The advent of Spotify has meant that many operating systems do not have to rely on the iTunes app to have music on desktops. So there are alternatives such as Spotify or SoundCloud, the latter very popular among freer users. However SoundCloud has no app for Ubuntu, But if for mobile devices. This can be solved with a large dose of programming where we emulate the SoundCloud app for Ubuntu Phone or simply installing SoundNode on our Ubuntu.
SoundNode is an unofficial SoundCloud client with which we can connect our SoundCloud account and enjoy all your music as the interface provides the same power as the official SoundCloud app.
SoundNode also allows us to connect with our Facebook account in such a way that we can give Likes to the songs or just share it with social media, all in a simple and clear way, as if it were SoundCloud.
SoundNode will allow us to interact with social media as if it were SoundCloud
SoundNode is written in NODE.JS, Angular.js and also uses the SoundCloud API so it is presented as a good alternative to the SoundCloud webapp. Its installation is simple and the process simple. We just have to download the corresponding package from your GitHub repository and then unzip the file to a folder in our Home. Once this is done we just have to run the SoundNode app and the app will already work. Then if you like we have options like anchor at the Unity pier or create a desktop icon that links to the application to run from the desktop.
SoundNode is a pretty good client of SoundCloud but there are also alternatives that are not only compatible with SoundCloud but also with other music or podcast services like Spotify and iVoox, but none offer as much integration with SoundCloud as SoundNode. Now the choice is yours, but you can choose to try everything and decide Don’t you believe?
