Heya all!

I know iPhone seems to be the wave of the future from the Apple world, but Google's Android OS is giving IOS a run for the money.

I recently switched from iPhone 3GS to a Samsung Galaxy S running Android 2.1 on AT&T's network.

I'm looking for ways to sync my new Android phone with iTunes, iPhoto, etc., on my Mac.

Looking for ways to Jailbreak my Android, called "rooting" - but a bit scared...

Anybody have any thoughts? Opinions? Comments? Suggestions? Please post them here!

Thanks!

I have a Droid Incredible. Check out rooting videos on YT. It really doesn't seem that complicated.

I found that DoubleTwist dies if you try to sync a large photo or music library.

I found this one: http://www.salling.com/ and it seems to work better. It's FREE to start by resyncing everything every time you sync; but if you pay the shareware fee it speeds up the sync by only syncing what's changed.

Works pretty well.

I'm just finding the music player isn't very good... But that's a different issue.

Thanks Donna but my experience with Missing Sync hasn't been good, although my opinion is a few years old...
