Anapod Explorer integrates into Windows Explorer, so managing your
iPod becomes a simple matter of dragging and dropping. This
lightweight program uses other Explorer controls as well, such as
Send To menus and copy and paste. Among Anapod Explorer's dizzying
array of cool features are automatic repairs to mislabeled or
duplicate songs, playlist management, and support for transferring
files from iPod to PC and vice versa. And unlike iTunes, Anapod
Explorer invites you to use templates to customize the way your
iPod displays tracks. Anapod supports MP3, WAV, WMA, iTunes Music
Store music, and more. And though it lacks a built-in media player,
the Anapod Xtreamer lets you play songs through your favorite media
player via HTTP streaming.
This great program comes at a cost, however. Depending on what
model of iPod you have, prices range from $20 to $30. Though there
is a free trial edition, its features are very limited. And like
other software listed here, Anapod Explorer currently doesn't
support the iPod Touch or the iPhone.

can download the appropriate version for your iPod. Prices vary by
iPod model; only the limited-feature Trial version is free.
