Editors' review

Senuti for Mac helps you manage your media library by facilitating the transfer of music, movies, and podcasts from your iPhone or iPod back to your computer. Through this app, you can choose to add transferred items to iTunes, save them in a separate folder on your computer, or both.

Pros

Intro and instructions: When you first open this app, you'll be greeted with a brief walk-through that gives you an overview of what the program can do and also provides tips on how to avoid certain pitfalls. The interface is straightforward enough to begin with, but this added introduction lets you jump right in and start using the app without hesitation.

Nice interface and functionality: All options are clearly laid-out in this app's interface, and you can take advantage of some nice features, like the ability to drag and drop playlists directly into the program. Scan war completed quickly, and you can set certain preferences ahead of time, such as where you'd like to automatically save songs to, in order to save time each time you initiate a transfer.

Cons

Crashes and bugs: During testing, this app crashed every time we tried to select the Advanced Preferences tab in Settings. This probably won't be much of a concern to casual users anyway, although we were unable to learn what options were actually contained in that space. But more experienced users might be frustrated by the inability to fully customize the program to suit their needs.

Bottom Line

Senuti for Mac is a convenient and versatile program that gives you the ability to control more fully what and how you import media from your iDevice. The trial version is good for 30 days, but it has the additional limitations of a maximum of 1,000 songs transferred, and it will also pause for 30 seconds after every 10 songs. The full version costs $18.99.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Senuti for Mac 1.3.3.

    "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!

    "What a bargain..."

    February 26, 2012   |   By VintageAnn

    Version: Senuti 1.2.9

    Pros

    Works like a charm!

    Cons

    There are no cons. This is a fabulous app.

    Summary

    Okay here's the deal, I wanted to put all my music from all my apple devices onto my macbook. I lost all of my music off my macbook due to user error (me being the user). So with that said I needed something I could figure out.

    This app could not be any easier if I'd written it myself. You highlight what you want to transfer hit the button and VOILA it is done and it is fast.

    I would have paid much more than the 18.99 price.
