Two services – Winamp and DoubleTwist – have launched wireless music syncing applications for Android. It’s significant, because it’s one of the few music features where Android now scores over iPhone, which still has to be connected to a PC with a cable to sync songs across. The Winamp for Android app had been downloaded by more than 500,000 people in its beta, although the wireless sync feature was added in an update yesterday. Winamp’s parent company AOL is positioning the app as ‘the best music management app for Android’. However, DoubleTwist has also updated its Android music app with a wireless sync feature called AirSync, which works for music but also movies and photos. Both apps are being hailed as potential ‘iTunes for Android’ solutions, which may be optimistic given the looming launch of Google’s own music offering, complete with cable-less syncing and cloud streaming.
