    I can't find it anywhere. I tried downloading old versions but it's not as clean as it once was.

    Are there any alternatives to getting your iTunes music on your Windows Phone? Any alternatives? I tried to use an old app version but it only syncs like 1/5 of all my songs and takes 2 days for that minimal sync.

    This is ridiculous! :/

    It's not super well reviewed in the App store. Have you had a lot of experience with it? Is it the right platform for me, in your opinion?

    As in:

    Macbook/ iTunes --> GROOVE MUSIC --> Windows Phone, Lumia 920

    I use it works great for me... On my Mac, Surface Pro, IPhone, Icon. I tried other apps for Google Music and they were pretty bad, stopped working a lot because Google would change something then the Dev would have to fix the app. After uploading all of my music to Onedrive I ended up buying a Groove Music pass because I like the service better than any other on Windows now. It works fine without a pass, you just can't download music you don't own, stream only. A good tutorial on Windows Central about it.

    Thanks for the link. I'm curious, do you use the paid service though? :-/ I'm trying to stay free (already on iTunes Match).

    I do but it's not necessary, Like Spotify you gain the ability to download anything, without the paid version your own music only. Another alternative is to load a Micro SD card with your iTunes music on your Mac then use in your 920 with Groove or another app. That won't work if your music is in match and not downloaded though.
