I remember using Â the free music app Songbird a long time ago but didn’t quite fully maximized its features. Â In fact, I thought the app was no longer existing until now that I learned about its latest software update, Songbird version 1.4.2.
In case you never heard of Songbird before, it’s an open-source music app that you can use if you’re tired of using iTunes and Winamp as it provides simple interface with powerful features to let you manage and listen to your music files.
For its latest version, Songbird is introducing new features such as Mass Storage Class Support, CD Rip support, and Purple Rain Feather.
MSC Device Support lets you sync tracks from MSC devices to phones and MP3 players including the iPod Â through MSC mode. Â Music tracks which are in incompatible formats are transcoded on the fly to be supported by Songbird.
Songbird also now lets you rip CDs into FLAC/OGG or WMA for Windows users.
Finally, the new Songbird now sports a new Purple Rain Feather for a sleek-looking and cool interface. It now has dedicated toggle buttons for frequently used Media Views and simplified display pane management.
