Winamp is almost as old as mp3’s themselves, great to see it has moved with the times and the app version has everything that was great with the original plus a whole lot more. I use it as default music player on my phone, it also gives the option for a widget to add to your homescreen. The music player is feature packed but easy to navigate. I found it easier than the system music player, while the widget keep controls simple and music information eg. title and album info to a minimum. Syncing is the huge plus with Winamp, it keeps multiple devices including your desktop and also iTunes up to date with your favorite songs.
