Soundzabound and iPad/iPhone Compatibility

Soundzabound customers have asked about the use of Soundzabound on the iPad and being unable to use the mp3 download button.  This is a proprietary issue with Apple, alleviating an MP3 by Soundzabound or anyone else to be downloaded, but only allowing M4a file downloads from iTunes. This poses a legal challenge for schools and districts, since labels and publishers do not automatically grant synchronization rights for iTunes music to be used for educational technology.  Soundzabound is currently speaking with the labels, publishers and making attempts to speak with Apple in order to resolve legal and technical issues. We will keep you updated on this progress and possible workarounds.
