Musicly – simple music player


Musicly shows some promise. The most important attribute of a music player is that the interface should focus on listening to music without unwelcome distractions. Too often music players lumber the interface with things like fancy visualization gizmos. Thankfully, Musicly steers a good path.

There are lots of nice touches already present in the software. But there are some significant issues. For example, it doesn’t have gapless playback and it’s a bit of a memory hog.

Some basic functionality is missing such as shuffle play, repeat options and playlists, but we can live without them. The player did struggle to play some tracks though.

Given there are so many high quality music players which have gapless playback and which are far more frugal with system resources, Musicly doesn’t currently warrant our recommendation. But we’ll keep abreast of development and will report again if there are significant improvements.
