Winamp 1.1 for Android

When AOL introduced Winamp 1.0 for Android a few months ago one of the main selling points for the music player was the fact that you could stream or download free songs from Spinner using the app. This week Winamp 1.1 hit the Android Market, and it brings even more free music. You can listen to full length CDs from AOL’s Full CD Listening Party site.

Unfortunately the Party is online only. You can stream music but you won’t be able to download tracks.

There are currently 25 full length albums including music from Sam Phillips, Depeche Mode, David Bowie, Dean Martin, and Simply Red. Every week the list of albums will change.

Other changes in Winamp 1.1 for Android include support for additional languages and SHOUTcast support for Android 2.1. Previously the internet radio streaming service only supported Android 2.2 and up.

Winamp also has a number of features which help set it apart from the default Android Music player including the ability to synchronize your music with the desktop version of Winamp over a wireless network and support for Last.fm scrobbling.

Winamp 1.1 is available as a free download from the Android Market.
