I don’t know about you, but the cute short black birdie with the DJ headphones makes me smile every time.
I am excited that there is a new Android app, which you can get from Songbird or the Android Marketplace.
Songbird has had a desktop client for a some years now that made listening to music on the internet an easier feat.
It was made to look a bit like Itunes and Firefox – sort of like the kid they would have.
As a result, we have this really cute black bird and a super sweet media player.
Right now, it is simple, sleek, and sexy.
Oh, and its completely free!
I’m excited to see where this app goes in the future. I hope to see more music browser functionality like its desktop version in the future.
That will make Android’s songbird truly stand out among the rest of the media players on the market.
Maybe Songbird’s attempt to make a stellar Linux media player that has since been discontinued laid the foundation for this very promising Android app.
What are you waiting for? Check it out!
