How to put music on your Android
While we wait for Amazon
Product: Android
 
Android Android, thumbnail 1
We'll freely admit it - the G1 is no iPhone when it comes to music. For one thing it lacks a proper headphone jack, although that can be rectified by spending a couple of quid on an adapter.

What's slightly harder to replicate is that little music management application we all know as iTunes. Our American friends get Amazon MP3 out of the box, but it appears we'll have to wait until next year for the honour of a fully integrated downloadable music facility.

But don't let that put you off using the Android unit as your all-in-one multimedia solution right now, because it really is a very capable music player. It's also a doddle to get up and running, as we shall now demonstrate.


Plug your G1 into your computer using the USB lead bundled with the device. Bring down the notification menu and touch the 'USB connected' icon, then select 'Mount.'

You're connected!

Now either select Open Folder from the Autoplay menu if it pops up, or go in and select it yourself - your G1 will have appeared as a Removable Disk.



Now navigate to where all your music is stored on your computer, such as the iTunes Music or My eMusic folders and decide which albums you want on your Android system.

It's now a simple case of dragging the albums you want into the Music folder of your G1. Simple, but ever-so functional.

Now you can use the dead-straight-forward G1 Music app to play your files. We'd suggest keeping it pinned to your main menu for easy access when on the move.

Alternatively, we'd recommend the TuneWiki app, which plays all of your music in a very similar (if slightly less attractive) way, but with the added benefit of an Album Art Manager, which should track down at least some of your missing covers.

It also features some neat social elements, which we've discussed elsewhere.
