Ecoute, created by PixiApps, has been a moderately popular alternative to iTunes for over a year now. With version 3, developer Louka Desroziers and interface designer Julien Sagot hope to catapult their audio player’s status from semi-popular indie app to major-league success. So is the latest version of Ecoute ready for the big time?
iTunes is great. It does everything you’d ever need from a media player. However, sometimes everything is just too much. Having so many features can be a little more of a drag on your computer’s processing power, and makes the app cumbersome and difficult to use.
This is where Ecoute comes in… Developed by PixiApps, It’s a lightweight, fast, and simple standalone application for playing your iTunes library without iTunes! I love iTunes, and I was skeptical that I could be tempted by something offering less features for a small price, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised. This review will offer an overview of what you can do with this excellent piece software.
