Floola the brilliant FREE Itunes replacement for the iPod

image001Floola is a freeware application to efficiently manage your iPod or your Motorola mobile phone (any model supporting iTunes except iPhone and iPod touch). It’s a standalone application that can be run directly from your iPod and needs no installation under Linux (any GTK2 distro), Mac OS X (10.3.9 or newer!) and Windows (98 or newer, including Vista).

Manage Music, Videos, Podcast and Photos all in one simple app, anywhere on any computer.

Installation of floola merely involves unzipping the distribution and copying the .exe file to your iPod root directory. You can then run the application to manage all your music, download podcasts, images, smart playlists and synchronise with Outlook all from the iPod – no additional software is required. The process is very easy and quick. I haven’t found any issues with the software.

Floola works on multi-platforms; Windows (from 98), MAC and any Linux distribution. Floola also integrates well with last.fm. Adding files to you iPod is now just a question of drag and drop onto the Floola interface – it couldn’t be easier. Other really handy features include a search for duplicate files, search for ‘lost’ files on the iPod, easy addition of videos, automatic conversion of audio and video that are not in recognized formats, synchronisation with Google calendars, export playlists to HTML – it will even try to FIX a iPod that is not working properly!

Clearly an essential addition to your software if you do not want to have to rely on iTunes and its limitations.


  1. First oof all I woul like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to askk if you don’t mind.

    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear
    yiur mind prior to writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minujtes aree usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Anny ideas or hints? Cheers!

    Wells Fargo’s first president. What you choose to give as
    corporate gifts will depend on who you’re giving them to and
    your industry (average life time value of a client not what’s customary in your industry;
    don’t copy your competitors, it’s rarely a good idea).
    Corporate gift ideas are freely and widely available throughout.

  3. These-printed t-shirts get immediate and continued eyeballs as
    the people you gave shirts to continue to wear them throughout
    the year. Wearing a printed t shirt is sure to drive home compliments for you simply because of the superior quality of the fabric used.

    They do custom print for Guys, girls and kids that too
    at cheaper prices in Cardiff.

  4. Asking questions are actually good thing if you are not understanding something fully, but this paragraph gives fastidious understanding even.

  5. Free is the best buzzword that goes along with iTunes. I was skeptical at first but Floola turned out to be a winner with my Motorola tunes management. Hats off to the designer.

    1. I use it all the time as it keeps the whole podcast downloading self contained to the ipod and I do not need to run any additional software – the program (.exe) literally stays on the iPod – brilliant.
