    You will need Winamp for Windows installed on your PC along with the AjaxAMP Remote Control Plugin which you can download here:

    The official site for the AjaxAMP plugin is: Detailed instructions for installing and setting up both the AjaxAMP plugin and the Ampwifi android app are included in the Ampwifi app itself.

    Totally free, no annoying ads.
    Clean and quick interface designed for quick and easy access.

    Browse and edit Playlist.
    Browse your music library and add entire folders to your playlist. NOTE: The AjaxAMP plugin uses it’s own folder based media library system. The Winamp media library is NOT directly supported by Ampwifi.
    Search your music folders. Supports wildcards and voice input.
    Works over WiFi and mobile/cellular data networks.
    Can automatically detect your Windows PC running Winamp on your wireless LAN.
    Includes help documentation to get you up and running in minutes.
    Stream to device. Songs in your Winamp playlist or AjaxAMP's library can now be streamed to your device. Requires a music player app capable of playing streamed audio, such as Google Play Music.
    Download to device. Download songs from your Winamp PC to your Android device while Winamp continues to play music.
    Automatically stops music playback on Winamp when you receive a call on your Android phone.

    1. Network communication
    Full network access
    View network connections
    View Wi-Fi connections
    These are needed for what I think are obvious reasons. Ampwifi Winamp Remote is an app that works over Wi-Fi and cellular data networks. It needs full access to your Wi-Fi and cellular radios so that it can access Winamp which is running on a remote machine.

    2. Phone calls
    Read phone status and identity
    This permission is required to allow Ampwifi to stop or pause Winamp when you receive an incoming call on your phone. Ampwifi does nothing more than stop music playback when you receive a call, it does no data mining what so ever nor will it ever. That's a promise. On the plus side, this permission is meaningless on tablets or any device that doesn't accept calls over cellular networks.

    3. Storage
    Modify or delete the contents of your USB storage
    Ampwifi doesn't directly read or write to USB storage, however, this permission is required to use the Download Manager which is part of the Android operating system. The Download Manager is already pre-installed on all Android 2.2+ devices and can be accessed via the Downloads app.

    4. Affects battery
    Allow Wi-Fi Multicast reception
    Multicast reception is used when scanning for servers, which is how Ampwifi finds Winamp. Battery usage should be negligible.

    5. System tools
    Test access to protected storage
    This permission is required for the same reason the #3 Storage permission is required.

    Could only see long list of songs - no album or playlist view available Library view showed empty. Had to dig through troubleshooting to point to music directory and then figure out needed to reindex. Works OK now but during first run should ask to add additional music folders. I am a programmer and such "handholding" is necessary for user satisfaction.

    Works well. I'd like to see a way to scroll thru a playlist quicker. I'd also like an option to be able to select a song and asd it to the queue.

    So far works great! I'd love to see the addition of basic functions in a widget, notification/lock screen controls.

    I love this essential companion for Winamp. All features and no filler. With DrO makiing the community update pack "WACUP" we will be using this app for a long time. 1 request. Custom DL option so I can use extSdCard.
