Most of you may have probably used, or at least heard of, Winamp at some point in your lives. This venerable Media Player was released by Justin Frankel in 1997, which became vastly popular in the coming years as digital music sharing was at its early stages. Actually, I believe it was the first software we ever relied on for playing music on a computer.
This week, Nullsoft unveiled the official release version Winamp for Android. In addition to high quality playback and persistent player controls, Winamp for Android offers a complete media management solution featuring wireless desktop sync (Winamp 5.6 required), iTunes library import, & access to thousands of internet radio stations with SHOUTcast.
