Greetings, everyone! Today, I have some very exciting news. PodStream has been released! This is a program that lets you use some of your old iPod's features that are no longer supported in iTunes, such as contacts and calendars. PodStream makes it easy to do all of these things and more!
I love iPods. When I was in fifth grade, my father gave me an iPod 5g Video, iPod Classic 7th generation, and iPod Touch 4th generation. When I received these devices, I was amazed by just how cool they were. I used these iPods very frequently over the next few years. As a result, they quickly became some of my favorite devices of all time. However, I eventually lost interest in them, as my iPod 5g Video and Classic both eventually broke.
However, I started getting interested in iPods again when I discovered a YouTuber named DankPods. He inspired me to fix my old iPod 5g Video and to buy an iPod Nano 5th generation. As I experimented with these devices, I got the idea to create PodStream. Shortly after, I began working on it.
Creating PodStream was not easy. I had to write a lot of code, solve several problems that came up along the way, and thoroughly test every feature on my iPod Nano. This was hard work, and I often questioned if I'd ever release the program. However, I kept at it and managed to finish writing PodStream. I have to say, the final result was pretty amazing!
PodStream does not work with every iPod ever released. In fact, no iPod Touch or Shuffle is supported by PodStream. However, almost every iPod Mini, Classic, and Nano works with it. You can see the full compatibility chart here.
I am very happy with the first release of PodStream. After all, it's pretty awesome! Writing it was not easy, but it was definitely worth it.
You download PodStream from the new PodStream page. I really hope you like it!
Thanks for reading, and have a wonderful day.
