A little over a year ago I received an IPod Nano for attending a tech course (Cisco Wireless LAN Advanced Topics, if you’re curious). I had seen GTKPod but I didn’t really care for how it organized stuff. I suppose I could have read the manual, but I like instant gartification, and I wasn’t getting it. For a while I was using kipodslave, a KIO slave for Konqueror, and didn’t mind it, even thought I’m not a fan of KDE apps. Eventually I came across two similar apps: YamiPod and Floola. Both apps have versions for Windows, Mac OS, and Linux. Both are available as prebuilt binaries for all platforms so there’s no compilation required. At the time YamiPod wouldn’t work for me, so I tried <a href=”http://www.floola.com”>Floola.</a> I enjoyed using drag and drop to load files to my IPod, as well as being able to copy files from my Ipod to another computer. Floola is essentially a portable app, so you could throw it on a flash drive or even on your IPod and load music wherever you go.
Floola is up to version 2.9 and supports the new generation of IPods. You can find a Ubuntu package at Getdeb
