Songbird for Android Frees Your Music [VIDEO]

Android has come a long way since the G1, but the stock music app has not. Many people rely on their phone as their main source for audio consumption and like to be greeted with a sleek, good looking UI. Thats where Songbird comes in. Songbird provides a very clean deep purple look and provides lots of great features. Songbird just recently came out of beta and is now at version 1.0.

Songbird has been around as a free and open media player for Windows and Mac desktop computers since 2006. The Android version has been in beta just since February.

Listed below are Songbird for Android’s features:

  • Clean and clear UI with unique “now playing” drawer
  • Matching widget with album art
  • Flickr photo-stream and Facebook “Like” on the go
  • Playlist creation and editing
  • Set track as ringtone
  • Headset support (wired and Bluetooth)
  • Audioscrobbler support
  • Simple and full-featured search, browse and playback controls.

This application may only be in version 1.0, but it already offers all the features of the built in music app and then some. And even better, it’s free. Watch the video below to see the app in action.

    I nice little free alternative. Doesn’t beat PowerAmp, but the price is right.

      I uninstalled PowerAmp after downloading and using Songbird. I prefer the UI of songbird. PowerAmp feels too much like a desktop interface, click this button, this button, that button, and now you’re where you want to go.

      Songbird has been constantly updating, and they have some promising features on the horizon. Lock screen widget anyone? Have to love the Mozilla compmunity and everything they offer.

    Was it my imagination, or was the O/S overlay a WM7 look-alike?
