Browsing Content - Additional Detail

TouchCopy allows you to browse the contents of your iPod, iPhone or iPad with ease.

You can navigate your way around your iPod content in a similar way you would with iTunes. Select the type of content you want to view from the source list. i.e. Music, Video, Audiobooks etc. The browse lists and song list content will change to show you only the type of items you have selected. You can narrow down the items in the song list further by making selections in the Genre, Artist and Album lists.

Once you have the selection of items you need in the song list you can play, copy or transfer those items using TouchCopy.

Searching for Music and Video

Press the search button in the TouchCopy control bar and a search box opens. Type in your search string to start your search.

TouchCopy looks for matches in the Song, Album and Artist names. You can restrict the search to Song Names only by checking the "Search Song Names only" box in the search window.

By default TouchCopy searches in the playlist or source you have selected. You can tell TouchCopy to search all the content it has on the device (music and video in all playlists and sources) by clicking the "Search Everywhere" check box.

Comparing iPod and iTunes Content

TouchCopy performs real time comparisons between your iPod and iTunes contents. If a track is currently in your iTunes library, TouchCopy will display a musical note next to that track in TouchCopy. i.e. an itunes icon.

For a full report of tracks on your iPod that are not in iTunes, use the "Not in iTunes" report.

Browsing anything other than music and video content
