Songbird music player comes to Android, looks a good 'un

Already a very popular open source music media manager/player on Windows and Mac, Songbird has now come to the Android platform.

The free app makes it easy to do all the usual music player stuff like browse collections, search songs etc., but adds on Facebook integration (you can ‘like’ songs you’re playing) and sports a unique ‘now playing’ drawer which offers quick access to album art and additional details.

It’s also possible to browse related Flickr images as the song is playing which is rather a novel touch.

We’re liking what we’ve seen so far and with the developers saying that a lock screen and “lots more” is coming soon, this could be the music player to watch!
