When I got my first iPhone I spent a lot of time sorting out my iTunes library so when I switched to Android I found copying the music collection over via the folder system a bit of a pain. I sure that I am not the only one is this situation and this is where a new app for Android called Airbind comes in. Airbind is an app you install on your Android device and a server you install on your PC and then it syncs your iTunes collection including music, phones and videos to your Android device over wifi, no need to connect your phone to your PC with USB.

It’s really simple to install, the server is Java based and runs in the background. The simplicity is great but its also a problem, when it comes syncing the the only options you get are whether to sync music, videos or pictures. You can’t specify which albums or artists to copy, I have more music in iTunes than I have space on the phone so I could start the syncing but I know it would fill it up. Pictures and videos were ok, wifi syncing is a lot slower than via USB but that is to be expected.

The Android and PC/Mac apps are free so if you have Android and iTunes it’s worth giving a try but if you need more granular control then this may not be the app for you.
