HiFijack is a nimble little application that provides possibly the easiest available way to download free music.

Type in a song name, hit search, check the preview, then hit the iTunes button to download and add the MP3 to iTunes!

If you want multiple songs from an album, type the artist and album name, then click through the results to download different tracks!


  • Accurate search results you can flick through with the left/right buttons.
  • Instant audio preview of the current result.
  • One-click download and iTunes import, with no clutter left behind.
  • It's more...

What's New

Works well.
Narrow feature set.
Minimalist interface.

There is a lot of potential for improvement.
Software developer responded quickly to email.

Works fine here, but search results are so pooooor, unless you are looking for the same old songs or artists you never heard before (then I have different sources than choosing random ones thru an app).

It states in the requirements that it requires 10.6, and you're running 10.5

This doesn't do anything. I get results from a search and then a black box shows up to the left. I can scroll through choices which inevitably make no difference. When clicked, the iTunes button shows a progress indicator for 5 seconds, then nothing.

Nimble perhaps, but at 96.3 MB I don't think little is the word.
