expod is a small utility for getting songs off your iPod. iTunes does a fantastic job of copying music onto an iPod, but lacks the ability to go the other way. With expod you can copy any or all of your songs (or videos) off your iPod, using whatever file naming convention you like.

expod copies your files back to your hard-drive untouched, and does not remove DRM from songs you bought on iTunes.

expod uses the disk mode functionality in older iPods. Starting with version 0.5, iPhones, iPod Touches and newer iPods are also supported.

expod is completely free, and includes source code if you'd like to see how it works. If you're interested in reading the license, you can find it here.

expod is a Universal Binary, and requires OS X 10.4 or later. If you are using an earlier version of OS X, you can try expod 0.3.


expod-0.7.3.dmg including source.


expod came about partly because I was annoyed at the way Apple limits the functionality if iTunes, but also because I wanted to learn how to code for Mac OS X. Developing expod has been an exercise in learning Objective-C, Xcode, and GUI programming.
