Yes it is and it's actually quite simple

  • Open DoubleTwist, you should see your Droid phone in the Devices section of the left panel
  • Then, under Playlists, click Playlists setup and check the Import iTunes Playlists option in the program's main window, finally click Import
  • Now, to get iTunes playlists to sync to Android smartphone, select your Android device under the Devices section and click on the Music tab in the program's main window
  • Check the "Sync music with this device" option
    Note: as you can see, you can either sync all iTunes playlists with Android Phone or sync selected iTunes playlists with Android Phone
  • Finally, click the Sync button in the lower-right corner and you're all set!
    All your iTunes music, playlists and other library data and files have been transferred to your Android telephone
