Rhyme, a minimalist player with an interface that is very reminiscent of Apple


Most users already have a favorite music player. In my case, I like Elisa, Lollypop and I will like VLC when v4.0 reaches the stable version, but they are all so different and there are so many things to take into account that it is possible that we have not yet found what we are looking for. If there were no tastes, there would be no developers who created different things, as is the case with Rhyme. Although, to tell the truth, it is very reminiscent of something.

The colors and the rest of the Rhyme interface reminds a lot of the iOS Music app, iPadOS or macOS, but it's even simpler. You are taking your first steps, so you have yet to add features such as playlists. At the time of this writing, the "Playlists" section exists, but it shows a text that says they will be coming soon ("Coming soon"). If I put it in English it is because it is not in Spanish yet.

Rhyme uses the color palette that Apple uses in its Music app

Once we start to play music, at the bottom appear the options of Play / Pause, forward / backward, random mode, repeat mode, a progress bar and the slider of the volume. On the left side we see what song is playing, the artist and the album cover, and Rhyme is little more. Well, it would not be fair if I said that, since it has a section ("Home") in which we see what we have recently played and an albums tab to choose what we want to put. The word to define it is simple or minimalist. What's more, has light and dark themes and more of the community may be installed in the future.

As the official information tells us, to install it on linux we can choose the flatpak pack, snapthe AppImage, but it is also available in DEB packages, RPM, for pacman or source code from this link.

Rhyme still has something to improve, or so I see it. On the left side they should add things like artists as well as records, that's at the very least. That would not detract from its simplicity and would make things easier. It has a good design, but I would be lying if I said it was made for me; now I am happy with Elisa and in the future I will be with VLC 4, but we could not stop talking about one more option that, in addition, is multiplatform.
