"The well-known, truly and reliable Winamp now in your Android"

Reviewed by / May 30, 2011

Winamp is a media player which has achieved a considerable succes for Windows-based PC’s for years and now lands on Android

We have given it a try and we are going to remark some of its features. First, Winamp for Android runs into a good-looking sober interface similar to the classic PC version. It’s good to have always at sight the control reproduction bar buttons, while we move from one window to another. Another remarkable feature is the sync between the PC version and your Android by Wi-Fi or USB, that will allow you download your playlists easily.

The desktop widget (even it is a large one, 4x2), it’s at the same time useful and cool: over a kind interface, it includes an option to set the control reproduction bar in the lockscreen of the phone. Moreover, if you hold down the song while playing, it will show up a list with all the searching apps of your Android (Youtube, Google, Pandora...) which is really useful if you want to watch the video-clip or check the lyrics. It’s a pity that it doesn’t have any equalizer or sound-configuration features.

Winamp has been developed by Nullsoft, Inc. a software house founded in 1997 by Justin Frankel, focused on the developing of media player software. Its most known products are ShoutCast MP3 streaming and Winamp.

No matter if you are already a Winamp user or not, you will be more than pleased with Winamp for Android. Due to its interface and performance and its ease of use, it deserves its four stars. If it would have an equalizer and some extra sound-configuration features, it will get the fifth.

    Not working to control my earphones (skip/pause tracks) with ICS in Galaxy SII. Nor the original phones provided or my sony MW600 bluetooth. With the standard player provided in ICS I have no problem.

    Why can't I use the lock screen controls anymore now that I have the Samsung Galaxy S5? I miss the feature.
