Previously I already installed Winamp 1.0 for Android but since the SHOUTcast feature is not working for Android 2.1 device, I just remove it from my music player application for Android list. I just change with others music player apps such as power amp player and tune in. The both apps are good for me because I can play any music file and stream my favorite radio station to listen.
My Xperia X10 Android phone is still using stock ROM Android 2.1 Éclair. We need to wait and patient to get the update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Hopefully, when the Xperia X10 get the update to Android Gingerbread, there is no problem experiencing like happen to Motorola Droid X.
If you still want to give a try to the app, just download Winamp app for Android 2.1. Let us know your experience with the app by drop a comment below as your feedback.
