How to Transfer Music from Computer to Nexus

-- Thursday, May 16, 2013
My smartphone gave me a hard time yesterday. I have a new collection of music on my computer, but it took me the whole night to transfer music from my computer to my Nexus 5 phone till I finally gave up. First, it moves really slow in the process of copying those songs. Then it comes to the format issue. It turned out that all my new songs can't be played on my device. I couldn't help but searching for the answer today here.

And that's how I get to know one more amazing feature about TunesGo. It simplifies and speeds up the process of music transfer, especially when you have large amount of songs. What's more, it automatically covert incompatible formats for your handset. Let's cut the chase and see why it rocks!

Take the trial version of the program to manage your Nexus now.
