Boring, no?

Winamp's main dashboard is dark and uninspiring.

Shoutcast streaming radio

Winamp offers access to Shoutcast streaming radio, which can be a nice alternative to your locally stored music collection.

Now playing

This screen shows you what's playing now. The album art is tiny and for some reason the timeline bar takes up half of the screen.

Better in portrait

In portrait mode, album art (if available) bleeds to the edge of the screen, which is a lot more attractive than the tiny thumbnail that shows up in landscape.
