There seems a huge need to manage iPhone, iPad or iPod music. I've always been asked with questions like "how to delete songs downloaded to my iPhone", "how do I transfer music from iPhone to iTunes", "how to manually manage music on my iPod", "can I manage iPhone music without syncing", bla bla bla… In fact, I never think it difficult to organize songs on iPhone, iPad, or iPod.
It is not convenient to edit songs directly on your iOS device without a third hand. Many of you may also suffer this issue—when you manage iPhone, iPad, iPod music with iTunes, you have to sync and other data would be gone. For example, when you deleted items or add songs from iTunes to iPhone, the new and current data on your device will deleted. Worse still, in many cases music is not syncing with iTunes although you surrender.
So my answer to those asked questions is, why not drop iTunes? There are hundreds of workable methods that are much better than iTunes for music management. Here I'd like to introduce the easiest way to manage iPhone, iPad, iPod songs without iTunes - even my old grandma can do it quickly.
