Cool How To: Sync iTunes with Android

This guide is an easier, edited version of a article I read online. The source can be found at the bottom.

For those of you coming from iPhones/iPods and have massive clean & organized music with iTunes, there is indeed a way to sync your music for free to your android phone. If you like it, support the project, the software I'm about to talk about is free.


iTunes Agent - Windows based software that reads iTunes, keeps organization and brings the files to your Android Phone.
----
iTuneMyWalkman - Mac users that are smart enough to know that there are other Mp3 players other than iPods, install this software instead of iTunes Agent.


1.) Download iTunes Agent,

2.) ---> Once Installed, the software will run in the system tray.

3.) Plug in your Android (EVO 4G in this guide.) and mount it as a hard drive. The software is going to write files to your SD Card.

4.) ---> Create a folder on your SD Card titled Music. I will explain why below.




Configuring iTunes Agent











Now, if you indeed have iTunes installed, you'll see this ballon on the bottom of your tray, letting you know that you're a pro at following directions, and you installed it successfully.




Right click iTunes Agent, and click Preferences. The next picture is what pops up.







Leave the checked ballons alone, unless you know what you're doing, and want to customize it to your taste. Be advised:

  • Name: HTC EVO 4G (or your specific mp3 player)
  • Sync Pattern: iTunes
  • Music Location: Locate your Music Folder you created on your SD Card
  • Recgonize by Folder/File: Click Create.
  • Click: New Device, and you'll have a config for HTC EVO 4G, you can make multiple configs, it will detect each unit that is connected.

" The fine print. It's going to delete your music folder that you already have on your phone/mp3 player if you specifiy the location directly to it. Link it to your empty "Music" folder, then make changes as you see fit. "

iTunes will create a new section called "My Devices" above your Playlist section.

1. Drag Your Music
2. Sync iTunes Agent
3. Watch long progress bar
4. Verify
5. ???
6. Profit.







Congrats, Achivement Unlocked.

Thank you VERY much. I didn't want to add my music and manually change the names AGAIN.

Would this work for Vibrant? Stupid question...

Yes, album art does show up. Sorry for the delay, I was away.

For the person with the create issue, a window is not supposed to pop up, it creates a section on your SD card, and iTunes for sync. Please upload a SS, so we can trouble shoot for you.

Hi and thanks for the guide. I do not have a SD card but have ~16GB of space on my Galaxy S but it will not let me select the Music folder on this internal memory. Ideas ?

Doesn't work for me. The agent claims it can't communicate with iTunes. I suspect it's because I'm running a 64 bit version.

I am 99% sure (at work so cannot check) that I am running Itunes 64 bit on 64bit Win7 and the agent detects it. I just do not have a SD card as I have a big internal memory.

Interesting. I get all kinds of errors that list SIDS. I also get .Net errors, but .Net 2.0 comes with Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. I don't know what my issue is TBH. I'd love for it to work.

Thanks for this very simplified guide. Perhaps to point out a very small note here that you should DRAG your MUSIC/PLAYLISTS to over/on top of your device name under My Devices in iTunes...
The only method that works successfully for me with my HTC Desire. I have tried Salling Media Sync; DoubleTwist; WinAmp, MediaMonkey and they all did only partial syncs and ommitted lots of music/playlists. iSyncr just didn't work for me and the config process appeared complex! This is so simple and coming from iPhone/iTunes previous use/ownership I was reluctant to ditch iTunes altogether.

Only problem is PLAYLISTS DO NOT show up on your android device - the music files sync just fine but that's about it.

Having trouble. It takes about an hour to sync and the progress bar shows everythings been synced sucessfully but after its done all my SD card has in the Music folder is tons of subfolders for each artist and album but only 2-3 songs are in there out of 1100+ in my itunes. Tried erasing contents of Music folder and resync but similar result. But in File Manager my 32gb card shows almost halfway used up so i dunno whats wrong

What if I only want to sync a few albums onto my phone? Do I just un-check everything besides those albums on iTunes and then drag the checked music files over to "my devices" in iTunes?

BTW, for mac users who just want to transfer a couple songs or whatever from itunes, you can just right click on whatever you want to transfer click "show in finder" and then drag and drop onto whatever folder in your mounted device.

Disagree. I can't stand Double Twist. I've got a media library of about 50 gb of music. Every single time I start Double Twist on my computer it scans my entire library of music and I have to wait for it to scan all of it before I can sync with my phone. I can configure it to not scan my media when I start up, but then if I add new albums, Double Twist never ever sees them until I start the scanning process and wait 30-45 mins while it scans all of my media from top to bottom. It's a real PITA.

iTunes agent didn't work for me for whatever reason so I ended up going with TuneSync. It was ridiculously slow copying 20 GB of music over the air the first time, but after that it's worked very, very well for me. I can actually configure it (if I want) so I can sync with my home computer over 3G from anywhere in the world. I may set that up this weekend. That way I don't have to carry all my music around, but I still have it available to me.

Click create and it makes a file that identifies your device for iTunes Agent. That way every time you connect your phone, iTunes Agent will already recognize the device from the file it created on your sdcard. Then click Save and it should say something about saved new device.

Edit: Just put the directory for Create in the root of your sdcard

I've read thru your thread and I must say that it seems like I'm on another planet or something.

I'm not seeing any "mount" windows on my Samsung Galaxy S, as I try to mount it to my MacBook. (don't see it mounted in the Finder either.)

I have the lite version of isyncr installed onto the Galaxy too.

Will this allow playback of music bought from the iTunes store, which as I understand is DRM protected?

Whenever I try to install this, it works, but I cannot start the program, because my computer has errors, perhaps because I'm still stuck in the Windows XP era? Is there any other free way to do this for my HTC Aria?

iTuneMyWalkman works with external SD cards as well? because I can't find the option to make it write to more than one folder in my phone.
How do I do that?

I've tried to use DoubleTwist, but it never found my iTunes library. It's a shame it was a promising app.

Now I'm using iTunes Agent, as suggested above. It works pretty well. I recommend. It manages do create a folder among the playlists which is synced with my HTC Hero.

It has and I tried that too! But HTC Sync was so buggy and unstable that I've quit and installed it.

I was having an issue with the program where when i tried to sync is would freeze, so i tries a couple others and had the same problem. Then i tried to drag and drop song directly into the card but that didnt work either, just froze my explorer.exe, anyone else have this problem? or know how to fix it? i tried reformatting the SD card in both windows (using an sd card reader) and in the phone with no luck

My album art doesn't sync. o.O

I really want that to sync. Why isn't it? HTC G2 Stock Firmwire. And I'm using the normal Music player and not the Gingerbread Music player, since that music player can't read iTunes music.

The music syncs fine, but the album art doesn't sync. I'll try syncing again though.

So, I put the songs onto the SD, now how do I play them? Doesn't my "Music Player" (Samsung Fascinate) know where to look?

Edit: Oops, you mean you have to actually click synchronize? Duh.

Double TWist also did not sync all my pod casts.

I'd like to try iTunes agent - but what App do I need for my Droid?
I did a search in the Mkt Place and there is no iTunes Agent App.

I have used iTunesAgent in the past and it worked great... Now I using mspot, but that is because I don't care about moving all my music onto my phone, just a subset that fits within the free space given by mspot. I am also not picky about the quality of the songs, so on mspot I use the medium quality setting and can fit a good bit more.

Is itunesagent better than tunesync? Tunesync only allows 20 songs in the library. How many songs does ituneagent allow?

I was confused at first until I played around some.

I'll try to explain.

Under Play Lists (in iTunes) it makes a folder called, "My Devices" and then under that it makes a Play List called ... whatever. In my case it made a Play List called, "Android" (see image below)



Now in order to sync music or podcasts etc. you MUST copy them into that Play List (in my case the one called "Android") for it is only stuff in THAT singular Play List that will sync.

A word to the wise. If you want albums to stay together, especially albums with 'Various Artsits' then I suggest the following "trick" which worked for me.

Click on the album cover in iTunes (do this before you add it to the Play List). Sorry when I say click on it I mean do a 'right click' which brings up a menu. On that menu select the option called, "Get Info"

Oh I guess now is a good time to say I'm using Windows (not Mac) and I use Grid view (Albums) which shows a thumbnail of each album.

So OK we click on "Get Info" and this brings up a dialog window. The window looks like this:



The default is that everything on this screen is set to "No" and there are no checkmarks. So basically you want to change it as I have here. By doing this you ensure that the album stays "together" and is in a single folder (once it gets to your Android). Even if you put multiple albums on this one Play List, each will be in it's own folder and therefore "together" once it gets to the Android.

But there is one last thing you need to do to make sure this all works (and and after you make the change above make sure you click that OK in the lower right hand corner).

The last thing you need to have set "just right" is the setting in iTunes Agent called, "Synchronize Pattern"

Make sure that is set to "iTunes" and not one of the other two choices.

Do all this and everything will copy to your Android in a fashion that makes sense. Otherwise it kinda splits stuff up into Artist folders and it can get real ugly. Makes it impossible to play an album back that way.

Hope this helps.
