Problem Syncing Note to iTunesSupport

Last Updated:

    I just got my Samsung Note about two weeks ago, and it is my first android phone. My previous phone was the iPhone 3Gs, and I really loved the convenience and ease of syncing my iTunes to my phone with ease.

    Over the last couple weeks I've had a hard time finding an app/program that really works well. I've tried TuneSync and Doubletwist, but both are extremely slow and don't offer the convenience of syncing my podcasts from my iTunes account.

    I've heard good things about Salling Media Sync, but i've had no success with it. From everything that i've seen you just allow the connect your phone to the computer by opening USB mass storage and it will connect your device to the program. I try connecting my phone, but nothing happens.

    Can someone PLEASE help me out with this?

    I use isyncr. Unlike others it lets me sync album arts. Which is a must for me.

    doubletwist works really well for me and takes all of the media from iTunes.

    I second doubletwist however there is an issue with the note.

    If you have an external sd card it shows as 2 devices and will sync to the phone and sd card. The quick fix i figured out was before you sync eject the internal card and you will only see one device and it works great. Emailed support and they said it is a known error and will be fixing it in the next update

    I didn't notice that when I did a wireless sync on my Note. I'll have to look through my phone a bit now.

    I recommend DoubleTwist and Airsync...

    I'll try isyncr. Doubletwist was a terrible experience, it took upwards of 2 hours and didn't even sync 10 gigs. Tunesync was a similar experience. I'm pretty surprised that there hasn't been a app/program that does a simple and quick iTunes sync, the android market is pretty open and there are more hackers today than there have ever been, and i'm using "hacker" pretty loosely.

    I used DoubleTwist at first but sometimes it would just sit there saying updating and do not connect...but wasn't doing anything. I tried iSyncr after that and now just use that. I'm just about done filling my 64GB MicroSD :( I wish we could swap the internal memory out!!!

    I used easy phone tunes an it got all my music from itunes to my phone. but love the fact i'm able to stream my music online from my google account versus using up all that memory on my phone.

    I am a six-month Galaxy Note user. According my experience, i think the iTunes Agent app is faster than the TuneSync and Doubletwist. Here is how it works: (by the way, the iTunes Agent is a totally free application).

    1. Install and run this app on your PC.
    2. Plug your Galaxy Note to your computer via its USB cable.
    3. Move your cursor to the iTunes Agent icon located in the right-hand corner of your PC's screen, and right-click it, then click the Preferences option.
    4. Select a folder location for this app through clicking New -> Synchronize Pattern -> iTunes -> Music location on device. (by the way, if you want to sync the protected items using the iTunes Agent, you can check this tutorial to turn them to open file format).
    5. Click the "Associate with Playlist" drop-down menu. Click the playlist you wish to sync to the Android phone.
    6. Hit "Save" and the iTunes Agent will sync your selected itmes to Galaxy Note quickly.
