Tomahawk was born out of frustration... frustration that the most widely used media players were designed to solve problems of a different era. No longer do users need desktop music players built 10 years ago that jam in CD ripping, label makers, device syncing, into a massive wad of code that takes minutes to even launch.
Freed from the shackles of having to worry about supporting legacy use cases, users can are able to focus on solving a new set of problems and capitalizing on a new set of opportunities.
Developers considered there had to be a better way to get all these and Tomahawk was created.
Here are some key features of "Tomahawk":
· Stop chasing your music across different machines, services and websites. No matter where you content is, Tomahawk can find it and play it.
· Connect to your other machines and friends via Jabber, Google Chat and Twitter. Browse and play their libraries, playlists and stations.
· Think of it as "antiTunes". It's a music player that is optimized for one thing... to play, discover and share music.
· Yeah, it's like a "genius" playlist... only smarter, and continuous. Whatever you are in the mood for, we've got the knobs and dials to find it for you.
· Metadata from playlists from all over the web - and other media players - can easily be imported into Tomahawk.
