Winamp Undergoes Identity Crisis, Releases Mac App

Mac users can now use Winamp, one of the oldest and most well-known music players. The application is currently in beta, and lacks some very basic and important features like shuffle, but it’s a good first step for users looking to replace iTunes with something that’s simply not iTunes. The primary pitch seems to be the ability to sync wirelessly with their Android application. Upon first launch, you’ll be greeted with the familiar ”Winamp, it really whips the llama’s ass”, so as a friendly heads up, keep an eye on your volume slider.


  • One-click music and playlist import from iTunes and Mac desktop
  • Keep Winamp updated automatically with Watch Folders and iTunes library sync
  • Wireless and wired sync with an Android phone, requires Winamp for Android
  • Play local files and playlists
  • Supports Mac OS X 10.6 and above
