have posted a statement on its website which refutes Musicmatch’s suggestion that iTunes is sabotaging its software.

“The e-mail seems to imply that iTunes sabotages MusicMatch by “deleting critical files,” and some in the iPod community have speculated on whether Apple may be trying to hinder MusicMatch now that iTunes is available for Windows.

Based on our development work with our own iPod management software, Anapod Explorer, we do not believe that Apple intentionally tried to hinder third party software, nor does iTunes delete any “critical files” necessary to properly manage the iPod.”
