Editors' Review

by   / February 24, 2013

DeTune makes is easy to access the content on your iPod, iPhone or iPad. After buying a new computer, iTunes users find that many of their songs can't be played even if they are on an iPod. DeTune for Mac allows users to keep and manage songs on iPods, even if they would be deleted via iTunes.

DeTune for Mac, with a file size under 3MB, is quick to download and install. As it lacks instructions and visible support, some less experienced users may find the interface unintuitive. Starting the program without an iPod connected leads to a graphic telling the user to connect one. After this is done, the program reads the iPod quickly. The program performs few functions outside of reading and listing songs on an iPod, but after all, it is free. The process for transferring songs from the iPod back to the computer hard drive is not clearly spelled out, which could be a problem for novice Mac users. The menus are fairly well designed to appear and operate like those in iTunes, with each song having a check box next to it so it can be selected. DeTune is also supposed to be capable of moving large files between computers via an iPod, an additional feature one would not expect in a freeware program.

DeTune for Mac's design, performance, and price tag of zero make it a good option for those who want to keep their songs after purchasing a new computer.
