    You have to download Fireant to realize the revolution.

    FireAnt is cool but I hate how they manage the file into one (1) directory and with some leangthy filename that are NOT READABLE by any ordinary human being. Once you sync those to your mp3 player, it does the same thing. I cannot even sort by any artists, title or genre. I’ll stick with iPodder lemmon. I use fireant for everything else I dont sync with my zen micro.

    Hey Francis,

    We definitely hear your feedback and plan to do something about this soon… we use hashed file names in FireAnt to ensure uniqueness so that you never download duplicate files and so that you can download multiple files simultaneously. When you use FireAnt’s “sync” or “save as” features it will rewrite the file name to something more human readable (i.e. “item title: channel title”). We are currently working on a solution to provide human readable filenames while also supporting the conditions above. Look out for this soon.
