Banshee music player now works in Windows, supports Amazon MP3 downloads

A few moments ago, version 2 of the Banshee music player for Linux was released, bringing with it a whole slew of new features, and the addition of an official -- but alpha-quality -- Windows build. The Mac OS X build of version 2 is due later today. The most notable new feature is support for the Amazon MP3 store -- you can buy and download music from within Banshee -- but unfortunately it'...

Leaked Android Music app images and hands-on review

This morning, an updated version of the stock Android Music app was leaked along with a new version of Android Market. The new Music app, which is labeled 'version 3', is similar to the leaked build from December, but it has received a ton of polish -- and indeed, it looks almost ready for prime time. If you don't have Android 2.3 -- or don't want to root your phone to install the leaked Mus...

Songbird media player for Android exits beta, adds Facebook Like and scrobbling support

Less than two weeks after releasing the third beta of its Android app, Songbird has announced that it has now gone stable. Songbird 1.0 is available for download form the Android Market and it's packing plenty of slick features, like: Matching widget with album art Flickr photo-stream and Facebook 'Like' on the go! Playlist creation and editing Set track as your ringtone Scro...

Winamp sneak peek: Android app to bring UI updates, voice and genre search

Nullsoft, now with over 250,000 Winamp for Android downloads under its belt, is gearing up for a new release in March, and we've been lucky enough to get our hands on an early alpha build. You may want to leap straight into the gallery to look at the updated UI -- but if not, read on! [Disclaimer: Nullsoft and Download Squad are both owned by AOL.] The most obvious change is a completely-overha...

Tune Pop for Android lets you easily see what song is playing

Notifications on the Android platform a bit, er, awful. The notification bar at the top of the screen just simply doesn't cut it when it comes to displaying important information -- it's completely out of the way, and it garbles anything longer than a few words. Basically, it's only useful if you actively check -- let's see if I have any messages.. -- which isn't really the point of notifications...

Updated Android Music app leaks out

Thanks to an eager (and extremely active) developer community, early access to upcoming Android bits has become somewhat of a regular occurrence. Recently we've seen the Gingerbread launcher and updated Market app, and now a user at xda-developers has released an early version of what will become the next Music app for Android. It's still a bit rough around the edges, but it looks like it's go...

An early look at Winamp for Android's SHOUTcast integration

This morning, I was fortunate enough to get a sneak peek at an alpha version of Winamp for Android. The beta version currently available from the Android Market is already a lot better than other media players, but judging by what I've seen today, it's going to get even better. For this alpha build, Nullsoft has focused on SHOUTcast integration. The implementation is still a little rough around...

Foobar breaks free of world's longest development cycle and reaches V1.0

This is just a small note to say Foobar 1.0 has reached the end of its Beta testing and is now a full-fledged V1.0 release! As suspected, very little changed between Beta and Release. There isn't much else to add that I didn't cover in the previous article. Foobar is a music player. That's basically all it does. It touts a customizable UI, but I don't know many people that bother with that. Th...

Foobar2000 v1.0 Beta -- holy crap, it's finally here!

Believe it or not, almost 7 years after its initial release, the Foobar2000 v1.0 Beta is finally out, and with it comes a large list of changes. Most of them are much-needed interface fixes, but there is the welcome addition of built-in support for the streaming of Windows Media formats (ASX/MMS/RTSP). Other than that, it's much of the same. Foobar2000, if you were wondering, is a very light-we...

TubeRadio.fm turns YouTube into a powerful music player

Using YouTube to listen to music is nothing new. Search for a song you want to hear, and you're very likely to find it, even if there's no official music video. YouTube isn't built to listen to music though, and that's where TubeRadio.fm comes in. It's a slick music player that lets you create playlists from YouTube, and can even find entire albums at once, using track listings and album art from...

Mixwit - Make your mix tapes online

Remember when you put together mix tapes on cassettes and lovingly wrote the song titles in microscopic script on the tape label, maybe even including artistic doodles? Remember the recorded intro you did for the recipient? Remember the songs you selected? Each one chosen for its particular meaning - a special code for you and the receiver's relationship. Yeah, we don't remember that sappy stuff...

Tech preview of Amarok 2 released: Codename "Kutie"

Amarok has just released a preview of its new version 2, codenamed "Kutie." In case you didn't know, Amarok is the free music player for Linux and Unix, with support for album art, lyrics, and Wikipedia and last.fm integration. A word of warning: this is a very early release and a technical preview only (it's called a pre-alpha release; if you've ever wondered what came before alpha, this is your...

Free music players for Windows Mobile - Mobile Minute

The other day we told you about WinVibe, a new free music player for Windows Mobile devices. I started off thinking I was going to write a roundup of all the other music players for this week's Mobile Minute. But after thinking about it for a while, it occurred to me that there are just so many great free programs available that there's almost no reason to pay for music software. That said, if y...
