  1. XMPP/Jabber playlist sync

    I really love this project. A strong open source base and add ons for proprietary services for users who need them are exactly the right way in my opinion. Every user can decided how free or proprietary he/she wants to listen to music and has lots of alternatives to choose from. I believe in Hatchet as well, but a second option to sync playlists would be good for users that want to be independent and maybe even use their own XMPP servers. From what I read about older version this was possible once...
    I set up the same XMPP account…

    • Find a dedicated artist image service, like other music apps use.

      The artist images are hit or miss on helpfulness. Find a dedicated service that gets official band pictures please. I don't want a building represent a band I love.

          • Play Next & Play Last Functionality

            Tomahawk already has an add to queue functionality which works great however if like me you often listen to music in shuffle mode however also like to curate what you want to listen to and dictate "I want this song to play next" and then you see another song that you want to play afterwards (last) this is impossible to do. Adding "Play next" and "Play last" functionality to the controls in the menu bar and the contextual menu when right clicking on 'something' would be greatly appreciated.

            • Now Playing View with Information, Photos and Lyrics

              Tomahawk already shows good Artist and Album Info while scrolling through media. It would be nice to see information related to the currently playing song also.
              I imagine a Now Playing View showing either Information like Artist's biography and photos or the lyrics. This could be accessed intuitively by clicking on the bottom panel or the song title. This panel could then move upwards and go fullscreen, serving as a screensaver also.

              • streaming DLNA and Google CAST (Airplay ?)

                On Linux PC (Ubuntu and Linux Mint) that we can make streaming to DLNA and Chromecast. Airplay would be nice too. But probably difficult since on Linux ...
                Thank you.

                • Cross platform Playlist creation easier

                  The main draw to Tomahawk for me is creating playlists with songs from multiple services. I want to be able to connect my SoundCloud account and view my likes, as well as view my playlists within my already connected Google Play account. This makes making new playlists much easier.

                  • Portable?

                    Is Tomahawk portable?

                    By "portable", I mean does it save its settings in the same folder that the app is run in as opposed to the registry or outside the .exe's folder?

                    • hook up with Soundiiz.com – for *easy* universal playlist transfers

                      Soundiiz is in a similar camp, trying to free playlists for the "users"/owners/people.
                      they have an online tool to transfer btw a little plentitude of services, like Deezer,Grooveshark, LastFM, qobuz, soundcloud and rdio...

                      so, to hook up with them, would make sense and align ressources.

                        • automatically add spotify download songs to my library so that I can have both my local and spotify library together on one app.

                          I haven't found an app (on android) that will properly combine all of my downloaded music all in one library (ex. combine music from my local files, spotify songs that are fownloaded, Google play songs that are downloaded etc.) and personally I'm a fan of shuffling all my songs, but would really like to be able to shuffle my local music while still being able to listen to songs from my spotify library, without having to open the different apps to do so.

                          • When music is available from multiple sources, Tomahawk should play the version with the highest word size and sample rate.

                            Frequently I will have a song available on my local storage at a higher sample size or bitrate but Tomahawk still plays the version off of Spotify. I would prefer the higher quality, non-compressed flac file off my local system.

                            • support metadata in local collection music files

                              You play music files from the local collection. I worked very hard to have detailed, correct metadata in those music files. Yet Tomahawk seems to ignore this metadata in favour of less complete, often incorrect metadata from elsewhere on the net. My music files have cover art, but Tomahawk displays no cover art for many tracks. You should be taking full advantage of good music audio, and metadata, whereever you cand find it. If it's right in your lap, you should DEFINITELY be taking advantage of it.

                                • Display album date on Artist page and Album view

                                  I often browse through some artists though the "Related Artists" feature, and instead of listening to the "Top Hits" (which is useful) I sometimes want to listen to the "Latest album" (or their "First Album") and that information is not displayed in the list of albums.

                                  Information can be obtained from MusicBrainz which is a pretty reliable source.

                                  Differentiating "Compilations" or "Greatest Hits" type albums would be a nice extra feature.

                                    I find tomahawk the most good-looking player for linux. (I really don`t understand why other look like shit.) And i like to store my music in flac, but your player does not support .cue files. It would be nice if it did.

                                    • Full Subsonic / musiccabinet support

                                      Nice new release! I love the UI. However, Subsonic is still not fully supported. I can only get the artists, but if I try to play something that is not in Spotify or in other services I get cannot play error.

                                      Could you please add subsonic/musiccabinet support, because it's still unusable. Just a humble wish from user who has 50% underground music... :)

                                      Using the Mac app (Yosemite).

                                      All the best,
                                      Roni

                                      • small player/always on top

                                        Be able to minimize player to a much smaller size which can sit on top of my other open windows.

                                          1. E.G. if I search for 'Hannah Wants', I want to see her DJ mixes too, not only original songs.

                                          2. It might also be useful to show 'user playlists' from soundcloud.
