It’s been a while since I’ve done an application review.. so here is one! Songbird.. it’s more or less just an itunes clone, so what’s the big deal? It’s Open Source! What’s that mean? Anyone can improve it, write extensions for it, and change its theme. This leads things open to numerous possibilities.
There are already extensions to make songbird communicate with your ipod, download song lyrics, cover art, make mash up disks, and fancy visualization effects. Oh, and did I mention it runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux? Why not just download it and give it a try? It’s free.
So, what’s the downside? From what I can tell the program is currently very CPU and memory intensive. I’ve looked at some of their bug reports and this is a problem they know about and are looking into.. so hopefully it will be fixed by version 1.1.
Overall, I think it’s a great program with a lot of features. Tune it up a little bit and it will be perfect. Give it a shot, you might like it!
And currently wordpress isn’t allowing me to upload images for some reason, so I’ll get a screenshot on here later.
