Android phone and tablet users are probably aware that while the stock Android music player is a pretty good app, it lacks some advanced features that other third-party music player apps have. One of these apps is DoubleTwist which incidentally has just been updated. The update brings in several new features that will make you love the Android app even more, particularly for all of you who listen and subscribes to podcasts. Available as an in-app upgrade, the app now allows podcast subscription over-the-air. For existing DoubleTwist users, the upgrade will cost you $4.99 but it will come with extra features such as AirPlay support, and wireless media synchronization from your PC or Mac as well as other functionality.  When subscribing to a podcast, the app pulls down the latest episode using your Android device’s connection. If you worry about incurring data cost, you can set the app to download podcast episodes only through Wi-Fi. Other new features of the updated DoubleTwist app include -expandable/collapsable Now Playing screen with easier access to Up Next queue, design and interface updates specifically for Android 4.0 users, and fixed AirPlay and AirTwist playback issues.
