How to Sync iTunes Music to Android Smartphone?

  For the distinguished features, you may already buy an Android and iPhone.For Android,you can download apps from devise resource and a lot widgets to install;for iPhone,you get the only place-iTunes store to download apps.Obviously this is just one of their features.Now let's connect Android with iTunes, can you transfer music file on iTunes to Android?

The Answer is yes.For music your purchased on iTunes, a lot of them are DRM(copyright protected).It means even if you export these DRMed music files,they can't be played. So before we learn how to transfer,we have to learn to tell what kind of music file is.

Choose a song in your iTunes library.Take Adele's "Chasing Pavements for example,"Right-click the track and choose Get Info.This song was purchased after Apple removed DRM, and as you can see it is not locked:

The description "Purchased AAC audio file" tells you the song was purchased from iTunes, but is not DRMed. It means this audio file (with the extension .M4A) can be transferred to your Android smartphone or any other device that supports AAC playback.Even if it doesn't support, you can search a free video converter to decode.

What does it mean if you see this kind of description?
"Protected" means the music file (with the extension .M4P) is DRMed -- and cannot be transferred to any non-Apple device or software for playback. But the DRM can be removed through the burn-to-CD-then-import workaround.I think it's a pain for the complicated steps.
As for remove DRM, you can try the free app called Requiem, which is designed specifically to remove DRM protection from iTunes files.
The methods below is how to play iTunes music on your Android device,but remember that none of the following methods will not work for those DRM protected files.

1 Copy directly
