Unleash your Apple iTunes music collection with DoubleTwist
by on June 20, 2010
DoubleTwist is a massive thorn in the side of Apple. The company seemingly mocks Apple’s exclusivity by opening up users’ music collection (even if it is stuck in iTunes) for use on a number of non-Apple devices.
Finally DoubleTwist has found itself on to Android market, meaning you can unlock your Apple-based music collection for use on your handset.
With this in mind, DoubleTwist is the first (of our knowledge, at least) application that treats your Android phone as a real music device – allowing you to synch the phone with your computer.
The idea of DoubleTwist is better than the app itself. Yes, it does make it a whole lot easier to manage the music on your phone – something which is sorely needed with Android – but the app is still far too simple to be a must-have.
Setup is a cinch. As long as you have the free desktop programme loaded on to your computer, all you need to do is download the app and then DoubleTwist will recognise your handset as another device.
From there, you can synch your music collection how you want. If you don’t want to use the desktop app, then you can still use DoubleTwist as your phone’s music player but that’s only half the fun.
Easy to use but needs some sort of widget to do it justice, DoubleTwist isn’t the revolutionary music app it wants to be, but it is far better than anything else out there.
