iFill is the only application that can stream free music from thousands of internet radio stations directly onto your iPod. Without the need to store that music in iTunes, you never mess up your own music library. Instead, you use iFill to add new music to your iPod while it charges or simply to listen to a station directly on your Mac.
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. I'm a huge fan of Radio Paradise, and have always been frustrated that I couldn't listen to it in the car. And then I discovered iFill, one of the simplest and most useful apps on my Mac. Aside from what it does -- which is to take internet radio streams and capture them to directly to your iPod -- the WAY it does it is simple and elegant. It actually works like an Apple app.
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. I've recorded 8 hours or music the night before a trip. The following day, the iPod was connected to my car's radio. I just went to the iFill playlist and played the contents.
There's a gap between songs but other than that, iFill works great!
As for those having problems with iTunes... well, iFill *does not* and *never* requires iTunes. It's in the manual, specifically sections 1.1, 7.3, and 7.4. Check it out :)
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. WARNING! Not compatible with iTunes 7.
Griffin will not reply to requests for a bug fix and refuse to accept calls.
This company appears to have been sold to a bunch of losers who don't give a crap about its products.
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. $20.00 is waaay too much.
I'd be prepared to part with $5.00 for this software, which only really takes one step out of the normal process of getting streamed music to iPod.
Oh, and to the previous reviewer, please only submit your comments once, not 3 times! (Less one star to balance.)
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. Griffin doesn't even have the professionalism/common sense to post a note on their website advising that this application doesn't function with the current version of iTunes.
