    Just downloaded it. I like it. Seems to be the best player yet. Now playing album view has a pulldown so you can see the current playlist or back to the main menu. Sync support with winamp on desktop. I haven't tried it. I do use Winamp. Before I dumped iTunes I never used syncing either.

    Please don't cross post.

    This thread will remain open, the other has been removed.

    .... and merged the 1st of 3 identical threads into this one.

    One thread will suffice :)

    Thank you for posting this however!

    I only posted it once. I maybe cause i hit the back button a couple of times. Sorry.

    Just connected my winamp through wifi. currently transfering new music to my phone over wifi. Works just like when you normally hook up devices with usb. About 10-15 secs per song to transfer.

    So far it works good for me. I like the larger widget and the sync seems to work fine. 'bout time winamp came ut with an app. And since it's beta, it can only get better (I hope).

    Winamp Android Beta music player available in Market!

    So I was browsing the Market for a reasonable music player to sync my music from my computer to my phone and I stumbled across something that made my day. Winamp (remember using that before iTunes forced their way into our lives?) has come out with an Android based music player for your mobile devices!

    Want to know what is the bees knees about this? Download the Winamp player for your computer, and you can have easy one click Auto-Syncing of your music to your phone. Will sync everything as you have it set up on your computer.


    However, the main drawback (as you can imagine) is that this player is just piggy-backing off the stock Android music player, so all the music gets dumped to your root folder. Also, this means all your music gets put on your internal SD card instead of the removable SD card, so for most of us Droid users, you can't reasonably sync more than 50-100 songs without using up all your memory. However, the Nullsoft developers are aware and are looking into it. Kinda sucks if you have a 16GB removable memory card and can't put even one song on it, but what can you do.

    You know whats funny... I did a search and I never saw this original thread. Never would have posted that if I knew it was there. My bad.

    Even still... Good player. Just wish it were to copy to the removable SD card instead of the internal memory. Seems like a complete waste.

    I too like the option of moving an application to the SD card as the D1 (which I have) only has 260mb or so.... but I think it's a good app. It's replaced the stock for me

    Yeah, I mean, I have close to 1,700 songs on my desktop Winamp, and can only put about 50 on my phone before I start really taking up too much memory. I have a 16GB removable memory card and could EASILY put my entire music library on there as well as a couple movies, but thats not what Android has allowed. Why? I am still wondering that, myself.

    Ive been using winamp to sync my library for a while now, and was wondering why they hadent made an app yet; until this came out! love the widget, and the history option! seems like a solid app. Also i am one of those people that uses my phone to play music in my car, and i commute an hour to school a few days a week so ive tested most of the music apps out there, lets see how this one sizes up to the rest!

    You know what... Now that I look into it, I think I was wrong about the way this app stores music. It looks like it dumps everything to the root of your removable SD card. Dumps it and creates one folder per artist. Now, that is a bit annoying and I pray to God that Winamp changes that soon to create their own folder on the SD card and go from there, but it seems like it should work. So yeah, thats good, right?

    Going to switch everything over to my 16GB SD Card (using the stock 4GB one now) and see how many songs I can get. Hopefully, it works.
