William from Virginia

Apple iTunes

William uses an iPhone 3GS and an iPod and wants to upgrade to an Android phone. Leo says that if he wants to move from an iPod to an iPhone, that's really easy via iTunes. For music he bought awhile ago through iTunes, however, he can't move that to Android. He'll have to strip all the DRM out by paying $25 for iTunes Match. Then he can download all the music back from Match with DRM free versions, and with better quality sound. There are some apps that will enable him to move his music from the iPhone to Android. Leo recommends DoubleTwist.

Leo also recommends podcast players like DownCast and Pocket Casts. Those will download his podcasts automatically for him on the phone.
