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.

"Try it, adopt it!"

May 09, 2010  |  By Idobetter

 |  Version: SharePod 3.9.3

Pros

It is light, does its job, and funtions without any flaw. It manages playlists, musics and videos as it should.

Cons

The process to retag files on the iPod through Sharepod could go more smoothly. It doesn't allow batch taging.

Summary

My iPod had been initialized by a friend who put his music on it. When I plugged it onto my computer, iTunes wanted to synchronize my computer with the iPod and I didn't find out how to avoid loss of the music on a side or the other. I found Sharepod which did great. I have been using it for years now, it does an excellent job.

"iTunes' brilliant alternative"

April 06, 2010  |  By xxnekocatxx

 |  Version: SharePod 3.9.3

Pros

suprisingly easy to manipulate photos, videos and music. Can extract files from the ipod aswell

Cons

nothing i can think of

Summary

I loved this because back when i used itunes, the program kept on freezing. so i went to look for another program which i then tried this one. to my suprise, it worked extremely well and was easy to use on the first go. I recommend this highly to anyone who finds itunes slow, in fact, anything to do with the ipod, this program has most of it all there for you.

"Ipod salvation"

April 03, 2010  |  By ArtiqueFox

 |  Version: SharePod 3.9.3

Pros

Works like a charm, and detects my ipod nano every time. No issues with ipod to computer transfer or vice-versa. This program is a bright freeware beacon among a hodgepodge of "free to try, but you must buy" ipod recovery programs.

Cons

Zilch! None!

"3.9.3=Bad 3.9.4 Preview 10=Good"

March 11, 2010  |  By roy05

 |  Version: SharePod 3.9.3

Pros

I have a 5G Ipod video. I downloaded 3.9.3 from cnet and it wouldn't recognize my ipod, so after reading some reviews, I decided to try to download it directly from the publisher. This worked magnificently, and the program is awesome!

Cons

UI is a bit archaic.

Summary

I would recommend this for any pc user with an ipod. The publisher's site isn't "shareport.com" it's "www.getshareport.com." Just so you know, thanks!
