Ivy...

Control iTunes - There are tons of controllers for iTunes out there, some are useless, some are great, but Ivy brings a new aspect to the market. Style.

Be Your Own DJ - Find any song in your library with the "Find Song" feature. This state of the art technology allows you to search your library for that one track by The Who and play it, all without going to iTunes.

Grrrrrr - Another advantage to using Ivy is that you can use the Growl notification system. Growl is one of the most innovative technologies in the industry, allowing both developers and users to connect using simple messages.

For those of you wondering what happened to this application, I am sorry to say that it has been discontinued.

I became too busy to continue development of Ivy and so therefore am pronouncing it, as much as I dislike the term, VaporWare.

However, for those looking for the same functionality, please check out Artwork (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/26056/artwork). It's got most of the functionality of Ivy, with no bugs. It's also being developed by a dear friend of mine, so go and show him support on his first public app.

P.S. Please don't take this as plugging Artwork, I'm merely trying to make up for the fact that I can't develop Ivy anymore.

"Find any song in your library with the “Find Song” feature. This state of the art technology allows you to search your library for that one track by The Who and play it, all without going to iTunes."

that isn't state of the art technology...I came up with that for Play MiniTunes/Play LiteTunes except mine works a little more efficiently...don't steal ideas and credit them as your "state of the art" stuff.

There is a confirmed bug with the Curtain feature on Intel computers. The way of determining the users screen size doesn't work. This will hopefully be fixed in the next RC, or at the least, make Curtain work on Intel machines.

Sorry for the trouble,

Dan

alright here is my feedback:

the curtian is a cool idea if you dont have front row, but it doesnt work at all. doesnt show current song playing, doesnt show switch. just the rating (which is odd)

the window is a little big, i really dont need that much space just to state the artist.

there is no search button, i really think it needs a button to open and close the search window (which does work well).

also, right off the bat there is an applescript error (as mentioned below) and it refuses to work without growl. i dont use growl, i wont use growl, so an option to just skip the whole growl thing would be nice


thanks for trying, a little work and this application would be some hot stuff. peace

sounds like a good program, but judging from the screenshot it could use some space efficiency. its too big and obtrusive for what it does
