Discover Amarok

Amarok has many exciting features. Here's just the tip of the iceberg.

Integrated Web Services

Much of where work has been invested in Amarok 2 is the Web services integration. Now Amarok can connect to various Web services and access the music directly, greatly expanding the potential number of songs at your fingertips. Thanks to the powerful API, adding additional services can be done with very little effort.
