    "Windows Desktop version can't export to iPhone Stanza"

    July 12, 2009  |   By Arash


    I'm pro-patience while the application tries to mature for PC users


    Stanza [PC desktop version] can't communicate with Stanza for iPhone. Why "Cnet Staf" give it5-star is absurd and ludicrous.


    The 50+ MB big Desktop Stanza can't export to Stanza for iPhone. Isn't it preposterous that "Cnet Staff" giving it 5-star rating not knowing most PCs don't come with WIFI, included application called Bonjour Stanza for PC which can't help it export. I tried reinstalling and didn't do the transfer job. Stanza desktop further reaffirms its incompetence by referring the user to the Microsoft's Tech support for further network tweaking options. Stanza [Windows version] developers should have enabled PC-to-desktop communicability right from within and inherent to the desktop version. I called several other PC users whom I asked for help and they're evenly frustrated. Probably Mac are in better luck, but it's not so with the Windows users of Stanza. CNET staff ought to be more careful about passing their judgment and bear in mind that the ease of use and developers' claims have to verified across OSes and put to test under ordinary users' hardware and setup fills as long as a product claims to support two or more platforms . Stanza fro Windows does NOT [as of version 1.7] and cannot handle export (transfer) PDF files from PC to iPhone. I gave TWo stars to Stanza for iPhone-orphan application, but I give a straight F to the CNET staffer who reviewed the product!
