For those of you with an Android phone, you may have found it a bit difficult to sync any, and all, media to your phone (especially if you are tied into that iTunes ecosystem). Well, T-Mobile really understands that and is embarking on a campaign to bring an app that syncs media to Android phones. The answer, DoubleTwist, which is basically an iTunes for every other device, plus it looks like it so no relearning. It is being said that T-Mobile is partnering with DoubleTwist to pre-load the software onto upcoming Android phones, and not just limiting it to the Fender MyTouch.
