iTunes is not always the best option to manage your iPod's content –or at least not for everyone. Luckily there are some alternatives like Winamp iPod Plugin, which is probably one of the most original iPod managers we've found so far.
This tool is, as its name clearly states, a plugin for the Winamp player. So far so good. What it does is integrate your iPod's content into the Winamp Library, so that you can easily manage it from Winamp.
You can browse through artists and songs, rate them, delete them from the iPod and, of course, synchronize content between the iPod and the PC.
Winamp iPod Plugin worked very well during our tests; in fact, the only flaw I can think of is an error message I got when trying to unplug the iPod, but that was probably due to another application using it.
