I know a lot of Android adopters came over from the Blackberry world, and if you are one of them, you may recognize this app. “Music WithMe” started as Parkvu’s answer to what seemed to be the number one question on smartphone (non apple) users’ minds; “How do we sync our iTunes playlists?” This app has been available on other smartphone operating systems for a while now but has just made the jump over to the Android world. This move makes sense given Android’s incredible growth and popularity.
“Music WithMe” is an application that allows you to sync your iTunes playlists using a cellular network or Wi-Fi connection. Unlike streaming solutions, you only use your connection for the download and after that you are free to drain your battery as you see fit. “Music WithMe” also features automatic updating. Just choose which playlists you would like to automatically update and “Music WithMe” will sense any new changes to your playlist and automatically update them. You can pretty much “set it and forget it” since it runs in the background and can automatically sync and update without you ever having to open the app. For this to work you must purchase the app and download their desktop client which is (oddly) only available for Windows operating systems.
“Music WithMe” is available on the Android Market for $14.99. This price seems extremely high considering the numerous alternatives. Maybe the developers just aren’t used to working with more open systems like Android and think users have no other way to sync their music. I really hope that this price is a typo because I don’t see anyone paying that price. It’s a shame because I’m sure there are many users who would love to have the convenience this app offers. Let’s hope Parkvu realizes this quickly and does something about that outrageous price.
