Permissions:
1. Network communication
▪ Full network access
▪ View network connections
▪ View Wi-Fi connections
These are needed for what I think are obvious reasons. Ampwifi Winamp Remote is an app that works over Wi-Fi and cellular data networks. It needs full access to your Wi-Fi and cellular radios so that it can access Winamp® which is running on a remote machine.

2. Phone calls
▪ Read phone status and identity
This permission is required to allow Ampwifi to stop or pause Winamp® when you receive an incoming call on your phone. Ampwifi does nothing more than stop music playback when you receive a call, it does no data mining what so ever nor will it ever. That's a promise. On the plus side, this permission is meaningless on tablets or any device that doesn't accept calls over cellular networks.

3. Storage
▪ Modify or delete the contents of your USB storage
Ampwifi doesn't directly read or write to USB storage, however, this permission is required to use the Download Manager which is part of the Android operating system. The Download Manager is already pre-installed on all Android 2.2+ devices and can be accessed via the Downloads app.

4. Affects battery
▪ Allow Wi-Fi Multicast reception
Multicast reception is only used when scanning for servers, which is how Ampwifi finds Winamp®. If you look at the battery usage on your device Ampwifi should not be a major consumer.

5. System tools
▪ Test access to protected storage
This permission is required for the same reason the #3 Storage permission is required.

Doesn't do anything but display the welcome screen ... Okay I finally got it working. The instructions are quite vague. It's kind of pointless though since it doesn't do anything anyways. I'm playing a station from shoutcast and I'm not able to control the station or find other stations to play using this app. What's the point of the app? I'm better off using gmote. At least I can control my computer with gmote.

Pretty good. I like that the server is an add on within winamp rather than a completely separate program. It is easy to use, but one thing I would like to see in an update would be the ability to use winamp's queue function when long pressing a song name. Also, it works well on my tablet, but on an ace ii x its constant refreshing is extremely annoying (I did not take off a star for that, though, because the ace ii x is usually pretty annoying anyways)

Do not use. Did not load, did not play. Runs like crap, did not load and did not play. At all. Not a part of Winamp or a control device at all. Do not Use.
