Editors' Review

PodTrans reduces some of the headache inherent in moving files to and from your iPod and computer. With a drag-and-drop interface to move different types of files between the iPod Classic, Touch, Nano, or Shuffle, you can easily get files from your device back to your computer or vice versa without having to reformat your entire device and start from scratch.

The interface for PodTrans is relatively easy to use and setup takes only a couple of minutes, though you do need iTunes installed on your computer for the transfers to work properly. Once you plug a device into your computer, you can quickly see what is on it, what files are available on your computer, and how to start transferring those files between device and machine. You can then transfer content from the device to the computer or back with a few quick drag and drops. We tested the application with about 100 files, including music tracks and video, and they all transferred from device to computer in less than four minutes. It was equally easy to delete them and then move them back, albeit a bit slower when transferring from computer to device.

If you have an iPod--whatever version it might be--PodTrans offers an easy, intuitive solution for a common problem that plagues iTunes and Apple's portable devices. We recommend this software as a viable alternative to the clean and sync method required by iTunes when moving files between devices.

"Finally!! Freeware that works!"

November 24, 2014

 |  Version: PodTrans 3.8.1

Pros

- free!
- Small, efficient and robust program
- Works fast to transfer/manage your iPod/iPhone files
- Free
- Has an amazing array of options for saving your files from your Apple devices
- Incredibly intuitive interface
- FREEE!!!!

Cons

None that I have noticed

Summary

I have been looking all over the internet for an iPod utility that works well, quickly and is free. I installed and uninstalled at least 4 trialware programs that didn't give me any freedom to do what I wanted. All I asked was to copy 270 little songs off of my ancient iPod and onto the computer. The best I could do was transfer 100 songs. Thank the good lord I found PodTrans. Within minutes of installing all those files I wanted to backup are now on my computer. Thank you so much PodTrans. You've saved me tons of grief!!!

"Easy to use, works well"

November 04, 2014  |  By sheriden.cv

 |  Version: PodTrans 3.8.1

Pros

Easy to install, simple to use and worked well for what I needed it for

Cons

No problems during my quick use

Summary

I needed to transfer 600 songs off my old iPod touch and import them into iTunes to transfer onto my new device. This program was simple to install and use, and quickly transferred all of the songs off my iPod and into my iTunes with no hassle.

"WARNING Deceptive!"

October 03, 2014  |  By rodney.becker

 |  Version: PodTrans 3.8.0

Pros

It doesn't cost anything to download.

Cons

The program states it does not need iTunes but it requires iTunes to work with your iPod to sync and will prompt you during the setup to install it if you don't already have it. It is the free version but as soon as I transferred just one song to my iPod to test it, the transfer button changes to a purchase button and never works again! The software is useless unless you purchase it. It is CRIPPLEWARE. There is no play feature so you can't listen to your music using it. There is no search or even type down feature so it is necessary to scroll down all of your music files to find what you are looking for. There is no option to check just the songs you want to sync. You have to select every file you want to sync and highlight it to sync every single time. Totally useless!

"Great program, would recommend it."

September 14, 2014  |  By buzzy0130

 |  Version: PodTrans 3.8.0

Pros

Did what it said without a hitch at all.

Cons

No problems as of yet, did what it said it would do without any problems.

Summary

My computer crashed and files and files got corrupted so I did not want to take a chance of the iTunes being corrupted so I researched for quite a while and found this program and transferred all 796 songs in a matter of about 10 minutes. This is a great program and I am thinking of buying the pro so I can transfer my videos over to iTunes. It would take quite a while to convert all the videos over to iTunes where this program will do it a lot faster. I would recommend it to anyone out there looking at transferring all songs and videos to iTunes without having to convert all your songs and videos to iTunes. I spent quite a while researching on how to transfer everything on my iPod classic to iTunes and apple was of no help. So I researched on cnet and found this program and I like it.

"ThankYouCreators"

July 27, 2014  |  By InvalidRandomUser1

 |  Version: PodTrans 3.4.10

Pros

I was searching for software that could transfer lost files from my ipod to my computer and this IS it. There are honest and good people in the world, and such are the creators of this software. I don't recommend using it if youre not comfortable though, because their contract is pretty stiff.

Cons

No complaints, no cons.
