CNET Editors' review
Users who have audio files spread across multiple computers and operating systems may have trouble compiling them using traditional programs. Tomahawk for Mac works well to search for and list music, and it's easy to use despite its lack of instructions.
Tomahawk for Mac is available as freeware with no advertisements or payments required. Installation completed quickly without the need for acceptance of a user agreement. Upon startup, a menu allows the user to link the program to outside accounts for music services as well as Google, among others. The program, itself, does not have any user instructions, but the menu is well designed and easy to use. After the program automatically searches the computer for music files, recently downloaded ones are displayed prominently, and others are as easy to search through as they are in other programs, like iTunes. Users also have the option to create playlists and stations for easier organizing and listening. Other devices that have the program installed can also have their music displayed and available, as well, which is a good feature, especially for those with devices running multiple operating systems.
Tomahawk for Mac's easy-to-use menus and features that work across several devices and operating systems make it a useful option for those with disorganized audio collections.
Stop chasing your music across different machines, services and websites. No matter where you content is, Tomahawk can find it and play it.
