This and the previous version conflicts with Ichat. whenever both are lauched., Ichat always gives error ( sending too much data). Only when i turn off Ibar that Ichat would behave normal.

Yes, that is a problem with iChat/iBar. What you can do is set the rotate message time to 10 seconds. This will send the new status message once every 10 seconds, thereby reducing the amount of data sent to a minimum.

Thanks,

I tought this was going to be an another iTunes remote, but it's much more than that. I have just tested it and, so far, it seems to work pretty well.
Great work !

Hint -- make it a Cocoa app and not RealBasically craptacular (your app is NOT craptacular, RealBasic is. Your's has great promise.)

I'm interested as to why you think REALbasic is "craptacular". Is it because of apps like Formation, or perhaps iVideo? (Yes, those are both Made with REALbasic) Most likely it's because REALbasic allows pretty much anyone to write software, and as a result, really bad apps end up on the internet.

All I can say is that I don't release anything unless it has gone through rigorous testing and passes many qualifying tests for usability and function.

Cheers,

Awesome. The first iTunes controller since PTHiTunes and iTunesDoodad to be worth the install.

One to keep your eye on...

Well, I downloaded this expecting another piece of iTunes-controlling-dumbness. But, upon loading, yes, this app is really quite well done. It's not in your face at all, it's customisable (to some extent), and it's actually pretty useful. Combined with Synergy, this covers all the bases.

One quick request though - how about making those tabs snap together, or to the screen edge, when you command-drag in order to move them?

Impressed, and will be watching to see what this little app evolves into (hint, keep it light, not bloated).
