Winamp Beta for Android

While in more recent years iTunes has become the dominant player for some there has only been one music player of choice for well over a decade, Winamp. While not as lightweight as it used to be Winamp is the familiar, tried and tested option for many desktop users and now it’s going mobile.

Although still in the beta stages Winamp for Android is stable enough for everyday use. Despite lacking many of the features you’ll find it the desktop version Winamp for Android is still fully featured enough to meet the needs of most users. So it looks like those of you who were on the verge of selling your Android phone in favour of a more music friendly model now have a reason to stick with it.

Wireless syncing to the desktop version of Winamp is a nice addition and while there’s a long way to go things are looking good so far. Things can definitely be improved but it’s a great start and it’s probably worth the download just to hear the classic “It really whips the Llama’s ass” intro on your mobile.

If you’re interested and have a phone running Android 2.1 or above then head over to the Android Market and download the Winamp for android beta now.

After years of silence, it looks as though Essential are ready for a new chapter and it is going to be an attempt to shake up the industry once again. Recently, Andy Rubin took to Twitter to share a Project Gem phone that looks like nothing we've seen before. The form factor reminds us of remote control which we all have at home, but for it to have the capabilities of a phone is something new.
