I remember when iPod Touches first hit the market, the sleek sexy little things, offering all the favorite functions of iPods with apps, internet access, and browser capabilities to top it off. But, after the iPhone came along, many people discarded their iPod Touch or relegated them to a neglected shelf in their homes. I know someone who did just that, and was later glad that she hadn’t tossed it out.
A friend of mine recently had left her demanding job at a Wall Street company, and decided to move out of her apartment and head to the countryside. As she moved out, she found her old iPod Touch, and—loving the idea of getting some time away from the constant contact of the iPhone—was excited to give it another whirl.
Listening to music on your iPhone is effective, but some people are interested in having a music player that they can use when they also want to be alone. There’s a large comfort in leaving your phone at home and enjoying time to yourself with your tunes.
Unfortunately, if you want to move music from your iPhone to an iPod Touch, it’s not generally the easiest of tasks. You have to work through iTunes on the computer to shuffle music around. There’s currently no way with the default software to directly move music between two devices.
Some solutions are available, though, through third party software. When my friend came to me, I was able to share with her the application that hundreds of people are enjoying globally, KiwiG PhonTunes. It’s free, safe, and really easy to use, and of course breaks down the barriers that normally keep users from being able to move their music freely between different devices. Below are the steps to get music off of your iPhone and into your iPod Touch, without ever opening iTunes.
