    Nicholas from the Participatory Culture Foundation sez,

    Miro 4 has just been released!

    We believe the open media world can be just as integrated and usable as the closed, top-down, DRM’ed systems of companies like Apple. And we want to prove it.

    Miro, free and open-source, is now a full alternative to iTunes and Windows Media Player:

    * Syncs music and video to Android phones and tablets

    * Buy music and apps from Amazon and other stores inside Miro

    * Stream and share music and video on your local network

    * Gorgeous, totally new UI

    * Works with your iTunes library, so it’s easy to try Miro and see if you like it

    * A very fast bittorrent client

    * Powerful video player supporting and converting almost any format

    Basically, it rules.

    Android is going to be 50% of the smartphone market by the end of the year, but millions of Android users are still using iTunes, software that explicitly refuses to sync to their devices. That seems a little crazy doesn’t it?

    We think Miro 4 can change that.

    Miro 4

    (Thanks, Nicholas!)
