  • Description

    Robonobo is an open source music streaming and sharing app for Windows, Mac and Linux. It enables you to view your friends’ music libraries and playlists and listen instantly, while downloading the music files to your computer.

    The application’s key features include:

    Social music

    - See your friends’ music libraries and playlists and listen instantly. Add your favourite tracks to your library, create playlists of your own and publish them via Facebook, Twitter, email or any way you like.

    - Import your friends from Facebook – or add your own – and have them updated automatically as you make new friends and find new artists.

    Music in the cloud

    - Robonobo plays tracks from the network immediately, so you can listen from anywhere, and downloads the music files and saves them on your computer so you can burn them to CD or export them to your music player.

    Support for artists

    - Future releases of the software will give artistis greater ability to control the distribution of their tracks and sell music directly through the app, as well as tapping into the social network around their music and making great relationships with their fans.

    Copyright safe

    - This technology will protect you by making sure you don’t accidentally share copyrighted music over the Internet, but it’s not finished yet – and until it is, we ask that you limit your music sharing to public-domain and Creative Commons tracks, and those made freely available by the artist. With power comes responsibility.
