"Works Perfectly"

May 04, 2011  |  By invisible21

 |  Version: PodWorks 2.9.6

Pros

So easy to use and so consistent. You can easily tell it to copy all files from your ipod to a computer avoiding duplicates and it works pretty much perfectly. I'm sure it makes a mistake here and there but I've never seen it in about 3 years.

Cons

It costs money, but as the other reviewer noted the price is WELL worth it and goes to support a developer that really makes rock solid products.

There is no PC version as far as I know.

Summary

Buy it. It is truly a great product.

"flawless performance"

January 26, 2011  |  By mkhilario

 |  Version: PodWorks 2.9.6

Pros

I don't know why this is not more popular. I have been using it for years from tiger through snow leopard. Simple and effective.

Cons

It's not free. But the $8 I spent years ago has paid for itself many times over.

Summary

Super stable. Well worth the 8 bucks.

I love Podworks and have used it for years. I am glad to see that it has been brought back to life. This has been the best tool for pulling the songs off of my iPod time and time again. Kudos!!!

"Used to be great....could be great again!"

June 14, 2007  |  By smartmart_dotmac

 |  Version: PodWorks 2.8.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I bought podworks to enable my 80gb ipod as a storage device for my record collection. It was the most important piece of software I had after iTunes, until about 3 months ago.

As many have pointed out, podworks hasn't been updated for so long that my copy just doesn't work anymore. It crashes on startup or when I try to connect to my pod. Re-installs etc do nothing. The application just doesn't work with the latest versions of itunes and 0s 10.4.9

I'm pleased to see that the developer is working on it once again because as I said before, I would recommend everyone buys it, but only when it's been fixed. Until then steer well clear.

"Be careful..."

February 06, 2007  |  By versiontracker1000

 |  Version: PodWorks 2.8.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I had used PodWorks a few years ago without problems, but hadn't used it recently. I used it last weekend to get music off a friend's iPod - and it trashed the iPod! She had to restore the iPod to factory settings. Please be careful with this software - it may have significant incompatibilities with new iPods and iTunes.

Can anyone recommend an alternative??

"Why on earth is the raiting for this so high?"

January 15, 2007  |  By Fissure

 |  Version: PodWorks 2.8.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Unless you want to copy just a few songs this application is completely useless. The only way to copy songs is to 'copy selected' and you can only select ONE song at a time. Every time you export a song you have to choose the path to the place you want to export them to again. This means that exporting a single CD takes well over 5 minutes and exporting anything more is a tedious chore.

"Do Not Use!"

November 28, 2006  |  By phumphri

 |  Version: PodWorks 2.8.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
What a mess! First I couldn't use the program for 20 minutes because it said my registration number didn't work even though I was cutting and pasting directly from my purchase receipt. Then it finally starting working out of nowhere. After trying to open it, my Ipod--which never gives me trouble-- froze. Itunes wouldn't open, and then it said my Ipod was corrupted!!!!! Now all my music could potentially be gone! I only used this stupid program b/c the HD on my 6 month old MacBook died and my music wasn't backed up. (Didn't think I had to worry about such a new computer)

All I know is, my Ipod was suddenly deemed corrupted after using PodWorks...run.

Will not launch on MacBook Pro, and so far looks like it will no longer be updated. Too bad, it used to work great.

"Great program that is simple and Works!"

August 15, 2006  |  By smmanohar

 |  Version: PodWorks 2.8.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I am an newbie to Mac OS and copying or putting back together my itunes music that I lost due to a bad drive from Apple and the lack of the Mac. Store Geniuses that couldnt back up my music before they dumped it?! Then Apple wouldnt let me get my music back so I had to do it from my trusty Ipod. I really like the program and for 8 bucks you cant beat it! It copied all my music flawlessly without a hitch and even copied my album art that I was worried it may not do. It doesnt say if it does on the description of the program that it copied the album art but it does which is important to me. Now if the mac Geniuses could only figuire out how to back up peoples stuff before they delete it maybe I wouldnt have to use a program as good as this. Oh well
