Itunes Alternative


Recommended Posts

  • 10 months later...

Is there an alternative for linux that allows syncing of your iPhone, iPad and iPods though? That's the real question here. :) I'd like to be able to sync up my devices and such as needed. Basically like having the same experience I would've had if I was using iTunes on my windows machine. :) This would be really good to know in the future though since I have a computer that's sort of dying running windows and I want to revive it with a linux distro. :D

My personal favourite is Rhythmbox, but Linux sort of sucks for multimedia. I believe Banshee is the new default in Ubuntu but it seems to me that it has more bugs than my backyard. LSongs was supposed to be good (Wasn't Linspire designed for multimedia?), but I'm not sure if they even update that anymore. As mentioned above, you could sign up for a web service like Rdio or Spotify (I recommend the former), and use their web player. Unlimited music, bro.


If you have an iPhone, I'm pretty sure you're SOL. It uses a proprietary syncing mechanism that only iTunes can understand. Does iTunes run well under Wine or another Windows emulator?
