The iPod is about a lot more than just music, and a new software tool unlocks its true potential so iPod’s can seamlessly download podcasts, backup data, sync up email and view news and weather updates.

Podmaxx lets iPod’s act more like the portable hard drives they are, to enhance the iPod experience for the 30 million PC iPod users. That includes the ability to copy music from any iPod without any hassles.

“The iPod is the first revolutionary consumer gadget of the 21st century,” says Bling Software Director Lyn Bell, publisher of numerous successful PC Utilities. “PC users need easier portability for their files and, until now, there’s been a lack of iPod helper applications for PC users of iTunes. Podmaxx puts this help into one easy solution, making the iPod even more capable to keep up with everyone’s busy lives.”

Says Ian Schlueter from Digital Lifesyle magazine (, “Podmaxx, the latest in a growing list of 3rd party utilities for managing the iPod on the PC, deftly offers ease and feature-sets that rival or exceed those of its competitors.”

Podmaxx provides iPod users:

– The seamless transfer of music. It used to be impossible to send all of
your music from an iPod back to your PC. iTunes never lets you fully
synchronize your PC to your iPod. Podmaxx empowers users to easily
manage their iPod.
– The use of Windows to control an iPod. Podmaxx is a fully Windows-
integrated enhancement to iTunes for controlling iPod’s. Plug an iPod
into your computer and transfer music, video, email, contacts, calendar,
podcasts with ease.
– Podcast downloads. Get daily podcasts from your favorite source
automatically. Podcast syncing allows you to grab all your favorite
podcasts with one click.
– Internet iPod access. Sync and view Outlook email, contacts and
calendar on your iPod. Grab RSS feeds for news, weather, horoscopes, and
movie start times.
– Backup your entire PC. Use an iPod as a portable hard-drive for moving
files from home to work and to backup your music collection.
