Podpourri, Dinu Gherman http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/15530 Search songs on an attached iPod via regular expressions and copy them either to a single folder or a tree of folders on your local machine. Songs can be searched with various attributes, like title, artist or album. Playlists are currently not yet supported, but are on the wishlist. Serious technical issues and a reliance on the Python programming environment that isn't well implemented makes this a product that is best avoided. $ 0 Avoid!

iPDA, ZappTek http://www.zapptek.com/ipda/ Who needs a PDA when you have an iPod? Transfer your PIM data to your iPod so it's available whenever you need it; iPDA supports transferring information from Entourage, Stickies, Mail, Address Book and iCal, and web based calendaring systems such as Google Calendar. You can transfer Word, PDF, Pages, RTF and text documents for quick access and reading on the go. You can even download RSS feeds, weather forecasts and news headlines directly to your iPod. We rate it in the middle. Many users have had great experiences with this software. Adjectives such as "Awesome!" are often seen, along with "can't live without"...However others have had intermittent issues, mostly with Mail. Furthermore, bug releases are slow to be made. ZappTek is a small shop and has limited resources - and even Apple can take a long time to resolve PDA sync issues...The problem is that once you've committed to this tool as part of your workflow, you depend on it. $ 19.95 3 Stars OS X / Windows Data Synchronization Category Rating Price Platform Manufacturer's Description: Digital Mania Review:

Pod Load, RiotRun http://www.riotrun.com/ Want to grab a bite to eat while listening to music? Maybe you want to find out where the Museum of Natural History is located. Or, perhaps you want to find the three closest clubs for a night out dancing? Well, as easy as it is to download a song on iTunes into your iPod, now you can have a complete directory of restaurants, nightlife and tourist attractions for any major city on your iPod as well. On Demand Information. That is the power of the Podload. Interesting concept that could reduce the weight of any backpack. Price is per City/State pack, starting at $2.99. Value will increase if they end up offering more than the current few American cities and States. $ 2.99 4 Stars OS 9 / OS X / Windows Data Synchronization Category Rating Price Platform Manufacturer's Description: Digital Mania Review:

PodQuest, Mibasoft http://www.mibasoft.com/ Download driving directions to your iPod. PodQuest installs a menu in the upper right corner of your menu bar. The menu gives you quick access to the driving directions from MapQuest. When you have found your driving directions, you select "Download Directions To iPod" from the PodQuest menu. Creator Michael Balle-Pedersen joined the Apple team on December 4, 2006 - and moved from Denmark to Cupertino. We wish him luck! Sadly, it means that Mibasoft shareware products are no longer available to purchase or download.This is rather unfortunate because, while having some technical issues at times, PodQuest offered pretty much one-of-a-kind integration with Google Maps. However, we can probably assume that Micheal's work saw integration in the iPhone's new features. All was not lost. $ 9.95 3 Stars OS X Data Synchronization Category Rating Price Platform Manufacturer's Description: Digital Mania Review:
Podtext X, THHDesign http://homepage.sunrise.ch/mysunrise/thhdesign/more.html Transfer text-based notes into your iPod that can be read just like Contacts directly on the iPod's screen. Podtext is able to transfer the complete Macintosh charset including characters used in German, French, Italian or other foreign languages. While other apps max out at 1000 characters per note; Podtext can extend that limit to 2000 characters. Pretty cool and free utility to bring reading material to your iPod. It works well, does what it claims to do, is stable - and the price is right. $ 0 4 Stars OS X Data Synchronization Category Rating Price Platform Manufacturer's Description: Digital Mania Review:
iSpeak It, ZappTek http://www.zapptek.com/ispeak-it/ Listen to your documents on your iPod. Take any document or RSS feed and convert it into an MP3/AAC track in iTunes using your Mac's built-in text-to-speech capabilities (check out our TTS page if you'd like to find better voices). Download news, weather forecasts and driving directions. From there it's a quick sync to your iPod and away you go! Not a bad idea - and not a bad implementation of that idea. However, similar solutions are available cheaper, if not free. Nor does it change the fact that, at least until 10.5 is released, the built-in text-to-speech voices are atrocious. Then again: It may be a boon to those with vision impairment, bad voices and all.Version 3.0 of iSpeak It adds Xgrid support to harness the power of multiple Macs to convert sections of a document into audio tracks. That feature at least puts iSpeak It a notch above other contenders for large jobs. $ 19.95 3 Stars OS X File Converter - Audio Category Rating Price Platform Manufacturer's Description: Digital Mania Review:

iPod Access, Findley Designs, Inc http://www.drewfindley.com/findleydesigns/ipodaccess/index.html Application for copying songs from your iPod back to your Macintosh. Unlike some other iPod applications on the market today iPod Access utilizes the iPods internal database to display song information. By using the database song listings can be displayed instantly, playlist data can be viewed, and songs purchased from the iTunes Music Store can be displayed properly. Other applications must fetch song data from each song individually, making them extremely slow and incompatible with file formats other than regular MP3s. $ 19.99 4 Stars OS X / Windows File Transfer Category Rating Price Platform Manufacturer's Description: Digital Mania Review:

iPod Music Liberator, Zelek Software http://www.zeleksoftware.com/products.htm Allows users to copy music directly from their iPod to any computer, filling in a missing feature of iTunes. You see, iTunes only allows for a one-way transfer of music from your computer to your iPod. But what if you want to move music to another authorized computer? What if you want to make a backup of your music? What if your computer crashes and you lose all of the music on your computer? What if you buy a new computer and need to move your music? What if ... ? Use the iPod Music Liberator for all of your iPod music copying needs. Not a bad program, but faces good competition from others that are either cheaper or free.Furthermore, for something called 'Liberator" the registration requests are very aggressive. Price issue has been recognized by Zelek and they offer a comb deal on their web site: A discount of up to 50% is available on purchasing multiple licenses. $ 15 3 Stars OS X / Windows File Transfer Category Rating Price Platform Manufacturer's Description: Digital Mania Review:

A very good and affordable program to transfer songs from you iPod.However free solutions abound in the iPod ecosystem - and many are neither better nor worse, such as PodWorks - while similarly priced products may offer more features.Missing is the ability to copy playlists and ratings... $ 7.95 3 Stars OS X File Transfer Category Rating Price Platform Manufacturer's Description: Digital Mania Review:
PodMaster, Chris Calvert http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/6791 A small utility that makes the moving of files from the iPod to a second computer easier by listing all the songs on the iPod and allowing the transfer of selected songs to a folder of choice. When it works, it works fine: PodMaster has some issues with newer models and newer OS versions: It only works with first generation iPod, and Apple iPod Firmware 1.1 (not 1.2 or 1.3).Nor does it works under OS X.However, considering that it would be hard to find another utility that DOES work with OS 9 and is still available, it may get you out of a bind...Otherwise - well, fairly useless... $ 8 2 Stars OS 9 File Transfer Category Rating Price Platform Manufacturer's Description: Digital Mania Review:
PodMonkey, Dave Hayden http://www.opaque.net/podmonkey/ Synchronizes your iPod with the Finder Last update was in 2003, lack of support and changes in Apple's way of handling things means using this application may corrupt you files and force you to restore your iPod. That is - if it launches without a crash.Creator later said it should have been called a beta version. With so many good alternatives, we say you'd better keep far, far away from this free application. $ 0 Avoid!

PodUtil will sort the copied files by Artist and/or by Album, and can assosiate copied files with many MP3 players (useful if you don't want all the music files opening back up with iTunes). It can also manage iPod contacts. It will scan the iPod you select for contacts, and display them in a list. You can then edit or create contacts, which are saved automatically.

PodWorks, Buzz Andersen http://www.scifihifi.com/podworks/ Mac OS X (Cocoa) application that compensates for the iPod's only downside: Apple only allows you to copy songs to your iPod. If you have two Macs and want to use your iPod to transfer music between them, or you only store your MP3s on your iPod and need to copy them back onto your hard drive after a disk failure, you are out of luck! A simple program that does what it claims to do without much frills but with efficiency.

iPod Launcher, Zapptek http://www.zapptek.com/ipod-launcher/ You have plenty to do when you connect your iPod. Wouldn't it be great if it all happened automatically? Well now it can. With iPod Launcher you specify items via System Preferences and, whenever you connect your iPod, they launch. It may look expensive at first for a one-trick poney, but note that this is actually donationware and not shareware - contributions are welcome if voluntary. Apple should have this nifty utility with every iPod. Great tool! $ 4.95 4 Stars OS X General Utilities Category Rating Price Platform Manufacturer's Description: Digital Mania Review:

Micromat is the maker of Techtool and other serious Mac utilities. It is thus no surprise to se then enter the iPod market with this product.Sadly it does not follow in Techtool's footstep for ease of use and reliability. Not a bad product, just a bit lackluster.It is greedy in hard drive space, needing twice the contiguous space of the largest file fragment to operate, so it will not work on a full iPod - and who wants to sacrifice a large chunk of storage space to "potential later use"?Yet one can hope Micromat works a bit more on this and irons out the bugs.

iPodLinux, ipodlinux.org http://ipodlinux.org/Main_Page iPodLinux is an open source venture into porting Linux onto the iPod. So far, we have successfully ported a customized uClinux kernel to the iPod, and written a simple user interface for it dubbed podzilla. Additional applications and modules have been written, adding many capabilities not found in Apple's firmware.iPodLinux is currently safe to install on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation iPods. Development is currently on-going on later generations of iPod, including the fourth generation click wheel, mini, U2, Photo/Color, Nano, and Video. Donations always help when it comes to supporting new hardware No - it is not perfect. In fact it still has some serious bugs and sharp edges. However, just for the coolness of it - and for the hard work involved - we grant it a 5-stars rating.It does a lot of very useful things that Apple has yet to include with the iPod. On older models, it catches up with recent possibilities and more - consider, watch a video on a 1st generation 5GB! $ 0 5 Stars OS 9 / OS X / Windows OS Replacement Category Rating Price Platform Manufacturer's Description: Digital Mania Review:
