I have been using my android phone (Sony Xperia Play - don't judge me) with my Mac for about seven months now. I love my phone, and I love my computer. The only problem is when I try to put them together... MUSIC - Double Twist is INCREDIBLY sluggish, to the point where I have to leave my computer when it is updating playlists because it takes too long. Even when it has (eventually) finished transferring my music, there are always about 10-12 songs it hasn't managed to do, and even more frustratingly, it's different songs every time. Sony Ericsson bridge for iTunes is a great idea, however it crashes and force quits every time I open it. iTuneMyWalkman is a non starter. I see no other alternative then drag and drop - but we've moved on from that, surely...? CALENDAR - iCal with the Gmail calendar is all very well and good, but my favourite feature of iCal is that you can have more than one calendar. This is rendered obsolete by the fact that I can now only have one calendar - my Gmail one. EMAIL - WHY will Mail not sync with the email app on my phone?! I use a pop3 Hotmail account (@live.com), as well as my mandatory Gmail account (which I didn't want to create in the first place. it just makes things awkward...) I get emails on both my phone and my computer, but they do not sync with each other, meaning I receive the same email twice, as well as having to delete it twice, and only having my sent messages on one or other, as they do not sync together. PHOTOS - Again, Double Twist is a step backwards and a MASSIVE waste of time. It is SO SLOW!!! iPhoto will recognise the SD card in my phone, but will not let me go deeper than the root menu, meaning once again... I have to drag and drop. As well as this, don't get me started on contacts and address books and copies of contacts and blah blah blah blah blah... This would not bother me, but then I look and see my friend with an iPhone and his MacBook Pro, and they just gel with each other. They sync properly and smoothly, everything is the same and it's so beautiful to behold... It seems to me that Apple have made everything to do with Android just that little bit too hard and fiddly and almost-but-not-quite-compatible. Like providing a circular hole with a icosahedral (yeah, i went there...) peg. Ploy by Apple to make everyone buy iPhones...? Almost definitely. Does it work? Absolutely. I see myself now counting iPhones instead of sheep when I go to bed, dream of cheating on my android with the Siri lady and looking at my phone with guilty shame. Does anyone else feel like this? And also, can anyone help me sync my computer and phone more effectively and smoothly...? I'm sick of Double Twist, for everyone that says it's 'the iTunes for Android', I say that you are cutting off your nose to spite your face by saying that. I hate to say it, but the old cliche that 'Apple products just.... work!' is true. And now I'm stuck with my xperia play with a broken right trigger button for another year and a half.
