Yesterday Winamp was one of the best music players available for Google Android devices. Today it’s one of the best music apps and it offers free music downloads.
There’s also a new lock screen view which lets you control audio playback on your phone as soon as you hit the power button — no more swiping to unlock and then fumbling to get to the Winamp app.
The user interface has also been tweaked a bit, and Download Squad reports that wireless sync between your phone and a PC running the desktop version of Winamp is much more stable than in the latest version.
Other features that make Winamp special include:
- Integration with Google Voice Search, allowing you to search for songs or artists by talking into your phone’s mic
- List or cover art views for playlists
- Shoutcast integration, allowing you to stream talk or radio content from thousands of internet radio stations
- Optional auto-mounting of your SD card to make it easy to transfer files from a PC when your phone is plugged in
- Support for headset control
- Support for Last.fm scrobbling
Winamp 1.0 for Android is available as a free download from the Android Market.
