    I know there may be threads about this, but I'm just curious as to what people use to sync their music on their x with itunes. I found double twist and tunesync which apparently are both good. One is free but the other can sync wirelessly. I wanna be able to sync my droid x as easy as ipod for music. No dragging music and stuff.

    Search is your friend.

    iSyncr is great, very easy to use and it rips directly from your iTunes playlists. worth the $3.99

    I use TuneSync and it works great. I like it because I don't have to connect my phone via USB cable. It allowes you to select what playlist you want to synce. I think it's worth the money.

    Doubletwist downfall

    I've been trying to find a solution for moving my itunes to my android phone. It would be way to easy for apple to just make an app available, but I won't be holding my breath. In the meantime I've been using doubletwist. The main problem is that it doesn't seem to be a full sync. Ever since I started using itunes I have been diligent when importing music to rate it and create overlapping smart playlists to constantly cycle my library based on ratings, skip counts, and when it was last played. My problem with doubletwist is that when I play something on my android phone it doesn't count it as being played therefore when I sync it again with itunes the information is not transferred and the playlists are not updated. Does anyone know if isyncr will record that a song has been played and communicate it to itunes?

    started off using doubletwist. had no problems. then found iSyncr Lite and found it to be even easier than DoubleTwist, so I uninstalled DoubleTwist and stuck with iSyncr Lite. then just the other day someone mentioned TuneSync Lite and the fact that it syncs wirelessly through wifi makes it a no-brainer.

    amazing how every day I found a new app to do the work of the last app, easier.

    Any of these programs let you check off songs to sync while leaving others in your library? That's the problem I have. I have TONS of music in my iTunes library and I don't want to get rid of them. But Doubletwist, for example, syncs the entire library, not what you have checked obviously, it's a different program. Any way around this? Is the answer playlists? If so, how exactly? Thanks in advance.

    I downloaded isyncr, and also got the wifi add on. But I don't know how to use the wifi add on. I am using a computer to connect to my DX, and I use ethernet connection for the computer not wireless. I do have wireless though since I have a laptop as well. But idk how to connect my droid and my computer so I can sync music wirelessly.

    By far the best program is THE MISSING SYNC FOR ANDROID. It allows full sync, selection of playlist from itunes and after initial sync, it will do a smart sync which syncs newly added songs or adjusted playlist. It does cost money, but with a little search you can find ways to get it free. :)
