Editors' review

Apple makes extracting your music from your iPod unnecessarily difficult, which is where SharePod comes in. This fast freeware tool efficiently transfers your music collection to your hard drive, making it easy to back up or restore your music, videos, and photos. It also transfers playlists, album art, and ratings, both to your hard drive and directly into iTunes.

SharePod comes with features that many competitors lack. Not only can you transfer your files, you can also perform some basic editing. You can use it to delete art, playlists, music, and videos from your iPod, edit tags, and you can also transfer from your computer to your iPod without having to use iTunes. When you copy, you can set the folder architecture to one of three defaults, or customize your own. One key feature of SharePod is that it comes with a database backup, so if something goes awry during the transfer process, it's a simple procedure to restore it.

The program comes in an archive, not a self-extracting EXE file. The EXE file is tiny, however, weighing in at just 5.4MB, so it's small enough to carry around on your iPod. SharePod is surprisingly effective. In transferring more than 7,000 songs and their accompanying artwork, playlists, and ratings, SharePod only freaked out on two dozen tracks. Notably, it doesn't stop copying, instead logging which files copy successfully and which don't. Given how hassle-free it is and how good it is at what it does, it's hard not to consider SharePod a must-have.

    "Using this software left me unable to play my music"

    July 14, 2014   |   By Mayazza

    Version: SharePod 4.0.1.1

    Pros

    It's the best app for iPod to sync music from iPod to itunes. In a single click, it's done.

    And I've found 20% discount here:

    ************

    Cons

    After using it, I was unable to play any of my music!

    Summary

    After using it, I was unable to play any of my music! It just showed up with a red square inside a red circle. This is on an iPhone 4S with iOS 7. I'd avoid using this until it publishes an update that fixes this problem.

    "New Name Of Phones Security & Safety"

    July 10, 2014   |   By Jameskeyy

    Version: SharePod 4.0.1.1

    Pros

    I gave a try to this tool but no success. I'm using iPhone 5S (running on iOS7) and it simply did not detect my phone. Now finally, I am settled with another similar tool named iPod Transfer and it lived up to my expectations. The only thing missing is that it (iPod Transfer) does not transfer SMS to computer in ANTS file format. But still would recommend it!



    PS I'm not advertising this program. I just found it useful and thought of sharing with others. I would also advise you to try before you buy.

    Cons

    NOT FREE

    p.s, I don't like the new interface

    Summary

    I would like to see it work with out Apples iTunes. I would like also to see features as wifi connection with my devices, the ability to import pictures to camera roll and secondly not so important but helpful, remote access to my computer , remote mouse support .

    "Incredibly Easy!"

    June 23, 2014   |   By cchrisbooth

    Version: SharePod 4.0.1.1

    Pros

    Got a new computer and had to re-install iTunes. All I wanted to do was sync the music on my phone with the new version of iTunes (I have a lot of CD's I have ripped over the years). After searching the (relatively worthless) iTunes help etc. I got into a chat with one of the Apple techs who informed me they may or may not give me the answer for $19. Did a web search and found SharePod. For $20, I will give it a shot.

    The software was painfully easy to download. The interface was straight forward and very intuitive. Literally with one click, I was able to move my ripped music, playlist etc. back to my new computer in a timeframe (I did not time the actual update) that was much faster than anticipated.

    Cons

    Very few that I could find (ok, the software was $20, but Apple wanted $19 and didn't have a solution).

    Summary

    Good stuff! Highly recommend by me!

    "Get my iTunes Music Library Back!!!"

    May 12, 2014   |   By Cullenlie

    Version: SharePod 4.0.1

    Pros

    My Mac had suddenly died and lost my iTunes music. So I thought i'll lost the songs forever until a search found it. It worked flawlessly to copy music from my ipod touch to my iTunes music Library on Mac.

    Cons

    Can't transferall songs on iPod nano to My new Macbook Pro.

    Summary

    I usually like enjoying music with my lovely iPod touch. Last Sunday, I got a new computer. I did it. But I can't transfer all songs on iPod touch to my MacBook Pro. Now finally, I am settled with another similar tool named iMacsoft iPod to Mac Transfer and it lived up to my expectations. The only thing missing is that it (iPod Message Transfer) does not transfer SMS to computer in ANTS file format. But still would recommend it!

    "horrible horrible rip off worthless software"

    April 08, 2014   |   By bobbybauer

    Version: SharePod 4.0.1

    Pros

    absolutely nothing...unless you enjoy wasting time and taking on unnecessary stress
    WOULD GIVE 0 STARS IF I COULD!!

    Cons

    software does not work
    well, the developers of sharepod have finally gotten greedy. they took a useful free program and replaced it with a program that won't get off its ass unless you pay. there is absolutely NO REASON to download this software. it is completely worthless. i was a sharepod user for years but this new version isn't worth the time it takes to download. you'd get better results by throwing your iphone out a window

    Summary

    DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME, IT ISN'T WORTH IT

    "Doesn't xfr from pc to iphone WITHOUT syncing ALL file."

    March 29, 2014   |   By spacecon

    Version: SharePod 4.0.1

    Pros

    Might work going from Apple to PC, but does not appear to transfer from PC to Apple device without syncing all files.

    Cons

    I looked through all available help files and all available menus. Although the description from the vendor states that you can easily copy files to/from a device and pc, it appears to only copy from an apple device to a pc. You can't copy from a PC to an Aplle unless you want to sync the entire library. Well iTunes easily does that, I thought this would let you add individual files without syncing. That does not appear to be the case.

    Summary

    Doesn't do what they say, or what I need. Namely, I need to be able to transfer individual files from a pc to an iphone or ipad WITHOUT syncing all files.

    "Amazing software"

    March 23, 2014   |   By remitron

    Version: SharePod 4.0.1

    Pros

    Fast transfers, worth every penny

    Cons

    Had to pay for it

    Summary

    I was transferring 10 songs every 1 minute (free version) and I had 1800 songs to do. Broke down and bought SharePod and it was an incredible investment as it took under 10 minutes to do the 1700+/- songs left. Amazing
