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.

    "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.

    "A serious flaw."

    July 18, 2014   |   By Cattus99

    Version: PodTrans 3.4.10

    Pros

    Price (free)
    Relatively easy to use.

    Cons

    I copied 800 songs from my ipod to PC and I wasn't watching the progress. I seemed to be complete and then crashed. I restarted the program and, not knowing if the transfers were complete, highlighted all the songs again for copying into the same folder thinking that it would check for those it had done. Nope it just copied them all again as a second copy and I ended with 1600 songs on the PC. pretty unacceptable operation if you ask me.that mean that if i do a partial copy and then another partial it will duplicate any overlaps. Since I'm not sure if this program behavior extends to the copy back to the iPod, I will have to give this a failing mark.

    Summary

    Fix this and perhaps I will try again.

    "MUST HAVE Software period"

    June 30, 2014   |   By Psycho_Dad33

    Version: PodTrans 3.4.10

    Pros

    Easy to use, just a few clicks and you backup all your files.

    Cons

    Main text can be a little more clearly to read.

    Summary

    I can survive without this software. I have 1300 songs on my Ipod Touch 4Gen, and my computer's hard drive completely crashed, taking all my songs with it. I went online to find the best app/software to transfer all those songs back to my pc. Luckily I've found PodTrans and with just a few clicks I was able to transfer all my song back. Excellent job guys.

    Wow! After spending nearly 3 unsuccessful hours trying to sync new music from PC to IPOD via iTunes, I found and downloaded this application. Though initially skeptical, I'm completely satisfied with the results. It's easy to use and yes, it's free with no hidden cost (may have to pay for the upgrade). Totally recommend it.
