Have you heard of Rod Steward? He used to be the most popular rock star in the world, and one of the most talent songwriters. Although he is 68 years old now, he is going to release an album of collections of the past 12 years’ non-standards. I rarely listen to rock music, but I have listened to some of this singer’s songs on the Internet, I think they are awesome.

Then I bought some of his songs on iTunes and synced them with my iPhone so that I can listen anytime I want. One day, I shared these songs with a friend of mine, he was interested in these songs and want me to send these songs to him. However, he didn’t buy an iPhone and his mobile phone was the newly bought Samsung Galaxy S4, so I tried to find some ways to transfer music from iPhone to Samsung Galaxy S4.

Generally speaking, two ways are here to transfer music from iPhone to Galaxy S4. One way is to transfer with iTunes. Open iTunes on your computer, find your bought songs in the music list, choose the songs you want to transfer and copy them to the Galaxy S4. Transfer with iTunes is commonly used, but you can just transfer one by one with iTunes, if you have many songs to transfer, it will be a lot of work.

The other way is using professional transfer software. Leawo iTransfer is seemed to be powerful i-devices’ transfer software. It was easy for me to transfer the music from iPod to Samsung Galaxy S4, so I would like to introduce this software to you and show you how to transfer:
