Winamp for Android really whips the llama’s ass

Dude, is this amazing or what?!? Winamp, which many consider to be the ultimate media player, is now available for Android smartphones.

Yes, this sweet beta version of the timeless Windows classic offers a complete media management platform by seamlessly syncing (wirelessly) with the Winamp desktop library.

Of course, standard USB syncing is also available.

Additional features include:

  • Persistent Player Controls – Quickly pause, change tracks, manage your play queue, see what’s playing and access the Winamp home screen.

  • Play Queue Management – A temporary track listing that allows you to easily select and sort tracks. And if you like, save it as a playlist.
  • Widget Players & Shortcuts – Add playlist shortcuts and the widget player to the Android home screen, while enabling playback control from the lock-screen.
  • Now Playing – Displays song info, album art and more. Press and hold on the song info to interact with other apps like Pandora, YouTube and the Amazon MP3 Store.
  • Scrobbling – Supports scrobbling with the app installed (on your Android device). Captures all of your mobile listening history in real time.
