Last November AOL announced they were going to shutdown Winamp in December. 1 month notice to shutdown, not sell. AOL has yet to provide a reason(s) why. Anyway, Radionomy stepped up and offered to buy it. There was no time for a smooth, seamless transition. As a 15 year Winamp user, I'm happy it has survived and can wait a few months for it to get back to normal or even better than it was.

As you are finding out, there is no other app like Winamp or even close. I think it will be worth the wait. That said, I've heard that MediaMonkey's tagging feature is not too bad.
