Harmony is a cross-platform formerly Open Source music player with cloud compatibility and an intuitive sleek User Interface.
It features online music streaming from Spotify and Deezer (among other streaming services), last.fm integration, system integration (local files), and a responsive UI.
Harmony was completely FOSS until Vince (the developer) had to make the “difficult but necessary decision to switch Harmony to a commercial model” because he didn’t receive enough support from the community to help maintain the project.
Nevertheless, Harmony is free to evaluate but you will need to purchase it if you want to continue using it.
Vince has promised to Open Source the music player again if it doesn’t receive enough commits for more than 6 months. Check here for an explanation of the app’s license types and his appeal for project support.
