    As a recent convert from iOS, all of my music is managed via iTunes. Ideally, I'd like to continue using iTunes on my laptop to manage my music. However, an obvious issue is how to get my music on my Android phone (which is an HTC One)?

    For the last couple of years, I've had Google Music Manager running on my laptop, but only for purposes of automatically backing up all of my music. After getting the HTC One, I immediately realized how convenient the Play Music app is since it has access to all of my music. However, there's a problem: Apparently, the Google Music Manager only adds music, and does not delete music. As a result, I have a lot of crap stored with Google. But what makes I really don't like is that various playlists have music in them that I don't want there. Sometimes it's a song that I decided I don't like and removed in iTunes, and sometimes it's the same song twice because I must have removed it in iTunes but later added it again. I don't have the patience or the time to sift through thousands of songs in dozens of playlists to fix things in Google. I thought one solution could be to delete the playlist from Google, and then upload it again from iTunes. But after deleting it, I can't seem to get it back on Google. Does anybody have any suggestions for this issue in general?

    In the alternative, I was thinking of getting an app that wireless syncs to iTunes. Does anybody have experience with this who can give some recommendations? I downloaded AirDroid, which is awesome, but it doesn't sync (in other words, I can dump music on the phone wirelessly, but don't know how to put playlists on it, nor how I would update the playlists on the HTC One as they are updated in iTunes).

    Any thoughts? Thank you!

    Although Google Music is awesome in many ways, it doesn't do well in terms of syncing with your computer, because it's really all about the cloud. So the playlists that you uploaded are probably the iTunes playlists you had at the time of the initial upload; however, those playlists aren't synced, and can't be re-uploaded easily.

    You can delete music from Google Music--you just have to do it from the Google Music website in the My Library screen.

    If you want to start from scratch, you could delete your entire Google Music library (use the website on your computer--click on the gear icon at the upper right, and select the option in the Settings screen), then reupload your entire iTunes library (including playlists), but that would take a long time, and again, it wouldn't be syncable.

    DoubleTwist might be worth a try, but I think the feature that can sync with iTunes costs some money. iSyncr is another option I've heard about.

    I use iSyncr to sync iTunes on a Windows laptop to my Android phone. It will sync over WiFi automatically. It also reverse syncs songs you download from Amazon MP3 on your phone back into iTunes. If you use Rocket Player you have a bunch of options for managing playlists and reverse syncing play counts, but I don't use them so I'm not sure how well that part works.

    Thanks for the replies. I'll give iSyncr a shot.
