By default, the "Sync iTunes" option will open in Simple Mode. This means that you can simply choose to copy all tracks from Android that are missing from iTunes, or all iTunes tracks which are missing from the connected Android device. If you only want certain tracks to be copied, you can switch to Advanced Mode to make specific selections.
