“There’s no disputing that iTunes boasts an excellent feature set right out of the installation package. However, if you really plan to stretch its powers to the max, you may want to think about downloading a few third-party applications,” CNET reports. “Download.com offers a number of iTunes add-ons that add functionality and convenience to this already-great jukebox for the Mac.”
Here are a few you can check out:
• Fetch Art for iTunes (Free)
• Synergy (Free to try; $5.00 to buy)
• RadioLover (Free to try; $15.00 to buy)
• iTunes Monitor (Free)
• iPodRip (Free to try; $14.95 to buy)
More info and links about each application mentioned above is in the full article here.
MacDailyNews Take: We can attest to iPodRip’s abilities; that’s what we use – for testing purposes only, of course. Also for the list, in our opinion, would be Griffins iFill which streams mp3 files from thousands of free radio stations directly to your iPod. With iFill, you can go to bed while charging your iPod, and wake up to an iPod full of new music without having to search through your record collection, browse the iTunes Store, or rip any CDs.
