IntroductionNot everyone who owns a Mac computer uses an iPhone!
Some people are more comfortable with an Android device as their primary mobile phone. Before I bought myself an iPhone, I was very happy with my Samsung/Xiaomi and Motorola Android phones. I still use my Android phone to listen to songs, audio-books, podcasts etc during my free time. In this article, I'm going to explain in detail the Easiest way to transfer music from Mac to Android.
On my Mac, I have a huge collection of my favourite music files that I listen to every time I work on it. These songs range from different genres and belong from multiple time periods of my lifetime. I like to transfer and save some of the ones that I am currently listening to on my Android phone for moments when I cannot use my MacBook. While I love listening to my latest favourite songs on my mobile phone, I had been facing a few issues in transferring these songs to the mobile device for the past few months.
Transfer issuesTo be honest, there has not been an easy way to for me to transfer music files from Mac to an Android for a long time until now. In the past, I have used the following software to shift music files to Android but have faced some problem or the other:
While in some cases with the above apps, I had to install additional software to do the job, and in other cases, the transfer process was simply too difficult and time-consuming. I desperately needed an app for my Mac that would easily transfer my selected songs onto my Android phone with a click of a few buttons.
iMusicI finally came across one such software that I personally think is not only the easiest transfer tool to shift music files from a MacBook to any Android mobile phone but also packs in a lot of other interesting features. In this article, I'm going to explain exactly how easy it is to use iMusic and how it makes my life easier everytime I need to shift some of my favourite songs.
This is how the software looks like once you've successfully installed it on your MacBook.
Installation on Mac
Installing the iMusic app on your Mac is a piece of cake. Once you download the dmg file, simply install it by dragging the installer to the Applications folder and it should be visible in the MacBook's Launchpad.
Connection with AndroidAfter installing the software, you would need to connect your MacBook to your Android device with the help of a USB cable. Upon a successful connection with the Android device, the iMusic software would automatically detect your device and its model number as shown in the screenshot below.
Transfer MusicHead onto the "Library" tab on the top of the iMusic page and add all your music files if it does not automatically detect music files from iTunes. Once you get a list of all the songs in the Library, you would just need two simple to successfully transfer them onto your Android.
Easy Step 1:
Check the song or songs you wish to transfer
Easy Step 2:
Click the Export button and select your Android device as the destination.
Voila! That's it. Two easy steps and your songs would be immediately transferred to your Android mobile phone.
Other Important FeaturesApart from its main feature of easily transferring music files from the Mac to Android, iMusic gives you a lot more interesting options to explore and make use of.
The unregistered version of this app allows you to download/record a certain number of music files to iTunes from almost all popular sites like YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion etc. However, this limitation is removed completely if you decide to buy it.
If you are a music geek and like to make sure that music tags for individual songs like title, genre, artist, year of release, among others are up to date, then you're in for a treat. The full version of this app allows you to Manage iTunes Library by fixing music tags and album art.
If you have a huge collection of songs on your Mac, I'm sure you would be facing issues of duplicates. This app allows you to scan for duplicate files and remove them from your collection.
If you have a music file in .wav or .mp4 format and wish to convert it to MP3 format for ease of use and making it compatible with other devices, this software will help you do exactly that. Besides the two audio formats mentioned above, it also lets you work with .m4a and .mov files.
Playlist to USB or CD
Easily transfer your favourite playlist to either a USB flash drive or a recordable CD to play in your car.
Backup/Restore iTunes Library
This software allows you to back up your iTunes library to an external hard drive so you can easily restore all your favourite content whenever you need to.
iMusic, in my opinion, is a must-have app for all Mac users who feel the need to easily transfer their music files from Mac to an Android or any other mobile device. Aimersoft, that makes 'iMusic' and other similar software for Mac and Windows, also offers a few other unique ways to transfer music between Mac to Android and vice-versa.
