If you don't want to deal with iTunes

Provided you can use a PC, do what I do, use a third party media manager, such as CopyTrans Manager. IME it works quite well to upload supported media types to most of the newer iDevices & iOS versions. Go here for more info:

*If you do not want to deal with the BS, potential spyware/malware, go here instead-

Navigate/scroll down to the CopyTrans Manager section, then select 'Downloads' > 'download zip' (advanced users)

The 'official way' is to sync with the iTunes library on your PC/Mac/laptop. tells about it.

It seems that Apple doesn't yet realise that more and more people only have a phone and/or tablet, and no PC/Mac/laptop. But they can find third party music downloaders in the app store.
