Why? Because iTunes sucks. That's why. iTunes if fuck1ng terrible. If you are too lame to see that, I can't help you. Stop reading.
If you've made it this far, you are looking for a way to copy music (or anything else) directly from your ipod to your computer. Or somebody else's iPod. Hello, music sharing..."May I borrow your ipod for 5 minutes" (ripppp)
Two good applications for this are:
To understand the differences quickly, look at this way:
- Both will get the job done
- CopyTrans Manager has "more features" (i.e. bigger software)
- Sharepod is free
The choice is yours. Both Sharepod and CTM can easily copy files back and forth from ipod to computer. No iTunes bullshit. Need all your songs from your ipod copied to your laptop? Done. Want to add videos without the hassle of iTunes? Done.
I'll give Sharepod the nod because it's free. But if you know what you're doing...so is CTM.
Enjoy the sharing, and always remember, tis better to give than receive!
