How to transfer downloads from ‘FreeMusic’ app by Sensible Code with iTunes?

I have the App Freemusic by Sensible Code, and I need to transfer a good amount of purchases from the app so I can update my iPod. Should I Sync or Transfer purchases or should I cancel both of those? I would not like to go through and have to re-download all the songs.

Justin answers:

I dont own that app, but what i do to get free music is 1. I go to, 2. I search my song, 3. I right click download and click saved download as and rename it as a song, 4. I play the song and it auto matically goes to itunes, and if it does not, then i drag the song over to itunes. 5. I sync my iPhone and then there you have it :), if you want to do it directly i would use an app like Free Music Download! Good Luck!

I’ve recently bought a new iPhone 3Gs – is it normal for the battery to run out everyday?

Just wondering if I should expect better battery. I use it for games/ipod for a couple of hours a day and normal phone use.

Justin answers:

Oh yes it is very normal for the battery to not last more then 3 hours. Here’s some tips for squeezing a little extra time out of your battery (from the iPhone Life mag):

1. Upgrade your os (doesn’t apply to you because you have an iPhone 3GS, but if you need to update it go to iTunes on your computer, select your device in the Source List and if there’s a newer version available it will give you the option to update)

2. Turn off everything you don’t need.

• the screen for instance. Don’t wait for it to shut off when your done with your iPhone, instead press the on/off button on the top right corner of the phone.

• turn off wi-fi and bluetooth. If your not using wi-fi or Bluetooth, then turn them off. For Bluetooth go to Home > Settings > General > Bluetooth and tap the on/off button. And wi-fi: Home > Settings, tap on wi-fi and tap the on/off button. (note: I’ve done this and haven’t noticed much of a difference as far as the battery goes, but you might want to give it a try)

• turn off all wireless using airplane mode (when airplane mode is on, no wireless signal can reach your phone, supposedly this will also saves power) To turn airplane mode on (and disable wireless) go to Home > Settings and select airplane mode on.

• turn off location services (location services allow the gps to find your phone on the map) to turn it off go to Home > Settings > General > Location services and tap the on/off button

• turn off push email by going to Home > Settings, and select “fetch new data” and move the push button to off. Set your fetch time to 15 mins and so forth. (this will fetch email every so often, depending on what time you selected, say every hour. This will save some battery life)

3. Avoid CPU-intensive activities. (this includes watching YouTube videos and alot of interesting iPhone apps. This one I didn’t find very useful, because that’s the reason I bought the phone. The article says something similar to this but explains that these activies will drain your battery in a hurry, so I try to make sure my iPhone is connected when I play apps/games ect. It also says to avoid purchasing songs/apps from your phone, avoid leaving your phone connected to a computer that’s turned off and avoid moving around multiple screens)

4. Top off your battery whenever you can (plug it up to an external power supply, lol you already knew this!)

5. Final thoughs:

• poor cellular reception may drain your battery
• unauthorized apps running in the background may drain battery faster (this can happen if you jailbreak your iPhone, and ultimately installing apps that aren’t normally allowed on the phone)

• power down completely when you dont need to use your phone (yeah right) anyways just press and hold the sleep/wake button on the top right corner then slide the red bar to power off. Hold the button again to power back on.

There’s some other tips, like downloading some battery monitoring
apps (batterylog, free memory, lantern with battery level) also check out apples site at: I’ve written this whole thing on my iPhone 3gs and it’s still in good shape, but plug it up as most you can. Anyways hope this helps and if your interested check out They have good tips overall. Have fun with your iPhone!!!!!

Donald asks…

How do I transfer iPhone files to another laptop?

I have a memory stick if that’s required.
I use Vista on both computers.
I use 2.0.2 on the current one and the most recent on the newer one. The iPhone is the newest version, too. The newer one has the latest iTunes but I think the older one has 7.0.

Justin answers:

For the contacts, you will need to move them to your new computer manually, unless you sync the contacts and all that (which I don’t know how to do).

As for music, you can transfer it using your iPhone, in five simple steps, without downloading a thing:

1.) When your iPhone is plugged into iTunes on your old computer, check off the box that says “enable disk use”. Then you can add music to it using Windows Explorer.

2.) Find your iPhone in windows explorer. Drag your music from your iTunes library into your iPhone, using windows explorer. If you don’t have enough space, restore your iPhone, don’t add any songs back thru iTunes, and start again at step 1.

3.) In your new computer’s iTunes, go Edit>Preferences>Advanced>General, and check off the box that says “Copy files to iTunes music folder when adding to library”. You have to do this step or else iTunes will not be able to find the songs when your iPhone is unplugged.

4.) Then plug your iPhone in, and drag the songs into iTunes from their location in Windows Explorer.

5.) Now sync your iPhone to the new computer.

P.S. If you bought some of the songs through the iTunes Store, iTunes will tell you that the songs are “not authorized” to play on your new computer. To fix this, all you have to do is attempt to play one of the songs in iTunes, and then sign in using the account that you purchased the songs with.
You can disable disk use now if you want, or leave it on if you have enough room.
I recommend leaving it on if you can, because it’s a very good way to back up your songs if your computer breaks.

Do the same things with any Apps you may have.

As for photos, you can do the same thing as well, except drag the folder from Windows Explorer (old) to Windows Explorer (new), and then tell it where to find them.

Paul asks…

My husband has the iPhone and I have an iPod – can we share iTunes?

I’ve had my iPod for over a year and have purchased a ton of music through iTunes. My husband just purchased an iPhone. Is he able to upload all of the songs on our computer from iTunes? We each have our own login and what appears to be our own iTunes – but it seems silly that we would have to double purchase music.

Justin answers:

As long as he authorizes your computer or vice versa, you’ll be able to share tunes. ITunes allows the music bought from the iTunes Store to be played on up to 5 computers.

Ken asks…

How can i get songs i purchased in itunes on Phase(ipod game)?

i need to know how to get to be able to play songs i bought in itunes in the new ipod game phase please help!

Justin answers:

When you bought the game, I’m sure that automatically (on your ‘playlists’ column) appeared a “playlist” that says ‘Phase Songs”. You have to drag songs from your library onto your “Phase Playlist”. You’ll see that it takes a little while, that’s because the game has to analyze and convert the song into “Phase” format, so that it’s playable. You can’t convert songs that are less than 30 seconds long or more than 30 minutes long. After you drag the songs you wanted to the “Phase” playlist, then you connect your iPod (doesn’t work with iPhone or iPod Touch, though) and then you just wait, it will automatically transfer the phase playlist to the iPod. Turn on you iPod and check on games. You’ll see phase and you’ll be ready to play that instant !!!

P.S.- I recommend you play marathon on hard, it consists on playing 5 songs, it’s really fun, but hard too. If you complete one marathon, you’ll unlock the EXPERT difficulty !!!
Have a good one…
