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.

January 22, 2015  |  By Rawesrisernnne

 |  Version: SharePod 4.0.1.2

Pros

+ ipod classic - 25000 songs and 100+ playlists transferred.
The best iPod to PC transfer software I ever used. I'm sure this is a must-have tool for every iPod owner. The program is easy-to-use and useful. What can I say? Apple Support Communities tell you more:

Cons

Nothing bad to say.

Summary

I don't waste time with reviews but I made an exception. This is the third program I have actually purchased from these guys and the third time I've been enchanted. I owe them my peace of mind.



You rarely encounter a tech company who is ready to help you with your problem these days.

"Does exactly what it says it does - for FREE"

January 01, 2015  |  By Singerriell

 |  Version: SharePod 4.0.1.2

Pros

It is really easy to use, and it helped when I reinstalled windows, I just had to plug my ipod in after installing it and it worked perfectly. You don't even have to "get info" on itunes when you put the files on there, because it does it. And they currently offer 2015 new year version on their website:

http:*******

Cons

The actual website doesn't look legal from an overview.

Summary

I really like this software, and it would help you just get the music you want off your ipod onto your computer.

"Must have for music lovers!"

December 17, 2014  |  By AlteredNative

 |  Version: SharePod 4.0.1.2

Pros

Stays updated with Apple's software changes to keep allowing file sharing of Apple products.

Cons

Must buy for full access but is WORTH it!

Summary

The hard drive of my laptop got corrupted and had to be replaced. Before I bought another license, I contacted Macroplant, the makers of SharePod.

The contact info states it could take several days for customer support to contact you.

I was contacted and given my purchase key for the software, within an hour.

Great customer service!

"It is not free!"

October 31, 2014  |  By idamtnboy

 |  Version: SharePod 4.0.1.1

Pros

Don't know yet but it looks good!

Cons

This is a demo version that would only transfer one single specific album to my PC. It definitely is not a free program. Cnet's description is wrong and misleading!

Summary



Updated on Oct 31, 2014

This version has a serious bug in generating song titles when copying from my iPod to a folder on my PC. It creates the artist and album folders OK but then it prepends the artist and album names to the song title, and does not include the track number in the title like it should. In copying over 5000 songs from my iPod hundreds did not copy because the resultant title name created a file path too long for Windows to accommodate.

Updated on Nov 2, 2014

Exiting the program does not kill its process. You have to go into Task Manager to kill the process.

Purpose and features of Sharepod are great but the software has significant quality problems.

"Great program that every IPhone / IPod user should own"

September 09, 2014  |  By Kyasir

 |  Version: SharePod 4.0.1.1

Pros

This product easily and quickly transfers music, movies, and files from your device to your PC, without having to sync.

Cons

I didn't see any

Summary

I've used SharePod(*******) for some time, and to be honest the talented folks behind that and TouchCopy deserve some cash. They've made a solid piece of software here, that in my opinion should be part of the iTunes package. You won't be disappointed.

"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!
