New offering titled AirSync
DoubleTwist has released an upgrade to its Android app, which is now capable of wirelessly syncing content with a computer. The new feature, labeled AirSync, allows an Android device to connect directly with the DoubleTwist desktop client to transfer files such as music, photos and videos over a local Wi-Fi network.
The system is designed to automatically start and stop sync functions as the user moves in an out of Wi-Fi range. The desktop software is also available for Mac and Windows computers, although the photo sync is currently limited to the Windows edition.
The AirSync upgrade is now available from the Android Market with a promotional price of $1, before the price jumps to $5 after the first 10,000 downloads. Users must also download the free DoubleTwist Player, which is also available from the Android Market. [via TechCrunch]
