I have some bad news. Word is that Grooveshark will triple the price of its VIP service today. That’s crappy. I recently took some good advice and started using Grooveshark on my Android. It’s not perfect — the app constantly crashes, the media player will randomly decide not to play music at times, it hates loading when there’s no signal even though there’s offline playback, etc. — but for $3 I could stomach it. Now it’s going to be $9, which puts it on par with Napster and Rhapsody. In other words, bye bye Grooveshark. But before I go with another paid streaming music service, I want to see what I can do with streaming my music library to my device. A few friends recommended apps, and I’ll go over those in the coming days. But today I’m taking another look at doubleTwist, which just released a wireless sync option. Unfortunately, the service is not free. We’ve grown so used to free stuff with Android that it’s sometimes tough to accept it when a formerly free application all the sudden costs money. At least with doubleTwist we’re getting added functionality. To start the process, you’ll want to hit the Market. You can download doubleTwist at the following QR code. You also have to download the update to the desktop software, which you can get at doubleTwist’s website.
