  • TuneSwift Simplifies iTunes to iTunes Transferring


    Christmas has come early for many "switchers" - those for whom transferring iTunes libraries between computers or among portable devices is a routine or otherwise recurring task. Given that syncing files between computers (particularly between Windows PCs and Macs) is not the most joyous of tasks, there will likely be some considerable comfort taken in the new CopyTrans application dubbed TuneSwift.

    Here's what we're dealing with in a nutshell: TuneSwift can swiftly backup an iTunes library stored on your preferred iDevice. By using "incremental backups," storage updates are made simpler in the absence of having to update the complete library. The most desirable attribute, however, may be TuneSwift's ability to transfer an iTunes library to a new computer, a different location within the same computer, or even an external hard drive without a hitch.

    Tuneswift is worth a mention not only in light of the neat service it provides, but because it will be available at no cost until March 15th (with promo code "tuneswift-acti-vate-me"). So if the holiday season brings with it a new computer, tablet, or iDevice of some variety, the prospect of transferring or backing up your iTunes library will be dramatically simplified with Tuneswift.

      If only that would change, that's the world I someday want to live in.

      For people who think that there is only iTunes you're wrong. There are plenty of alternatives out there. Take a look around. You can put sharepod or Media Monkey on a PC and have iTunes on the mac and be able to sync/back-up on both comps. Most of them only does songs and videos though. I've been able to rip the library off a ipod to a pc using an alternative.

      Will this program allow me to take the music my wife purchased via iTunes, off the iPhone and put it on a different phone that isnt an Apple product? Im not sure that my wife wants an iPhone anymore but she still wants to keep her music.

      I think what you could do is find where the files are stored (on XP it's in my music/iTunes), then find a good converter if the phone can't play m4a's.

      There is a way to trick all ur computers into thinking it's the same iTunes acct as long as you ONLY add media manually but nothing else. A 'sync' will throw everything off except if you 'sync' with the same computer (like u said) everytime.

      You should be able to 'Transfer Purchases' from the iPhone into iTunes then change the AAC conversion process into MP3 format. After that, u can drag and drop those MP3s onto ur desktop or wherever u want.

      To answer ur question, though, it doesn't sound like TuneSwift will do what ur looking for.
