Default iTunes and the Incredible

I'm sure this will seem like a really dumb question for those that know, but can you put iTunes on the Incredible? Just asking, because my son has told his sister she can have his iPod because his Incredible sounds better. I don't want him to give it away if that means he won't be able to listen to all the music we have bought him.

Yes, if you locate the folder where Itunes saves music files, and plug the phone into the PC (seen from the computer as a hard drive) you can drag and drop files onto your phone, and use the stock music player app.

You can also download iSyncr for PC from the market which provides a pseudo-interface with Itunes.

Thumbs up No itunes

The great thing about android is you can just drag your mp3 files into your SD Card. What folder should you put the mp3 into your SD Card? Any file! As soon as you unplug phone from your computer, your phone will automatically search your SD card for songs. Just pull up the music player and BAM it's there! Gota love Android OS. Once you have tried and get used to this drag and drop process, you'll understand that itunes is kinda useless.

I use missing sync for my mac and it works really well over WiFi. Even syncs pictures & videos to iphoto.

However, since I'm using exchange, I don't use the calendar or contact sync option, but it's there. Kinda pricy, but gets the job done for me.

I was under the impression that iTunes weren't mp3 files and they aren't compatible...am I wrong?

I use "iTunes Agent" it allows you to use the iTunes program.
When you set up iTunes Agent, iTunes will see your phone as a device and you then just drag the songs you want to it. When you are done you press sync.
Very simple process.

You are correct in saying theyre not MP3 files. They are some proprietary Apple format, I forget what its called. They are compatable with our phones though, meaning our phones can play them. But ONLY if the files do not have DRM on them. Anything you have baught on iTunes in about the past 18 months does not have DRM on it. Apple used to make it so that only Apple products could play back music baught on iTunes. They changed this around Summer of 2009. Anything you buy now is still not an MP3, but can be played back on any device that supports whatever format the music comes in.

There are apps that will play the iTunes formatted music *.m4a. Check out Rockplayer which I use all the time. It also plays a number of video formats not supported natively by the stock Android video/music players.

I haven't found any software (other than iTunes) or device (other than an iPod) that will play "protected" iTunes files (i.e. "DRM'ed" or *.m4p's) on anything other than an ipod-device or computer tied to an Apple account through which they were purchased.

Prior to iTunes 6, there was a program "hymn" that broke DRM, but I haven't seen anything which can break it since then. That doesn't mean it isn't out there --- I just haven't seen it.

I've was looking for something like this. Thanks!

I also used doubletwist, but I have settings on my songs to start at certain points (when bands add annoying intro's). I'm hoping it does the same thing for the Droid, but probably not.

It's a plugin for iTunes on your computer (not the phone). When you plug your phone into your computer, it will show up as a device in iTunes much like the iPhone, iPod, iPad, etc

Default You can create playlists on in Android

Most music player apps for Android have the capacity to create playlists, but you'd have to manually re-create them. Some software *does* recognize a playlist file format, but I've never successfully been able to transfer entire playlists from player to platform, etc.

Maybe somebody else monitoring this thread can chime in here.

Isyncr is an Android app that will transfer playlists, playcounts, and last played info between your phone and itunes. It also has a widget that will do ratings for you. People knock itunes, but I think it organizes things pretty well. Dragging and dropping won't help you keep playlists intact, especially the smart playlists. Granted they won't be live updated on your phone. I've totally migrated off my Ipod thanks to Isyncr and Poweramp.

You can burn your itunes songs to disk, using "audio disk" option. Then rip the songs back into itunes as an MP3. Do this with your old files that still have DRM and this will remove it as well. As an old HYMN user which is now defunct, that was always the long way work around to remove DRM from the files you purchased.
