Podshanking is the latest trend to move music files between two iPods without the need for a computer. It’s a quick and easy way to share your favorite songs with your friends or simply transfer them to a newer iPod.
How Does it Work?
The first version of Podshanking involves connecting an iPod’s headphone connector to a voice recorder device via a cable. The device records the song that is being played through the headphone jack in real-time, which can then be transferred to any other iPod through its headphone jack.
Is the Quality Good?
The sound quality may not be the best due to the real-time, digital-to-analog conversion for the headphones and the low-rate digital recording. Additionally, you have to play the entire song to transfer it. However, there are ways to improve the quality using hacks like iPodLinux for efficient digital file transfer.
Is Podshanking legal?
It is a gray area that may or may not be legal, depending on your country’s laws. We recommend checking your local copyright laws before using Podshanking.
Can Podshanking be done wirelessly?
As of now, the first version of Podshanking requires a cable connection between the two iPods. However, there may be wireless solutions available in the future.
What devices are compatible with Podshanking?
Podshanking works with most iPod models that have a headphone jack.
Now that you know everything about Podshanking, it’s time to give it a try and move your music files between your iPods without any hassle. Just be careful to check for any legal issues in your country and have fun.
