I have no iTunes installed at all. It works great. It's all I use to add and delete music on my iPod nano.
The company web site now claims to offer a driver you can install so there's no need to install iTunes, but after several tries I could not get it to install. So the bottom line here is you need iTunes after all, which is pretty horrible, and I didn't find this software to be much better. Not their fault, I think Apple needs to provide a better interface that acts like a simple file manager where you can create folders, drag and drop, etc. The best thing I found so far is to install iTunes, and then use Windows File Manager. Still not the best, but it's a start.
I will definitely choose this over Itunes any day. I just found another Ipod manager, this is...better than that one. It's fast, easy to use, converts music automatically for the ipod nano, which I'm using currently so .mp3 straight up won't work unless it creates that special little file to play them,this does.
The interface is awesome, straight forward, anyone can use it. The only issue I will state is that you MUST, I repeat MUST wait until it says it's OK to plug in the Ipod. No, it won't explode or take over your mind but the EJECT will NOT work from the program unless you do this. In other words, don't connect the Ipod until it states to which only takes a second or two, no waiting time really.
You can make virtual changes and then choose to apply them after which is great if you made a mistake during your tinkering.
So unlike Itunes, it's light, no extra bloat, won't duplicate and mess up every song in your library or folder and just plain old works.
Wish my Ipod touch was working, when I fix it, will be anxious to see how this works with it.
User friendly, quick to learn and effective. Faster and easier than iTunes.
