Hey guys, Mike here and In this short video I’m going to show you how to sync your iTunes content with the Samsung Galaxy S4, or in other words I’ll tell you how to easily transfer music, contacts and a couple of others from your iTunes account to the Samsung Galaxy S4.
This can be very useful if you’re moving from an iPhone to a Galaxy S4 and have all your contacts, music, calendar tasks and so on backed-up on iTunes. The solution is pretty simple, but you might encounter errors down the line. If that happens, do not hesitate to leave your questions below, hopefully I can help you out.
First, you’re going to have to install an app called Easy Phone Sync on your Samsung. You can find it in the Google Play store and it’s a free app co-developed by Samsung to help iPhone users transition to their new devices.
Update: If you have a Galaxy S5 or any other Samsung Galaxy smartphone launched in the last two years, this post gives you two simpler methods of syncing them with iTunes or iCloud.
Next, you’re going to have to install the same software on your computer, either Mac or PC. For that, you need to open your browser and go to easyphonesync.com , click Download and just select the correct software version for your computer. I’m using a PC so I will install the Windows version, but the Mac one works pretty much the same.
Once you’ve installed the app on both your devices, you’ll have to plug the USB cable to connect the Samsung to the computer.
Open the Easy Phone Sync application first on your phone and run through the fast wizard, until you get a Finish button. Tap it as well. Now, run the program on your computer and you’ll be taken through the start-up process.
The software will see your Galaxy plugged-in and will detect the internal storage or the micro SD card. You have to select your phone, click next and then you can configure what do you want to sync from your iTunes to the Samsung. You can sync your music, podcasts, calendar events, Contacts, Messages and so on. Once you’ve configured all these options, just make sure that Sync Now is ticked and click Finish.
The application will just start syncing your content and once it’s done, you can disconnect your phone and that’s it. Your music, contacts, etc should be now available on your Galaxy S4.
The app tends to work fine most of the time, but in case the entire process doesn’t run as smooth as I’ve showed you in this video, restart your PC and your phone and try again.
