Sony's attempt at creating another iTunes competitor.

Media Go by Sony is a comprehensive and extensive media management program which offers not just cataloging capability for your media, but also media editing tools which help you optimize and convert your media. Media Go supports both video and audio.

Sony bills the program as fully capable of managing television series, podcasts, games and even comics.

The interface of this application comes packed with many different features which may come in handy for a number of users. The interface is very self-explanatory and miles ahead of anything Sony has created in this field yet (think SonicStage).

Beyond the core function of acting as an overall media player and library management utility, Media Go offers many surprising tools like video cropping and trimming, image conversion utilities, a photo editor and more.

The main media library of Media Go is simple to setup. If you're currently an iTunes user, you can also direct Media Go to scan your iTunes library and import all of your data from iTunes to Media Go.

In conclusion, Media Go offers a lot more than what you may expect from a piece of Sony software and it surpasses much of what Apple has attempted with their bloated iTunes software.
