doubleTwist is one of the most popular music players available for Android, and it's a rather attractive one to boot. It has large, finger-friendly icons, the standard grid-interface for browsing albums, and an overall dark theme that's easy on the eyes. Unfortunately, this look starts to fall apart when you fire up the app on a tablet, as it suffers from stretched-out-phone-UI syndrome. It's a disease that can afflict even the best Android apps, but doubleTwist has teased a new version of the app that has been completely cured.


This new tablet UI introduces a sidebar for skipping around between the different areas of the app. Overall, this is the same doubleTwist we know and love, just with smoother gradients and a subtler logo. Here's to hoping the next release looks as solid as what we see here, but we may have to sit tight for the time being, as this UI isn't yet stable enough for a beta release, let alone something suitable for the general public.

    tablet optimized apps are getting better.

    Can't wait

    That's more like it. Now they just need to allow their alarm app to play music via a bluetooth speaker instead of forcing the usage of the phone's bultin one.

      How so? I use their alarm app, and it plays through my bluetooth speaker.

      • http://www.nonsensebb.com/ Dextro

        You're right. It works now... Except it comes out of BOTH the internal speaker and the bluetooth one (hence lag) xD

    haha why are the navigation buttons different sizes? #MockupProbs

      One possible explanation could be the devices are running with ROMs having different DPI settings. Like Paranoid Android.

    I loved this app before I switched to Google Play Music.

      I went just the opposite after Play music removed the ability to read local tracks from an SDcard. Seriously considering the "magic radio" doubletwist offers a subscription to. If it's comparable to Play music then it's a hell of a savings. (24.99/year and you get doubletwist pro for free)

    I basically make
    about $6,000-$8,000 a month online. It's enough to comfortably replace my old
    jobs income, especially considering I only work about 10-13 hours a week from
    home. This is how to start>...........www.jobs34.ℂom

    They still need to fix the access to cached Play Music. It only works if you have SuperSu installed, and that just screams lazy to me. I gave up on their alarm clock app over that. On Timely now, so it all worked out.

    • Qliphah

      Not lazy, google being stingy. It's no coincidence that they removed access to removable media from Play Music around the same time. Oh and the doubletwist swiss alarm clock is the by far the best looking night time analog time screensaver around.

      • sweenish

        It is lazy. What kind of root solution is wholly dependent on just one superuser client?

        Can you name any other app that requests root but REQUIRES only on particular superuser app.

    Have tried over 20 music players, but stuck with this for 1 feature

    Stream to TV/HomeTheatre via DLNA.

    Found no other music player that does it better
