There is a new app that turns an Android device into AirPlay receiver called Android HIFI, so with the app you can send music to your phone or tablet from iTunes. I have used Airplay for sending music around the home and this is adds another range of devices that can be supported. If you then connected your phone to some speakers you have a nice networked music system, may be a good way to reuse an old phone. I gave it a test and it seems to work pretty well.

Best thing of all the app is free from Google Play, here are the details from Google Play:


Android HIFI is an AirPlay server for audio playback. You can stream music to your Android device with it, from AirPlay clients, such as iTunes, iOS, etc.

* Please send an _EMAIL_ to me (android.hifi(at) if there are any problems, so that I can reach you for the debug logs and fix the bug more quickly, thanks.

– stream audio from AirPlay clients (itunes, iOS, …)
– be able to adjust the delay, so that it is possible to play in sync with other AirPlay receivers, or sync with the video when watching movie
– auto mute when there is an incoming call
– auto turn down the volume if your headset unplugged, or your Bluetooth device disconnected, to avoid noisy surprise
– run in the background as a service
