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.

"Don't Bother !"

June 15, 2015  |  By Dysonymann

 |  Version: SharePod 4.0.2.0

Pros

Nothing good

Cons

Doesn't work, very poorly constructed. I ended up downloading a program by copytrans that worked much better.

http://www.*****.org/*****/

Summary

Aside from the bad link, if you go to the website and attempt to get this thing to read an 80GB iPod clasic, you then have to muck around with an FWID no which you can get from the back of the iPod, or in my case since it's old and scratched, get it via your device manager. You can find instructions on the net telling you how to enter the compulsory FWID no, but that's where you get stuck. NOTHING HAPPENS !!. There are enough forums on this subject to tell you that I'm not the only one to have wasted their time with this. Save yourself 15 minutes of aggravation. Don't bother.

"Works Great!"

May 02, 2015  |  By jlt3031

 |  Version: SharePod 4.0.2.0

Pros

Very user friendly!

Cons

Free for first 55 songs then 20 dollars, but it's worth it.

Summary

I had inadvertently deleted about 300 songs on my iTunes account when transferring to a new computer. Was able to use this program along with another Apple device that still had them on it and recover and re-install them back onto my device.

Does a good job of copying music and playlists.

"ipod classic"

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.

"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.
