Winamp Is Back With Powerful Android Media Player

via Mashable! by Blake Robinson on 11/30/10


One of the greatest setbacks of the Android platform has been the absence of a killer media player, as its native media player is simply lacking. To date, DoubleTwist has been the best option, but Winamp for Android is a powerful new alternative.

Before the turn of the century (a.k.a. the Wild West of file sharing), Winamp reigned supreme for MP3 playback on Windows. Now I haven’t used a Winamp product since I learned about foobar2000 back in 2002, but it’s often nice to see the resurgence of a familiar face in tech.

Despite all its fancy features, Winamp is a winner because it’s just a very solid audio player. This isn’t to say that the features aren’t nice. Winamp for Android supports wireless desktop syncing (via Winamp 5.6 for PC), so you can simply beam tracks to your device over Wi-Fi. It also has Last.fm scrobbling support and particularly good play queue management.

But don’t take my word for it, check out the free download yourself by scanning the QR code below:
