nice idea, but hated it

Pros: works with a lot of products & devices
Cons: It mimics iTunes way too much, Runs a couple of services just like iTunes - a "helper service" and transcoding service - both of which sit there doing nothing most of the time but using about 25mb ram
Application. nice - very itunes like, but without many of the features of iTunes - smart playlists etc. On startup the main app was using 145mb of ram, increasing to over 200mb when scanning my music library.
Failed to find most of my artwork, despite most of my media have both a folder.jpg and the album art embedded in the file itself.
Some strange search behaviour where I'd select an artist, it would only show me 1 album, and then only 1 or 2 tracks inside the album.

There are a lot of these media managers and players and I don't know about his one, but I'm sick of them piggybacking on either ITunes or Windows media player because it means either of those are essential installs that you will never ever use directly if you use another media app.

In the end, I uinstalled doubletwist (left lots of file behind after uninstall)

I wouldn't use it again until they sort out the memory issues - a lot of people are still running 1Gb ram in xp or 2gb in Vista - having an single app using such a large chunk just to play music/videos is a little over the top in my opinion.
Goog but not good enough just yet
