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.

"Can't transfer between two iPods."

December 12, 2013  |  By Ninaores

 |  Version: SharePod 3.9.9

Pros

It helped me to backup my music from my iPod to my computer.

Cons

Can't transfer between two iPods.

Summary

It can backup the files on your iPod/iPhone to the local disk, import files (DVDs, videos, audios, photos) to iPod without iTunes.But it can't transfer files between two iPods.Now finally, I am settled with another similar tool
named iPod to Mac Transfer:
http://software.bigbigsoft.com/ipod-to-mac-transfer

and it lived up to my expectations. The only thing missing is that it (iPod to Mac 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.

"It says here it's free but it's not!"

December 10, 2013  |  By Gangnam1

 |  Version: SharePod 3.9.9

Pros

None! I feel like I've been misled by the description here.

Cons

Very misleading and somewhat deceitful claiming that this software is free. You can only copy 50 songs with the free version, for everything else you need to pay $20!

"So worth it!"

December 03, 2013  |  By elofan1

 |  Version: SharePod 3.9.9

Pros

I thought I would have to take my junked PC into the shop and pay big bucks to extract my 5k songs from itunes. This program rocks! Just a few clicks later and the songs were in place on my new laptop! I am very skeptical normally and never pay for programs. Customer service was great with a few minor questions I had. I used this with Windows 8.1 by the way.

Cons

Took a few tries to recognize my ipod, no big deal.

Summary

Great product!

"Great customer service"

November 22, 2013  |  By kjsmythe

 |  Version: SharePod 3.9.9

Pros

After downloading Sharepod, I had several problems getting the program on my PC to read my iPods. One was a very old nano and the other was a very old iPod mini that had been recorded on a Mac. I sent and email to the customer service department of Macroplant. Their technician got back to me the same day with two solutions that worked quickly in resolving all of my problems. I was now able to transfer all of my songs from these devices to my iTunes where I could edit and place them on newer devices. Highly recommended.

Cons

It is mildly misleading that it is advertised as a free program when it is only free for 5 days but see below.

Summary

The small cost for these programs is very well worth it.

"Just what I needed"

November 20, 2013  |  By Chrissy6743

 |  Version: SharePod 3.9.9

Pros

Easy to load.
Easy to use.
Does what it's meant to do
Very reasonable price for what you get.

Cons

None as yet

Summary

This is a great product and has proved very handy getting music from my iphone back into my itunes account. I have recently changed countries which meant I had to change accounts with itunes, this in turn meant all the music I had downloaded from cd's rather than purchased through itunes store was lost. Thankfully I still had them all on my phone and sharepod solved my issue of putting this music back into itunes for me. A whole lot easier than having to download all my cd's again. I love my apple products but they sure make it hard managing you music sometimes.
I will definitely recommend sharepod should I come across someone in the same predicament.

"NOT FREE!!! Poor way to do business."

November 17, 2013  |  By smithonia1383

 |  Version: SharePod 3.9.9

Pros

It was able to quickly find all my songs on my iphone.

Cons

I needed to transfer approx 2,000 songs from my Iphone to my laptop. If what you are offering for free is only a 50 song transfer demo then please state that before I waste my time installing your program.

Summary

Claiming to be a free program isn't really the truth. The program maybe free but using it costs money. I would say that is not free, more false advertising than anything. I should have none from all the fake reviews

"Amazing!!!"

October 21, 2013  |  By kaewalker

 |  Version: SharePod 3.9.9

Pros

quick to sync with ipod
ability to copy music from ipod to computer
plays music
can import music directly to itunes

Cons

no select all feature

Summary

I was devastated when my son broke my last computer's screen. I was even more so when I found out I could not take the music from my ipod and put it on my new computer. I was just about to give up when I saw a recommendation for this site. I was very skeptical at first because other programs were either to confusing to figure out how to download, or they were too expensive. This program allowed me to copy my music for free. I cannot tell you how happy I was when I saw how quickly it downloaded, how quickly it retrieved my music from my ipod, and how easy it was to copy all of my music to my computer. The only thing I wish this program had was the ability to select all music at once instead of having to click through to select everything. I normally don't go through the trouble to leave a review for anything, but I had to come here to share my experience for anyone else skeptical about downloading this program. It is not a waste of time in the slightest.

"Awesome Software!"

September 24, 2013  |  By sea-siren

 |  Version: SharePod 3.9.9

Pros

Works great
Free
Simple

Cons

None, it's all good

Summary

So happy I found this software! It was easy for a non-tech-savvy person to use and it did what it was supposed to do. I didn't think I would be able to get my music back after a virus wiped out all my files. Before SharePod, I could only find complicated and lengthy instructions on how to restore the files manually and I was too scared to try it. I cannot praise SharePod enough!
