doubleTwist Corporation was founded in Oslo, Norway by Monique Farantzos and Jon Lech Johansen (aka DVD Jon) and is headquartered in San Francisco. We are backed by several prominent venture capital firms and individual investors.
Every day, more than a million people around the world use doubleTwist to listen to and enjoy their music, podcasts and videos on their Android devices.
The doubleTwist team is distributed between San Francisco and Tokyo, and consists of people from eight countries, speaking more than seven different languages, from Japanese to Dutch. We collectively own more than 200 gadgets and obsessively test them with doubleTwist to make sure you can listen to your MP3s, watch videos or stream to your Xbox, PS3, Sonos and Apple TV.
Why we’re here
We started doubleTwist because we were disappointed by the quality of software applications offered by the major device manufacturers.
Our vision is simple: to create a unifying media platform that enables consumers to organize and enjoy their music, photos and videos across all their home devices.
We feel that just like you don’t use a different browser for every web site you visit (Firefox to read the NY Times, IE to stream Hulu, Chrome to browse YouTube, etc) you shouldn’t have to use iTunes for Apple products, Nokia software for Nokia phones, Sony software for Sony products, etc. The typical household today has many such devices and there is a need for a simple and powerful software that connects them.
