Peruse the Android Market this morrow and you might come across a hot new addition from the folks at DoubleTwist. That's right, the iTunes-aping desktop sync manager has gone native on the Android platform and early feedback on its media player implementation has been positive. The free music and video player app does that whole seamless thing quite well, apparently, interfacing directly with your Windows or Mac computerino and porting over relevant playlists, ratings and media. A widget and other features are coming soon, though you'll likely have to pay for them, given the "free for a limited time" note on the download page. Better get it while the gettin's good.
Does anybody know which version of Android the player supports? It says all versions on AppBrain in the description, but it doesn't show up in a market search on 1.5... Should be free right now, so I should be able to see it even with the lack of paid apps here.
I just installed this but I think you need to sync it with the doubleTwist program on your PC before it will work. It doesn't see any of the music I put on my SD card - just my ringtones and notification sounds (which is rather annoying)
plus I cant' find a way to edit MP3 tags in doubleTwist on the PC
Since it says "for all Android version" in the market description many people were confused when they couldn't find it on their phones. I emailed their tech support asking for clarification, they confirmed it is for 2.1+. I hope they have a good reason, like API dependence, for cutting off more than half the phones on the market.
