How to Transfer Music from iTunes to Android
I came over from the iPhone world and all my purchased music is in iTunes. Is there any way I can export that and get it on my Droid 4 without having to root?
iTunes is a useful application for downloading and purchasing music, and syncing to your iOS device. Unlike iOS device, Apple doesn't let you sync music from iTunes to Android.

Here're two methods to transfer iTunes music to an Android device, and I'd like to show you one by one.
By default, iTunes store music in a folder on your computer. Hence, you can find the folder and copy your favorite songs and paste to your Android phone or tablet.
iTunes save path:
PC: C:\Users\Administrator\Music\iTunes\iTunes Media\Music
Mac: Macintosh HD/Users/user/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media/Music
- Follow the save path above to find the iTunes music folder.
- Connect your Android device to the computer by plugging in USB cables.
