Winamp for Windows absolutely (still) has type of a steep knowing curve, specifically by today’s standards. Importing your collection from a folder is simple. And so is setting up playlists as well as playing tunes. However you’ll find yourself digging in a lot of various food selections to identify how to obtain various other things to work. Every little component has its very own set of File/View/Help food selections. It’s not as easy as maybe.

And if you take place to get lost on something, what help you’ll be able to find is frequently woefully outdated. I was attempting to attach my glossy new Nexus 5 (complete with Winamp app) to the sucker, and when I sought out the help page, the “supported tool” checklist consist of classics like:

– Innovative Nomad/Jukebox (Zen Micro, MuVo, Neeon & Vision, etc.).
– Microsoft ActiveSync (WindowsMobile Smartphone & Pocket PC).

Once you get your feet under you, you’ll discover that Winamp is still an extremely capable program. A program that’s as durable as– otherwise greater than– something like iTunes. Syncing over Wi-Fi? Certain. Built-in internet radio? You betcha (Shoutcast!). CD tearing? Of course. Various other diverse plug-ins for absurdly details uses? Some twenty years worth of them. And afterwards there are the visualizations: still built-in, still dope.
