doubleTwist Corporation was founded by Monique Farantzos and Jon Lech Johansen (aka DVD Jon) with the vision to create the media platform for the Internet of Things. We are backed by several prominent venture capital firms and individual investors. Our applications have been downloaded by more than 10 million users and every day, more than two million Android users experience their music, videos and other media through doubleTwist Player. doubleTwist has built a powerful ecosystem of media apps that are marketed directly to end-users in more than 150 countries or licensed & promoted by blue-chip partners such as Intel, T-Mobile and Qualcomm. doubleTwist has been recognized by Google as a Top Android developer, has received the Android Market's prestigious "Editor's choice award", was chosen by Newsweek as the "Number one Android app of 2011" and described by The New York Times as "The Cure for iTunes withdrawal". We have raised $10 million from a dream team of investors: Index Ventures (Skype, Last.fm), Northzone Ventures, Horizons Ventures (Facebook, Spotify, Siri), Alex Zubillaga (former Head of Digital at Warner Music), Michael Ovitz (former President of Disney) and Edward Jung (former Chief Software Architect at Microsoft and co-founder of Intellectual Ventures).
