I've recently convinced a colleague at work to switch from his iPhone to the Android platform. His one caveat was that you could get hold of the same Applications, or at least Applications that would provide the same functionality.
Almost all the Applications he used we available on both platforms, the most process to replicate is synchronising your phone with iTunes. Obviously the iPhone does this out of the box, but how can you do this on the Android platform?
The answer is DoubleTwist a free Application that can manage synchronising removable disks with iTunes and Windows Media player.
Start off by downloading the two parts of the Application:
1. Desktop Application (Windows and Mac) http://www.doubletwist.com/dt/Home/Index.dt .
2. Android Application:
Install both applications and fire up the Desktop version of DoubleTwist. This will scan your computer for iTunes and Windows Media Player libraries and playlists and import them into its own library. Once you plug your Android phone in it will auto switch to usb mode and allow you to drag and drop files.
I found it more effective to create a playlist in iTunes and synchronise that through the DoubleTwist application, in this way you can sync up all your files to your Android device.
It works for music, video and pictures, and is pretty quick to move files around. It can take some time to build the library the first time around though.
