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.

"Does not work , too many problems with this program!"

March 27, 2012  |  By coolvibes2020

 |  Version: SharePod 3.9.8

Pros

Loads all my Ipod and Playlists fine.

Cons

Will not export all songs and Playlists, only about half of songs and playlists,get errors but no reason for,or help to resolve errors even after trying several times.

Summary

The maker had a good idea for this free program, but even the latest version is full of bugs or something, does not work. Gizmo Rip program, even the older Free version works so much better than this problematic program!

Pros

Easy download, operation and implementation. Sharepod really is everything it promises to be. Finally, a program that is simple and dependable! Totally stress free from the first moment I clicked the download button all the way to listening to my fully restored iTunes (4000+ songs!) library. And it's free? You can't get any better than that. Thanks Sharepod!

Cons

Not a single one.

Summary

Two thumbs up!

"Will corrupt your iPod's DB"

February 17, 2012  |  By johnroth26

 |  Version: SharePod 3.9.8

Pros

free download

Cons

Some functions work well while others are buggy. The worst part is when your done editing in sharepod, your iPod will need to be restored back to zero as it will corrupt your iPod's DB and will not be able to read again by either iTunes or sharepod.
