iTunes Android sync

Apples iTunes really can do a excellent work of syncing your song, video clip, and picture collections with a smart phone offered that smart phone is an Apple iPhone. However , when you own an Android mobile phone and want to use iTunes to organize your video and music on your laptop or computer? The good news is that it's still quite simple to sync your iTunes music and video with your Android phone.

Tools of iTunes Android sync

What you will need are:

1. doubleTwist, a desktop software which is available for both Mac or Windows computer for free
2. Auto Mount, a cost-free Android app provided by JRTStudio that you could get from the Google Android Market

As soon as you installed doubleTwist, use the program to find your iTunes library. It's simple to sync your media files (songs, videos, photos) with all kinds of recognized products, such as Android, Blackberry, Palm Pre, and Windows Mobile Phones as well as many portable game consoles, portable players, as well as the Amazon Kindle.

However, the music and video files that you bought from iTunes Store are DRM (digital rights management) protected. It means you can not play it on non Apple products. It's kind of unfair that Apple limit users on how to use their own media files. So we have to remove DRM to play music and video on Android phones.
