DoubleTwist, the popular desktop syncing client and elegant phone music player app, has announced a plethora of fantastic stats, immediate updates and future plans for its software. First off, its mobile and desktop (Mac and PC) apps have been hugely successful as they are set to hit 500,000 and 1 million users, respectively, in September. You may be wondering why that second number is so much higher; this is because DoubleTwist also allows syncing with devices like the PSP and both Windows Mobile and BlackBerry phones.
A completely new and revamped website is intended to become "the iTunes.com of Android" and will be adding support for Amazon's MP3 Music Store "later in the fall" on top of its current podcast and Android app offerings. The site will also feature the ability to install apps to your phone directly from the website similar to AppBrain. In addition, users of the Mac and PC desktop clients get a new update that features faster syncing (finally!) and improved library management. To update, simply launch your DoubleTwist client and it should check automatically, or you can find the manual update button under File (Windows) or doubleTwist (Mac).
Finally, the Android app will be receiving a major update in September to allow use of FM Radio (if your phone already has this feature, one would assume) and the ability to sync over WiFi (!!!). [DoubleTwist]
