Media manager doubleTwist becomes the official iTunes of Android...for T-Mobile
Today, the first major carrier of phones with Android support, T-Mobile, announced that doubleTwist media manager is now available across all of its Android smartphones, and that the music, video, and photo sync software can now be downloaded directly from T-Mobile for Windows XP and above and OS X 10.5 and above.
Users who come to the Android platform from iPhone frequently complain about Android's lack of desktop sync and the ability to create music playlists. In fact, the quality of the music ecosystem in general is one of the top ten complaints about the Android platform.
But with the free doubleTwist software installed on the user's desktop, media sync and playlisting are integrated into Android and the Amazon MP3 store (Android's official music download partner).
While doubleTwist is actually supported by nearly every Android device, (and practically every current mobile ecosystem) T-Mobile's partnership with doubleTwist gives T-Mobile subscribers a customized version of the software to make the process of syncing and integration more "simple and accessible."
