this is a great idea and the addition of the lyrics makes it well worth the 20 bucks to me anyway
one more addition if possible would be an information page for loading reviews and additional articles about album or artist that can be read over length of several or all songs on album
cheers

'USD $9.95, that's 50% off the final price of $19.95! '


I hope that the forthcoming plan to ask $20 for this, is a joke.
Who in their right mind would pay twenty bucks for this.
It doesn't actually do anything !

IMHO - Keep it at $10 and set it up for a 50% off sale
as a MacUpdate Promo immediately.


Twenty dollars for this - Is the developer mad ?

There are more features planned which will make it into the final 1.0 release, a few of which are mentioned at the blog post announcing this release. I suppose I should have made that more obvious. Thanks for the feedback.

Will this allow one to play iTunes movies full-screen on a secondary monitor without the main monitor going all-black?

Sorry, Billboard is just an iTunes status display and controller. However, you can use QuickTime Player (possibly Pro-only?) to watch movies fullscreen without blanking out other monitors.

I'd suggest you send a feature request to the iTunes team via http://www.apple.com/feedback/, this is a feature I'd like to see as well.

Thanks for the info. I've already submitted a feature request to Apple on the iTunes thing.

It's very seldom you run across a program that does EXACTLY what you're looking for. Billboard is one of them.

I wanted a program that displayed my iTunes songs on my second monitor, which in my setup is a TV in my livingroom. This way I get the song information when listening to my iTunes songs in the livingroom, relaxing or having a party.

I can't say enough how much I love this program.
Fits like a glove!

Billboard is very cool indeed. One minor quibble: when iTunes is paused, it detects this right away. Great. However, when iTunes starts playing again, it doesn't detect this until the next track starts. is there any way to get it to notice that iTunes is playing again before the next track starts?

Thanks for the feedback. The next release should make it more responsive and fix this issue.

Works very good on my G4 powerbook 1 Ghz with two monitors. Nice that it switches from left to right about every 20 seconds (adjustable would be good). More different transitions would be good. Changing the text font and size could be good as well. CPU usage is only about 6% until the switch then it jumps to 60% during the switch, not terrible but maybe could get better.

I'm having the same problem: "itunes closed" although it is not and even playing a song...Would be great though to get it working, as i like the idea of having a fullscreen itunes cover art display...
