We’ve been following the progress of Nullsoft’s Winamp for Android since the player hit beta last fall. Today the music player has reached its pivotal 1.0 release, now available in the Android Market.
Integration with Spinner now gives you a quick way to discover free music from within the app. Every day they’ll be a new collection of tracks to choose from, with no subscriptions or any other commitments required. You can either stream them live, or download the MP3s for playback later.
There are some small tweaks to the app’s UI, with a slightly-revamped home screen and improvements to the “now playing” display. You’ll get better access to tools for learning more about the artist you’re listening to, including links to current news. Also look for new swipe controls for track navigation. The app’s lock screen has been similarly updated to match the changes to the now-playing screen.
Add on a handful of other updates, like better language support, and integration with Android voice actions, and it looks like Nullsoft has come up with a pretty nice revision to wear the 1.0 crown.
