DoubleTwist's unique Android music app has been able to stream audio to Apple's AirPlay standard for some time, and to Qualcomm's competing AllPlay WiFi speakers since May. But for some reason, the company's Pandora-style streaming music service Magic Radio wasn't included. They have now corrected this oversight, and the latest version of the DoubleTwist app on the Play Store can now stream Magic Radio to AirPlay or AllPlay devices. You'll need the $8.99 upgrade to access streaming.

DoubleTwist can connect to multiple AirPlay and AllPlay outputs, selectively streaming to any of them with the app's built-in interface. The original feature of DoubleTwist, automated music syncing to and from desktop computers, remains in place. The ad-free Magic Radio service costs $25 a year with a 7-day trial, and purportedly uses a catalog of "over 13 million songs." At present it looks like there's no integrated way to stream Magic Radio to a Chromecast, so that's one up for Pandora and Google Play Music, I suppose.

    Yeah, and a ton of empty space. Now half my screen is taken up by controls. It's frustrating when you're using it on a Note 3 now.

    Doubletwist is the worst. They have terrible customer service and seem to never fix the bugs and just keep adding new ones.

      Nor do they implement features that have actually been requested. Gapless playback is something that has been requested of the dT developers for literally years, and they just keep saying it's "under consideration." It's not that hard on 4.1+, so the fact that they haven't done it yet is just stupid.

      Long ago I would have considered buying their pro package or whatever for gapless and access to podcasts, but seeing how they've handled requests and customer service in general, I've changed my mind.

    Still no support for Smb for playing directly from nas, mediaplayer or computer if I read correctly. And no support for cloud-services like gDtive, OneDrive, Box, etc. I just don't get why hardly any music app has that, while so many people do not have external Micro Sd on their devices such as Nexus Droid's.

    Now forced to use ArmAmp, Beat and BubbleUPnP for my music on my internal (flac&mp3) and external (mp3) cloud.
