How to Get Music From iTunes to a Droid Phone

By the beginning of 2009, iTunes already had sold more than 6 billion songs, with no sign of slowing down. However, Apple has designed the iTunes software to work only with other Apple products like iPods, iPhones and iPads. So if you've bought music through iTunes and want to listen to your music on your Droid phone, you won't be able to transfer the files using Apple's software. However there are several tools that will allow you to sync your iTunes library to your Droid.
