    Is there a free program that transfers all my music from my iPhone with they picture of the song and album and the song info or is there a cydia tweak that does the same?

    It needs to transfer 1507 songs by the way.

    iTunes is software, or an application.

    I guess you do not want to use iTunes then?

    Not really, but let me use a free www search engine to find out.


    TransPod


    iTunes is an application, just like iMovie or Safari or Firefox or Pixelmator. They all are software. Mac OS X, or OS X, is software too.

    Why do you not want to use iTunes?

    What is so bad about iTunes? You do not even need to have a full iTunes library, you can simply drag the music you want onto the iPhone visible in iTunes.

    the best 'program' that one would use to transfer music from an iPhone into iTunes is called … … … iTunes!
    and yes, it is free.
    the best 'program' that one would use to transfer music to an iPhone from iTunes is similarly called iTunes
    or are we all missing something here in this discussion?

    While iTunes can do that, I used DeTune, the successor to exPod for those transfer issues.

    There's a possibility that the iPhone is not set up with his library... and that OP wants to copy the files into the library without having to wipe the iPhone.

    iFunBox can do this if you have a Windows based system... not sure they've updated they Mac variant to have this feature.

    I had to pull my GF's dad's music off his iPad and iFunBox worked wonderfully :)

    Obviously, this is if you no longer have a backup of your songs or whatever. Enjoy :)

    then you'd simply isolate your iTunes preferences file out of your Library as well as your iTunes media folder, pull your iPhone music into virgin iTunes library and then once this is done, add the original stuff back in.

    presumably the app DeTune that simsaladimbamba is suggesting does hat same task for you

    This whole thread has me extremely confused. iTunes seems like it would be the best for all of what you're trying to accomplish.

    except for DesertEagle's thread which clarifies things:

    There's a possibility that the iPhone is not set up with his library... and that OP wants to copy the files into the library without having to wipe the iPhone.
