Software maker doubleTwist recently made a new version of its smartphone syncing software available that provides a much improved way to browse through the Android Market from the desktop. The software lets users search for applications and see more information about each application such as description, screen shots, and reviews. Users can scan a bar code on the screen with their device to receive a link to the application to download, but apps cannot be downloaded directly from the Android Market via doubleTwist. DoubleTwist also lets users sync media such as music, videos. DoubleTwist plans to add over-the-air syncing later this year. The new software is available for Macs starting today, with a Windows version planned for release soon.

Mark my words

Android (Google) is positioning itself to take market share from Microsoft Windows as well. I guarantee they will in the near future they will have Computer OS' 😉
They're going for Netbook/ultraportable laptops. a full desktop OS is most likely in the works, but we'll see how long that takes.

In other news.. I find it amusing they are integrating flash into Chrome. I don't know what kinda fight went down ...

Seems backwards

Seems backward to release the Mac version first since Windows is the dominant computer system in the world.
The developers most likely have mac computers as their personal computers. DoubleTwist is a free app, so unless they get some investment, they'll prolly develop stuff for their home systems first,
