    I can't find Winamp on Google Play any more. There's a link to Play on Winamp ? It really whips the llama's ass! ...but it now shows as not found. Does anyone know what happened to it? Winamp was often a recommended player as an alternative the default ones.

    I was looking on the US Play store, wasn't there. I done a bit more digging myself, looks like it's changing ownership or may even be discontinued.

    Can find the APK here anyway.

    ah...maybe it's only working for me since I've previously downloaded it, but it still takes me to the app on the play store and allows me to download it.

    Only thing I'm finding is now that some of the additional functionality, like the graphic eq, album art, additional info, are just giving a message saying "Service is unavailable, try again later.". I'm guessing they've pulled the plug on whatever back-end server that gives full functionality.
