pwntunesPwnTunes is a new jailbreak app that allows you to manage your iPhone media library without iTunes. On the paper, this application looks great for people like me who cannot stand iTunes.

I say “on the paper” because I haven’t tried this PwnTunes myself. I guess the $12.99 price tag turns me off, but also the fact that you can only manage your media library (music, movies, etc…). From what I understand, you’re not able to manage applications, thus still leaving you somewhat dependent to iTunes.

The good thing about PwnTunes is that it makes it very easy to manage your music or other media files. Simply by connecting your iPhone to any PC, you can browse the file explorer to drag and drop your media files.

The big benefit of PwnTunes is that you can for example import music from your friend’s PC without losing music already on your iPhone. You can as easily export your music to your friend’s computer.

PwnTunes is for Windows only. Although it does look like a great application, I think it’s a bit too pricey at $12.99. Make it a $4.99 app and I’m sure it will get much more popularity.

Have you tried this PwnTunes? What’s your take on it?

    This does looks cool. I installed the app through Cydia as it let me install it without paying, I thought I was getting it for free. Once I had it installed my app Wi-Fi Sync stopped working. It seems that they conflict. I just went in and uninstalled PwnTunes.

    I tried this app through a friend of mine and I really don’t like it. I mean, is a great new way of adding music so don’t get me wrong but I just don’t like it for one thing. You can’t add album artwork to your music unlike iTunes. I’m a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to my music. I like to have everything included in my music….for example, artist name, album name…artwork….and year of the album…etc..etc. I don’t know why anyone would hate usually itunes because is simple to use and if you know what you’re doing with you iPhone/iPod Touch….you should be worry about losing any applications or anything like that.

    For the all the newbees….I’m sorry if I hurt your feelings…I just pick up on things a little quicker than most….I’m SORRY!!…So don’t go and post 25 comments saying how “MEAN” I am and how you guys just don’t understand things and I should just “Lay off” of you guys……

    Sebastien….GREAT WORK!!…Keep more of this kind of stuff coming!!

      you are a retard if you are sorry for being an ass

  • Burge

    12.99 not a chance !!!! And iTunes is so simple to use

  • Endz

    i still used the openSSH, its free but alot tedious at first, but once u know how it’s pretty simple ^_^

  • Bart

    It sounds wonderfull but 12,99 is way to much, I agree with Endz you always can use openSSH.

  • Luke

    I dont see any problem with iTunes

  • Burge

    Just reread this post again and I still can’t belive what I’ve read …… Windows only……

  • Alex

    It just sounds like this is great for someone that doesn’t pay attention to what their doing and keeps on upgrading their firmware and keeps losing their jailbreak/unlock. iTunes works just fine and if you’re getting pissed off at itunes for asking you to upgrade to 3.1.3…well there’s an app for that…well not really but there is a mod for that called fake 3.1.3 in cydia that tricks apps along with itunes in to thinking that you’re on firmware 3.1.3. All and all, the price is too much and I think the quote “if it ain’t broken, don’t fix” quote goes just right with this app.

    I like it for a simple reason. I work at a place that has Apple restricted. So it’s been almost impossible to keep my Music Libraries at home and work sync’d. Without iTunes connecting to Apple, I am unable to do anything at work. This program fixed that for me. I can transfer music between both work and home pretty easily.

    It actually works well. The only missing part is being able to manipulate Playlists. So I have been using the Music On-The-Go feature on my iPhone.

    IT IS FOR THE MONEY WE DONT PAY THAT WE LIKE THE JAILBREAKING..ECT
    GIVING YOURSELF THE OPPORTUNITY TO BEAT DOWN APPLE AND GET RICH SELLING YOUR STUFF ITS NOT FAIR…ITS LIKE, YOU WILL COME IN MY SHOP AND SELL YOUR THINGS…LOL NO WAY FUCK YOU GUYS!

  • Yeah, I really do agree that this new application PwnTunes looks like a great application but its price tag is way too high for my interest. Personally I think as Sebastian said if the price was lowered to around $4-5 a lot more interest would be taken in this application. I am still dwindling at the thought of having to pay almost $13 for the application.

  • Awesome Post,

    I really like the concept of your post, so please keep it up with your posts.

    Thanks

    I like the software. I cant believe all over the web that people are crying over $12.00. Over the course of a year, thats like what??? Less than 4 cents. Im comfortable with iTunes and know it well, but I gave an iPhone 3G I did a jailbreak on and giving it to a young cousin out of state. Id much rather trust her with drag and drop methods versus iTunes telling you to update all the time, threatening to wipe out your current library, etc.

  • Josh

    Yeh I downloaded pwntunes.. Can’t seem to drop music onto my iPhone, but can take it from my phone without a problem, don’t know if it’s because I haven’t paid for it yet but when I do figure it out I’m sure this will be up in the top 5 add ons to my phone… Always had this problem with my old iPods where I always wanted my friends music without deleting the existing music.. Top idea 🙂

  • Ruelo71

    Still could not make it to work on my Jailbroken iphone, everytime I save the mp3’s in my music folder it will lose it as soon as I hit iPod.

  • Rottenpie

    Here’s my conundrum. If I buy this app. Hypothetically speaking. I DL it. Plug my iPhone 4 into my computer. I can drag my music on my phone to the computer?…the only question I have
