Have you heard of DoubleTwist? It’s a free software that allows you to sync your iTunes stuff into your non-Apple device. Come to think of it, how many of you use iTunes to manage your mp3? And have you ever thought about putting your iTunes music into your BlackBerry? Or your Nokia phone?
I’ve been using it recently to sync music from my iTunes into my Android phone (Samsung Galaxy 5) since I don’t always bring my iPod Touch with me.
For Android phones, it’s the iTunes equivalent. You can download Android apps with it, podcasts, create playlists or import music playlists or video from iTunes then sync everything into your phone. It worked for the Samsung Galaxy 5, transferring my playlists, mp3s with album art and all into the microSD of my phone. Man, this would make the Samsung Kies and other phone-specific media management software irrelevant aside from updating firmware.
This iTunes rip-off is not just for Android phones. You can also use DoubleTwist to sync your iTunes media into your Nokia N and E series phones, BlackBerry and even on the PSP and Kindle. For a list of compatible devices, click here. But it wouldn’t hurt to try it on phones not listed there.
I also wrote a step-by-step guide on how I transferred my iTunes music into my Samsung Galaxy 5.
