How to Transfer Music Between Two iPod Touches?

author 2014-05-28 posted by Hans Ling in London

If you’ve found yourself in the unusual situation of needing to move music directly between two iPod Touches, you may already feel pretty discouraged. The standard music management and transfer software for Apple products, iTunes, doesn’t allow for direct transfer. Additionally, iPod Touch is particularly challenging to manually ‘crack’ and access music files directly. Third party software is available, but most are subscription only and can definitely lighten your wallet if you haven’t looked at the cheaper options.

We do have a solution for you, however, and the bonus is it’s completely free with full features. KiwiG PhonTunes is a pioneer music transfer tool that can help you move music between devices (directly, without needing to put them on your computer first) of all shapes and sizes. It covers iPod, iPhone, iPad, Android, and even external storage devices for music backup jobs.

So, back to the problem at hand. You have two iPod Touches, and you need to shuffle some music or playlists around. Apple does a good job ensuring that music transfer isn’t easy, in order to protect the rights of artists and musicians putting out the music—they don’t want a free-for-all of illegal music sharing. But sometimes there are perfectly reasonable situations for the need to transfer music between two iPod Touches, and in this case, it would behoove you to give KiwiG PhonTunes a try.

It’s easy. Four steps, and a few minutes. Below, I’ll take you through the process:

Step 1.Open KiwiG PhonTunes and plug both of your iPod Touches into the computer. PhonTunes will automatically recognize the devices, and two tabs will show up on the far right, one for each iPod. Click on the tab of the iPod Touch with the music you want to move.

Step 2.In the iPod Touch music directory, you can select any music you’d like to transfer. Now would be a good time to make any playlists or edit song info if you need to. Make sure you’ve chosen all the material you want to move.

Step 3.Click on the arrow-in-a-box icon in the upper right-hand corner of the iPod music directory. A window will appear, indicating how many songs you’re going to move.

Step 4.Make sure the second iPod Touch is selected as the destination. Click Start, and wait a couple minutes for the job to complete. You’re all done!
