DVD Jon’s doubleTwist Evolves into a Media Management and Sharing App


What was once used to un-DRM songs purchased through iTunes, doubleTwist has now evolved into something a little more interesting and useful. The latest iteration (as you can see demo’d in the video above) is capable of identifying attached portable devices, detecting stored media, transferring PC audio / video / photos to one’s device (with one-the-fly format conversion for device compatibility), media sharing with friends, and social network media upload tie-ins to services like Facebook, Flickr, and YouTube. As far as I can tell, doubleTwist is only available for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard (no Windows version at this time). Below is a list of supported devices capable of syncing with doubleTwist. [via]
