PodTrans

CNET 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.

    "I just uploaded 350 songs on a broke nano."

    March 16, 2014  |   By static1303

    Version: PodTrans 3.4.10

    Pros

    the pros: everything this program does exactly what it says it is going to do.

    Cons

    Cons: Havent found any yet. and trust me I will. and I will be the first to tell the world.

    Summary

    I believe that you do what you say you are going to do. and a hand shake is in good faith that you are going to do just that. this program said it would do exactly what I wanted it to do. I recommend it to anyone who needs to get things off of their ipod or iPhone or ipad. It works. and best of all it is FREE

    "Works but could be better"

    March 16, 2014  |   By jhs39

    Version: PodTrans 3.4.10

    Pros

    It's free and it does what it says.

    Cons

    The program crashed the first time I tried to do a back-up. When I tried again I used the same folder and it started from scratch, making extra copies of the tracks it had backed up previously. Also, the timer is completely inaccurate. At one point it said I had 29 minutes left--15 minutes later it said I had 24 minutes left.

    Summary

    If you need a way to transfer your music from your I-pod to your computer this program will do the job for free but there may be a few glitches along the way.

    "FREE and does the job."

    March 6, 2014  |   By smedley123

    Version: PodTrans 3.4.10

    Pros

    FREE and did not try to slip in spyware or malware or change the search engine or home page. Transferred very fast and there were no restrictions. It did tell me to update the version for my version of Itunes and I thought, "here's where they get me with the fees but nope, It was free too and seems to work great!

    Cons

    HAVEN'T FOUND ANY YET. I will check back and update this if I do. I have not used it much.

    Summary

    Just what I was looking for ... surprised it is FREE.

    "Only way to transfer your songs from iPod to your PC"

    February 26, 2014  |   By ijustwanttowriteareview

    Version: PodTrans 3.4.10

    Pros

    Fast
    Easy
    Reliable

    Cons

    None that I had noticed

    Summary

    I got an used iPod for Christmas, and it just so happened that it had very interesting songs in it. When I went looking for "Senuti"'s PC version, all I found was shady software.

    But this turned out to be a very good surprise. Got all of my songs out of my iPod with the free version. Perfect when you're changing PC's or buying a used iPod.

    First time I'm writing a review. Ever. This was worth it.

    "Performs as advertised"

    February 22, 2014  |   By marine4469

    Version: PodTrans 3.4.10

    Pros

    1.) Easy to use (very intuitive)
    2.) Very stable (has never crashed)
    3.) Go pro, it's worth every penny.

    Cons

    None that I've found.

    Summary

    This is a straightforward, easy to use alternative to the iTunes standard that we've all become reliant upon for many years.
    The free starter version is worth a try, if it doesn't meet your needs you can always uninstall it as it leaves nothing behind using the Windows standard uninstall program.
