You just got back from the store with your shiny new HTC One, you’re ready to crank some tunes through those BoomSound speakers, when you realize: you don’t have any tunes. You spent the last 10 years buying music in iTunes, now it’s locked in Apple’s walled garden, where only the Apple Faithful with their iones ids are deemed worthy enough to listen to it.
But you paid for that music, you deserve to listen to it on whatever device you want! Fortunately, the Music Manager makes it easy to import all your iTunes music into ay Music, where you can download or stream it to your Android devices. Here’s how to do it.

This probably goes without saying, but be sure to sign into Music Manager with the same Account you’ll use as your primary account on your Android device. Once you’ve entered your account credentials, you’ll want to upload your music to ay.
