simple iTunes alternative on iPhone? - November 27, 2010, 07:58 PM

Is there an alternative to iTunes on the iPhone? I want to just drag and drop mp3's to my iPhone and bypass the whole iTunes sync crap. I have VLC, that seems to have the right concept but it doesn't recognize my mp3 files.

Any ideas? I have a cracked phone on os4, if that helps....

Thx!

no fancy syncing or anything like that.
like how people copy mp3s onto a thumbdrive and just play off of that.
kind of like the iphone vlc app except for mp3s.
yes, i've searched on google for the answer.
argh nevermind......

Is there a particular reason you want to do this? Seems like extra work to me. Even when dropping movie files into the VLC app, you still have to sync the phone.

i would like to just copy music onto the iphone and then delete it from my laptop's harddrive.
normally, when i sync with itunes, it will see that the files were deleted from my laptop, and then delete the files off of the iphone.

am i missing something important here? probably.....

Ah, makes more sense now. Yea, if you delete all the actual files off your laptop and re-sync, they'll all be missing from your device. I like my music library on my computer though, since that's what I use to play the majority of music while at home. Maybe you should invest in an external drive that's for your music only. That way it's separate from your laptop and you have a backup in case your phone dies.

this. I wouldn't trust all my music on my phone. Anything can happen to it. I got one of mine swiped before, and I've broken one too. I would hate to permanently lose all of my music that way.

There's a button when you connect your phone that says "manually manage music and videos" Check that. then you can put it on your phone... manually... and even when your phone syncs, it won't just pull or delete music from your itunes.

Picture that! RTFM

Imagine a world where you could plug your phone into any computer, at any time, and copy an album or two. I know this seems outlandish for those stuck in Apple's world (I'm not a blind mac hater, typing this on my MBP) it seems impossible.

For everyone else it's pretty standard. EX: you're at a buddies house and he's all like "have you heard the new xyz?". You can be al like, "no, let's copy it on my phone".
