Ditched the iPhone for a Motorola Droid X mainly due to shoddy AT&T coverage where we live. I was worried about getting music on the device because the iPhone was born from the iPod, a music centric device.
The real “trick” that prompted me to write this post was how I decided what music to put on the device. It doesn’t have enough room for the entire music collection – so I used “Genius Play Lists” to decide what to synchronize.
- In iTunes, Create a playlist “Droid Synch” that I tell the easy phone software to keep in synch to the Droid
- Select a song I know I want on the droid and start playing it
- Select “Genius” icon in iTunes
- Drag this new “Genius” play list to the “Droid Synch” folder
- Goto 2
This kind of thing is probably posted by someone somewhere else, but I’d never seen it before.
So while I praise Apple for iTunes and the genius functionality that got me here – I don’t miss the iPhone a bit, especially that headphone jack that wouldn’t take 99% of the headphone plugs in the world.
