Notpod 1.4.1
Set up your device via Notpod then sync music to it effortlessly from iTunes.

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.

Oh sure, you can do it manually, but it’s a bind. Far better, then, to use a third-party tool to do the hard work for you. Notpod, previously known as iTunes Agent, is designed to work with any mobile device that appears as a removable drive in Windows.

Once installed, it places an icon in the Notification area of the Taskbar – right-click this and choose Preferences to set up a connection to your mobile device, which needs to be connected when you set it up.

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 organised and named on your mobile device. Once done, click Close and you’re ready to roll.

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 right-click the Notpod Notification area icon again, but this time choose Synchronize devices. Confirm the path is the correct one and click OK to sync music from iTunes to your device.

It's all straightforward from here on in – edit your playlist and re-sync with your device to update it. Notpod supports multiple devices too, perfect if you have a phone and a MP3 player you wish to keep in sync.

Warning: Notpod should not be used with a portable device that already has music stored on it – the program will delete any existing music from the folder before you begin unless it matches the names of tracks being synchronised.

Verdict:

The perfect tool for those who’ve switched from iOS to another device only to find iTunes won’t play ball.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.82

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
