The folks at doubleTwist have been providing tools for synchronizing an Android phone with Apple’s iTunes software for ages. Now they’ve upped their game though, adding support for Apple’s AirPlay music streaming protocol.

That means you can now stream music, video, and photos from an Android phone to an Apple TV or other supported hardware. In order to do that you’ll need to download the free doubleTwist player from the Android Market and the $4.99 AirSync add-on.

DoubleTwist 1.4 for Android also supports streaming media to DLNA devices on your home network. There’s also beta support for Sonos hardware.

The folks at Engadget note that Twonky Mobile also offers a free app for streaming media from an Android device to an Apple TV or other devices that support UPnP or DLNA. But Twonky Mobile doesn’t sync with iTunes… if that sort of thing matters to you.
