After Over 15 Years Of Service, Winamp Will Cease To Be Available For Download Starting December 20th

Winamp has been around since 1997, and though it has amassed a large and faithful following in the years since, the good times are coming to an end. The software will cease to be available come December 20th. Anyone who visits the download page is now greeted by a message warning that they better grab the goods while they're still available, because they won't be a month from now.

The page doesn't explicitly mention the Android version, and there isn't yet a warning on either the Play Store or the app's website.

Google Play Newsstand Is Live, Officially Combines Currents And Play Magazines

We've been hearing/seeing/talking about Newsstand for the past several weeks, and it's officially live as of now.

Amazon Appstore Client Finally Gets A Big Update From v5 to v7 – Includes New Design And Speed Improvements

Amazon's Android Appstore held great promise when it was announced, but the reality has often proven annoying to use. A big part of that was the terrible Appstore app that was used to install purchased content on a device. Today things are getting better in that department. The Amazon Appstore client has jumped from v5 to v7 and has gotten a complete UI overhaul in the process.

Pocket Updates To Version 5.0 With 'Highlights,' Enhanced User Experience

After its update to 5.0 on iOS about a week ago, Pocket has been upgraded for Android as well.
