A streaming music player, playing music from Jamendo.com, The platform for independent music.

This app is still a work in progress. It is usable but some features are still missing (for example marking favorites).

There are a lot of changes to the orignal Jam. Most notable are:

  • completely refactored user interface
  • added support for media buttons (MPRIS)
  • broken features are removed (login, radios, downloads)

Other than that, it can browse artists, albums, tracks, and playlists, find similar tracks, search, add to queue and of course stream music.

Please note: this is a fork of Jam by nodevel. Jam has not seen an update for ~5 years, and the original author could not be reached. I released this version under the GNU GPL v3+, even though the original licensing was not clear (see this comment). If that is not ok, I will remove this app from OpenRepos and separate my changes.

This app is free software released under the GNU GPL v3+. The source code is available here: https://github.com/ichthyosaurus/harbour-jammy

Great with an update to this app, but for some reason it doesn't continue to play the next song when the previous if finished? I have to press "play" to make it play the next song.

Fixed in v0.8.0

Awesome! Now it seems to be working and it's possible to listen without interuption. :)
I've noticed  that tracks seems to stutter for just about two seconds in the beginning, at least on my Xperia X.

That's normal; it's a choice between sometimes stuttering at the beginning or having to wait until the track is buffered...

Thanks for the report, I'll look into it!
