    Default How to transfer music from Mac to Galaxy S4

    Just bought my first iMac and am not sure how to move over music from my ITunes account to the phone.

    Do I need to download software to do it? And when I do transfer the music will it be automatically stored on my SD card?

    Thanks.

    iSyncr is what you need. I use it everyday. Music will go to internal or SD depending on how you set it up.

    I haven't done an exhaustive search, but iSyncr seems to integrate the best with iTunes. The down side is that it costs money and if you want the full integration you'll need their player, too (but that isn't required unless you want to sync more stuff back from your phone to iTunes). If you like iTunes it's really nice to not have to import all of you iTunes data into another program (like DoubleTwist), and you can automatically sync Amazon MP3's back into iTunes from your phone. It also has Tasker integration if you want to automate the WiFi syncing.

    I just use Google's "Music Manager" with their Google Music service (Google's equivalent to iTunes Music Match) and leave everything in the cloud. It'll sync with you iTunes library (i.e. anytime you add something to iTunes it will push it up to the cloud) and best of all it's free. This way I don't have to take up space on my phone.

    For some reason isyncr wouldn't open for me on my macbook pro, so I used easy phone tunes plus. I think it was like 1.99. The free version let's you sync only one play list at a time, the paid one you can sync however many you want, and it worked perfectly for me.

    Doubletwist and airsync works great from macbook to S4. Emulates Itunes or you can specify a folder to load music from. Wirelessly moves them to the S3 over your home network.

    Get this free application for your Mac from android central;
    Android 101: The Android File Transfer app for Mac | Android Central
    Then you can just drag and drop whatever files you want to. On the Mac you will find your music files in the music folder in a sub folder in iTunes, use finder to browse to it.

    Samsung's Kies software on Mac works fine as well if you want to just drag some songs to your phone.

    It depends on your music format. If its format is .mp3, you can copy-n-paste to your Galaxy S4. If its format is other formats which Galaxy S4 can't play, you can convert its format with aneesoft video converter and copy-n-paste to your Galaxy S4.

    You can't do this without a software. The best software which I found was android file transfer. Its made by Google and seemed the best option to me

    I can't get air sync to download on my mac. I'm using Maverick OS so maybe that's the problem? Double twist downloaded fine. What am I doing wrong?

    I cannot seem to get this to work and I'm exhausted with this topic. I have bought 3 different apps trying to get iTunes to sync with my galaxy s4 and have failed every time. It's costing me lots of time and wasted some money just to find out the app does not work with the Maverick os x for mac. What do I do? Do I try to remove Mavericks os x or what else?? I'm at a total loss and right now I'm feeling so stupid. I would really appreciate help. I just want someone to tell me exactly what to do. Frustrated.
