How to Sync With Android

Google's Android is a software stack for mobile devices that features an operating system and applications. Thanks to Google's partnership with doubleTwist, the Android now has official syncing software. This software lets you import individual audtio tracks as well as entire playlists onto your phone. You can easily sync your Outlook or Yahoo contacts with your Gmail account, and subsequently your Android.


1 Boot your computer and open an Internet browser.

2 Set up a free Gmail account, if you don't have one already. Sync your other email accounts with the Gmail account, importing your contacts and calendar by setting up Mail Fetcher.
To sync the accounts, click "Settings" at the top of the page with your Gmail open, then click the "Accounts and Import" tab. Click "Add POP3 email account" under the "Check mail using POP3" section. Enter the email addresses you'd like to access, then click "Next Step." Enter the correct server name and port (which you can find out from your other provider), as well as your password for each account. When you're finished, click "Add Account."

3 Sync your Gmail account with your phone by enabling IMAP in your Gmail settings. Press "Home" on your phone and open the email app. Select "Next" on the "Your Accounts" page, then enter your Gmail login information. Select "Next" again. Nickname your account or configure your email signature.

4 Export your phone's contacts by tapping the "Contacts" icon on your phone's screen and sending them to your PC as a CSV file. Return to the open window with Google, click the "Contacts" tab, and click the import buttoon. Select the CSV file you created on your phone.

5 Download the doubleTwist software. This will let you import your iTunes playlists by converting all non-DRMed files into a format that will play on your Android.
