Ever wanted to use your iPod like a USB stick? Ever wanted to add and remove songs/videos easily and without needing to synchronize with your PC's music library? Ever Tried SharePod?!
SharePod is a lightweight music management program for your iPod. You can copy music and videos between your iPod and computers usually without having to install anything on the computer.

Just downloaded 3.9.6 and tested it with Nano & Touch - worked flawlessly!
Very small and simplistic, allows you to copy to/from your Ipod as well as backing up. If all you want to do is copy media to & from your ipod without Itunes bloat this will do the job - and works with Ipod Touch, something similar apps (Yamipod, Floola) can't do.
The main point of this program is to free your Ipod - remember, your Ipod is married to the PC you installed Itunes on. If you go to a friend's house and load Itunes, it will erase all your media. Sharepod works without itunes allows you to use your Ipod on any PC. Before I discovered Sharepod I downloaded a trial of 3herosoft Ipod transfer and it wiped my ipod touch! Itumes was able to restore from a backup, about 2 hours ugh!! so you need to be careful which program you use with Ipod Touch.
New website for Sharepod:

SharePod 3.9.5 is available (as of 6 Apr 2010) and it works great with the iPod Touch.
This is a great program. Easy to use and handles all my needs to backup/sync my music with out the need of iTunes. There are some nice features on ITunes but I do not like how big it has become and there is no way to install it with out items I do not want/need such as QuickTime.
Have used YamiPod with a Nano for years but it lacks the ability to work on the newer versions of iPods such as Touch or iPhone.

Does exactly as advertised. Unfortunately I still had to install iTunes to format the iPod...150+ MB install of mostly garbage (look for iTunes Lite). At least once the iPod was formatted I could delete iTunes. Now SharePod (and also Floola) work flawlessly. :)

This is a very nice program! Some people obviously didn't read the program description or tried it before writing reviews here.
The point of the program is actually that you don't need ITunes. ITunes is bloatware but the great thing about SharePod is that you can add songs from different PC's without people having ITunes installed, e.g. if you know someone who has music on their mp3 player, their harddrive, you simply plug-in your iPod and start the program on the iPod and transfer the music.
For people like me with iPod Shuffle I can't put my iPod into a different PC with ITunes and still keep the tracks on my iPod (posted about this on Apple's forum - it's not an error, ITunes is just made this way). This program does this!
Only bad thing is that the volume on the tracks on my iPod have dropped way low. I hope this will be fixed soon.

Maybe b/c iTunes sucks, if you don't feel that way, then keep using it.
