Playwatch... Listening to your favorite music while working or surfing the Internet can be very inspiring and/or relaxing. But sometimes you hear a song and can't think or the title, or know the song title and can't think of the artist. But you really want to know. So you have to interrupt your work, and bring up iTunes to find out what you're listening to. Wouldn't it be nice if you could get the information with just a glance?

With Playwatch you catch a glimpse of all the information without disturbing you work, right in the menubar of your Mac. Song title, artist, album and more are displayed with simple and pleasant more...

Playwatch is very good & easy to use & is a combination of SizzlingKeys & BravoTunes, which is just what I was looking for... something that displays the track info & gives me a controller bar in the MENUBAR, as well as giving me the option of using HOTKEYS.
I was considering buying this (even though I think that the price is WAY ABOVE what it should be... me'thinks it should be $4.99 considering the competition & to keep it competitive !!) but then I noticed the author has decided to take the PISS with the price!!
On MacUpdate it's been selling for a long while at $8.99, but when you click the link it now takes you to the newly updated site with links to the new AppStore, and by the looks of things the author has decided to take advantage of selling it on the AppStore & therefore take advantage of unaware prospective buyers and has decided to BUMP THE PRICE UP TO $15.99 !!
Dear Author, considering you don't do many updates to thing & that there are alternatives which come close to Playwatch & which are FREE, I think you'll seriously have to rethink you're greed, and aim for a realistic down to earth price if you ever want to consider selling your product.

The price is now $11.99 or €9.99. Considering the huge amount of work that has gone into the development of this piece of software, I believe the price is appropriate. I tested a lower price, about $3.99 and sales did not increase. I tested a higher price and sales did not decrease. It turns out, that people who really like this software are willing to pay even higher prices. People that don't like it won't even pay $1 or $2 for it.

Developing software is hard work, and extremely time consuming. It's not a kind of Hobby, that I do after my normal work. Although I really love developing software it is also my normal work. Would you like to go to work day by day without getting appropriate payment?

WOW! Great first effort. I've been a Synergy user for years but I fear it's done for. Developer blames iTunes/Apple but CoverSutra and now this app play just fine with iTunes art. I was never satisfied with CoverSutra. This app may just get me to switch. Only gripe is no keystrokes. (Yet?)
