The options never hurt. The more options, the more likely we are to find something that perfectly suits our needs. For that reason it is good that there are so many different programs for listening to music: each one is perfect for a type of user. Where there are also many options is in applications that I will say "Franz type", that is, programs to have many different web services in the same application. The one we bring you today is called Station, and promote it as "an app to control them all", as in The Lord of the Rings.
Like Rambox or Wave, Station has your own editor to add more services, if that were necessary. And, well, I think it is. And it is that, right now, a user like me who likes Twitter Lite cannot get used to the full web version, although it is true that they are trying a new version that is exactly the same as the Lite or Mobile version. This is just one example of why it is good that we have the option to create new services, although this is not something instantaneous as it is in Rambox, Wave or Franz, the latter with its own trick.
Station is a modified web browser to run web-apps
What differentiates Station from other apps is that it is an almost complete browser. It has navigation arrows that will allow us to go forward or backward. On the other hand, each service allows us to add more pages, which in the example of Twitter will allow us to have the main screen and the notification screen on different pages, for example. But what is good, on the one hand, is also bad on the other, since this is what seems to delay the creation of our own apps: when we are editing them, what we are actually doing is a request for them to send us the app by mail. Once received, we can install it by following the instructions in the email we just received.
Station is compatible with the native notifications of our operating system. Speaking of notifications, too has a do not disturb mode, something that is sometimes missed in other apps like the one mentioned Franz. And everything it offers, it offers free. There is a payment option, but only for companies.
Station is available from this link. What we download in Linux is a AppImage, so it will only be necessary to right-click on it, give it permissions and then double-click on its icon. When he asks us if we want it integrated, we say yes if we want it to appear in the menu. Otherwise, we can always open the program by double clicking on its AppImage.
Personally, I have to say that I really like Station. Only I do not like that Twitter is in its full version, but that is fixed by asking for our own version (adding http://mobile.twitter.com) or waiting for the interface change to be added permanently. You've tried? What do you think of Station?
