  • MewSeek 2.5-1 UPDATE for iOS 4 REVIEW

    Live streaming and Downloading of music has been possible on the iPhone by the use of Mewseek. Now eric has updated his app to support iOS4 (if you missed this earlier) and made another update to fix TOS crashes.
    other features brought back to iOS4 is the add to iPod feature we all remember, which basically as it entitles , lets you add your downloaded content to your iPod library without the use of itunes.
    but this time around , eric has added some new features to help you better find and download content

    NEW FEATURES:
    FULL iOS4, iPad and iPhone4 support
    Streaming before you download: useful to preview songs before you download them (when listening to streams, a simple shake will let you stop playback)
    Folder sync: add any mp3s on the download folder to add them iPod through MewSeek
    Tag Edit: Edit artist, title and album names before adding to iPod
    Retina support:

    you can find MewSeek and give it a trial free on Cydia!
    or Register full service for $9.99

    unregistered users are allowed a maximum of ten (10) songs to your music library using the "add to iPod" feature
    after this limit is reached you have to register or you can just keep downloading songs and listen to them on your preferred third party music player
    there is also a daily limit search on SkreemR

    and for those wondering,
    There is a huge misunderstanding on the legal status of MewSeek. MewSeek does not host any of the files but provides a simplified search engine interface to quickly search for files on the internet that a user would otherwise do by some other more complicated method.
    If you compare this to Google there isn't much difference, Google is a search engine and so is MewSeek in a way

      THE ONE QUESTION i need answered that no one yet has from that guy on the first page - Wouldn't this delete all your songs when you itunes sync ? .....

      if iTunes syncs, then yes it will delete the music you downloaded. You must change settings to manually manage music & videos on itunes, so that way it doesn't delete it.

      Anyone else getting a hang or crash on startup? I'm using a 3GS on 4.01 jailbroken, but without Winterboard or any other mods installed.

      Ok... so this really peaks my interest. First of all, it is very cute (the name and icon). But further than that... perhaps a user can answer these:

      1- if I try it out and it says if I decide not to register I can download songs and play them via whatever third party player I have. What does this mean? Do they download in a format the iPhone cannot play initially? Do I have to sync/SSH them off my phone from whatever directory, convert, import into iTunes and then sync them back in?

      2- Is there a good variety/availability of music on this service? I listen to a lot of foreign music (German, Japanese/Asian) or is this mostly the Western American Top 40 Pop/Hip-Hop stuff?

      I liked it but once you use it you can't sync with your iTunes music again. It would be awesome if they worked together. This app is awesome but not enough to replace iTunes all together.

      Yes I understand you can turn off iTunes sync to avoid losing all of your mew files and if you do sync mew has the option to reload everything you lost. No big deal with 10 songs. Big deal with hundreds

      MewSeek works great on iPhone 4. And if your worried about loosing your music when you sync, try going into var/mobile/Media/Downloads. Open that up then drag your music files (songs) to your desktop and then drag them into your iTunes music. Now there in iPod to stay.

      I have the same problem as nitrokilla on the trial. iPhone 4, FW 4.0.1, no music is showing up in my iPod. Mewseek often crashes if I try to transfer to iPod. I had Pwntunes but uninstalled it, Mewseek still doesn't work.

      After downloading, I selected a song and press add to iPod button.

      The song shows up in iPod but can't be played. If I sort by song, it simply skips the exported song and play the next song. If I select by artist and have the exported music as the only song, then the device locks up and requires a reboot.

      If I press the sync button, a second entry is made to iPod. Both the first and second entries could not be played.

      This application does not work yet on my iPhone 4 running ios 4.0.1. Save your money for now.

      Just got mewseek, downloaded a song, imported to library... said everything was successful - I went to sync to my iTunes, says iTunes Cannot Read Contents of iPhone...

      I tried the ReSync, didn't do anything.

      Help? Don't have 4.0.1 blobs on file so a restore isn't really an option..

      Same thing was happening to me. I fixed this issue by just opening itunes
      sync it with itunes and make sure your "manuelly manage music" option is checked. Should work now. Now try again. Enjoy! hope it works for you.
