Anytune will let you exchange the song metadata (marks, tempo, pitch, eq, lyrics etc) using iCloud or via email. That is built in. We have a video here that shows the process using iCloud, but you can do a similar thing via email.
So as long as both songs are available to Anytune on both devices, it should ‘just work’. The key thing here is that Anytune does not move the song files themselves – it relies on them either being sync’d to each device using iTunes (recommended) or you have to import the song into Anytune yourself first (say from Dropbox or whatever) before it will be able to apply the settings that are exchanged using the iCloud/email mechanisms.
The export purchase is only if you want to export a tempo/pitch adjusted version of a track. It is not necessary for the purposes of exchanging metadata between devices. If by some chance you have a song on one device, and not on the other you can make use of the ‘Original Song’ export, which will let you move the original song file out. There is no add-on required for that.

It does act on it.
If you have the Marks panel open on the left, and you start using the previous/next mark buttons, you will see a play next arrow move to the mark that will be used as the target.
This video here will give you some ideas as to what Play Next is about. It’s mostly demoed on the iPad, but the concepts are identical.
The user guide, I am embarrassed to say still isn’t ready. We are making progress on it, but its taken us WAY longer than we were expecting. So many things to do. 🙁

Anytune should let you navigate marks regardless of whether or not you are playing back the song.
Chances are that you may have enabled the “Play Next” feature which is designed to let you queue up the next mark for playback, but only triggers the seek to the selected mark when playback hits the next mark or encounters the end of a loop.
Open the Marks menu, and if Play Next is enabled, turn it off. It should then behave as you are expecting it to.

I assume in this case that the song title is the same for both the new cast recordings and the old cast recordings? Is there any difference in the album or artist or are they both the same? Can you tell me a bit more about the metadata on each song (i.e.: the album, artist, playlist). Are you dragging them from iTunes into Anytune, or are you using the Anytune iTunes integration to create the Anytune playlist?
A few other customers have mentioned that they are having some issues with songs that have the same title, and I’m wondering if this may somehow be related. We have to do some more investigation on it – and I will tentatively add your issue to the existing bug report.
If you create your new and old cast playlists in iTunes, and then access them using the Anytune iTunes -> Playlist integration, does it work there, or do you see problems with it bringing in the wrong version of the songs as well?

In Anytune for iOS, tap the settings icon.
Select Stop at End of Track
On the Mac, choose Anytune preferences
Select Playback Tab
Enable Stop at End of Track
Hope that helps!

We have not attempted to look at or reverse engineer the file formats that Transcribe or Amazing Slow Downer use to save their song markup information. I could certainly see it being useful to have a converter of some variety, but it could potentially become a rats nest in short order trying to keep up with the formats that other tools use.

We try to incorporate features and suggestions when we can and also try to respond to feedback from our customers as quickly as we can.
Just a note, if you’ve got marks for your songs in Anytune for your iPad, you can use the config export email to send them to your Mac for use with the Mac demo version and vice versa. On your iPad select Settings, scroll to the bottom and choose Config Export and send yourself an email with the config attached. Then on your Mac you should be able to open the attached file in the demo version of Anytune. You can double-click on it, or use File->Config Import->Import from File…
With the Mac App Store version of Anytune you can use iCloud to streamline the process (saves you having to send emails back and forth – it will use iCloud instead). We have a video here showing the process between an iPad and an iPhone, but the concepts are the same between an iPad and the Mac.
I mention this in case that saves you some time/energy with song markup since you’ve likely got a number already done on the iPad.

The App Store cross account thing is annoying.
I have some ideas as to how I can help – but given this particular situation it would probably be best if you could contact us directly. Make sure you keep your backups handy – you’re going to need them again. 😉

Thanks for the feedback and the suggestion.
Adding a keyboard shortcut to edit the current mark shouldn’t be a terribly difficult addition. We could make it behave similarly to the Add Mark and Edit function (we may be able to re-purpose the add mark and edit – not sure yet).
I have filed an enhancement request and tentatively queued it up for Anytune iOS 3.12 and Mac 1.3. We expect to have those releases available sometime around the time OS-X 10.10 is released by Apple.

Yes, the count-in is a fairly popular request. We had been planning on incorporating some new technology to do it in a way that we think would work really well. Unfortunately, we’re *still* waiting on the provider to deliver (it’s about 1.5 years behind where they said it would be) 🙁
As a result, we have not implemented the count-in. Given the situation, I do not currently have a timeframe as to when it might appear unfortunately.

I’m sorry to hear you’re having trouble. I’m happy to try and help, but it’s a challenge without knowing what the problems are. We do not offer telephone support, sorry.
Anytune is complex, and has a lot of features that you may not need and which may be confusing. It is entirely possible that Anytune is not the right slow downer for you. There are other slow downers available for the Mac that may serve your needs better.
