This is probably the best media player for Android I’ve seen so far. Everything looks and feels just perfect.
We talking about the doubleTwist app itself, but it’s only a part of the bigger project with the same name started in 2009. Positioned as “iTunes for Android” or “The Cure for iPhone Envy” it is certainly not that apple-polished even today, but either not so far away from what it claims.
Supporting the Android and a wide variety of platforms, it features main PC or MAC central software similar to iTunes, that allows you to connect and sync music and video between computer and mobile device. Most importantly, it can automatically convert data to most suitable format, that exactly your phone would support and play flawlessly.
But what I admire the most is its awesome appearance. All buttons are large and easy to tap on, design is evidently made by a person with sense of style, album covers and song titles are well placed exploiting modern high-res screens to their fullest. Everything unnecessary like star rating or shuffle controls could be hidden with a single touch.
And finally, video playback is unbelievably fast and smooth (as distinct from RockPlayer). I hadn’t tested it with truly HD movies like 480p or 720p, but common dvd-rips were running with ease, never mind an optimized-for-mobile ones.
