DoubleTwist serves media from Android devices to Xbox 360, PS3 (and more?)

DoubleTwist has long been the choice of many an Android user when it comes to getting iTunes media from a computer to their Android-powered device. Called AirSync, the app allowed wireless syncing and streaming of music, videos and photos. According to TNW though, it's got a new trick up its sleeve. With an update to AirSync, DoubleTwist has turned the humble Android phone into a powerful DLNA server.

What this means in reality is that any Android device running AirSync can wireless stream content straight from its internal memory to a waiting Xbox 360 or Playstation 3. In theory it should be able to send audio, video and photos to any DLNA-enabled device, including the Google TV. With many new televisions now supporting DLNA, not to mention Blu-Ray players and other set-top boxes the chances are you have at least one such device under your TV right now!

DoubleTwist's AirSync is available now in the Android Market and is priced at $4.99. It is perhaps worth nothing though that Skifta is a free (beta) app, that is also on the Android Market that does a very similar thing to AirSync. While we've not used Skifta ourselves, the app has been receiving some very polarized reviews on the Market, though for free it's got to be worth at least giving a shot.

You pays your money, you takes your choice.
