Android music player doubleTwist has added a new feature called doubleTap which lets you send a song or video between two phones by tapping them together. In order for this to work you’ll need an Android phone with support for NFC (Near Field Communications) technology. Right now that pretty much means the Google Nexus S, but eventually more phones could be supported.

The update comes hot on the heels of a software update this week which added support for Apple’s AirPlay streaming protocol.

The doubleTwist app started out as an app for synchronizing your phone with iTunes playlists or other content on your desktop. But doubleTwist has come a long way in the last few years thanks to a series of updates which keep expanding the functionality of the mobile music player. You can now synchronize your media with a computer wirelessly, stream media to an Apple TV or other supported device, and quickly share songs with a friend.

The doubleTwist Player is available as a free download from the Android Market.
