iPod.iTunes gives the choice to synchronize tracks, playlists or both - automatically with one click, or manually. A ‘manual mode’ creates a list of iPod tracks not in iTunes, and allows to copy desired tracks from that list. With every synchronization iPod.iTunes creates a date&time stamped iTunes playlist containing the tracks which were copied. This gives the option to easily add those tracks to existing playlists or to create new ones from the transferred tracks.

What’s new in this version:

+ Compatibility for iPod firmware v3.0.1

License: Shareware
System Requirements: Mac OS 10.1.2 - 10.3.2, iTunes 2.0.4 - 4.2, iPod firmware 1.0 - 3.0.1

I hate these apps that build on generic Mac names.  So misleading.

“iPod.iTunes is the only utility which provides real synchronization of tracks and playlists from your iPod(s) to your Mac(s).”

That’s false marketing at best, probably more accurately, a blatant lie.

iPodRip (my personal favorite) and podworks are both far far better than this crappy little app.

So how long does the developer think this application which infringes on not one, but two! Apple trademarks, is going to be around?

I’m on Mac OS 9 and can not find itunes software that supports 9. Does anyone know where to locate it on this site?

Justinnow-iTunes can’t be used with any os9 under 9.2.2-check your version of os9 you probably need to upgrade…

Justinnow - iTunes v1.1 and v2.0 work with OS 9.0.4 or later. Download v1.1 here: http://a1408.g.akamai.net/5/1408/1388/20011106/1a1a1acd38990667d0fe67d53baad839a91985ea187bea5786ef43b8268bfe2da21544b11275/iTunes.smi.bin

then use software update to get v2.0

yeah there are heaps of things like this for windows and mac, the claim about it being the only one is a joke…if u want a windows app that does the same, ipod agent is very good, and if u want something u can run on any computer without having to install anything, have a look at something like sharepod, which runs straight off your ipod

the more we see apps like this the better. apple clearly don’t care about what users think, but always monitor what developers are up to. i bet features like this will be in apple’s itunes very soon.

if you want apple to pull their finger out then support programs like this one. apple hates it.

There’s a lot of flak about this app in the comments above.  Most of it seems to come from its name.  If the developer had put some more thought into the name (and perhaps he should have) I wonder if people would disparage it quite as much.  I own both this and iPodRip.  I can say without question that based on my personal experience, iPod.iTunes has been able to help me in situations where iPodRip, for whatever annoying, maddening reason, just wouldn’t copy the tunes to my computer like it’s supposed to.

Please HELP.  Purchased a G4 Apple Note book and I loved it.  I was working in Africa & not able to get any Apple software.  So after 1 year and my return to the west I (do I dear say it) got a Sony note which has served me (not as well as my G4) well.  I have run in a problem though.  I own a 40G iPod with some music from 2 Sony Computers.  I want to synch them both together on one iPod without loosing all my songs to the newest synch.  Please can someone tell explain to me how I can do this.  Thank you kindly.  .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

Shame on Ipodlounge for posting this blurb without indicating it is a third party product right up front. If rogue app developers want to decieve the public - buyer beware, but for Ipodlounge to do it to its own subscribers- that’s downright sleezy! Please edit this totally misleading post.
