Review: Rockarrolla – jukebox emulator


Rockarrolla is a curiosity to say the least. It’s a very basic song player. While it’s stable in operation and frugal with system resources, it’s probably too basic for most music lovers.

If you’re looking for a ‘regular’ music player, we’d advise you look elsewhere (try our Music Players roundup for some great recommendations).

The concept of feeding the jukebox with virtual coins is bizarre. OK, it’s harmless but rather pointless. What next? Feed the jukebox with cryptocurrency?

Given the jukebox concept, we weren’t expecting gapless playback. And our expectations were correct. Depending on the type of music you listen to, the lack of gapless playback may be a showstopper.
