For starters, when I update MyMovies database on my PC there is no additional export for the iPad because the iPad accesses an online database of your movies instead of an exported file so when I open the MyMovies app on my iPad it automatically picks up that movies have been added and in a few seconds it updates the iPad catalog. The MyMovies app has endless sorting options, online trailers automatically linked to your movies, and, even direct imdb links to inforamtion you may want to look up about the movie.
Don't get me wrong, the Zappiti app works and looks great. However, it seems to take an extremely long time to export to itunes, then, I have to manually copy the file to each of my two iPads in itunes and then I have to sync each iPad which also seems to take some time, substantially longer than the few seconds the MyMovies app takes.
i agree to a point,having used mymovies on my htcp for years and tried it with the dune when they modified it to use with a multitude of media players i found configuration a pain,this is only my gripe but it never really worked for me,zap does so il stick to that.
