What triggers iPod reproduction counter to add +1? It is currently visible on iTunes and I was wondering if you have to listen untill the very end or a good portion of it, say half way through.

I don't know if that matters but my device is an iPod Classic 80 GB.


Presumably it works the same way as it does in iTunes. Therefore, you must wait for the song to change to the next one by ending for the reproduction count to be increased by one.

Clarifying Edit: The counter increases each time the song changes by it self, either to other one, if there is, or to the menu, if it was the last song of a play list. Therefore, the portion of the song you've listened to has nothing to do with the reproduction counter increase.

    Does the fact that I just tested it, work? – Thecafremo Jun 19 '12 at 15:09
  • Did you test on iTunes or iPod? – Renan Jun 19 '12 at 22:21

    Both, of course. I'll edit my answer to clarify a little bit. – Thecafremo Jun 20 '12 at 6:54
