Looking for an iTunes music downloader for Android? We have a couple of recommendations that might interest you! Continue reading if you want to learn more! We’re going to kick things off with a quick tutorial on how you can use our most recommended iTunes music downloader — the iMusic data transfer software. Then, we’ll follow up with a thorough breakdown of other popular data transfer programs for 2019!
If you’ve ever wondered if you can download iTunes music to an Android device, then the answer to your problems is the iMusic program. Unfortunately, with regular iTunes, it is impossible to transfer anything to an Android device — what with the heavily imposed limitations. However, with iMusic, you get a very versatile program, that will allow you to download music and transfer them between your Android and iTunes library without any struggle whatsoever! We’ll cover why it is the best solution in the breakdown below, but first- here’s a list of some of iMusic’s key features.
As mentioned, iTunes and Android devices are incompatible. That is why, in order for you to be able to use third-party programs like iMusic, you’ll have to go through a quick preliminary set-up process! We’ll break it down for you below, but instructions are also available on the DEVICE page of the iMusic window.
The preliminary set-up occurs primarily on your Android device. This is a one-and-done deal. After doing it once, you won’t have to do it again in the future, but make sure you follow the instructions correctly!
To start, select the “Settings” on your mobile device. Then, scroll down to select the About Phone option. That will move you to the “About Phone” page.
On there, click "Software Information".
Once you’re on the Software Information page, you’ll need to press "Build Number" exactly seven times! If done correctly, you’ll receive a message that states that “Developer Mode” has been enabled.
If you’ve done the previous two steps correctly, then you should now be able to see a new option on your “Settings” page. Select Developer Options under “Settings” to be moved to the Developer Options page.
On there, locate and enable USB debugging.
That’s it for the preliminary set-up! You won’t have to do any of that again after the first time! Instead, the DEVICE page on iMusic should now look like this (refer to the image below.)
iMusic is a great solution for downloading iTunes music onto your device because it offers an option called the Transfer iTunes to Music Device option. With this, iMusic will automatically download songs from your iTunes library and then copy it to your device!
Of course, you get to decide the files that you want to transfer — be it your Entire Music library, just your Music, or certain playlists on your iTunes library.
After clicking the Transfer button, you should soon have iTunes music downloaded to your phone!
As promised, we’re going to be conducting a thorough breakdown of other iTunes Music ‘downloaders’ for Android mobile devices and Android tablets! This break down will include the name of the device, where you can find it, a description of how the software works, some pros and cons of using said program, and a quick preview of the interface design. There will be 9 programs in total, to complete our list of Top 10 FREE iTunes Music Downloader for Android!
Price: $39.95 per year (up to $79.95 per year for business license)
First on our list, is the dr.fone transfer. This is available in both an Android and iOS version, so be careful about accidentally downloading the wrong one! It’s a premium product, with yearly subscription prices costing upwards to around $39.95 per year or more. Because of this, it’s not really something we would recommend to anyone who will not be using it on a regular basis.
However, if you do happen to have plenty of uses for a program such as this, you’ll be able to benefit from the variety of premium options and tools that it offers.
Price: (Subscription-based) 49.95 per year
iSkysoft (also called Android Data Transfer or Android Recover) is one of the older data transfer software available right now. Of course, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. In fact, it offers a bunch of additional features that most music data transfer programs do not provide.
However, perhaps because of that, it is also one of the most expensive. With an average cost of $49.95 per year for the subscription price.
For our third program, we have Syncios. It isn’t as flashy as the first two programs that we introduced, but it is substantially cheaper — if that is something that you’re concerned with. Unfortunately, because it is offered at such a cheap price, you’ll have to watch out for slow updates and incompatibility. At the moment, there are certain generations of iOS and Android devices that Syncios is not compatible with. So, if you want to use it for yourself, you’re going to have to be careful and make sure that your compatibility matches up.
Price: (Subscription-based) $49.95 per year
With TunesGo we have another strictly subscription-based system — very similar to iTransfer and a handful of other programs on this list. It does seem compatible with most recent generations; however, you’ll notice that the website itself is needing a bit of up-keeping. It could have certainly earned a higher spot on this list if that were not the case. As it stands however, it is still a fully functioning iTunes music downloader — and that’s what is important.
Price: Starts from $79.95
5th on this list is the iSkysoft Toolbox. It’s closest to a program like dr.fone, as it offers a bunch of premium features that you probably won’t be able to find in most data transfer programs. The biggest caveat here, however, is the cost. Owning this program will require an up-front payment of $79.95, which is really more than what most people are willing to part with (hence the lower rating.)
Our sixth program is a bit of a special case. If you are a long-term Windows OS user and have been using the manual method of transferring programs from your PC to your device, then you’ll probably be very familiar with the Android File Transfer. It acts as a method of accessing an Android’s data storage when using a Mac OS PC. It is impossible to do so without either Android File Transfer (or a secondary program called Smart Switch.) Still, the transfer of data with Android Transfer is a bit tedious — everything is manual, and that is why it’s not higher up on this list.
We mentioned this program just now (under Android File Transfer) because it is meant to act as a sort of gateway for Android mobile users to be able to transfer their iTunes music to their device on a Mac OS computer. Much like Android File Transfer, however, the Smart Switch program is highly limited. It will not be able to directly download iTunes songs for you. Instead, you’ll have to use the manual method of transferring music from one device to another.
Our 8th program is the MobileTrans software from Wondershare. It is one of their older programs, and as such, is not as sleek or efficient. Nevertheless, it can be used to download iTunes music in a sense. However, much like the last two programs we introduced, the process of using the MobileTrans software is not going to be direct. You’re going to have to take advantage of the features that it offers and work around its limitations — which is why it’s not really something we’d recommend for this purpose.
The last program on our list is called Double Twist. The reason that it is so low on our list is not because of its capabilities. In fact, one could say that it is a lot better at the direct method than the three programs we listed before it. However, even if it has the capacity to directly download iTunes Music to your Android device, it is very buggy. For one, it doesn’t properly read the items that you have available on your iTunes library — which makes it difficult to know whether it is actually working.

Conclusion: That concludes our thorough introduction of the Top 10 FREE iTunes Music download for Android in 2019. As you can see, there are plenty available that you can choose from. However, some are a little bit more convenient than others. If you are looking for a transfer software that will work best for you, then we recommend that you heed this list of ours -- with the best and undisputable top-program being the iMusic data transfer software!
