Syncing iTunes Podcasts to your Android

by djsharpe on November 27, 2011

Every now and then I see someone asking how to sync podcasts. There are a lot of ways to do it, but I thought I’d share how I get my podcasts onto my HTC Inspire.

On my computer I use iTunes for podcasts. Obviously iTunes won’t sync with Android devices, so I had to figure out a work around. What you want to do is create a special playlist that holds all your podcasts. You can do this by :
File > New Smart Playlist.

For the rule, use “Media Kind” “is” “Podcast” and make sure live updating is enabled.

Now, all your podcasts should show up in your new playlists.

After this all you need to do is sync that playlist. Most Android music sync apps support playlist syncing. I use MusicwithMe and it works great for me. But you can use pretty much any syncing app as long at it is able to pull playlists from iTunes.
