Amarok 2 – First Impressions

leave a comment »

Installed Amarok 2 following this link: http://www.kubuntu.org/news/amarok-2.0

There is no last.fm integration. The earlier versions had this feature of submitting tracks listened to last.fm. It seems support for mp3 players like ipods was also removed. The interface too looks very minimalistic  and is kind of surprising since KDE apps normally have a lot options.

One improvement is the speed of scanning your collection. It is significantly faster in Amarok 2. Other than this improvement, there is nothing noteworthy in Amarok 2 to warrant an upgrade from 1.4.
