SongBird for Android Sheds Beta Tag, Available as 1.0 in the Market

SongBird has been available for a month or so now on Android, but just this week, it dropped the “beta” tag and became officially official as version 1.0.  This is a fantastic music app.  It’s simple and “elegant”, but still includes all of the goodies you’d expect from someone trying to compete in the music app scene.  You get a simple yet polished widget, Flicker stream of artist images, search, and this handy “now playing” drawer.  This might not have Winamp’s llama or all of the neon lights featured in something like PowerAMP, but SongBird holds its own.  Classy keeps coming to mind.

If there is one negative, it’s the lack of a lockscreen widget.  They assure us all that it’s coming soon though.

    Songbird can bite me. I waited (and waited) and supported that application forever and then they dropped Linux support, and me along with it. Yet, they can manage an Android version.

        real linux heads use “unsupported” software all the time.

    I discovered it by accident back when it was still only on the Songbird website but ditched it b/c of how blah the widget looked (plus I’m not a fan of the colors)…and don’t think I’ll use it until they have a larger widget (or until someone mods it to be black or minimal.)

    The one feature that is really cool and I’ve only seen in the Meridian player is the ability to edit the metadata and the ID3 tags on songs. Too bad that this is not a standard feature on the rest of the players. Can PowerAmp do this?

      One of the main reasons I still use PlayerPro…big ol’ album art

      • Cchoncek

        +1 for PlayerPro. I’ve tried them all and this one keeps coming to the top. Combine it with iSyncr and it’s the best.

    I’ve used Songbird for PC off and on. It’s open source and has some basis in Firefox, with plug-in support. I wish there were more developers working on it. I’ll definitely try the Android version.

    How does this compare in quality to Music Mod? I am looking for lightweight and excellent audio quality.

    I’m always looking for a better music app. I’ll give this a shot, thanks.
