Apple’s mobile Music world is all about a single platform iTunes.When you buy an iPhone ,you buy into iTunes.You may love it or hate it-If you have an iPhone ,you have no other options.On the Other side Android takes the opposite approach,that is managing your media is up to you.But Let’s be honest there is no equivalent Standard like iTunes for Android.
Although It can be overwhelming ,a world without standard is not a bad thing.You can manage or create your own standard for your Android device.Follow this guide to How to manage your media on Android device.
Way#1: Drag and Drop Approach:
For this method you don’t need any installation.Plug your Android handset into your PC’s USB port and activate ‘USB storage mode’,when it prompts you.The phone will show up as a removable drive on your Pc, and you can drag and drop images, music, podcasts, and video files to your heart’s content. Music and video files typically live in the ‘music’ folder of your phone’s SD card. You can either dump everything in there or create subfolders. You may need to convert certain files to 3GP or MP4 for your phone to play them; to do so use any Video converter .
Want to build playlists?
Open the Android Music app. Long press on a song, and select Add to playlist.
Way#2:Synchronized With Windows:
If you want to stay sync with Windows use Windows media player.Like said earlier,Plug your Android handset into PC’s USB port and enable ‘USB storage mode’.Next You need to click the “Sync” tab in then upper right corner of Media Player.Next you can see your handset listed.Click the white box below the Sync tab and select Setup sync . Type a name for your phone, and click Finish. Now, whenever you plug in the phone, Media Player will update it with any new music it finds on your Pc.
If you want a full-featured interface Install DoubleTwist on your Pc. T e free utility gives you a familiar looking way to view all the photos, videos, and music on your computer, and then copy or sync them to your phone. It can import all of your playlists from iTunes, convert video to Android friendly formats, and even download and save YouTube videos for your device. The program is integrated with Amazon MP3, and it has a podcast search and sync tool.
The Android Market has no shortage of podcast apps. I’ve found Doggcatcher ($7) to be the most polished and user friendly one; its interface makes finding, subscribing, and listening to podcasts a snap. Other apps include BeyondPod Podcast Manager ($7, also available in a limited “lite” edition),Google listen (free), and Stitcher Podcast radio (free).
An app called iSyncr can keep your Android phone synced to iTunes. Remember, however, that Android can’t play anything with Apple DRM (which currently includes all videos and some music purchased from iTunes).Search for iSyncr in the Android Market; you’ll T and both Pc and Mac versions. The full versions cost $3. The free “lite” versions sync only one playlist at a time and limit you to 20 items per playlist. Getting started is easy; follow the onscreen tutorial and begin the sync process with iTunes.
