"The best remotes are the ones that you can use without even looking. Just like your TV’s."
That's exactly how easily you can use SoHo, the minimal music app. Control music from iTunes, Spotify, Rdio and Radium in an amazingly easy way.
It was built to be SIMPLE
SoHo simplifies things. It is the answer to the 4 most common actions that you do while listening to music:
- Tuning volume: Whenever volume needs tuning, SoHo makes it easy to change volume by simply scrolling the mouse or touchpad.
- Play/Pause: Just 1 click at the Song Bar.
- Next/Previous track: With 1 swipe to the left or right, you can go to the previous or next song effortlessly.
- Name of the song: Always displayed in the status bar. In the size you want it to be.
All the actions above can be done without moving your eyes from your work (except, of course, to know the song name, you’d surely have to look then.)
It was built to be POWERFUL
SoHo now supports iTunes, Spotify, Rdio and Radium. They all work seamlessly, even if you have multiple applications playing at the same time. Just 1 right click at the Song Bar, makes it easy to switch between players, or identify which player is currently playing your music.
Furthermore, SoHo is a gateway to the social music network; all your songs will be scrobbled to your Last.fm account.
It was built to work with you SILENTLY
Soho keeps your music listening experience clutter-free and without any distractions.
For example, you may not want to be notified about the song name or artist name. It is information that is always there when you need it, and when you don't, it doesn't get in the way of your work due to unnecessary notifications.
And that is how the rest of Soho works. The app just keeps working, silently.
And, lastly, it was built to GROW
SoHo is still growing. The design of SoHo 2 has just been conceptualized 10 days before releasing SoHo. In the next version, you would be able to do much more with it, bringing to you greater ease of listening, greater comfort and more features. Do you want to see your ideas to feature in Soho 2? Just let me know! A credit line and more will go to you.
Hope you enjoy SoHo as I do!
So amazing, so amazing.
It’s simple. It does what it says it does. It works and looks good on Yosemite and El Capitan. What more do you want?
HOW TO SKIP SONGS: at first, I couldn’t figure out how to skip a song, but here’s how… just hover over SoHo in the menu bar, and place two fingers on your trackpad. Move your fingers left to skip a song, or move them right to go back a song.
It’s just amazing!
Truly Fantastic Application
This is the status bar music app I have honestly been longing for for years. I am amazed at how accurately the developers hit it on the first try. This is truly a fantastic and incredibly useful app, and I am looking forward to seeing it grow. Thank you!
does exactly like it says, works exactly like it should
why has it taken so long for this app to be developed? It’s amazing! Does exactly what it says right out of the box, simple, elegant. I honestly can’t think of a way to make it better.
