From Apple to Android

Hey everyone,
I've been looking at this and can't figure it out...maybe y'all can help me.

I've been an Apple user in most everything. I have a Mac Book. My wife has an iMac. We both have iPhones.

But for Christmas, I got a Google Nexus 7. And I LOVE it. Great value and awesome functionality.

So as you can imagine while I'm ready to spend some money in Google Play, I would like to know how I can transfer my books and music to my Nexus 7, if I can.

Sorry if this is there somewhere, I just wanted to get cracking on this. Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the club! Nexus FTW
Are your books from iBooks and your music from iTunes? I'm not sure about the iBooks, but for kindle, nook, kobo, and overdrive books there are apps to sync your collections. I have a Mac with snow leopard, and I had to get an android file transfer program to access the Nexus's memory. You can drag and drop easily. On a windows PC, you just plug it in and go.
You can also upload your music to the cloud and access via Google play music, but I haven't gotten around to it.

Agreed...the Nexus 7 is awesome.

I tried the Android file transfer program and it did move it over, but the Nexus couldn't read the book I tested because it's probably got the Apple DRM code on it.

I need to know how to strip that code. I use a MacBook.

Thanks, Virtua...I appreciate your response.

Ebooks from Apple’s iBookstore are usually encrypted with Apple’s own Fairplay DRM scheme.

The only tool that removes Apple’s DRM is Requiem by Brahms. Requiem is not included in the main tools archive, and is separately maintained by its author, Brahms.

The latest version as of November 2012 is 4.1 and works with iTunes 10.6 and above, Windows and Mac OS X. Unfortunately, because of a change in the way in which it works, it no longer removes DRM from iBooks.

The last version to remove DRM from iBooks was 3.3.5 and worked with iTunes 10.5 and above, Windows and Mac OS X. I have had reports that this no longer works, but I have not verified this.

Requiem has a Tor website: http://tag3ulp55xczs3pn.onion. To reach the site using Tor, you will need to install Tor (http://www.torproject.org). If you’re willing to sacrifice your anonymity, you can use the regular web with tor2web. Just go to http://tag3ulp55xczs3pn.tor2web.com.

Alternatively, you can download it from these download links:
Requiem Windows application: http://www.datafilehost.com/download-b015485b.html

MD5: 954f9ecf42635fae77afbc3a24489004

Requiem Mac OS X application: http://www.datafilehost.com/download-50608ba6.html

MD5: 4e7dc46ad7e0b54bea6182c5ad024ffe

Requiem source code: http://www.datafilehost.com/download-af8f91a1.html

MD5: e175560590a154859c0344e30870ac73


I don't have ibooks, so I cannot verify if this works or not. I was able to strip the DRM from all my Kindle books and convert them to epub by following this guy's instructions.

It kept giving me an error. You know, I don't have a ton of books. I'll just buy the books for the Nexus. Kinda sucks that Apple puts it's proprietary stamp on something they didn't produce. It seems that if I buy a book, I should be able to read it on any device that I own. Oh well, such is life. Thanks again, guys!

It's not Apple, it's the publishers. If I don't have an e-book in clean non-DRM epub format then I buy it from Amazon. Since the kindle software is available on all kinds of platforms, it kind of mitigates the sting of the DRM.

I have about a hundred books in iTunes, and not a single one has any type of DRM. It all depends on the source of the e-book.

Yep, that's the way to go if platform portability is your goal.

We haven't had a good Android vs. iOS debate here in a while, so I figured I'd bump this thread with an article about how an avid iPhone user (and tech writer) chose to make the switch to Android recently. This is just part 1 of 3, though, so we'll have to wait for the full story.

http://www.techhive.com/article/2030...o-android.html

Enjoy.

Having used both, iphones cant even begin to compare with newer Androids. They're not even in the same ballpark, and I firmly believe that anyone who still think iphones are better either haven't used a good Android phone or are just Apple homers.

Agreed. Back in the the Froyo/GB days, Apple was clearly ahead. There were reasons for liking Android, but it was pretty rough around the edges. ICS and JB are great though.

I can't imagine having used an SIII and then being handed the latest iPhone and going, "oh, this is ****ing great." But you hear more and more the opposite. I've been surprised lately at how many SIII's and Notes I see around, especially with businessmen.


I also like the idea of being in the Google ecosystem and not Apple's. I've finally cut myself off from iTunes, and mostly from Microsoft. If I want to switch from HTC to Samsung to Nexus to whatever, it's easier as hell. Same with between Mac and PC. Even iOS and Android are easy enough to switch between as a google user, at least compared to someone invested in Apple.
