We’ve always liked Tomahawk as a concept: an app that sits in between the various digital music services, providing the connecting glue for sharing music and porting playlists, among other features. But it was always something that people like us – music/tech geeks – liked, with its developers admitting they had work to do to make it more accessible to mainstream music fans. That’s exactly what they’ve been doing, with the first fruits now showing in an updated Tomahawk desktop app, and a beta Android app. “This is our biggest release to date that, we believe, will help bring Tomahawk to the mainstream with a new design, a slew of new features and major usability improvements,” explained the team. “While this release doesn’t fully deliver on all of our redesign plans, we think it is a massive step forward for the project.” The technology was always clever, but if the new design delivers on its promise, Tomahawk could carve out a role for itself in the digital music ecosystem.
