    "Waiting is The Hardest Part"

    June 22, 2012  |   By S1rst1nky

    Version: Winamp for Mac 0.7.1.86

    Pros

    Hey, it's a start. This is a beta in its infancy, and betas don't stay the same, they just keep getting better, so we can't really start comparing it to the Windows version...yet. Give it time and I think we'll see a major improvement: equalizer, skinning, video, etc., all the things we love about it.

    Cons

    Everything, but it's a beta, and Winamp is venturing into untested waters. Winamp for Android isn't really that great in my opinion, so putting it on a Mac (with less features) makes for a boring media player, sort of like iTunes.

    Summary

    I have to use a Mac for my job, and I really like it! However, I don't like iTunes, but I'm stuck with it. I love the Win. version of Winamp and have been using it for over 10 years. I was a little annoyed when I went looking for Winamp, found it for Mac, and downloaded it, thinking it was like the Windows version, but found out it isn't.

    The beta is, in a word, terrible. Other words that come to mind are bland, plain, utilitarian, and devoid
    of any kind of fun or entertaining features. It plays music and that's about it. No skins, equalizer, PL, video, media library, crossfade, themes, or anything. No options for upgrades or customizations.

    However, to be fair this is the fledgling release of a media player that was never intended or developed for the Mac OS. Macs had iTunes and people liked it so there was no reason to make a Mac version, until now. I think Winamp is on the right track with this, and I am looking forward to the latest updates to it.

    I don't think it will be long until we will start to see it developing into a player comparable in form and function to the Windows version The only hurdle is going to be the cross-platform adaptations for the skins. Nobody's really making skins for Winamp Mac, but (hopefully) that will change.

    For now it's hurry up and wait!

    "Abysmal compared to Windows version, but it exists!"

    Version: Winamp for Mac 0.7.1.86

    Pros

    I hope this is only a start, because there is no possible comparison against the original Windows version yet. But many of us were waiting for it for a long time, specially for the magnificent plug-ins and skins it has to offer. Hope they will include the whole package some day, cause just been an interface for Android is truly disappointing and a waste of downloading time and resources.

    Cons

    Come on, hurry up!

    Version: Winamp for Mac 0.7.1.86

    Pros

    Not iTunes, built for Android

    Cons

    No Visualization (yet) ... I want Milk Drop

    Summary

    I love my MAC, but I'm on an iTunes or iPhone fan. This will let me sync with my Galaxy S II with my 32Gb microSD
