It takes 3 steps to transfer music from computer to iPhone. There is no need for iTunes, jailbreak or some additional players.

Listening to music on-the-go is the most natural thing to do in the digital era we live in. But still, Apple doesn’t make it easy for those who would love to transfer music from computer to iPhone for offline listening.

You can also use the same method to learn how to put music on iPod without iTunes.

Therefore, you have no power to transfer music that 1. isn't compatible by default, 2. wasn't purchased in iTunes Store.

Also, there’s a threat to have all your music & videos wiped out if your iPhone is already synced with another iTunes library.

Luckily, with just a couple of clicks and one smart application, you can avoid extra hassle and transfer music from PC or Mac to iPhone without iTunes and syncing. To get a better idea how all this works – just watch the video below:
