A new update to AirSync Android app from DoubleTwist, an app company that started in 2008, allows people to share photos, videos or music through their connected television, Xbox or PlayStation3, thus effectively using the Android phone as a media server.
DoubleTwist was among the first to sync media files, and it became popular especially because it worked with iTunes. Around 2009, DoubleTwist started supporting Android, and its latest, free update works on Android 1.6 or higher versions.
Users who already have DoubleTwist AirSync app installed on their Android smartphones just need to look for an update in the App Market.
AirSync allows users to sync media between a computer and a smartphone, without a USB cord. If users download new content on their computer, it is synced with the smartphone automatically whenever they are within the wireless range. Engadget reported being able to sync data between a smartphone and Google TV, though DoubleTwist hasn’t said anything about that yet.
