CNET Editors' review
Since one of the most common uses for a smartphone is listening to music, many applications have been created for the purpose of playing and organizing music files. Winamp is one of the most popular of these for many reasons; it has been around for a long time and still delivers.
What mainly attracts users to Winamp is not necessarily this main application, which is free. In the $4.99 Winamp Pro version, you also get many upgrade features such as a graphic equalizer, podcast support, and Internet radio. The application loads quickly and immediately recognizes all music files located on the device. Album art is fully supported and you can create custom playlists. This media player displays music in several different ways depending on the customization of the playlist. Sound quality is really good and there is no skipping or freezing. The application itself is very stable and polished. It is well-designed and very intuitive, too. A dark background with bright high-contrast lettering is easy on the eyes and modern-looking.
Winamp functions well and also offers many great, high-value add-ons. Most people should have no problem using it and it can provide many hours of listening pleasure. Winamp is recommended for the audiophile or anyone who occasionally likes to listen to music on an Android device.

"I like it well enough. . ."
Version: Winamp 1.1.1
It works well on my Droid X2. I like the Public radio stations on it. I don't use it much for recorded music but when I do, it works very much like the apps on a PC. A lower learning curve and a high comfort level for use.
Like all Android apps it is easy to lock it up. Though I'm not sure that is WinAmp's fault. The radio stations don't always stream as smoothly as I would like. You need an unlimited data plan for this sort of app and stay close to a power source.
As reliable as android apps get (which means so-so compared to a PC). It allows me to listen to Public radio in modern buildings where reception is spotty at best. I"ve got a grandfathered ulmimited plan from Verizon so when it finally goes away, I may have to rethink this sort of app. Not perfect, but the best of the one I've tried.
