    Hi everyone.

    I have two devices: one is Android (from work) and one is my personal iPhone.

    Always been an iPhone user but recently find out about the flexibility of being able to download mp3 files straight from the web into my Android device and listen offline.

    It's really great and it makes me grab my Android device after work when I am working out.

    - I don't have a streaming plan as I am outside the US.

    Is there any option for me? To listen to downloaded MP3s on my iPhone, while offline?

    I was told I can just sync the songs through iTunes but that's quite difficult as we are running linux at work.

    I don't know if this will help you or not... but you can run the Windows version of iTunes in Linux using a Wine derivative such as Wineskin or the like. You could also use CrossOver but that costs $$. Wine is free.

    Thanks for the reply. That's way to complicated. I take it there's no simple way of doing this :)

    Have you tried an app like Documents by Readdle? These sometimes have a download function I think. Other than that if Apple Music is available in your country, it also allows for offline storage. I'm sure others have more ideas.
