Alternatives to Winamp for iPad with any license

  • VLC Media Player

    VLC is a free and open source cross-platform multimedia player and framework. Owned by the non-profit organization VideoLAN.

    • Winamp plays and organizes music. VLC just plays everything. It also doesn't support critical features like replaygain and tagging. teque5Jun 2016 • 26 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's only a media player. Not a software for album organizing. Guest • Oct 2017 • 11 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Saying VLC is an alternative for Winamp is like saying a hammer is an alternative for a swiss army knife. You can pound, pry, and cut with both, but that doesn't mean that you're going to be having a good time doing so. Guest • Nov 2017 • 5 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Does not allow playlists and other features essential in a music player. Fantastic at playing videos though. Guest • Apr 2017 • 14 agrees and 12 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Not nearly enough library / playlist / organization features as WinAmp Guest • Aug 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • VLC's media management capabilities is nowhere close to Winamp's Guest • Aug 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Winamp is a classic desktop library-based music player valued largely for its aesthetics and expansive skins library and visualization support. VLC is the opposite regarding UI and UX, being a ramshackle video 'Swiss Army Knife', skins being an afterthought that often break. It's like recommending FileZilla as a replacement for Vuze.

  • iTunes

    Media player, media library, Internet radio broadcaster, and iPhone device management application.

    • Winamp was a lightweight, customizable, and robust media player which supported multiple audio and formats - unlike iTunes. Guest • Oct 2017 • 6 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • iTunes is and always has been bloatware intended only for Mac users and/or Apple device support. No customization, limited functionality for media playback, and limited codec and format support. Windows users are better off sticking with Winamp or foobar2000. Guest • Nov 2015 • 6 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It works really well. The only alternative to iTunes that compares to it is VLC. rose64bitMay 2018 • 0 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
