Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Innovative music inbox
Pro Familiar interface
TOMAHAWK uses a familiar panned interface that users have become accustomed to within other music players.
Pro Plays from online third-party sources
You can connect Tomahawk with Spotify, Google Play Music, Last.FM, YouTube, Soundcloud, and a lot of other online sources. This means you have instant access to virtually any song you could ever want - even remixes (especially on YouTube) from this one program.
Pro Beautiful Design
TOMAHAWK has one of the best modern design
Pro Useful UI for your collection
If you love sorting your music folders manually, Pragha allows for a solution with access to your media library "as is". This allows for custom sorting, such as when songs were released so you can easily jump between time periods
Pragha skips heavy features that slow it down, and the result is a very fast music player that always feels responsive even when handling large libraries.
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.
Con Very basic
By design, Pragha is a basic app without any 'bells and whistles' features. It's functional, but don't expect it to do anything over and above the minimal.
Con Collection needs to be re-updated after adding new music
Pragha is unable to automatically add new items to your music collection unless a re-scan of all files is done, even when only adding single files.
