DoubleTwist is the triple threat. It is a freemium media manager which is designed to serve not only as of the unified music player and podcast manager but also syncs your iTunes media collection-including the Playlists, video, music, and photos between your desktop computer (both for Windows and Mac), and Android device.

You need to fork over $5 to unlock the AirSync and Airplay functions, though the purchase also unlocks the DLNA support, and the equalizer, album art search, and it removes podcast ads. DoubleTwist can stream the contents to any device which supports the AirPlay standard over the existing Wi-Fi network.

Allcast gladly beams the content from your mobile device to any number of streaming set-top boxes and dongles. It not only compatible with the Apple Tv and other AirPlay-enabled devices, but Allcast also offers DNLA support which allows communicating with the Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, One, Roku and  Xbox 360, WDTV, and the smattering of Samsung, Sony, and Sharp Smart TVs. Allcast can put all the content from the connected Google Drive and Dropbox accounts as well as from the local storage devices.

But, like DoubleTwist, the free version of Allcast is intentionally hamstrung-this time with the five-minute playback limit on the photos and video unless you spend $5 to upgrade.

If you would like to stream music, and don’t want to switch to the new music player (as the DoubleTwist requires), Allstream is the choice, which offers you with the both AirPlay and DNLA connectivity, this initially free app acts only as of the transmitter. That means you can keep using your selected music player-be it Spotify, Google Play Music, Radio or Tuneln to name a few- while gaining the ability to stream any existing Airport Express, Apple TV, Xbox 360, PS3, XBMC, or Samsung Smart TV.

The Allstream requires your mobile devices to be rooted to work and will cease to work after a predetermined time limit unless you pay 5 Euro or the cash equivalent of 5 Euro in your country to unlock the Allstream.
