Editors' Review

Kodi for Mac is an all-in-one media center for OS X that allows you to manage all of your multimedia from a single interface. The software offers a streamlined interface up front with a number of powerful backend tools, designed to provide enhanced access to things like Live TV, recordings, and more.

Pros

Stable, easy-to-use interface: Previous versions of Kodi had stability issues that could lead to crashes during use. With recent updates, running on OS X 10.10, we experienced no crashes at all. The slick interface ran smoothly without any hiccups or slowdowns, and finding media took only seconds from each of the menus. For all basic features, finding our media was pain free as well.

Numerous power features within arm's reach: Kodi allows you to dig into a number of options, including more than a dozen PVR controllers and dozens of add-ons that include a range of powerful features, such as screen capture, audio controllers, and more. Some of these add-ons and controllers are in beta or various forms of testing by third parties, but Kodi does a good job of making them all easily accessible.

Cons

Looks like it belongs on another platform: Kodi runs very smoothly on OS X 10.10, providing a separate interface for all of your media viewing. But when the screen switches, it looks a lot like software for Windows and not OS X. From the color scheme to the menu layout and animations, it's not the clean, flat look we've come to expect on Mac. This is not a major fault of the software so much as an aesthetic quibble, but it is something to keep in mind.

Bottom Line

Despite a dated look, Kodi runs very smoothly, allowing you to easily manage all of your multimedia from a single interface on a Mac. You can gather and create playlists for music, videos, and images, and with so many plug-ins and controllers, the range of options only continues to grow.
