Getting music to your Android phone has always been pretty simple. Just connect you phone to your computer via USB and transfer your files from your music folder right onto your phone. While this option is quick and simple, it’s very primitive compared to the syncing options iTunes and Windows Media Player offer to transfer your media to a dedicated MP3 player. Fortunately, HTC has finally listened to its users and has released a new version of HTC Sync that allows owners of the HTC Sensation XL and the HTC Rhyme to sync music, contacts and pictures through iTunes and Windows Media Player.
HTC has not announced when it plans to roll out this new feature to other HTC devices, but we’re going to assume that it’s coming fairly soon. For now, HTC sync only works on Windows computers, so we suggest you get Windows 7 loaded up with Parallels if you own a Mac. There are quite a few other iTunes sync options available on the web, but they’re all a bit more complex than they need to be.
Is HTC Sync’s new iTunes and Windows Media Player compatibility a welcome feature? Or has Google Music Beta already freed you from the archaic practice of storing music on your Android device?
