    Ok I just got my captivate and looking to download music. Where to go? Help please

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!


  2. Amazon MP3

    Limewire. Of course, only the legal music that's listed there, none of the ones with copyright =D. As for viruses and problems, I've been using it for many years and just was smart enough not to download the songs that were like, 1 KB or had the name XXX PORN next to it.

    That's what I do. It's all managed/billed through my existing Amazon account, it's DRM-free, simple preview, special pricing/offers, etc.

    Just D/L and drop it on the device (it's scanned and added to the player library).

    Also, there's a pretty decent emusic downloader app on the market.

    Tunee.net you can download music right on your phone. You can also get the apk and sidload the app on to your captivate.

    BTW, welcome! Sorry for the next question (OT) but I'm curious...was there a single reason you switched - or several?

    I use Amazon MP3 as well (when I'm not using SoulSeek or BT). Just downloaded We Were Promised Jetpacks and This Will Destroy You the other day. ;)
  14. You can still use iTunes, just find where it downloads.

    And you can use doubleTwist to sync music library between iTunes and the phone (I have not tried it myself though)

    doubleTwist does work pretty well, but for some reason it didn't transfer my album art, but other than that, it's very simple to use.

    I also made the switch from a 3gs, but I also jb'd and unlocked it and sold it for $100 more than I paid for it a year ago.
    Android phones always intrigued me, but ATT never had any good ones, backflip I heard was complete garbage, so when I saw the captivate,... I sold my 3GS within a day..... lovin Android

    i'd use torrents if you are using your pc and then use double twist to copy over. If you are on the go and need it downloaded straight to the phone get www.tunee.net. It will need to be sideloaded to use it though. So use the android central side load wonder machine: http://www.androidcentral.com/sideload-android-apps-all-you-want-sideload-wonder-machine

    haven't used the "wonder machine" yet but the youtube video looks simple enough. I was able to get tunee through appbrain.com a few weeks ago. but now the app is completely gone from there.

    Tunee is awesome. Basically like limewire but for your phone. You can preview the whole song if you want to. After downloads they show up in my music player automatically. Really simple and great app.

    I was working a bit with doubletwist last night, it was nice but it buggered up my song name, album, artist, etc so everything was set up rather bizzare on my phone. Annoying, but I'm sure its something with how my song details are set up in itunes.

    I switched from iPhone as well. Amazon is cheaper then apple, no DRM, and easy to do.

    Media Monkey syncs well (DoubleTwist caused me nothing but pain), but most Android phones have problems with ID3 tags in M4A (AAC encoded songs). I have found I have to use the ID3Tag app to remove all tags and put them back - the M4a files transfer artist and album art.

    I switched from the I4 for a Cappy and the best music app I downloaded and may help you was iSyncr, simple designed user interface lets me sync podcasts, music, playlists, video, all with album art, etc... hope this helps

    The main reason i switched is I love the bigger screen and the Iphone was having alot of probs with dropping calls. Droid seems to be the new up n comming thing and will soon out do apple. I now have alot more options now that that I rooted my Captivate and so far i have not looked back.
