First are you talking about storing the music on your Android device or on the Google servers? If you are planning on streaming music to your device from the Google Music Play servers then you can't store your music in a lossless format see this page about formats on Google Play Music, and notice this line: FLAC, ogg, and aac files are transcoded to ...

Yes, you can actually use DoubleTwist in combination with TuneSync (or TuneSync alone) to sync with iTunes although you are limited to songs that are not DRM'd by Apple. You can also do it without any app on your phone with Notpod (Windows only). The only drawbacks that I am aware with either of these are not being able to use DRM and people have reported ...

This has basically been answered in the comments above but I'll wrap it all up into an answer: No, you can't play songs that have Apple's Fairplay DRM protection on your Android phone without removing the DRM protection (which technically violates Apple's toc). As Edarerathis pointed out, Songbird doesn't actually support Fairplay DRM'd media, Quicktime ...

You won't find a good "iTunes for Android" for your desktop computer, because Android was designed from the start to eliminate that dependency on a desktop computer. An iPhone uses a protocol that only iTunes understands, so iTunes is the only way to get music and photos onto it (Originally, you had to install apps through iTunes too: there was no App Store ...

If you don't want to be shackled to iTunes for downloading/syncing the actual episodes, you can right-click the podcast in iTunes, and select Copy Podcast URL. It will copy the URL to the podcast feed to your clipboard. Use this URL on your Android device to subscribe to the podcast there.

Try isyncr. They have a wifi add on also.

There is also Missing Sync for Android to sync your iTunes playlists (and associated files) to your phone. It works pretty well.

The easiest way to do this is use Google Music, and specifically the Google Music Manager. Go to music.google.com and download the Music Manager. It will run in the background on your computer and upload everything in iTunes, including new downloads/purchases, to Google Music. Finally just download the Google Music app to your Android and you are all set. ...

Not that I am aware of, however you could try Double Twist for similar functionality.

Figured it out. Originally synced it with "My Music" folder option and no playlists showed up. Restarted with option of "iTunes" and in a few minutes my playlists showed up without having to resync all the music.

These guys recommend iSyncr as a solution. Cons: It's not free, and it won't sync copy-protected content.

I would try out Google Music. It will be the most native with your device, and gets relatively close to syncing, in theory. The first thing you will have to do is go to the Google Music Homepage and download the Music Manager tool. Once downloaded, you tell the Music Manager where your music is on your computer, and it uploads it all to the cloud! This ...

DoubleTwist lets you sync your phone's music library with your music on your computer from iTunes (and Windows Media Player as well, I believe) either by plugging it into your computer's USB port, or by syncing wirelessly over-the-air (though the wireless feature costs a little bit). You can find it at http://www.doubletwist.com/ and in the Android Market at ...

I do not think there is a way android will work on itunes natively. I would suggest look at media players that sync with the itunes program itself I have not tried this but http://www.winamp.com has this feature for a while and is free. Its also mac http://www.winamp.com/mac OS X 10.6 and above ...

Manual alternative If you are on a computer and you don't even have iTunes installed, you can find web page of that podcast on iTunes site example: http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/tiesto-s-club-life-podcast/id251507798 Then you can view source of the page and locate links to actual files - mp3 or m4a . You can download the files saving either directly ...

I've faced the same problem and I found this software: http://doubletwist.com/ Basically what it does is read you iTunes library and coping what you want to the device your want, it's just great and you can set the configs to you needs. It has an android client and a PC client. Hope you will find it useful.

The problem is that your have to use Google Music player in your android phone and the uploaded ...

There's the free and open source Tunes Viewer which is sadly not available in the Play store (Apple probably doesn't allow it): The easiest way is to install the FOSS market F-Droid which hosts such apps and install Tunes Viewer from there (search for "TunesViewer"). It's also directly available as an .apk installation file here, but I'd prefer the F-Droid ...

Tunesviewer is an application for Linux or Android that "[allows] access iTunes-University media and podcasts." (From Tunesviewer main page). You may want to check it out. There is an APK installer to run on Android devices. It's also available from F-Droid.

In recent years, Apple has sold songs on iTunes without DRM. You can convert them to other formats pretty easily, then just drop it onto your Moto X using a USB cable (Or even just email it to yourself, then download it using your email app on the phone). Music stored on the phone should automatically be added to your "On Device" library in the Play Music ...

If you want to use Google Music you will need to upload your iTunes M4P music to Google Music. However, Google Music only supports .mp3, .m4a, .wma, .flac and .ogg files. And DRM-ed M4P music is not supported. In order to upload M4P to Google Music, you need do a conversion first. Since iTunes M4P music are protected by Apple's DRM, you cannot use a common ...

I'm a huge fan of iSyncr. It syncs to iTunes, so if you're coming from an iPhone you can use the playlists you already created. What sealed the deal for me was the fact that iSyncr syncs play counts and ratings back to iTunes. Not to mention the fact that you can sync over wi-fi or sync via USB cable. EDIT: I see you're asking about syncing without iTunes, ...

Fairly new app called "Itunes Podcast Player" is able to search and play podcasts directly from Itunes. Seems to work really well, at least for me.

Google Play Music manager can synchronize with iTunes, including podcasts.

As has been established in other answers, Google's Play Music program does not support files in ALAC. However, the M4A extension is used by several supported formats so Play Music will attempt to add these files to its library. Unfortunately, when Play Music actually tries to play these files, it causes errors. One solution (mentioned above) is to ...

iSyncr works over USB (Mass Storage or MTP), Mac or PC, and also works over WiFi. It handles the Galaxy Nexus just fine. In full disclosure, I am the developer.

You can also try Double Twist.
