As they continue their efforts on the desktop front to make it easier for users to control the media on their Android phones, doubleTwist has taken a sharp turn around the hairpin and launched a companion app for Android. By searching the Android market for “doubleTwist” right now, you can find one of the best media players you’re bound to get for some time.
While I certainly don’t mind Android’s default media features, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. Users have since turned to third party solutions such as the app “Three”, while others have all but given up on using their devices for music (features such as an equalizer setting really are missed by a majority of audiophiles).
The one thing that doubleTwist does differently, though, is that it brings that iPod/iPhone/iTunes experience that we’ve all been admittedly longing for to Android. The app interfaces directly with the Windows and Mac applications allowing you to sync movies, pictures, and music to your device and play it in a player worthy of handling all of those files. After downloading the app out of sheer interest, I must say I’m quite impressed.
A widget would be a welcome addition – even the stock music player offers one, albeit not the best solution – but I have a feeling we haven’t seen the last of doubleTwist in the market. Check it out now and see if it won’t replace whatever solution you’re using now for music.
