Suggested March 2024 4 Free Tools To Sync Your Itunes Music To Android
If you are a iPod, iPhone, iPad or whatever iDevice user, you will have no problem syncing your device with iTunes (in fact, this is the only way you can get music onto the device). But if you own an Android phone and use iTunes to purchase, store and organize your music/video, you will find that iTunes can’t detect your phone and you won’t be able to sync your smart playlist.
Luckily, it is not difficult to get your playlist across the cable to your phone. Here are four ways that you can use to sync iTunes music to Android.1. Sailing Media Sync
Sailing Media Sync can sync your iTunes music, playlists, podcasts and photos from iPhoto or Aperture onto your Android device. It is currently available in two versions: free and premium. The free version copies all your media files every time it performs a sync. It does not keep a record of what has already been sync. Depending on the size of your media library, the whole syncing process can take a long time. On the other hand, the pro version costs $22 and it can intelligently updates your phone, resulting in a faster sync.
The usage is simple. Plug in your Android device with the USB cable and turn on USB storage mode. Sailing Media Sync will automatically detect the device and prompt you to perform a synchronization. You can select from the list whether you want to sync music, podcast and photos.
Sailing Media Sync is available for Windows and Mac.2. iTunesMyWalkman
iTunesMyWalkman is a open source application that helps you to synchronize the contents of iTunes playlists to your mobile phone or other portable device, including Android phone.
1. It works on Mac 10.4 Tiger. Most applications only work on Mac Leopard and above, so it is good to see that iTunesMyWalkman plays well with Tiger too.
2. It includes iTunes scripts and Folder Actions so it can automatically detect your Android phone and synchronize your music and playlist right within iTunes.
3. It is able to re-encode your music on the fly to save space. This is useful if you have a small storage space in your phone, or that your phone does not only support the media format in iTunes.
4. It is able to sync your camera pictures to your hard disk or iPhoto.
Note: If you have a large media library, it will be very slow the first time you perform the synchronization.
iTunesMyWalkman is available for Mac Tiger and above.3. Dazzboard
Dazzboard is different from all other apps. It is a web app that works within your browser (Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari).
Before you can use it, you have to download and install a plugin from the Dazzboard site. After the installation, you can visit the website again and it will prompt you to launch the web app.
Within the app, you can select the music/video/photo/playlist from either device (your computer and Android phone) and transfer to and fro from each device. in Windows, you can even sync your Android applications to your desktop.
Dazzboard is available for Windows and Mac.4. DoubleTwist
This article won’t be completed without DoubleTwist. DoubleTwist is a great media player that many even touted it as the “iTunes for Android”. After you have installed it in your computer (Windows or Mac), it will automatically import your iTunes music and playlist. When you connect your Android phone to your Mac, it can detect your phone and give you an option to sync your media content.
Double Twist is available for Windows and Mac.Premium software
While this article is about free tools, there are several premium apps that can sync iTunes music to your Android phone as well.
1. TuneSync – TuneSync allows you to sync your iTunes playlist wirelessly. There are two parts to TuneSync, an Android app and a desktop app. The Android app costs $4.99 (there is a lite version though) while the desktop app is free to download. TuneSync works on both Windows and Mac.
2. iSyncr – Other than the usual syncing, iSyncr also supports smart playlist, song ratings, play counts, podcast and videos. iSyncr also comes in two parts: Android app ($2.99) and a desktop app (free). iSyncr is available for Windows and Mac
3. The Missing Sync – At $40, this is one hell of an expensive app. However, it is also the best synchronization app out there. Things it can sync include calendars, Fliq notes, SMS messages, contacts, music, photos, videos, docs, podcasts and call history. It also supports wireless sync.

You're reading 4 Free Tools To Sync Your Itunes Music To Android
Syncing music between iPhone/iPad and Mac is straightforward. With macOS Catalina, Apple removed iTunes, and thus we use Finder to sync music from Mac to iPhone. The process stays easy and fast.
If you are an Apple Music subscriber and have the same Apple ID on your Mac and iPhone, then you do not have to do anything. All your songs, playlists, ratings, etc. are automatically synced to all your Apple devices. The same happens if you are an iTunes Match subscriber.
Note: The tutorial below is for iPhone users who do not use Apple Music. And if you are an Apple Music subscriber, follow the methods only after turning off the option to Sync Library in Apple Music.

Editors’ Pick: How iTunes Saved the Music Industry Viacom head Sumner Redstone speaks on content, copyright, and creativity at LAW
Sumner Redstone, the billionaire businessman who grew up in Boston’s former West End and went on to build a career at the forefront of the entertainment industry, delivered a message to a standing-room-only crowd at Boston University in September: content is still king, but in the digital age, copyright is what matters.
“Copyright furnishes the incentive to innovate,” said Redstone (Hon.’94). “If you lift the protection of copyrights, you will stifle the expression of new ideas.”
Redstone, 84, the majority owner of National Amusements and the chairman of the boards of Viacom, the CBS Corporation, and the MTVi Group, spoke at the School of Law Auditorium about the challenges of keeping a media company profitable in the digital age and answered questions from Bill Schwartz (LAW’55), a former dean of LAW, and from audience members. His longtime standing as “a part of the BU family,” as LAW Dean Maureen O’Rourke said in her introduction, was established through a course in entertainment law that he taught throughout the 1980s and through his sponsorship, with Viacom, of the annual Redstone Film Festival, which gives College of Communication film students the opportunity to show their work to an audience of industry professionals and their peers and have it judged.
Best known for his mid-1990s statement that “content is king,” Redstone spoke about the ongoing threat of content piracy and offered a “digital manifesto” for the long-term success of both artists and media companies. “We are all digital companies,” he said. “We are all operating on a new plane.”
Content-driven business decisions have consistently led to successful ventures for Redstone, who got his start in the entertainment industry after a career in law and is now one of the most powerful people in the film and television industry. According to Forbes magazine, he is one of the richest people in the world as well. He got his start at National Amusements, the Dedham, Mass.–based movie company founded in 1936 by his father, and invested in companies such as Columbia Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox, Orion Pictures, and Paramount Pictures as his corporation grew. In 1987 he acquired Viacom International, owner of MTV, Showtime, and the Movie Channel, which was at the time, he said, “a struggling cable television programming venture with a few underdeveloped, overlooked assets that everyone encouraged me to sell.”
“You know, they said that MTV was a fad,” he said. “They said that Nickelodeon could never make it, because who was interested in a kids channel? I listen to Wall Street a lot, but Wall Street told me to sell MTV; they told me to sell Nickelodeon. In your life, in the final analysis, you have to follow your own instincts.”
In 1993 he bought Paramount Communications, the parent company of Paramount Pictures. Redstone’s tenure marked the start of a highly successful decade of production, which saw the company release the Academy Award–winning films Titanic, Forrest Gump, and The Truman Show. In 2000, Viacom merged with the CBS Corporation, and although the companies split in 2005, Redstone remains chairman of both.
His law career, in addition to his current business interests in the television, film, and music industries, shaped his views on the need for collaboration between major media companies in the fight against piracy and intellectual property theft. “In the long run, we must all depend on the preservation of strong intellectual property rights in order to survive,” he said, drawing a parallel between a dairy farmer who stops raising cows when he is forced to let his milk go for free, and the record industry, which he said was “drowning in milk” four years ago.
“The sales of singles plummeted 61 percent in one year,” Redstone said. “The result — just as a dairy farmer stops collecting milk he can’t sell at a reasonable profit, the record companies stopped cultivating new artists.”
He said that iTunes has “resurrected the music industry” by creating a legal, affordable, instantly gratifying purchasing system for fans. The challenge now is for the film industry to catch up, he said, and for competing companies to work together to establish new standards and practices. His digital manifesto calls for even wider use of “watermarked” content, which distinguishes between legitimate and pirated files, and for restrictions on the sale of both software and hardware tools that can be used for copyright infringement. For media companies, he said, the most powerful weapon is his old standby: quality content.
“All the technology in the world would be worthless without stories, songs, games, films, and so on. We need to redouble our efforts to create the best, most interesting, and most novel content to hold the interest of our consumers,” Redstone said. “I used to say that content is king. I tell you, there’s another king: the consumer.”

Jamendo provides plenty of free music from independent artists. There are hundreds of thousands of sounds available in the app’s library, and all of them are offered under a Creative Commons license. This means you can not only stream the songs for free, you can download anything you want to keep permanently. You won’t find pop hits here, but there is more than enough content to create and fill a personal collection.3. Batanga Radio
Batanga Radio is an Internet radio app with a focus. It works as you would expect, allowing you to tweak radio stations by approving or disapproving of songs. The thing is, it only supplies Latin music. If this meets your taste, then you’re in luck. The app has over 10,000 artist radio stations and 200 genre stations, so there’s plenty here to inspire you to get up and move your feet. It’s all free to listen to and fully integrated with the Batanga website.4. TuneIn Radio
If chúng tôi and Batanga represent a more modern take on radio, TuneIn keeps it old-school. It provides access to radio streams available from all over the web, and it’s a good way to keep up with local radio stations without having to deal with the annoyance of picking up the actual FM radio signal. There are all kinds of stations out there, but there are no shortage of ones focused on music to choose from.5. SoundCloud
SoundCloud is an audio platform that lets artists upload their creations and make them easily accessible on the web. Likewise, it provides the means for people to dive in and check out those tunes. The type of music you can find on SoundCloud varies wildly, but there’s plenty of it to consume. It also has the benefit of being a relatively popular option on this list with over 200 million listeners.6. Youzeek Free Music Streaming
Radio stations aren’t for everyone. Some people prefer to just find the song they want and give it a listen without having to deal with the element of surprise. Youzeek can scratch that itch. It provides pop hits front and center, but it allows you to search by genre or country for more specific beats. The app is ad-supported, but it doesn’t cost anything to use.Conclusion
The apps on this list provide a diverse range of options. You have Pandora-style radio, traditional FM radio, all-you-can-eat downloadable music, and other ways to consume tunes. Of course, if you want to download and keep a digital copy of your favorite albums from the major record labels, you’re going to have to pay for them. There’s no legal way around that. But streaming? Sure, have at it. And why not try out some independent music while you’re at it?

iPhones make our lives convenient — you can stream, play games with friends, have a video chat, and attend lectures right from your screen. However, one tiny con is the small screen.
The good thing is you can easily mirror your iPhone screen to an Android TV or any other compatible smart TV. Here’s everything you need to know.
How to mirror your iPhone screen to an AirPlay-compatible smart TV
This Apple feature lets you stream or share content from your devices to your Mac, Apple TV, or any AirPlay-compatible smart TV. If you aren’t sure if your TV supports AirPlay, here’s a list of AirPlay2-compatible TVs.
Now, to start mirroring, do the following:
Ensure your iPhone, Android TV, or any AirPlay-compatible smart TV are on the same Wi-Fi network.
Open Control Center → Tap Screen Mirroring.
Select your TV from the list. If an AirPlay passcode appears on the TV, enter the passcode on your iPhone.
To stop screen mirroring from your iPhone to TV, just tap Stop Mirroring at the top of your screen or head to Control Center, tap Screen Mirroring, and tap Stop Mirroring.
How to mirror your iPhone screen to Android TV using an HDMI cable
If your TV doesn’t support AirPlay, connecting wirelessly won’t be possible. Don’t worry; your next bet is connecting your device to the TV using an HDMI cable.
The only downside is that you’re physically limited with cables, so you won’t be able to take your iPhone with you. But if getting parted from your device isn’t an issue, this option is excellent. For better results, look for a high-speed HDMI cable.
Then do the following:
Plug an adapter into your iPhone’s charging port. You’ll need this to connect your iPhone to the HDMI cable.
Connect your adapter to the HDMI cable.
Connect the HDMI cable to the Android TV.
How to cast iPhone to Android TV using third-party apps
While newer TV models have a “works with Apple AirPlay” label, other Android TVs don’t. However, Chromecast-supported apps like Netflix and Google apps let you easily cast your iPhone screen to your Android TV regardless if your TV is AirPlay compatible. Just open the supported app and tap the Cast button, usually at the top or bottom right corner.
If you still can’t mirror your iPhone screen to your Android TV, you may want to try using third-party apps. Apps like AirDroid Cast Web or AirPlayMirror can help Apple users easily mirror their Apple device’s screens on Android TVs.
Regardless of the app, you still need to follow the same process. Download the app and ensure your iPhone and TV are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Ensure they’re close to the router to have the best viewing experience.
How to stream video from your iPhone to smart TV
Aside from screencasting, you can stream videos from your iPhone to a TV. The process is similar and involves the following:
Connect your iPhone to the same Wi-Fi network as your smart TV.
Find the video you want to stream on your iPhone.
Tap AirPlay. Some apps may have an additional step. For example, if the video is in Photos, tap Share → AirPlay.
Choose your TV from the list.
To stop streaming, select AirPlay in the app and tap your iPhone from the list that will appear.
What to do if your iPhone video automatically streams to an Airplay device?
If you frequently stream on your TV with your iPhone, there’s a tendency for it to stream a video from your iPhone automatically.
If you notice the AirPlay icon on the upper-left corner when you open your video app, the AirPlay device is selected and will stream the video on your TV once you hit play.
To use AirPlay on a different device, tap the AirPlay icon, then select another device. Alternatively, tap it to stop streaming via AirPlay.
Mirroring may sound complicated, but you only need an iOS device and a compatible TV to mirror your iPhone’s screen. Connect your device to the same Wi-Fi network, and you’re ready. And if a wireless connection isn’t available, you’ll never get wrong using an HDMI cable.
