Open source media player

Tomahawk is a free and open-source media player that allows users to stream music from a variety of sources. These sources can be both online and local. Featuring a sleek and stylish interface, Tomahawk promised to be a modern streaming service that can offer a wider selection of choices to their users.


Tomahawk is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. It was also available for Android, but the app never left the beta stage of development. Although Tomahawk is considered as an abandoned project for all platforms, the software is still usable.

Modern Music Streaming

Tomahawk’s best selling point is that it has a modern way to stream music. It offers a quick and easy platform where users can stream media files from different sources. It takes into account the user’s preferences and finds ways the best place to stream media files. It comes with a built-in search function that will eliminate the need to go to browsers and search for media files.

Local and Online

Tomahawk can be used to listen to both online and local files, but it is a better music streamer than the player. However, the search function can get a bit frustrating since it doesn’t show any results sometimes. Users can choose to make their collections and playlists available online, however, so they can find people with the same interests and tastes through that.

Used to Be Promising

Tomahawk had a lot of promise, but its discontinuation makes it a bit outdated and frustrating. Its premise is inspired, but unless the execution can match its level, it will just be another sleek-looking media player.
