The music download arena has changed drastically over the last few years, with old favorites like LimeWire disappearing and new pretenders like MP3 Rocket appearing on the scene. When you're used to one app and are forced to change to another, it's natural to be wary and want to know what you're getting into before you make the jump. If you're considering using MP3 Rocket, read on. We'll answer all your questions for you!
How do I use MP3 Rocket?
If you've used other similar programs, you won't have a problem. Use the Search window to look for the music you want, or the Discovery tab to browse for new music. When you see the right song, hit the Download MP3/video button in the bottom window. Once the song is downloading, you'll see details about it appear in a new window. Although these download stats aren't essential, it's worth getting to know what the numbers mean if you use MP3 Rocket on a regular basis.
Is MP3 Rocket safe?
Well, that's a difficult question! As an application, MP3 Rocket is safe, in that if you download it from a reputable source (like Softonic!), the file won't contain any viruses or malware. The problem arises in what MP3 Rocket is designed to do - download files from the internet. It could turn out that the innocent looking song you downloaded turns out to have something very nasty lurking inside it. The best way to avoid MP3 Rocket danger? Always download files from sources you know, and always make sure you have a decent anti-virus installed, up-to-date and enabled on your PC.
How do I upload MP3 Rocket songs to my iPod?
To do this, you'll need to use iTunes. You upload MP3 Rocket songs like any others - in other words, tell MP3 Rocket to save your songs to the same place. When you have a selection, open iTunes and drag and drop your songs into the program. It's worth making sure the songs' metadata is correct - having the right artist, song name and album name will keep things much cleaner on your iPod!
