The ages of MP3-Players and even compact disks for music are over and this is good. However letting the whole industry be ruled by two or three monopolists is bad for the musicians and thus for the music quality and thus for the Ubuntu users.

Ubuntu needs an application that satisfies the modern music, radio and podcasts consumer without giving in to the big three closed source streaming services.

I created MusicPod - a local audio, internet radio and podcast application for the Ubuntu Desktop in Yaru design, great UX and made with Flutter.

One future big feature is about to emerge: a connection to online stores to buy digital audio for your collection. I will talk about the design progress to get this feature into MusicPod alongside the design and development process until this point.
