Please Note: expod has been replaced by DeTune and is no longer under active development.
expod is a small utility for getting songs off your iPod. iTunes does a fantastic job of copying music onto an iPod, but lacks the ability to go the other way. With expod you can copy any or all your songs off your iPod, using whatever file naming convention you like.
expod came about partly because I was annoyed at the way Apple decided to limit the functionality if iTunes, but also because I wanted to learn how to code for Mac OS X. Developing expod has been an exercise in learning Objective-C, Xcode, and GUI programming. It's still a bit rough around the edges. Have a look at the source code, I'd be happy to hear from anyone who has any additions or improvements.
expod was built and tested on OS X 10.4, and may work on other versions. It's a Universal Binary and should be fine on Intel Macs, but I've only tested on PPC. (Please let me know of any success or lack thereof running on different versions of OS X.)
