Editors' Review

As the mobile arm of the DoubleTwist media library for Mac and Windows, the DoubleTwist mobile player is tasked with syncing your music, videos, and podcasts to and from your desktop and your Android phone. The app lets you find songs by artist, album, title, or playlist. There are also shortcuts for synced videos and podcasts. The player then spins your picks, giving you basic controls to pause, skip, and shuffle.

We tested DoubleTwist's PC-to-phone syncing on two Android phones. One transfer worked quickly and as advertised, but the other became a source of intense and mounting frustration with incomplete and failed syncs, and even an attempt that led to a memory card error.

When it came to performance, we found the Android player itself to be reliable, but underfeatured. If your music library is fit to burst, expect a lengthy first sync that could take 10 minutes or so, though subsequent syncing should be speedier, especially if you're dealing with smaller media loads. We'd like to see a search bar, a genre category, and the ability to build an ad-hoc playlist by adding a song to the queue and subscribe to podcasts, to name a few points on our wish list. The app could also benefit from controls on the lock screen. Plans are in the works for a home screen widget that will control the player outside the app.

DoubleTwist is advertising version 1.0 of its player as free for a limited time, but there's no indication at this point how much the company intends to charge. Until the feature set gets a boost, we remain skeptical that charging for the app is justified or will increase its usage.

"Pro vers. doesn't sync playlists & no customer service"

October 08, 2012  |  By theredqueentheory

2012-10-08 16:56:17  |  By theredqueentheory

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Since I only bought this in order to sync my Podcast playlists, there are no pros.

Cons

The only playlists that will sync are "most played, top rated and recently added". No other playlists get synced to the phone. Bought pro version and no customer service, only community forum. Unacceptable.

Summary

Would love if it would sync usable playlists.

"Works perfectly for me."

April 25, 2012  |  By msetzer

2012-04-25 07:08:59  |  By msetzer

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Hassle free Syncing over USB with free version. Downloads all album art with $4.99 version which I use. Equalizer also comes with this version and does a good job. Nice lock screen with currently playing information. Next/Previous song using volume buttons (hold down) while screen is off.

Cons

First download of album art hogs CPU in a huge way, at least on my Optimus V. Can't build your own playlist on the phone. Have to build playlist in iTunes.

Summary

In short, I love this software. It makes syncing as easy as iTunes.

"Problems with latest version"

November 24, 2011  |  By Radioguy506

2011-11-24 12:43:45  |  By Radioguy506

 |  Version: DoubleTwist Player for Android 1.5.5

Pros

Like the addition of a graphic equalizer

Cons

I've had problems syncing music from iTunes. Many of my songs now show up as "Unknown Artist" on my phone, even though complete album and artist information shows up on the computer app. I tried clearing data on my phone and re-syncing, but that didn't help. Not sure if deleting the app and reinstalling will fix the problem.

Summary

I love the air sync feature, but if I can't get it to import all of the album information, then it's almost useless. I'll try a bit longer to get it working, but it's getting very frustrating.
