Pro Beautiful Design

Con No ability for mass tag correction
In yarock, album covers can't be added to the files, meaning there's a lack of music fingerprint technology.
Con Lacks music fingerprinting ability
This application does not have any music fingerprinting abilities such as musicbrainz, which limits the apps usefulness.
Con UI may be confusing
First-time users may find the UI un-intuitive.
Con Cover songs show up in mixes
Amateur cover songs have a habbit of finding their way into mixes which means TOMAHAWK has trouble telling the difference.
Con Lacks some polish
While listening to music, the music area doesn't scroll along with the music. Also, some of the plugins are slow to respond and they each provide a slightly different experience with which information they show, and how they show it (there isn't a standard format).
Con Development seems to have stalled
This project's github readme.md states that the project is abandoned, although some people appear to be contributing still.
