    were you able to sync music AND playlists?  I can get my music transferred to my droid from songbird, but not the playlists.  any ideas?

    doubleTwist is a media player itself so instead of using it as a bridge between your Android phone and iTunes you can use it as an alternative to iTunes too.

    Other options are Songbird ( or Media Monkey ( but I don't know how well they sync with Android - never tested it.

    foobar2000 ( is also a very simple music player and if you are lucky you might be able to find a component (which is pretty much like a plugin) to synchronize with Android

        doubleTwist is using it's own Playlists but you are able to import existing Playlists from iTunes.

        As for Android Manager I'm not sure since I don't use iTunes on Windows.

    You can use doubleTwist ( if you only want to sync your media. Otherwise you could look into Android Manager (

    I haven't tested any of those with an Galaxy S so I don't know how well they play with the Samsung Android Firmware.
