Winamp Comes to Mac, in early Sync Beta

AOL-Nullsoft launched Winamp for Mac Sync Beta, the first Winamp application for the Mac.  Nullsoft reports that many more features are coming soon and promises a "new long-term commitment to the Mac OS platform."

The number one goal for this first (beta) release is to provide a robust sync solution for Mac desktop and Android phone users leveraging our very popular and industry best Winamp for Android music manager. As a bonus, there are a good number of library playback and management features.

Winamp is designed to get you up and running quickly with one-click buttons to import your library from iTunes or from the Mac OS default music folder. If you select the "Keep Updated" option, Winamp will check for changes and add new tracks and playlists every time you restart the application. In the Preferences menu you can add specific folders to "watch" for music added to your Mac desktop, called "Watch Folders". Currently, Watch Folders are only supported on HFS formatted drives. Winamp also supports moving tracks and playlist from your phone to your Mac desktop and you can set the default transfer folder for that as well. All of these features make it really easy and powerful to keep your Winamp library in sync and up to date.

Winamp for Mac Sync provides a straightforward solution for syncing and transferring your music library to your phone. Connect your phone and your Mac desktop to the same WiFi network and you will see your device pop up under the "Devices" node in the nav (make sure you have enabled Wireless Sync in Winamp for Android). Click on the Device name and confirm the simple pairing request on your phone. You only need to do this once and then Winamp will always remember your device. You can set it up to sync your entire library or specific playlists.

Download Winamp for Mac Sync Beta. Sync and manage your iTunes library on your Android device seamlessly from your Mac.
