    I have a buddy who is heavily invested in itunes, and the entire apple scene. He has several macs, apple tv, ipads, iphone. Anything apple this guy has it - drives me nuts lol.

    Anyway we were recently discussing bb10 and he was impressed and asked about how well itunes works on blackberrys.

    I couldn't really give him an answer since I don't use itunes (despite trying to use an iphone myself). I know I've seen an app for the playbook. I'm pretty sure desktop manager would allow you to sync content but again I'm not sure.

    Can you do it wirelessly from a PC/mac, do you need cloud storage?

    Can anyone shed some light on to the current apps/process to share content?

    You can definitely import music/video from iTunes, via desktop manager and then to bb. Other than that iTunes don't really work on blackberries, as they don't work on anything else but on iPhone/iPod/iPad.
    If your buddy is heavily invested into apple ecosystems he needs to know that won't be able to use any of the apps he purchased from iTunes/AppStore on a Blackberry.

    Apps are understandable, it would be the music, movies, he purchased through itunes.

    Music from iTunes can be listened on on a BlackBerry provided there are no DRMs on the songs. (Apple stopped having DRMs on iTunes songs in 2009.)

    Movies from iTunes cannot be watched on a BlackBerry.

    Is it a protection or format issue? I play .mp4 video files without a problem on my phone.

    Well, if he purchased music and movies from itunes, he got only himself to blame.

    iTunes movies are M4P format which is different and protected.

    Ahh so it is a protection issue then, because IIRC that p stands for protected

    I would be very surprised if weren't possible to download protection-free movies. I know after much customer chagrin Apple did relent and began providing DRM-free music, so movies in my mind are a logical extension. It would be--to use a term often thrown around here--a deal breaker

    So there is a highly rated Playbook/ Blackberry phone app that wierlessly syncs your iTunes library to your device. . .Buy iTunes Sync - Download iTunes Sync - Buy Apps from BlackBerry App World. . .The developer has expressed that he will be making the app available for the BB10 release. . . There is also a iTunes video sync app Buy iTunes Video Sync - Download iTunes Video Sync - Buy Apps from BlackBerry App World but I'm not sure about what plan there are for its availability on BB10 . . .you can definitely check out the dev's Software blog . . .or just PM him right here on Crackberry! http://forums.crackberry.com/members...igham-2955125/
