If you think ITunes has become monotonous and you need a change, below is a small description of some of the best ITunes alternatives.
This is probably the best alternative for ITunes. The interface of Ecoute looks like an improved version of older versions of iTunes.
Ecoute has some amazing features with the best being its ability to detect and synchronize with your iTunes library. To add onto its list of features, is its sort function. Ecoute allows you to sort your songs according to album, artist, genre and playlist. You will also be glad to know that when a song is playing, there is a small widget that appears on the screen that allows you to access play controls. Those that love to know when a new song is playing are also in luck because Ecoute has the ability to serve it users with notifications each time a new song plays. Its interface is also resizable thus you need not worry about having several windows open at the same time.
This app comes for free.
This is another free app that gives iTunes a run for its money. Just like Ecoute, the app is totally free. The app runs best on Mac and windows operating systems. Tomahawk has the amazing ability to integrate music from all sorts of online sources. Good examples include last fm, sound cloud and spotify. Due to the huge variety of sources, the app always gives you the best quality of a song once you search through it. The app also allows you to connect to twitter and Google enabling you to view your friends’ collections.
This application has a very similar layout to that of iTunes. Thus if you are a frequent user of iTunes, this app will pose no challenge to you at all. It also has the ability to synchronize with your iTunes library. Upon synchronization, the layout of Swinsian will include sidebars to both the left and the right. The left sidebar displays playlists while on the right it allows editing of tags and metadata of particular songs.
This app has a free trial period of thirty days and a cost of 19.99 dollars thereafter.
For those that love good quality sound, then this is definitely the app to go for. Fidelia has put high quality sound as its top priority. Its interface if quite astonishing as it borrows a lot from a state of the art radio. The player displays the waveform of the current track and three channels for special effects.
The software unfortunately comes at a cost of 19.99. Those willing to try it out will be happy know that it has a fifteen day trial.
This app boasts of having a very clean design and being quite easy to use. It has a very streamlined user interface that is no bigger than a side bar. You will be surprised to know that even that small side bar can be minimized further. The app allows the user to play music from his or her iTunes library or even better yet from their radio. Lastly, vox supports FLAC and OGG formats.
So you want to manage your Android phone right?
For Mac users updating, syncing and grabbing files from your phone can be somewhat easy. You just need to goto android.com/filetransfer and grab the free Mac based software that will help you do what you need to do.
But it’s a simple software, and in our honest opinion it’s not the most flexible and feature robust option either. There are far superior software products to help you transfer files from your android device.
A simple Google search for android file transfer or file manger software will give you a host of other better options when it comes to managing your phone on both Windows and Mac operating systems. Some are free and some are paid, and some are worth your time checking out and obviously some are not. So how do you wade through the tech waters and avoid wasting you time when all you really want to do is grab some pictures and videos off of your phone and put them on your laptop?
We suggest a nifty piece of softare by a company called Wondershare. They are amazing and offer many little programs that do all sorts of great things with your iOS, Android and Symbian phones. They can act as file mangers, data recovery specialists and even phone to phone transfer moderators.
Quite amazing and a lot of positive reviews for Wondershare can be found online. If you need to read something right now, check out this blog: http://www.androidfiletransfer.net
