gtkpod is a Graphical User Interface (GUI) for Apple's iPod. It supports the first to fifth iPod generations including the iPod mini, iPod Photo, iPod Shuffle, iPod nano, and iPod Video.

It allows you to import your existing iTunes database, add songs, podcasts, videos and cover art, and to edit ID3 tags.

The latest version has added a raft of new features including: preliminary support gapless playback for MP3 files, multi-threaded on-the fly conversion of WAV, FLAC and OGG files to formats the iPod understands, background-copying of tracks to the iPod, display of album art, and the downloading of album art.
