An android app for seeing iTunes data
December 20, 2012 10:59 AM   Subscribe

I have a rather specific question regarding iTunes and android. I'm looking for an app that will locally save, on my android phone, the data of what is in my itunes library in a browsable way, WITHOUT actually having to put the music itself on my phone. I'm imagining an app that could, say, parse my iTunes library file and let me save & browse it on my phone. (The reason I want something like this is because I use Amazon's cloud drive to store my music, and it's a great service, but the Amazon mp3 app is not very good for browsing my music collection. For example, I can't search by genre or composer there. Moving to another cloud provider, eg Google Play or iTunes match, won't work because they don't provide sufficient space.)

Do you mean the 25,000 track limit on iTunes match?

Response by poster: Yeah, and also the 20,000 track limit on Google Play.

Another work around could be using a streamer like subsonic.

AudioGalaxy is another such streamer.

Your iTunes library is in an XML file. Last summer I was fiddling around and exported it into excel and it is in my Dropbox. Far from ideal since you can't filter or throw thr data into a pivot table.

I don't have the file in google docs right now but on another spreadsheet if you visit google docs in your rouser you can use filters(I can on my iPad so I imagine Google let's android users do that). So maybe that's an option.
