    I'm having A LOT of trouble finding an application that will let me sync my music to my new Evo 4G (I just got it 2 days ago and I'm in love with it). I would like to drop iTunes all together and just move to something else but if I can't that will be okay. So and Android guys wanna help me out? I have about 2,000 out of 14,000 I wanna move to my beautiful new baby :p

    P.S. I've been using the iPhone for 3 years now and I've finally been released from their death grip. I have NO regrets what so ever about switching to Android ESPECIALLY with the Evo & Sprint (4G Coverage in D.C.).

    I switched from the iPhone to the Evo, and not being able to easily sync up the phone is a drag. However, it's pretty cool here, since you don't need to sync your music anymore. Drag & drop. It works better if you're like me and have albums that you're moving from your computer to your phone. I'd hate to do that if I had a bunch of individual songs.

    If you have mostly albums, it's pretty simple:
    1. Connect your phone to your computer.
    2. Make sure your phone's in "Disk Drive" mode.
    3. Open up your music folders on both your phone and in Finder.
    4. Drag the album folder from your computer to your phone's music folder.
    5. Unmount the phone when you're done.

    Easy peasy. No daily syncing, just moving files.

    Edit: Also, iSyncr seems to work really well. You can sync all your iTunes songs to the device, or only those you have checked. I actually just found out it won't sync songs that are unchecked, so I'm probably going to retry this one myself, after I get my 32GB card.

    Well first of all I'm not paying for anything that I should be able to do. I paid $300 for a phone then I gotta pay another $25 for a program to use my phone? Bullshit. I need a FREE alternative to iTunes for Mac and don't tell me about anything else.

    Ps DoubleTwist ****ing sucks.

    I use Doubletwist, it works great it will sync your iTunes playlist and music to it and then you can select to move all music to your phone or just selected playlist.

    Hope it helped,

    Spanning sync didn't cost me a dime... the free version is a little slower because it completely reloads the songs, but I don't keep a whole lot of music on my phone.. thats what ipods are for... But if you really like your Evo and Sprint, $25 isn't a whole lot to pay in the scheme of things.

    IsyncR

    It imports selected playlists from iTunes with artwork, its the best option i've found.

    Good for Mac and PC. Regular updates and a talkative dev.
