Pod Player is a freeware application to be used with your iPod. It allows you to play music from your iPod while it is connected to your PC. When launched, it will look for an attached iPod and when it finds one it will read the music database on the iPod. You will then be able to views your songs in a similar way as in iTunes (by artist, genre, album, playlist, etc). You can now also extract songs from it. There are a few little extra features such as iPod Hacks, checking for duplicates etc. You can play your music on any computer when you iPod is connected without the need to install any programs such as iTunes. Get it now!
PodPlayer 1.5.9 should fix any iTunes 7.1.1 problems, so please ensure that you are using the latest PodPlayer (Help -> About to check the version) before reporting any problems to me.
