It’s very likely that you’ve heard of Winamp: an immensely popular music player that was released by Justin Frankel for Windows in 1997. It was one of the first great MP3 players, and I’ve used it faithfully ever since it came out.

In October 2010, almost discreetly, Winamp released an official Android app in the Market – and it was good. In fact, it quickly became my music player of choice for Android as well as Windows. The developers have done an excellent job with the UI in particular, which is slick, intuitive, fluid and fun to use. Another great music player that people seem to enjoy is PowerAmp, but I’m sticking with Winamp.
