    I have switched from an iphone to a droid. I have a ton of music I want to convert to my new phone.

    Can anyone point me in the direction of an easy way to do this?

    Also, does anyone know if I can get the DJ Grind daily grind downloads on my droid?

    Thanks.

    Do you have the music as MP3 files? If you do then there is no convertion required, just copy them over to a folder and your Droid will pick them up.

    No Audio DRM management utility needed.

    Yet another reason to stop using iTunes.

    Try that. Also, just start using the cloud. Spotify Premium, for example.

    If you don't have an iPhone, you don't have an iPhone.

    And if you don't have an iPhone....well.....

    I am pro iphone, too. I am contemplating trading this phone back in for an iphone 4S, but right now, I have budgetary issues that are prohibiting. This was the best option for my budget.

    However, I must have music on cardio days. I get a crappy signal in the gym and no wi-fi, so using something like spotify may not be a solution.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Hmm...I have the 4S....and maybe it is just because I am not very tech-saavy, but Siri fucking sucks.

    Use Tunebite, it's incredibly simple to use and can easily convert m4a > mp3. Go torrent it if you don't feel like paying for it.

    I'm a little late to this thread, but the built-in Android music player supports non-DRM .m4a music files from itunes. Also, the Google Play app supports multiple file types.

    I'd suggest Google Music.

    I just switched from an iPhone to Android as well... not sure it was the best decision haha will see how it goes for a month or two
    anyways, like offshore says - all you need is the mp3 files - no conversion needed

    Hahaha I has the iPhone 3GS n hated it n went to android. Didn't have any probs put my music from iTunes onto my galaxy SII.

    Although I must say I'm starting to sway back toward the iPhone and am seriously thinking about switching back.

    I would say Google Music as well. Download their Desktop app (or whatever they call it), have it automatic import/upload all your music from iTunes. Google Music can then stream them. I also have some of my songs made available offline, which the Google Music App simply downloads the songs to my phone. However, I don't know if the app is Android 4.0 only or not.

    It isn't. I have HTC Desire Z, running Gingerbread 2.3.3 and Google Music works beautifully on it. There even is a Google released widget for it, which allows controlling it from the homescreen.

    I have a droid phone and an iPod Nano.
    DJ Grind's podcasts work well on both.

    How do you download them to you droid?

    Do you use itunes then convert it from you google app, or is there a way to directly load it?

    I use doubletwist. It virtually turns my droid into an ipod. I can sync all playlists and even podcasts. The basic version is free. I highly recommend this app.
