We’ve covered doubleTwist before as a way to sync all your media content across multiple smartphones, including BlackBerry, Palm’s webOS devices and Android. Now it looks like T-Mobile and doubleTwist have officially partnered to simplify music management for Android users and may bundle the application with select handsets, including the Fender MyTouch 3G.
While iTunes is tied to iPhones and iPods, doubleTwist brings a familiar iTunesesque interface over to wide variey of devices. Music, playlists, photos, video syncing…it’s all supported. One of the only “downsides” with T-Mobile’s doubleTwist is that it lacks integration to Amazon’s MP3 store. Maybe that’s due to Amazon’s Mp3 Store app being available in the Android market. Maybe it’s due to some licensing wrangling. Maybe T-Mobile is planning their own music service a-la-Verizon’s Vcast. Whatever the reason, that functionality is sorely missed (of course, if you really want it, you can certainly download the full version that includes the Amazon MP3 goodness) .
You can even share your content to Facebook and Flickr right in doubleTwist. Android users — and potential Android users — who may have been pining after a simple method for getting their music and media library onto their device can now enjoy a simple drag-and-drop interface. Think of it as the “iTunes for everything else.”
