Since iTunes has no way to sync with my Motorola Droid, and all of my music is on my Macbook Pro, I recently tried out DoubleTwist. It detected my Droid right away.

The problem is that when I chose to sync all of my music, DoubleTwist also synced all of my podcasts, which quickly filled up my sd card with stuff I don't want on there. Is there a way to have it only sync my iTunes music library and ignore podcasts?

Judging by the screenshots, doubleTwist allows syncing specific playlists and has smart playlists.

Create a smart playlist that would contain all your library but not podcasts (excluding genre Podcast), and sync it.

I'm not able to find an option for creating a 'smart' playlist. I'm assuming this would be what I would need as it would automatically include newly added music, but the file menu only allows creation of 'dumb' playlists. – Robert S Ciaccio Aug 17 '10 at 20:33
well they added smart playlists, but this app is such a steaming pile of crap that it's not worth going through the trouble. Not sure why they had to make a whole app for what I can already do directly on my phone (download apps, purchase amazon mp3's), or in finder (copy music to my sd card). – Robert S Ciaccio Sep 22 '10 at 7:20
