Review: iPod.iTunes for Mac keeps your iPod and Mac synchronized

Transfer songs, podcasts, videos, and playlists from your iPod to your Mac or vice versa with this speedy app.

iPod.iTunes for Mac helps you detect and transfer missing songs, videos, podcasts, or playlists from your iPod to your Mac or the other way around, without deleting existing files on the target device/computer or creating duplicates. It comes with a convenient wizard that makes file transfer easy and a couple of other nice features. If you want file transfer capabilities that iTunes doesn't offer, this app is for you.

Once launched, iPod.iTunes quickly populates a list of missing items in the main section of the application interface, displaying basic information such as name, artist, album, size, and type. You can transfer files from your device to your computer or from your computer to your device, without creating duplicates. The application search bar lets you find specific items in no time, enabling you to select individual files for transfer more quickly. Also nice is that transferred files can be saved to any folder you choose. During our tests, the application operated smoothly and performed transfers without fail. However, if errors do occur, you will be glad to know that the application displays them in the activity log.

IPod.iTunes runs smoothly and performs its functions well. If you want to keep your iPod and Mac media libraries synced and organized, minimizing duplicates, you should definitely install this application. It will save you the trouble of having to manually go through your iPod or Mac media libraries to find missing or duplicate files. Do keep in mind that while this app is free to try, it will most likely skip about 50 percent of songs during sync. However, if you decide to register this software later on, it will transfer the remaining songs or playlists seamlessly without creating duplicates.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of iPod.iTunes for Mac 4.9.20.
