Perhaps one major difference that separates Android from iPhone is the former’s lack of iTunes-like software for managing media files. But that was before DoubleTwist, a new Android app came out recently.
In case you’re not aware, DoubleTwist is actually a desktop application which is available for various platforms. Its function is similar to the iTunes as it allows you to sync your files from from your mobile devices to your desktop computers.
For its Android app, DoubleTwist serves as a media player with a sleek interface. In fact it beats the default Android media player hands-down although you might see its striking resemblance with the default Android media player. What’s good about DoubleTwist for Android is that it integrates videos and podcasts to the main media player. So, it not only plays music but those two types of media files as well.
The app is easy to use and when used with the DoubleTwist app syncs your media files from your Android phones to your desktop easily. And guess what, DoubleTwist even lets you import your iTunes playlists, ratings and playcounts.
Overall, DoubleTwist for Android is a worthy download. It puts the Android media playback and management capability almost at par with the Apple iTunes.
