    Hi Jacknightingal, and welcome to AF :)

    I think this question isn't specific to the handset, so you might get a better chance of an answer if we move it to the Android Applications forum, where a broader range of people will read it.

    I don't know of an app to do this, but maybe somebody will have a solution?

    Hmm... If you've bought into iTunes and Mac OS then I'd wonder why you've not gone for an iPhone? It all syncs-up and they talk to each other really well (or so I hear).

    I'd search for DLNA apps if I were you. You can use DLNA to access media over-WiFi and I'd imagine there's a reasonable number of apps and server software you can try-out. You'll probably have to go through hoops to get your media DLNAing out of iTunes, though.

    Would something like Skifta be of any use?

    OP, if you're home when you do this, there's always the option of using remote access software over Wi-Fi to remotely control your PC. Also, I believe the app called Doubletwist attempts to be an iTunes clone. If you get that working, it may function for what you want.
