I somewhat like this program. I actually just used this only extract the playlists only since that's all I need it for. It's quite a while on my 800 Mhz iBook G4. I'm guessing because one of my smart playlists has over 3000 entries on it. I thought it froze but I'm guessing it was just taking its time.
I found it easy to use, however, so that's something I rate higher but considering the price of the product (40 bucks? Cut that price in half or even lower and you got a sale!), there are not enough features to justify that, IMHO. Add a few more iPod-hacking stuff and others and MAYBE I would pay.
There's a couple things I don't like about this program, aside from the price. First, I can't select which songs or playlist(s) I want to extract and even if he did add that feature, I would guess that only half of the Selected items would be imported in the unregistered version vs. half of everything. Annoying, yes but I guess it's to make sure that people don't bypass the shareware limitation. Running the Synchronization again, unfortunately, did not extract some of the remaining tracks missed due to the limitation, just the same tracks as the first pass so it's pretty much rigged if unregistered. Next, I really don't like the fact it quits iTunes when I hit Cancel.
Other than that, I think it is a decent program for what it does but I really don't agree with the asking price. I'm sure the author worked his butt off to make this program good but the reality of things, the end user most likely wouldn't care and if the price is too high (considering other programs), it's too high.
Hope that makes some kind of sense.
