What is SoundCleod?

SoundCleod is a desktop application which brings SoundCloud to macOS and Windows without using a web browser.

Compared to using in a web browser like Chrome or Firefox you will get the following extras when using SoundCleod:

  • Dark mode
  • Desktop notifications
  • Control playback using media keys on the keyboard ( ❚❚ and friends)
  • True full screen without browser buttons
  • Control playback from the Notification Center using the Now Playing widget on macOS
  • Control playback from the macOS application menu
  • Stop playback when your computer goes to sleep
  • Close or hide all windows without interrupting playback

SoundCleod is a weird name. How to pronounce it?

How to get it?
