iTunes isn’t an amazing program on Windows. There was a time when Apple device users had to plug their devices into their PCs or Macs and use iTunes for device activation, updates, and syncing, but iTunes is no longer necessary.
I wonder why there wasn't any droidTunes…
But seriously, I'd like something like that. I don't mind iTunes, and I won't mind droidTunes.
MediaMonkey baby! I use Google Music on my iPad for cloud music and cannot be bothered with all the $$$ solutions Apple offers.
Another MediaMonkey user. I don't know what the options are for Mac, but on a PC you absolutely don't have to use Itunes to sync music.
what about the contacts app that comes with ipad. I didnt see that mentioned for backup
and personal data and settings in other apps (like a location or username) are those data automatically transferred from one ipad to a new one??
I don't even get my music from ITunes, so I don't it use other than for syncing my music to my IPod. I'll probably be switching to Media Monkey in the near future.
