More – Take Your iTunes In Your Android

  • February 10, 2012

If you use a smart phone with the Android OS, and also have a good library in your iTunes, you might want to carry your music with you in your mobile. At, you will get this app which will help you to synchronize your library with your smart phone.

In case you want to get this free app, you only need to download a client in your PC or Mac, and then launch Airbind on your Android device. The app will automatically find your music library, and start the sync process with just one click.

When your computer and Android device are connected to the same network, the software will even synchronize automatically, soy you won’t need to check all the time if there are new additions in your library which have not made it to you your device yet.

At the moment of this review, user comments on the Android Market talked about some disadvantages. For example, when you synchronize your library to carry around in your Android device, the whole library will be included. Maybe it could be more appealing if users could decide which tracks or folders they’d like to sync. This could also save from the problems that may arise when your device has little space available.

Like one user wrote, his library held 30 GB of music whereas his SD only had a 2 GB capacity. But although it needs some refining, the idea is a good one, it seems. At least, all comments came from users who decided to give it a try. This showed, if anything, that there is interest for an app like this one.

More – Sync Your Google Account

  • January 6, 2012

InsyncHQ.comInsync is a service for turning your Google account into something similar to DropBox, as it lets you sync your data across different devices, and access it from everywhere. However, there’s one big difference at play, and it’s that Insync mainly lets you sync up docs. The service is nowhere as encompassing as DropBox, it doesn’t let you store and sync up any kind of file. It’s just your Google Docs.

But leaving that aside, Insync lets you have your docs shared and edited in all the ways that you could think of. It lets you authorize just any person you want to access your files, and give them re-sharing permissions in turn. And it lets you do that from all the computers and devices that you use to access the Internet.

Besides, Insync comes with support for multiple Google accounts at the same time. The one you use for your personal affairs and the one you use for your job can become one and all the same, and the docs you keep in each be shared and edited without having to switch from one account to the other.

And in any case, Insync has got a clear edge over DropBox in the sense that it’s a much cheaper service. DropBox charges you $2.00 per GB/year, whereas Google charges your $0.25 per GB/year. That’s almost eight times cheaper.

This is the download link for Insync. Once you have the application, you can sign in with your Google account here.
