My granddaughter had an iPad and now has an iPhone. We would like to sync her music between two devices. She does not have a computer - so using iTunes is not an option. Is this possible? If so, what is the procedure?

    It's a paid service but Match works.  I think it's $25/yr.  Its a cloud service so your music is sent to iCloud and will sync to all devices without iTunes.  Settings>icloud>music match. 

    I don't know of another way without iTunes on a computer.

    Well, if you do have a computer but don't synchronize via iTunes (you must have iTunes on the computer!), you can still use FreeSync ( http://www.iskysoft.com/freesync.html ) to easily transfer music between the two devices.

    This means all music on each device was purchased from the iTunes store. If so, she can re-download all music on one device that was purchased/downloaded on the other device without having to pay for the music again.

    And at Settings > Store on each device, select Music for automatic download. Music downloaded from the iTunes store on one device will be downloaded automatically by the other device.

    She doesn't have a computer.  That's the issue.  If Music match is enabled.  The missing songs from albums you have, regardless of bought in iTunes will be filled in as part of the service.  The program you mentioned requires a computer which she does not have.
