"Great batchy functionality"
Installed on Win7. No problems. All I did was convert a variety of non-iPad-compatible files (and formats) to MP4. Some needed to be rotated. So, I configured a bunch of files to run vanilla, and a bunch to be rotated. All of these files were in a single list within the app. I kicked off the conversion and watched it for a little while. I noticed that it uses both cores of my PC but leaves some spare CPU so I can do other things. It was getting late, so I went to bed. The next morning I put them on my iPad and the results were great. No problems. Did not do anything wierd to the iPad, to iTunes, or to the PC. It just worked.
I am not familiar with the syntax of the different MP4 schemes that the app presents, but I found one that seemed to work. It had the word "ipad" in it, so I used it. Worked great.
I cannot wait until I have some time to play with it to see what else it will do. One of the best designed apps, let alone free apps, that I have ever seen. Well thought-out interface.
It should not surprise that it would cause some issues in the Windows world with all of the different flavors of Windows (not to mention all of the levels of patched and unpatched Windows) and all the different hardware components and drivers that are out there. I am surprised anything works on that loose collection of stuff.
