iTunes is a great music organizer, but it keeps you tied to it as there's no way to export the playlists created in iTunes to other applications or formats. Well, that was until today, because now iTunes Export enables you to export iTunes playlists to M3U, the standard playlist format, and therefore use them almost on any audio player.
This small tool, which requires no installation, is extremely easy to use. Simply run it and follow the instructions along the three steps of the whole process. It's so simple and efficient that we really missed the possibility to also export single songs. Plus, it would have been nice to be able to review the content of playlists before exporting them.

iTunes Export exports playlists defined in your iTunes Music Library to standard M3U playlist files. iTunes Export is open source and freely available for use. The program provides a wizard based interface to exporting your iTunes playlists to M3U files.
To use iTunes Export UI, simply launch iTunesExportUI.exe and follow the instructions. No installation required.
Using it on Mac Lion and Leopard. Copies the actual music files from selected playlists to the desired location. I use this to copy my favorite playlists to my microSD card for my phone.
