What's new in this version:
- Updated this: CK's Text-to-Speech DJ for iTunes or iPod 0.16.app
- Previously, this was named " DJ Track Names to MP3 0.14.app."
- Added the capability to directly work with playlists on an iPod.
- Changed this to create the DJ files using AAC, since it's designed to work with iTunes and iPods, there seemed to be no reason to use the more universally usable MP3 format.
- Added in 2 "option" screens.
