Notpod (formerly iTunes Agent) is an application that enables many noniPod MP3 players to be used with iTunes. Using Notpod you can easily synchronize playlists in iTunes with any cell phone, PSP, or nonApple MP3 player that connects to your PC as a removable drive with just a few mouseclicks.
There’s one major drawback to using iTunes: it ties your music collection to your computer or Apple’s iOS devices. Switch to another MP3 player or mobile device (such as Android) and suddenly keeping your music in sync between iTunes and your new player is a less pleasurable experience.
iTunes is a great music player and organizer. Unfortunately iTunes is made to only synchronize with iPods. Not everyone owns an iPod, though Apple certainly would have loved that. How great would it not be if you could synchronize your noniPod MP3 player, your Playstation Portable and your Walkman phone with your iTunes Library?
Now switch to iTunes and you’ll see Notpod has set up a folder (My Devices) under Playlists with your device name in it. Just drag your desired music to this playlist, then rightclick the Notpod Notification area icon again, but this time chooses Synchronize devices. Confirm the path is the correct one and click OK to sync music from iTunes to your device.
[advt]Give the connection a name, select your device’s music folder and its root directory (for Notpod’s benefit) and then pick a synchronization pattern. This basically means choose how you want your music organized and named on your mobile device. Once done, click Close and you’re ready to roll.
