Great app, but what about when can't find a lyric and is already in the song (mp3 or m4a file) why can't display that lyric.

Another thing is the CPU that use, between 15%/20% is a little too much for a small and simple application...

Thank You for your feedback Lookky. :)
I'm optimizing the app and also adding some other features such as saving lyrics to files and also use lyrics of the files.

Good. but what about libretti? It will do for my Charles Aznavour, Roxette, Savage Garden & Mireille Mathieu. But that's about all of contemporary music I listen to.

But what about libretti? My Haendel, Vivaldi, Marcello brothers, Hasse, Caldara, Porpora, Gluck, Bononcini, Pergolesi… Shall I go on? Or is this app intended for Americans alone? To retrieve rap, gospel and pop music texts alone? Well, what else would they need, right?..

Hi Shanin. Your app works perfectly well fetching and displaying lyrics.

Two suggestions:
- a button to copy lyrics to songs in iTunes (like Get Lyrical)
- ability to automatically start when itunes launches

Thanx for your app!

In fact I'd liked to can see the lyrics of a song which I'd like to learn to sing.
First try, "Dedicated to the one I love".
'No found'!!!
Bah, the only reason cold be a world wide black out of the whole internet system, not a reason enough to not read the lyrics in MY infos on MY iTunes library where I save something useful just in case of total planet destruction.
May I suggest to search the lyrics where they are most probably?
In the mean time I listened other 4 songs, 2 of them for sure sold in millions; nothing is found, while I could, if I could paste-in-the-past them ;-) on my iTunes library file metadata.

This tiny app does what it says and I don't need to change to Dashboard to read those lyrics any more !
However, I would like it more if there are some more settings like being able to change the colours of fonts & background (green showing in deep black), and the default scrolling speed, which would make this perfect !
Thank you.
