Just released beta version of Winamp for android.
Winamp for Android: Now in Beta - Winamp Blog

Winamp, the Ultimate Media Player, is now available in beta on AndroidTM (Android 2.1 OS and above).

In addition to high quality playback and persistent player controls, Winamp for Android offers wireless desktop sync with your Winamp desktop application (Winamp 5.59 beta required). Standard USB syncing also available.

Just found it in the market and was gonna make a post about it here. After fooling around with the app on my phone, I have to say it's pretty impressive for a first release. This is the first music app that I've seen that has basic UI elements well implemented. Definitely replacing Doubletwist on my phone.

Just connected my winamp through wifi. currently transfering new music to my phone over wifi. Works just like when you normally hook up devices with usb. About 10-15 secs per song to transfer.

I can't seem to figure out where to go in Winamp to sync via Wifi. I've checked all through the menus, and I'm not seeing anything. Running the latest version of Winamp too. Any help?

Pretty good but I'd still like to see the add/remove button for songs.
i.e closer to the vintage winamp <3.0 look

My only issue with WinAmp (for the pc) is that even though I have a pro license, it always crashes after exactly 5 hours of use. Doesn't matter what I'm doing. Hopefully the android app is a little better.

Yea i was wondering the same thing! I'm just going through all the options on the beta desktop app to see if there are any clues there!
