If I want to change the song order of a playlist on my phone, the order messes up unless I'm moving songs further down in the playlist. this gets really annoying because I don't want to have to move, like, 20+ songs when I only want to move one
Is it possible to sync my iTunes podcast subscriptions using the new doubleTwist Sync app for Windows? The problem is I can only sync the downloaded podcast but not the entire list of my subscribed podcast from iTunes. I hope this is possible with this app so that I can automatically view my subscriptions in my android device (Galaxy Note 2) as well without adding my favorite podcast channel again one by one.
Can't seem to figure this out.....I want to play all my iTunes library content on my android phone OVER MY WIFI (I do not want it sync'd or copied to my android phone). Kind of like how SONOS accesses my music? Is this possible?
when I play a record with mixed songs (a live album for example) doubletwist insert a gap in the track change that isn't there. I did try the standard android player and that don't happen. help please....! best, Rui
Hi again, any word on getting ALAC support? I was told that doubletwist was the best app for people coming over from iphone. I dont want to transcode as I want the files to remain lossless. I also dont want to convert to wav or flac as the music is fully tagged etc in itunes.
Rather disappointed about Android sync.... I want to sync my iTunes Library on a Mac (OS X 10.6.8, no more upgradable any further) to my Android mobile (Samsung S4 mini, 4.4.2). The sync to DoubleTwist seemed to run fine. Same number of titles in iTunes and Doubletwist/Mac, = 2076. After the first sync to my android mobile (several hours) DT the sync screen on the mac showed the same number. On the mobile I found the same number of files in the SD-card folder under ...Android/data/com.doubletwist.androidplayer/files. # of files. There was one error however: the Genres were wrong (about 12 instead of 80+). Then I detached the mobile, attached it later again an the Mac software now shows only 1024 titles (with about the number of 12 genres). I then restarted the mobile to trigger the music scan and rebuilt the DT database. No change, still 1024 titles shown on the mac now with 2133 in the android folder?! Interesting: when I select the Genres (or Album or Artist) selection for the Music library (instead of iTunes as a source) I get a slightly higher number 2133 instead of 2076 (and 87 genres, the correct number, see screen shot). The Android directory contains exactly this number of files! However the library view on Mac shows 1024... All screen shots show the status of the corrupt situation. I am close to de-installing DT again! >> Any idea?
Hi Henry, yes 3.2, transcoding disabled, no errors, restarted the device to trigger the scan process (which obviously according to the comment in the blog entry about SD support above does update the AMS db) and cleaned the DB from the DT settings menu twice. >> I just downloaded the Scan App and ran it. DT and the standard Samsung MUSIC App now show the same list, eg. only 10 genres
Hi There, I'm having an issue with DoubleTwist on my Android. When I first installed it, the app successfully found and indexed all the media on my external sd card. However, when I use AirSync, the Windows App doesn't see the SD card and it instead syncs everything to the internal memory. How can this be fixed?
Hey guys, I just downloaded double twist to my PC and my galaxy s4 and every time I try to sync it, it says "sync failed" it will act like its retrieving all my music and pictures then it says "cannot find file" please someone help!! I am getting so frustrated!
Are you trying to sync items from your PC to your GS4?
Are you using USB or AirSync?
If you are using doubleTwist 4.0 ("doubleTwist Sync", available for Windows 7 and Windows 8 only), here is a step by step guide to syncing along with some troubleshoot tips. Please let us know at which step you are encountering problems and what the specific error message is. You can click on the sync summary to get more information on the error.
Hey. I love the app! But... there's one thing that's driving me crazy. It's the issues with tags, as has been mentioned elsewhere.
I'm using iTunes 11.4 on Mac 10.6.8. Whenever I import new music into my iTunes, I edit the tags to fit with how I want to organize my music. That often means changing the Genre.
So I'll do that, add it to a playlist, then open the DoubleTwist app on Mac, and AirSync that playlist to my Nexus 5. I wait patiently, and then see that somehow the phone has imported some of the new music with the new tags, and some with the old tags!
The only way I've figured out to fix this is to delete the mis-tagged music from my phone, completely uninstall the DoubleTwist app from my Mac and start all over. But how it's importing the tags that have already been changed, and getting some of them right and some of them not right, is a mystery to me.
Okay. So there's a way to reset the database on the phone, but there's not (as far as I know) a way to reset the database on the Mac app. I've played around with it, and it seems that once it's in the app it never totally disappears.

I'm having a problem with double twist Pro. I have a Note 2 running android 4.4.2. and XP SP3 on the desktop. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the latest versions of AirSync, doubleTwist Pro and the doubleTwist Desktop. I have run the SD Scanner app as per the kitkat SD card instructions.
The problem: Playlists created in iTunes are correctly appearing, with the songs and selected order in the doubleTwist desktop. However, when I sync the playlist to doubleTwist on my phone, some songs are removed from the play list. The songs in question are in the doubleTwist library and I can play the songs using the doubleTwist player.
I like doubletwist. It's the only music player that syncs my music properly. BUT it takes literally hours to sync, at least two. This is the case even if I'm only updating a single playlist. I'm using USB, not WiFi. Has anyone else had this issue and found a way to resolve it?
I own doubleTwist and AirSync. I have an app called Vonage Extensions to route my "land-line" VoIP calls to my Samsung Galaxy S5. When the Extensions apps is turned on by a incoming call, so does doubleTwist. It seems that somehow Vonage Extension makes doubleTwist start, and doubleTwist will play the song that was last played before it was shut down.
I need to know if someone out there is experiencing this. More importantly, whether doubleTwist has a setting that has it be the default mp3 player, as I think this might be the reason of the problem: Vonage uses the default ring to signal and incoming call, as the ring is an mp3, doubleTwist opens up to play the ring.
Thanks for the report. We haven't had any other users report this problem with the Vonage Extensions app but I will ask the QA/Dev team to investigate.
You can clear defaults by going into Android Settings and into the Application Manager. If you go into an app, there should should be a "Launch by default" section. Use "Clear defaults" to erase any defaults set.
We can also take a look at the logs to see if there is additional information.
1. Reproduce the problem. 2. Then immediately go into doubleTwist Settings. 3. Scroll down to select "Send Log Files" and tap "Continue". 4. Enter "DT Issue 20150227a" in the description text and tap "Send Logs" to email the logs to us.
I have a Samsung Tab 4 with 64gb of external storage that i synced my itunes library to with no problems. I uploaded about 55gb of music to it. However, when i open the app, it is very slow. After a brief period of time, i will get an error message that says "Doubletwist is not responding" so i can either "wait" for it to respond or "close". I waited to no avail. I closed DB and now i cant even get it to open to see my music anymore. Any idea's of what i can do? Google play music and samsung's music player work fine. Thanks.
Hello, I've had problems with double twist music information not showing up on external widgets and apps, such as ac display and zooper widgets, though soundcloud, Google play music will show info. I'm using a one plus cm11. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
It appears that AcDisplay doesn't work right on the Nexus 7 (2012) running 5.0.2 as I wasn't able to get it to display any wallpaper or controls while music was playing (with both our app and Google Play Music).
But I tried a few other devices (like a GS4 on 4.4.4) and was able to see the wallpaper and controls with both our app and Google Play Music. So this problem might be very device specific. I'll continue to test to see if I can determine any particular pattern.
Henry Thanks for the input. I realize that this is a DoubleTwist forum, not Itunes. That said, I've done a full delete and re-install of Itunes several times. Each time, Itunes has worked properly, that is until I try to sync through Doubletwist.
I've updated the registery as well, with the same outcome.
The issue is a bit outside my area of expertise,admittedly, and I have concerns that Apple support will say it's a Microsoft/DoubleTwist issue, Microsoft will say it's an Apple/DoubleTwist issue, and DoubleTwist will say it's an Apple/Microsoft issue.
No matter the outcome, I will be the loser, I'm afraid.
I'll keep you posted, but I've already been down the path with the solution you recommended, to no avail.
Recent Android devices only have USB MTP mode, which the Mac does not recognize without additional software. In addition, doubleTwist was not designed for USB MTP as it expects USB Mass Storage (MSC) mode.
We are working on additional wireless syncing solutions for the Mac but this will take some time.
In the meantime, you can use AirSync to sync with USB MTP only devices.
Here is a quick start guide to AirSync on the Mac:
