If you have been listening to music on the computer long before the Android platform came out, it is very likely that you are a Winamp Pro media player fan. That was the way how you listened to ripped MP3’s as there was no iTunes alternative.
Years passed and the mp3 player got replaced by the iPod and the iTunes replaced Winamp Pro as a media player. Soon after, other media players were released and the public had a lot of options to choose from. The only downside to iTunes is the fact that you must have an iPhone, in order to listen to your favorite tracks on your phone.
If you have an Android device and you were a Winamp Pro fan in the past, then it could be of great interest for you to find out that Nullsoft has released the Winamp Pro for Android in the Android Market. You can now use your own equalizer tweaks when listening to MP3’s on your Android smartphone as Winamp Pro for Android comes with all the bells and whistles, that are available on the PC.
Obviously, the Winamp Pro for Android version comes with a lot of new and interesting features, that are not available to use in the free version. Among these features we have to mention:
- a graphical 10 band equalizer;
- crossfade and gapless playback;
- the home screen can be customized;
- it supports FLAC playback when in Folder View;
- no more ads;
Among the most interesting features is the gapless playback and the fact that you will no longer have the ads pop-ing on the screen when you’re using the app. With the new Winamp Pro for Android version you can also stream audio podcasts.
You will not have to purchase the Winamp Pro for Android version without testing how it works because you can download and install the free version from the Android Market and then upgrade to the Pro version whenever you like. This move will cost you $4.99 for as long as you have the Google account. You will not have to purchase the app if you change your phone or install a custom ROM. This is a cool feature when we think that iOS apps do not offer a similar feature.
If you head on to the Android Market you will see for yourself how well has been recieved the Winamp Pro for Android version, given the fact that it already has a rating of 4.5 stars out of 5. In our opinion this rating well deserved by Winamp Pro for Android due to the fact that it is still one of the best media players in the world.
