Default Is there an iTunes for Android?

Hi

From where can I download music, legally, and then play it on my Android phone? To be clear, I'm not wanting to use a subscription service like Spotify.

I resolved this issue about 2 years ago, primarily b/c I have neither the time nor patience to play "seek and ye *may* find". I invested about $25 in a program called RadioTracker(.com). With recent updates, it really has become a hands-off process. Incidentally, this is not a sponsored post; the thing has saved me tons of $$, so I pass on the tip where I can as a completely satisfied customer. Win only, so far as I know. Essentially, the app monitors Internet radio, pulling only what you want. Here's a hands-on explanation of how it works.

Typically, I start the app just prior to going to bed. I focus on two options. One lets me pick a genre; the other lets me select individual artists. I tend to stick with the latter, since I get too many who-cares files via genre. The app includes a humoungous database. (If my artist is not in it, I can add anyway.) Inserting Artist-A causes a slew of similar artists to appear in a right-hand column. Double-clicking any one or more tosses the name(s) into my get-em list. I then go to bed.

When I get back to the associated directory, I find dozens to hundred+ of marvelously cut MP3s, just waiting for me to toss em into iTunes. I set it so my bitrate is at least 192, so it sounds pretty darn good, esp since I didn't have to "work" at pulling them.

There's a feature to dump them into iTunes, but I prefer to drag & drop what I want into the iTunes directory. I then use "iTunes Folder Watch" to easily have iTunes acknowledge their inclusion. Oh-- there is a built-in RadioTracker option to prevent duplicates, thankfully. That includes what you already have.

So how did I learn about this app? Grabbed a UK iPod-related zine from Barnes & Noble. Same thing with photography-- when I want to really learn, I skip US zines in favor of their UK counterparts. Our zines are too focused on ads; UK zines invariably offer MUCH more meat.

Keep using iTunes to buy music, and then use doubleTwist to sync that music to your Android phone.

Works like a charm :-)

Sync, Play & Send to BlackBerry, PSP, iPod, iPhone with doubleTwist

I for one agree with that guy about Radiotracker.I stumbled upon something about it on twitter and started using it, it's extremely useful and saved me lot of trouble when it comes to getting new music.

Not to sound like a stick in the mud, but the OP did ask for legal ways to get music and while this does sound like a great way to go about getting music. I, for one, would have to question the legality of such a method.

After all, you are more or less, creating an unlicensed copy of music that was streamed online. Pretty sure thats infringement. With the way the RIAA has been going after people, and for insane amounts, Im not so sure I would want to even give them a reason to look in my general direction. Now granted, its probably safer than bit torrent, but you still had to pay for it, creating a nice easy way to trace back.

That said, I'll probably at least take a look at it.

Well, I say it's legal.After all, u could just record a radio station with the windows built-in sound recorder, no one questioned its legality as far as I know.Well yeah the quality with Radiotracker is way better, I would even say it's actually pretty good.And I doubt it that the RIAA has nothing better to do than start coming after u just or this.As long as u keep those files for your own use, u should be on the safe side.Of course it's safer than the torrents, I don't even wanna start to think what kind of viruses u could pick up from round there.

For a catalog, I use Media Monkey.

Then, I generally buy my music from Amazon or Walmart, and import it. I also try to go to artists pages to buy music FROM them, and cut out all the middle men.

In the UK Sky TV are about to launch their own music service, I think it's 6.49 per month for a set number of tracks/albums. Its received some favourable reviews so far.

You guys should checkout double twist, its available for mac and PC and lets you sync itunes or other media to your android phone. I use it for my blackberry. It even downloads and formats youtube and other flash video from the web to your phone. You can format any video files on your pc or mac and it optimizes it for your phones resolution. It also lets you buy music and it will sync to your device. You can also create playlists.

I havn't used it for android as I am a blackberry user (been trolling your forums because I am planning on buying the droid) but the site says android is supported.

check it out at Sync, Play & Send to BlackBerry, PSP, iPod, iPhone with doubleTwist

Hope it help, I am curious how it works for you guys as its what I am planning on using for media syncing with my mac and android.

Thanks I willl definitely check out double twist. My problem really though is getting my G2 to sync with the laptop for my music, can anyone tell me how they have had success with this? I managed to sync it once with Windows ActiveSync but I don't use Outlook so there was no point.

I have uninstalled the HTC sync wear as it just didn't seem to pick up the G2, any advice for when I reinstall it? Do I need it to use double twist??

Also, does anyone think that not having my 8gb sd card in yet is affecting it's ability to sync? I am waiting for it in the post! When I receive it how do I make sure I get data off my current sd card and save it?

I have heard a lot of problems people are having with the G2 but need to know the successful ones, so many questions!!

I've just downloaded doubleTwist as well for use with my Droid, but it doesn't seem to recognize that there's available space on my microSC card. I've already put music on the hard way (drag and drop in Finder, I'm a Mac user), but doubleTwist doesn't even see that music on the phone either. Am I missing some settings or something?

EDIT: Whoops! Never mind. I remounted my Droid and all seems to be well. Thanks for the suggestion to use doubleTwist though!

The Best one I've found is http://www.salling.com/MediaSync/windows/
MUCH better than DoubleTwist. I hated DT because it never found all my music or playlists, and when it did sync it would only sync part of what I wanted.
Salling works for windows and mac and that's all it is, a sync. You don't have to download a big slow program.

Which method? There were several mentioned in this thread prior to your post and at least 2 were legal. I didn't really want to read the long post about the 3rd that I ran across.

Amazon mp3 is available on your Droid, you can also transfer iTunes bought music to it (by removing DRM account license and convert format to mp3 with a 3rd party application if they are protected .m4p), BTW, this method also applies to iTunes DRM'ed .m4v video and Amazon Video on Demand protected .wmv movie.

Good Day!

Just a reminder that there are some folks who can't stand iTunes and who don't use it to buy music but use third party apps instead. ;-)

I just buy digital music & movie files from iTunes and Amazon, then use a 3rd party ** LINK REMOVED BY MOD ** to strip license protection, convert format and make copy or burn to DVD, persoally I think it is an unnecessary pain to computer ti install a iTunes similar syncing program, USB cable and SD card is enough!

If Amazon MP3 is available where you live, that's probably the best alternative.

I'm going to offer up Dazzboard as a method of transferring music you already have to your phone. It's a great program for syncing all media files up to your phone.

Can't offer up any methods of downloading new music though - sorry!

I used to use the Zune Marketplace as well. It's not all DRM free though I ended up switching to Amazon's MP3 download store.

You have to weed through a bit.. but the mp3's are free.
Yep iMusic is definetely the best and easiest way to get music on my HTC Droid Eris. You just have to delete every song you download after listening to it *wink*. It also allows streaming which comes in handy.

were not looking for away to download music onto the phone,
we want to be able to sync our music collections that we already have and put it on the phone via syncing.
imusic might be a way to get a track (although it is illegal to keep it) but it is no replacement to be able to transfer our own music collections.

It is an insult to Android phones to use iTunes as a means of obtaining music. Apple needs to burn to the ground.

everyone is against itunes but mp4 files work on droid. if you've been using iTunes for your music collecting habits, keep using it as they work with droid. Now if you want to ditch iTunes, you can always try Amazon's MP3 downloads. I started using Amazon because they almost always have the cd cheaper than iTunes. I got the Sick Puppies - Tripolar album off iTunes for $10, next day i saw on amazon that it was like $7.

I'm using TuneSync. I never have to connect my Droid to my pc. It does the sync over my wifi connection.

Well I don't know about you but I don't like to pay for the music I already own. So I am using Jam11 to stream my iTunes music to my Android phone. Give it a try and check for yourself
