iSyncer creates a copy of your playlists into your chosen directory. The target of this directory can also be a removable media (eg USB stick or SD card). With the application iSyncer you have never a manual effort to export your music from iTunes. iSyncer will not automatically store your music by artist, album. Because you decide the format to store your music. iSyncer provides a copy of the playlist tracks directly to the desired destination directory (also removable disks). Optionally, you can create playlist formats m3u or m3u8 (since version 1.3.6).
You can manage your playlists for synchronization with user-defined profiles. You can select an iTunes playlist and a matching synchronization format (eg Playlist/Artist - Song) and add to a profile. During the synchronization, the filename of a song is generated corresponding to the synchronization format (also called config) from the ID3 tags of a song. For synchronization, you have only to select the target directory and a profile and start with one click. The synchronization ensures that the current playlist tracks are stored in the target directory. This means: With synchronization new songs are added, changed songs (eg change of ID3 tags) are updated and no longer existing songs of an iTunes playlist are deleted. With iSyncer you have the possibility to convert your music into the formats .m4a, .mp3, .ogg, .wav or .flac by synchronisation.
I'm repeating my review of the Win version (I've used both). As of v2.6 it does everything well. For example, if you have some lossless tracks in your iTunes (via CD ripping, etc.) it will downconvert to a format / bitrate that your car likes and that saves USB space. Its output folder/file arrangement is not limited as in the early version and now outputs virtually any arrangement you can think of to suit your car and/or your preferences. It also truly syncs: if you delete a track from a synced playlist in iTunes (and it's not in any other synced playlist) it will delete that track from the USB drive, opening up space for other tracks. Other goodies, too.
None are apparent.
Great software. Lightweight, meaning it uses minimal memory and does not try to take unwanted control of your music library or playback. Best out there in my view and I've probably tried all the alternatives. Seriously.
