Sync your Android device to iTunes wired or wirelessly with iSyncr

Wireless sync is one of the holy grails of music management, so when we discovered a new way to achieve this feat, you can bet we gave it a whirl. iSyncr by JRT Studios is a 2-part app, one that runs on your Android device and another that runs on your Windows or Mac.  It syncs with your iTunes library over USB cable initially.  To sync over wifi you’ll need to grab the wireless add-on which currently only works with Windows.

To get started all you have to do is download and install the appropriate app on your phone, plug your phone into your PC, and mount your SD card and navigate to the iSyncr folder and install the PC client.  Once up and running, pick the playlists you want to sync and let it run.  Pretty simple setup and with the wifi feature, you can now have a hassle-free music sync and always have your favorite tracks ready to go.  See a more detailed step-by-step tuturial and grab the appropriate QR after the jump.

    What’s this syncing stuff iPeople always talk about?
    Is it for people with minimal music collections? I know I cant fit my 200GB+ mp3 archive on my phone
    …and how can install a program to sync your music be easier then just connect your phone to your computer and copy over the music you feel like listen too?

    I think most people are actually not syncing their whole library. Itunes-style syncing is IMO a much better and easier way of getting music from a big library onto a phone rather than doing it manually, especially if you use “smart” playlists in conjunction with ratings, date added, last played and play count, so you can (for example) sync everything added to the library for the last two weeks, the ´oldest´ songs that you have yet to listen to, the highest rated songs you have not listened to recently etc Everything automatically. You can of course also sync playlists you add music to manually, thus getting the best of both worlds.
