    Pocket Casts is a great program, but it is purely focused on podcasts, not on audio and video player and library management. For example, it cannot rip audio CDs or play movies.

    It's a web-based music streaming platform. Not a music library manager

    A music manager, but a poor one at that. Frequently freezes or crashes. Can only manage 40K songs. Only good if you use Amazon Music services.
