Simple Music SYNC for Android Phones… S-Droid

I know there are plenty of solutions that you can manage your music in and sync it to your android phone such as DoubleTwist, WinAmp, and The Missing Sync for Android and personally I use to use DoubleTwist as my favorite. Although now days it seems more and more time consuming waiting for DoubleTwist to scan my music files and sync them to my phone than I have time for.

My music collection consists of several hundreds of songs and I want my sync to go as fast, errorless, and as streamline as possible. I’ve finally created a simple Windows application that you can specify the location of your music, and then the drive letter of your phone(or SD Card in Phone) and have it copy your music over in seconds instead of minutes(unless you have a ton of music).

How to Install S-Droid:

First go ahead and head over to the download page in your favorite browser of choice and select the “Install” button(located at the bottom of this page).

Next you should see a Security Warning such as the one pictured below, press the “Install” button.

Next the application will download some online files it needs and check your OS for the .Net 4 Framework provided by Microsoft, if it does not find the Framework it will prompt you to install. Once the installer finishes it should Launch the program.

P.S. The music you want to be copied must all be either in the same folder, or you must select the folder the music is in individually. Current release (1.0.0.0) does not include the feature to search through tree nodes for the music.

Download Link for S-Droid Application

By downloading the application S-Droid you take full responsibility if anything goes wrong with your phone or  any device you try and use it on. In no way is Taylor Brazelton, Ryanb58, or Tech-FYI responsible for any problems caused hardware or software. Please use with care and caution. I always suggest running a virus scanner before downloading anything else just don’t download the file. The application uses an active-X installer one-click created by MS VS 2010. Enjoy :D!
