It was only a few weeks ago

when Nullsoft's Winamp exploded onto the Android market. And despite being in beta, we were quite surprised by how usable and polished it was. Its WiFi syncing alone is reason enough to have it installed on your Android phone, even if you use a different music player.

Fans of streaming radio will appreciate one of Winamp for Android's latest additions, as Nullsoft has focused on implementing support for

-- their proprietary internet radio software. Functionality may be limited, but this test build allows you to browse top stations, genres, and search terms. Users can stations to their favorites, and even browse recently listened-to stations.

"Yeah, but Jesse, I already use


for my internet radio. Why should I care about this?"

Well, I'll tell you why, dear pessimistic Android Central reader. As I type this,
there are 44,287 free SHOUTcast radio stations

, and Winamp can tune in to any of those, from anywhere in the world (so long as you're connected to the internet of course).

No ETA has been given as to when we'll see this update live in the market. [
