We’re all very well acquainted with iDevices and every person who has one knows how efficient the software and the functionality can be. One such software is iTunes. The reason why we’ve compiled a list of the best iTunes alternatives is because Apple has stuffed so much into one utility that it is kind of setup for failure from the get go.
10 Best iTunes Alternatives for Windows, Mac and Linux
Having said that, this is our list of the best iTunes alternative apps for Windows, Mac and even Linux:
1. Wondershare TunesGo
Another wonderful choice amongst the best iTunes alternatives since it allows reverse copying, importing music from your iPhone/iPod to your computer instead of the traditional, another way around. With TunesGo you can directly sync your iTunes library onto your Android device.
TunesGo for Windows can be used without paying but the Mac version needs to be paid for.
Platform: MacOS, Windows | Download TunesGo
2. SynciOS – iTunes Alternative for Windows and Mac
It’s an extremely powerful software and is rich in features such as media transfer (both ways), backing up device content, syncing wallpapers, ringtones, books, photos, music, videos, and considerably anything you can imagine.
Platform: Windows and MacOS | Download SynciOS
3. PodTrans – Transfer Music to your iPhone or iPod Touch
Sporting its own music players this is much like SynciOS but what sets PodTrans apart is that it doesn’t require an iTunes installation to transfer music to and from an iPhone/iPod. It also makes use of drag-n-drop actions which enables it to be one of the most user-friendly in the lot.
Platform: Mac, Windows | Download PodTrans
4. Swinsian – Advanced Music Player for Mac
This has a very similar interface to that of the iTunes so it’ll be befitting to put this in the best iTunes alternatives list and its features have social integration which will allow you to connect to your last.fm account, metadata/ID3 tag editing and the auto-detection of AirPlay ports if any is available.
Platform: Mac | Download Swinsian
5. MediaMonkey – Free Music Manager for Windows PC
Its gold version has a price tag on it as it comes with additional features but MediaMonkey is a superior media management software that not only brings all your music and videos together but can also find missing track information automatically and fill in those gaps, including album art. Other features include but are not limited to helping you clean out duplicates, auto-building of playlists based on your listening habits and recording music from audio/video disks.
