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.
