Simplify Media was released yesterday and it is FREE to the first 100,000 users, available at the app store. This was one of my favorite apps for the 1st gen software.
Let me be blunt about this STREAM YOUR iTUNES LIBRARY TO YOUR PHONE!!!!! Check it out.

I got this yesterday. I still can't get it working. My iPhone just keeps saying "connecting to libraries". . .

That's it. So, for me, so far it sucks.

They are having huge server problems right now . Mine works wifi but not on EDGE currently. It worked flawlessly on 1.1.4. They will hopefully get it ironed out this week.
More info here.

I grabbed Simplify Media in iTunes last night, but haven't tried it yet. It definitely sounds cool on paper.

Hackers did you ever get this going? It seems to be stable at the moment.

I have it working, but for some reason I can't get album art to show up. Sad

Ok, so explain the advantage of this to me...

You can stream your iTunes and therefore keep your hard-drive free of music?

I went ahead and downloaded it since it was still free, but I've yet to mess with it...

It basically allows you to stream your entire iTunes library to your iPhone or iPod touch.

I'm also having trouble. It only gives me 320 out of 2000 songs. None of these have DRM either. How do you rebuild your catalog? I can't even drag songs into the playlist. Confused

It's been working great for me since launch. I already had it set up on my mini though, as I use it to access my home library from itunes on my work imac. I love the addition of the lyrics and album art especially. It's also fun to add friends libraries and have a buddy list so-to-speak of libraries.

Not sure, but it took a few restarts of the application for it to find and/or build my entire iTunes library.

Kinda. I recently went to a National Drag Race several hours from my home. I left my machine on, iTunes and SM open and was able to stream music over edge!

Woot!

No album artwork though. . . Crying or Very sad

I have it for like 25% of my stuff now. I still can't figure out how to get it working for the rest. And I've tried just about everything.

I'm using it with an iPod touch. It's fantastic! But like others have noted, there are a few bugs here and there. In fact, there are two that I haven't heard mentioned. That would be the lyrics and artist views/pages being prematurely cutoff. Am I the only one with these issues?
