Ever wanted to grab some songs off a friends iPod and put them onto your computer? Apple makes this difficult, by renaming all the files in the music folder of your iPod and placing them in obscure sub-directories (blame the record companies). This is where Senuti comes into play. Despite the odd name (iTunes spelled backwards), it's a very useful little app.
Senuti displays the contents of your iPod in an iTunes-esque interface, showing your playlists and your iPod library. It then gives you the option to either export the songs of your choice from your iPod to a folder on the computer, or directly into the iTunes library. Senuti will also detect duplicate songs if you already have them in the iTunes library and either skip the track, rename it, or overwrite it.
Senuti can also copy across the track's artwork so you can have those too. Playlists from the iPod can also be exported and you can export directly to a playlist within iTunes instead of directly into the library. Perfect for giving someone that mix you worked hard on.
I have the DMG file stored on my iPod, so if I'm at a friend’s place and they want some of my songs, I can install it on their machine and dump all the music over. Every iPod owner should have this on their iPod, just in case.
Get Senuti now from Fadingred.org, where it’s fantastically free!
