I am thinking of creating a new Winamp for Android

Hello Llama community!

I was thinking of making a new Winamp app for Android.

When I see the old version of Winamp for Android, I am crying

I love so much Winamp and I ended up, thinking of creating a new Winamp for Android (Like WACUP)

Since I know: C#, Kotlin & Python, it might not be so hard. What do you think?

I want to know about the Copyrights (Branding, Modifications, etc)

What do you think?

Yes, I started creating and its name is UWAFA (Unofficial WinAmp For Android)

Some errors 'tho, but I finished the GUI in Figma.

It is hard 'tho since the source code is encrypted.

Post Some things that I want to add in UWAFA

~ Youtube support. I mean when music plays, UWAFA will search for video clips of the playing song. If it finds, it plays it.

~ Visualizer!!!! The album art will be replaced with a small junky visualizer, and it will be enabled also when the user does not want to play the video clip from YouTube

~MusicBrainz/Discogs Tag support, for mp3s, if the user wants to get updated tags for his mp3.

I hope things go as expected.

Sadly, the minimum Android version is 7.0 Nougat.

Winamp forever!!

Thumbs down -----------------Canceled-----------------

Since other players are in the market, and they perform better than UWAFA, and I am afraid of legal troubles, I decided to stop the project. I read some of the comments about UWAFA in Reddit.


If a mod sees that, I will appreciate, if you close this thread.

Thanks.
