How to Sync iTunes with Android to Enjoy iTunes Music on Android Device?

If you use iTunes,but you don’t have a iDevice but Android device instead, or you come from iPone/iPod/iPads and have massive clean & organized music with iTunes, then you need to sync iTunes with Android although they are actually not friendly with each other. But indeed,there are some methods to help you do that.Just get the details in the following.

DoubleTwist(Free)

DoubleTwist is a two-part application; one part runs on your Android device with a media player for your convenience, the other runs on your computer and automatically locates your iTunes library and populates its own list for syncing.

  • Connect Android Device to computer via USB. Enable USB file storage. Select your Android device under the "DEVICES" in the left pane.
  • Drag and drop the playlist to your Android phone in the panel and start syncing.
  • Note:The Galaxy S3 only has USB MTP mode, which doubleTwist was not designed for as it expects USB Mass Storage (MSC) mode.For S3 and other similar Android Tablets,try to use AirSync to sync with USB MTP.
iSyncr and PlayerPro Music Player($3.99)

iSyncr is an Android application for both Windows and Mac that synchronizes your iTunes playlists to your Android Device. PlayerPro Music Player is a music player which is compatible with iSyncr.
