Editors' review

Imagine you just got a shiny new Mac computer, and you'd like to transfer all your music from your MP3 player to it. Unfortunately, iTunes can't do that, but that is where Senuti comes into the picture. The application's simple interface will handle the process and copy your files within minutes.

While Senuti's basic interface is easy enough to follow, it's a good idea to take a few minutes to read the online Getting Started guide to make sure you don't inadvertently erase your iPod's library. For the record, selecting "Prevent auto-syncing with iTunes" should keep you from erasing your favorite music from your portable device. Also, the company says on its site that the program "is not required or intended for transferring Apple iTunes purchases," so keep that in mind.

We liked Senuti's simple interface, but it can be frustrating for advanced users with more complex needs. However, beginners will enjoy using the app, which aims to do one thing: move your music files from your iDevice to your Mac. After you connect your iPod or iPhone to the computer, Senuti marks the music files already in your iTunes library with a blue dot. This allows you to immediately spot which files are missing from your computer. After selecting the files, two available commands become active: Transfer or Stop. By default, the app will place the files into your iTunes Music library, but you can opt to copy them to another folder if needed. We were impressed by the copying speed, so if you need to back up your iPod fast, Senuti has got you covered.

During our testing we loved using Senuti, as the application does what it promises to do: back up music files in a speedy way. The trial version is limited to 30 days of free use or 1,000 songs.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Senuti 1.3b2.

    "not free to use"

    April 22, 2014   |   By Joseler198

    Version: Senuti 1.3b2

    Pros

    unless you pay $20 it will only transfer 10 track before stopping for 30 seconds so you can buy it! I only had 500 dongs to transfer so that's atleast half an hour

    Cons

    NOT FREE, Cannot transfer ANY pictures.

    Summary

    When I tried to use it with my iPod Classic, all my songs were deleted. I'm not all that great with computers but I can't help blame Senuti for this.

    "Great Product - Definitely Worth Paying For!"

    April 06, 2014   |   By BELLEPee

    Version: Senuti 1.3b2

    Pros

    extremely simple to use for anyone of any age

    very very fast

    Cons

    no cons over here

    Summary

    I have no complaints because for a super long time I put off purchasing this type of software. My iPod has required an update for years, but not having all of my songs on my iTunes library was hindering me. I am satisfied with the purchase of this product and would highly recommend it.

    "Worked for 160 GB iPod - also needed Song Sergeant"

    March 26, 2013   |   By TrinityLS

    Version: Senuti 1.3b2

    Pros

    *Fast Transfer - a few hours (TouchCopy only transferred 1000/22,000 files in 11 hours)

    *Simple Interface

    *Easy Process

    Cons

    Not the fault of senuti - I also needed Song Sergeant utility to link files in my iTunes Library. 9500 of 22,000 could not be found.

    Summary

    This is the idea utility for large iPods. TouchCopy was a total failure.

    "Life Saver! Easy and super reliable. Worth $18.99"

    January 07, 2013   |   By duckspoon5

    Version: Senuti 1.3b2

    Pros

    The transfers are quick and the program is very self explanatory. This is the only reliable program for retrieving media back to your computer.

    Cons

    If you are attempting to transfer audio from your ipod to your computer, the songs will not automatically go to itunes if there is any trace of ghost files on your computer from the songs. Senuti marked most of my songs as already transferred to iTunes, even though the original files on itunes could not be located. I had to manually drag all the songs into itunes from Senuti, but it gave me more control and I was able to put all the real files back on iTunes

    Summary

    Senuti is worth the $18.99. It is a legitimate program that saves your files and gives you a piece of mind. Plus, the newest version is very fast and the tech support is great. The free Demo only transfers 1,000 songs, which doesn't help much if your ipod is as loaded as mine is. I bit the bullet and bought that program and am so glad I did!
