The next tab is probably my favorite option; “Transfer Songs from iPod”. Whenever I reformat, it’s always a pain to go through and unhide the iPod and then download all the songs with decrypted names. I always had to listen to each song and change the title. All you do is select which songs you want on your computer and then click “Transfer Songs” on the upper left-hand menu and then specify the location where you want the songs; piece of cake.
The last tab is “Update iTunes Information” which is where the user can change the rating of the song, play count, and last played date. After you have seen all the tabs under “iPod Information” you can really get a feel for what this program is capable of. The black help bar on the top really helps because it tells you exactly what needs to happen in order to complete the action you want to execute.
Above “iPod Information” you’ll see the next category we are going to look into; “My Information”. All of the tabs under this section are in association with Microsoft Outlook. You can link your email, contacts, tasks, and calendar to replicate onto your iPod.
The last category is “Internet Information”. Here you can add anything you want to your iPod, including driving directions, podcasts, daily horoscopes, and weather forecasts. I was disappointed that they didn’t have a section for games because I can’t tell you how sick I am of solitaire on the iPod. The screenshot on the right displays a portion of the plugins that you can load onto your iPod.
