Sync iTunes to Android in Mac OS X with WinAmp
WinAmp, the longstanding Windows music player, has come to the Mac OS X platform and brings a few great features for Android users, most notably iTunes music syncing and library sharing, and Wi-Fi syncing. This means you can take any existing iTunes playlist and sync it directly to an Android device without having to jump through any other hoops.
The app is technically in beta but works well enough to use, with a very light memory and CPU footprint and an attractive enough user interface. If you’re an Android user that owns a Mac (or PC I suppose), this may be the best way to get your iTunes music library onto your Android phone.
Other than serving as an easy way to sync iTunes to Android, it also makes for a decent desktop music player if you’re averse to iTunes for whatever reason.
Not sure how many Mac users go for an Android over an iPhone, but it’s good to know these options are out there.
A quick word of caution: if you’re launching WinAmp for the first time you might want to turn your speakers volume down. The app belches out a forced and incredibly loud sound sequence followed by some short dialog about WinAmp and a llama or sheep (seriously, this may be the most obnoxious first application launch in history).
