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.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
