The FlyFi iTunes Helper is an application that runs on your computer to help FlyFi get to know your musical taste by looking at your iTunes library. It runs continuously so FlyFi can keep up to date on your music.
The FlyFi iTunes Helper sends the contents of your iTunes data file (a behind the scenes part of your iTunes library) to FlyFi server to be analyzed. By looking at your iTunes music, which is one of the best reflections of your musical tastes, FlyFi can make better new music suggestion. FlyFi can also use this information to better serve other members.
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. Not too impressed with this app. Almost none of the recommendations were useful - it either brought back recommendations of songs/albums already in the library, or many that I would not purchase or listen to. I don't recommend this app, it would be a lot easier and more beneficial to just go to iTunes or Amazon.com and just browse their recommended music. (especially since Goombah takes you to the iTunes music store anyway when you want to check out some of the music it suggests)
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. I know its beta, but it shuld at least connect to the server... I signed up, verified my address, and it just doesn't connect. Good start with the layout though.
