Podestal allows one to easily download any files stored on Apple's iPod. The application provides two views into the files on an iPod; a file view and a music view. The file centric view works much like the Finder's list view. The music view parses the ID3 tags associated with the MP3 files and organizes the various mp3 tracks by Artist, Album and, finally, tracks.

An icon view at the bottom of the window allows the current selection to be copied via drag and drop. Anything that can accept filenames via the clipboard can be a drag target; Finder, Mail messages, etc. Multiple files or music
Requirements
PPC, MacOS X 10.1 or later

Does what it says... sometimes. I tried it on three computers, one computer it continually crashed. This is a good app for getting a few albums or several specific songs off the iPod but the interface won't let you select folders. Meaning to get an album you have to open the nested artist folder, then open the nested album folder, then select the songs. If you have a lot of music to copy, it is too time consuming to open each individual folder to get to the music files. But beggers can't be choosers. Going the freeware rout to manage ipod files requires several apps & scripts. You then learn to use the one most appropriate for what you want to do at that moment. This is good to have. If you want to get every music file off your iPod, I recommend "Invisibles", an app not usually associated with iPod. It makes all invisible files, well, visible.

Works as advertised. The 'Music' view is great although the ID3 tag parser has some minor bugs. The user interface for file copying is a tad strange but gets the job done. Can't beat the price.

I thought this program was great. I mistakenly saved all my music through itunes when re-formatting my hard disc and this program allowed me to save all 775 of my songs w/ no problems. It also took me no time at all to get them on my hard disc. I highly recomend it.

Podestal scans for a mounted iPod when launched. As well, the application should detect and automatically display the contents of any iPod that is hot-connected to the machine. Podestal also listens for unmount events and updates its display accordingly. FireWire Disk Use must be enabled for Podestal to work! Conveniently, if Podestal is running and you enable FireWire Disk Use and click OK, Podestal will receive a mount notification and update itself appropriately. Likewise, if you disable the ability for the iPod to act as a FireWire Disk, Podestal will correctly update the display.
