    I've been using Doubletwist for a couple of months. I manage my music library out of iTunes. I create playlists there and import them into my Samsung Fascinate through Doubletwist desktop application (slow but effective).

    Anyway, I downloaded Poweramp and plan to buy it, mostly because the equalizer setting create a much better sound than I've heard on other players.

    I can't find my playlists though. Does anyone know a} how to find them or b) how to get my itunes playlists into Poweramp.

    I too am interested in how to get iTunes music into PowerAmp! I'm about jump into the Android world, and while getting music into my phone won't be a deal-breaker for me, it'll be a nice perk.

    As as much as I dislike the bloated iTunes (when the heck is Google going to introduce a browser based - LaLa like - music store already?), it's the only music program I have right now on my PC. So it'll be nice to be able to integrate it as seamlessly as possible into my next Android phone (Thunderbolt?).

    I don't use Doubletwist but in the Settings for PowerAMP you can select the Music Folders to be scanned. If Doubletwist is sending the iTunes playlist to your device, you should be able to select the folder from that Music Folders setting and it would then show up in PowerAMP.

    If Doubletwist doesn't support sending of those playlist, I know for sure iSyncr does. That's how I get my iTunes playlists over to my device and PowerAMP has no problem recognizing and/or playing those playlists.

    Thanks for the help, but I ended up finding them. Poweramp is able to see the playlists I imported, it just took me forever to find them. Then it took me a long time to figure out how to make them shuffle.

    Poweramp really needs to make their interface more intuitive. I'm pretty good with stuff like this usually and I was mystified for over a week just trying to find my playlists and get them to shuffle.

    I've just found out how to do it.
    In PowerAmp open the settings from the soft key (bottom left)
    Select Folders & Library
    Playlists Import / Export
    Import Systems Library Playlist

    They then show up, although they look quite ugly as they all have 'import' written infront of them, but better than nothing!

    iSyncr and PowerAmp works for me for getting iTunes playlists in.

    It didn't work for me. I exported my iTunes playlists and paste them into the muusic folder. Then I tried to import them to poweramp but no list was imported.

    This is what I did I go to settings, then music and folders, click on music folders and select the directory that your music is in, after that rescan and they should just show up

    This method works for me:

    In iTunes, open a playlist then go to FILE > LIBRARY > EXPORT PLAYLIST.

    Select "m3u" as the file type and save.

    COPY the m3u file to your phone. I store it in my root music folder.

    Open Poweramp and RESCAN.

    Your playlists will appear and say "not loaded yet" underneath. Open the playlist and the tracks should then load.

    I assume this works successfully because my music is organised in the same folder structure on both my computer and my phone.
