Floola
Homepage: http://www.floola.com/modules/wiwimod/
About: Floola includes the following features: Cross platform (works on any Windows (98 and above), any Mac and any linux distribution with GTK installed), Portable (put the application on iPod and launch it on any PC), add and extract songs to and from your iPod, integrated with Last.fm, add artwork to your songs easily, lyric support even on older iPods (3G and above), Videos can be added to iPod, Growl support (Mac only),
Tutorials: Floola installation FAQs
Notes: Floola was the only of the 10 iTunes alternatives that I couldn’t personally test. Floola (at this time) requires that iTunes 7.3 has never touched your iPod (works with iTunes 7.2 and lower), and sadly 7.3 is the version of iTunes that’s on all of my computers. Update: floola now works w/ iTunes 7.3.1. But I can’t test it right away as I no longer have direct access to an iPod. But when I do, I’ll update this post accordingly.

Winamp
Homepage: http://www.winamp.com
About: Winamp includes the following features: frankly there are too many to list, so visit their features page. It does pretty much anything you can think of. But I don’t think Winamp supports cover-art – unless there’s a plugin for it, which there probably is. Winamp has been my default media player in Windows since 1997 (it finally replaced Winplay3). As a completely unrelated but ‘fun’ side note, the very first version of ICY for Linux (now known as SHOUTcast, the streaming audio software) was compiled on my computer because Justin didn’t have a Linux machine at the time.

    What about Ephpod?

  • mortimer July 9, 2007, 2:36 pm

    Great list, it’s a shame there aren’t much solutions for OSX.

    I think you should say that Amarok runs on OS X, personally I use it everyday without problems and it can be compiled automatically with Fink, no messing around, quite “simple”:

    One word:

    ROCKBOX

  • Ross McKillop July 9, 2007, 4:02 pm

    Noah –

    Actually I really did want to include Rockbox but the only iPod I have access to is an iShuffle, which isn’t supported by RB. With any luck when my roommate comes back from his vacation he’ll let me install Rockbox on his and I’ll do some kind of tutorial/overview on it.

  • John Ralston July 11, 2007, 6:20 am

    What is the song playing during the Floola screencast?

  • Tom C July 11, 2007, 12:24 pm

    Umm, how the hell did ml_ipod not make this list? Winamp’s iPod support is the product of ml_ipod’s programmer being bought out by Nullsoft.

    Currently ml_ipod has better support, more features (including video and cover art), better browsing, native transcoding, and a host of other nicer things than Winamp’s stock iPod plugin.

    And it’s open source.

    http://mlipod.sourceforge.net/

  • B July 11, 2007, 1:24 pm

    I support Noah I installed Rockbox on my Nano over a year ago and have never looked back. Real MP3 players support drag and drop of files.

  • hillary July 11, 2007, 3:21 pm

    Anapod from Red Chair. great software, though a bit of a hassle to import a very large library.

  • subcorpus July 12, 2007, 12:13 am

    hello …
    yeah … some times its really messy to use iTunes to manage one’s iPod …
    was wondering if they had any alternatives for macOS X …
    now that you’ve listed a few … will check them out …
    great article … thanks for sharing …

  • Julian Bond July 12, 2007, 7:55 am

    Big thumbs up for Sharepod. It’s ideal for people who just want to manually move tracks from PC to iPod and back again. It makes an iPod as easy to copy files as a plain old USB PMP or a PFS PMP. And zero install with Sharepod on the iPod Disk area is the icing on the cake. The one catch is when your iPod ends up in Sync mode after being removed without being ejected. You need iTunes to clear the flag.

    Maybe I’m weird (probably) but I don’t want sync. I just want to drag and drop individual directories and files. The classic problem is Y Gb of music on your PC and only X Gb available on your iPod. It’s horribly laborious to define 300 sync folders out of your 500 on the PC in almost every ipod management software. And especially in iTunes.

    Big thumbs up also for Winamp. Such a shame there isn’t an exact clone of Winamp 5 Pro on Linux. Or alternatively that Winamp 5 Pro ran under WINE. Amarok is neat but it’s persistently buggy. And after 10 years of Winamp some of the features seem odd and counter intuitive.

    Most of the programs here are for Linux only or at least originally made for Linux.
    For a Windows list, check this http://ipodmanagers.blogspot.com/ out.

  • David Cumps August 10, 2007, 2:14 pm

    You forgot another nice tool, called reTune, which also allows you to manage your iPod through Windows Explorer.

    Pretty basic even, it just syncs the content on your iPod to Apple’s gibberish iTunesDB format :)

    I just finished writing a small article about how to use it: http://blog.cumps.be/manage-ipod-through-windows-explorer/

  • mehmet August 15, 2007, 1:40 am

    I have tried many of these softwares including anapod (not mensioned here) but many of them as some short comings especialy on video support.
    Now I am using floola everyday with my ipod. and it is very stable and easier to use than itunes. They are updating frequently to support new itunes versions and adding new features.
    For example on 1.5 version now they have added builtin transconverting different file types for i pod. Now you can add youtube videos to your ipod with one click :)

  • Ross McKillop August 15, 2007, 2:00 am

    mehmet –

    floola looked great, I hope to test it (soon) now that it supports iTunes 7.3.1.

  • Gonza August 27, 2007, 12:24 pm

    Do anyone know if these programs work with a motorola v3i cellphone that has iTunes player?

  • JC October 29, 2007, 4:39 pm

    Floola is terrible. Been trying it for a couple of months now and it’s just plain broken. Good for getting out your MP3’s out of the iPod, but for everything else you’re better off with iTunes.

  • Anthony November 1, 2007, 9:04 am

    Vpod is another alternative…A very skeleton interface but gets the job done with no frills.

  • Agro November 11, 2007, 4:21 pm

    iTunes is the only ipod interface that allows me to adjust the start and stop times for songs. Or is there another ?
    This is the only function I need itunes for otherwise I would love to use another.

  • R November 26, 2007, 5:05 pm

    Is there one where you could pictures??

  • caleb November 30, 2007, 7:44 am

    I used Floola to load music at work for a while. It has more bugs than a flophouse apartment. Incredibly unstable; constantly displaying error messages (some of which made no sense); most irritating, however, is the fact that the order of the tracks displayed by the program is NOT the order of the tracks on the iPod. Every time I updated my iPod and reordered the tracks, they would inevitably be in a random order with no resemblance to the one I’d chosen. Terrible software.

  • Mike December 5, 2007, 11:07 am

    You forgot the best program for ipod – PoddoX.

  • Renato April 22, 2008, 12:51 pm

    Well, I’m really into finding alternative ways of adding music into an Ipod…

    But I am really concerned about something:

    At first, I have tried the Floola. I could add songs and I really liked the program. It seems very useful and complete. Nevertheless, while using some options, Ive noticed that MOST OF MY ARTWORK WERE SITCHED. I was hearing U2 and seeing Madonna’s artwork. I was really freak out. Imediatly then, Ive tried Yamipod, which worked fine, and I didnt notice any artwork damage to my Ipod. A few days later… my Ipod started to work unproperly. My playlists were not working fine, and I coulnd simply select a song and play it. It was working, but seemingly with remarkable malfunctioning.

    Then I wanna know if something like that has ever happenned to any of you. I’m not near the main Itunes from which I sync my music and thus I need to use some of these alternative programs..

    Glad for your help.

  • Chris Foster December 19, 2008, 9:18 am

    I recently bought a 160 GB capacity ipod. The reason was that the price per GB of storage was pretty cheap. I also have an enormous amount of music – well over the 160 GB of the ipod. My computer is a macbook pro with a hard drive capacity of 150GB – slightly less than the ipod, so I have to use the ipod in manual disk management mode. In this mode, you cannot add folders to the ipod in itunes, something which I have to do because of the vast amount of music which I have and the necessity to organise the music effectively. You can only add folders to the ipod by first introducing them into the main itunes library and then synchronising the ipod. Unfortunately, syncing the ipod causes you to lose everything on the ipod to be replaced with the (much smaller) library on the computer.

    I have found that you can use the ipod as a storage for files without losing them, even though I am synchronising the ipod with the computer, and you are warned before syncing that you will lose all music from your ipod. First, I dowloaded my music in manageable tranches from the ipod to the computer using Senuti. I then transferred these files directly from the main itunes library to the ipod (in disk management mode), and then deleted the files from the library, hence leaving plenty of space on the hard disk.

    Having transferred all my music from itunes to the hard disk of the ipod, I was able to create all the folder I needed (including some spares) in itunes, and transfer these folders (and sub-folders) to the ipod by syncing. Then, switching back to manual disk management mode, I transferred all my music directly from the ipod disk storage to the ipod music playing side.

    This use of Senuti for downloading the files, and use of the ipod to store the files has provided a very effective management technique for the high capacity ipod, and hopefully will be of use to others.

  • klabelkholosh January 16, 2009, 6:23 am

    I have to agree with most of the floola comments… it’s really buggy software. forcing a user to update to the latest version every time you run it (otherwise it quits) is not convenient… adding songs is a crap shoot, occasionally not showing up on your ipod. i’ve moved to yamipod and so far i’ve got no complaints!

  • jaamil January 19, 2009, 3:35 pm

    hey? which software/program is the easiest to load mp3 songs & pics in an i-phone or i-pod? can anyone help? i found so many options/solutions in this site, but donno which one to adopt. FYI, i have an i-phone, and it’s been cracked, so i’m afraid to use i-tunes. someone told me not to use i-tunes to avoid online hassles from Apple….plz help me someone….thanx.

  • YaBoy January 31, 2009, 1:17 pm

    Floola is the best. I don’t know about you guys, but IT NEVER asks me to update ANYTHING. Not showing up on your ipod? That’s because those individual mp3 files are corrupt.

  • Kevin February 27, 2009, 4:03 am

    Many thanks for these alternatives! I bought a new iPod Classic (120 GB) yesterday and then couldn’t get iTunes to work!?! Many other programmes couldn’t even detect the iPod when it was connected to the computer. Then I used Google and came to this webpage. I tried Floola to no avail then I tried MediaMonkey and POW! It works perfectly. So happy now. Thank you very much indeed. :-)

  • Poison3k March 2, 2009, 5:58 am

    I used SharePod when I had a non, floola was too temperamental for me.

    I prefer the iriver clix 2, use it straight out the box, no third party apps needed and looks a hell of a lot cooler too!

  • ipod help March 14, 2009, 12:31 am

    It’s worth adding that if your iPod refuses to go into Disk Mode and you hear a noticeable clicking sound, it’s likely a faulty hard drive. If the unit is a Fourth Gen, however, the problem might just be corrosion on the HDD cable and will need cleaned periodically. Good luck & I hope this helps.

  • joudheus April 9, 2011, 4:10 pm

    Just a heads up, songbird dropped support for the Ipod. You have to use an older version of songbird to get the plugin to be compatible. They dropped it at version 1.3. The current is 1.9.3 and there is still no plugin for the ipod. Just a heads up. Sort of makes songbird worthless for so many people

  • Rose May 16, 2011, 9:56 pm

    Does any of these programs allow you to transfer in playlists from iTunes? I lost my gift iPod and won’t pay for one, but I’d hate to have to remake my brilliant and irreplaceable playlists. I’m thinking a Sansa for my new player, but I really want one that’s easy to connect and use.

  • Former Songbird user June 13, 2011, 8:38 am

    Guess the list should be fixed.: the Songbird folks dropped Linux supportt :-( Pretty stupid decission I guess but I don’t know their reasons. Strikes me odd as I thought it was a XUL based application and more or less platform indepentend.

    Might consider Clementine Player now.

  • Sara Grosi August 2, 2011, 1:14 pm

    I’d wish to own a music player not tired to iTunes or Amazon but syncs with any. Currently I use Panamp iPhone app. It has basic iOS music player features, and it is outstanding by it’s ability to make dynamic queues: quick mix of selected tracks
    and power search that quickly and efficiently find the artict, album and tracks. Most compatible with iTunes collection. And developers are planning to integrate iCloud in the fall (import tracks over both Wi-Fi and 3G)

    What’s happened to Winamp? I bought the gold membership years ago and now it’s in a coma.

    WinAMP was purchased by a company named “Radionomy” (from AOL) and in *theory* they’re “working on it” – but that’s been the status for over a year now. iTunes does have 64bit support, if that makes any difference.

    In terms of wanting a music player for your PC (that supports scrobbling to last.fm) – http://www.last.fm/group/Does+It+Scrobble has a bit list of the Apps that support last.fm. Of the Apps in that list, I would recommend VLC (it’s plain and boring but WORKS), Foobar2000, and though I’ve never used it, I’ve heard decent things about MediaMonkey. Hope this helps :)

    Thanks a lot! You know I also bought Media Monkey last year because I had iPod issues, but once that was resolved I never got to use it properly. I’ll give it a try. Hopefully it won’t go away like Winamp or MusicMatch..I sure can pick them. Lol
