Winamp Beta for Android Rocks

Winamp for Android is the best!

Today, when I saw that Winamp had released their beta Android app, I knew that it would be great and that I had to have it. I jumped on the market and discovered that there had only been around 1000 downloads so far. (5000 now)

1.19 mb is quite a bit smaller than I would have thought. I’ve noticed that some big name software developers think they can create huge apps with no repercussions. I think this is lame. Kudos to Winamp for keeping it small and still very functional.

Winamp looks good!

I can add tracks to a playlist …while I’m listening to them…without interruption. Individual tracks and entire albums can be deleted from the SD card, right from the Winamp interface.

Add playlist shortcuts and the widget player to the Android home screen. As well as enable playback control from the lock-screen.

My disappointment with Winamp.

I figured with the release of the Android app, integration with Linux would be available. I guess not. Here is the message that greeted me when I went to download Winamp for Ubuntu.

No matter. I’ll still use the Android app and continue hoping that more companies start to take Linux more seriously.
