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

Just plain works. The tagging/folder structure customization is a nice feature at this price point, too.

Was cleaning up some files on Mac and did something to iTunes that it wanted to update iPhone and clean out files. This happened once before and the thought of recreating all that music made me sick; I also wanted to move some music to an MP3 player in an old car.

Hear from buddy about Expod and decided I had nothing to loose and I lost nothing.
It moved all the music off of iPhone into a new file with each singer having its own file of music. Opened up first file and clicked on song; iTunes started playing it. Tried moving the next singer's 17 song file directly to iTunes; they all transferred over with no hiss, spit or anything. INCREDIBLE. One very happy camper and the 5 Mac owners in this household have signed up to this site. We truly thank you for saving us from a real mess.

I just downloaded and used this program without a hitch! Thank you sooo much for the amazing software. Music went into iTunes seamlessly and the whole process for 8GB only took around fifteen minutes or so. I was so worried I would lose all my music after switching to a new mac, but not anymore! Thanks again! Oh and I have listened to a bunch of music and so far none of the 'hiccup' problems previously mentioned. Everything works perfectly!

This is a very nice application and the price tag is awesome. Thanks for doing this!, after seeing people charging 20 USD for this kind of simple application, I want to congratulate you for having developed this for the only reason of learning more Objective-C , and GUI programming.

Guys charging 20 USD for this kind of application should take your example as a lesson ( it's also open source for the ones who don't know )

Thanks again for this! :-)

expod 0.7.2 - I lost my iTunes library during a sync with my iPod Touch. I still have no idea how or why but the every media file on the external hard drive I keep that library on was erased (oddly, the folders remained - only the media files were removed; and the metadata was corrupted!) Keeping this as short as possible, the material on the iPod was the ONLY source for all my music, audio book, podcast and movie files.

I looked at the programs available, reading reviews, etc., and went with expod and it worked flawlessly. Every file on the iPod was transferred back to that external hard drive, in the exactly the same file heirarchy, in about 20 minutes (for about 26 GB). expod suggested the file string but if I'd wanted to change it the option was clearly offered and even I could have managed it. As it happens, the format was the standard iTunes uses and no changes were necessary.

When done, all I had to do was launch iTunes and click on a song link and the music played. Or the podcast, movie, etc. No hickups or issues at all. I give it five stars, unconditionally.

Just downloaded it and it seems to have worked flawlessly. I watched this video before using it so I knew where to go with it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Nhs1M8V-7s&feature=related

The big thing that I was looking for was recovering some videos, which it did with ease. It was also nice that it was able to do them all at one time, as opposed to one by one. And I was able to choose where to save them to, so I put them on an external drive.

Deffo the answers to my prayers.... I was so dreading having to re-rip all those videos, but, alas, no longer a problem.

I am sorry I found this program. Like another reviewer said, it left 'blips' and 'hiccups' on the songs transferred and worst of all it wrote over the remaining unused space (almost 30 gigs!) maxing out my ipod! This is 'invisible' data and so far I haven't been able to remove it.

As a result it pretty much freezes up my iTunes and triggers a bunch of warnings that I've never seen before. I was transferring from a 60gig.

ANYBODY that could tell me how to delete this invisible data so that I don't have to reformat my ipod would be greatly appreciated.

Found and transferred all files from ipod to my mac. However all of the transferred songs have blips and hiccups and are basically ruined.

Also it didn't just copy from the ipod, it removed them all and left my ipod blank. There may be a setting for this, but if so the default setting apparently was to remove them from the ipod.

Seemed so promising... but try a couple songs first and listen for errors. It's soooo close to being great, I will check back for updates and try again if fixed.

This app kicks ass.

Not only is it free, but it works fantastically. Much better than some other programs that are not free.

I had a Windows formatted iPod (I'm on a Mac obviously) and it was able to extract both music and videos from it. Awesome app! My only request is that a "Video" section is added so you can see all the video files (although it's not a big deal right now, as you can simply look through the entire library which shows everything from music to video).

Keep up the good work!!

Poikkeus had trouble on 11 Jan 2009
"No iPods Found" message on desktop. Apparently, expod was unable to locate the files on my Touch - though the app is pleasingly simple and easy to use. The expod blurb suggests that it will work with all ipods, even Touches.

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.)
