amaroK: Music App for Linux Reviewed

Filed under
Software

Over the past few years, I have heard a lot of noise about how great it would be to see KDE coming to Windows world. Despite this happening on its own, it really means little with the exception of perhaps one application - amaroK.

I have used a large number of jukebox applications on Windows and Linux, amaroK puts them all to shame. Today, I will talk about why amaroK is so beloved by its users and what it could bring into the Windows world with that port as well.

8 Reasons Why amaroK is Great.

Personally, there are just so many reasons why I love using amaroK:

1. Album covers. One thing I love about amaroK is being able to easily "fetch" missing album covers with a few clicks of the mouse.

2. Suggestive listening. Some might even say it is creepy, how good the use of "Music Brainz" is within amaroK, but I enjoy it. Discover new music you have never even heard of and the chances are you will like it a lot.

3. Tracking your music habit. Dynamic playlists based on your own personal trends, statistics on what your favorite bands, songs and genres are.
