Being able to read the lyrics as the song plays adds a whole new dimension to your musical experience! You can understand lyrics that you could never hear clearly before or even hear at all. The developer has proven himself to be very responsive to suggestions and requests for help. He continually adds valuable functions and enhancements to an already wonderful and very modestly priced application. What it does so simply and effectively is of such value that you'd think that iTunes would have long ago made this applcation an integral part of its software. Songs have a new found joy, directness and vitality when their words leap out at you on your screen, and when you have numerous controls to tweak the way they appear. But you also have a lot of control over how you present the album covers on your screen. In fact DesktopLyrics brings back the focus on album covers and artwork, that was sadly lost when Apple somewhat shockingly retired their much loved "cover flow” feature to display album artwork. Overall, DesktopLyrics is so valuable, so much fun and such a great enhancement, that you’ll be sorry you didn’t discover it long ago!
A very helpful and easy to use ap. As they add and improve functionality I'll add a star.
DesktopLyrics is a pure pleasure and joy to use! If you enjoy lyrics and you find that having them displayed on a screen enhances your music experience, then this latest version of DesktopLyrics is well worth the modest $3.99 price. The newly added easily customizable features are simple, effective and in combination make for a delightful and handsome presentation. I don't understand those who quibble over a developer charging a very modest price for the effort he or she made to in order to create a very useful, practical and well designed piece of software. About a year ago I complained about what I felt was a problem in the earlier much simpler version of DesktopLyrics, By so doing likely inflicting what was probably disproportionate grief on the part of the developer. But as a result of my comment the developer promptly corrected the problem. This is an example of the responsive and attentive service provided by this developer. But the bottom line is that this is an excellent piece of software that works works well, looks great, is conveniently and easily customizable, overall a pleasure to use, and worth every penny of the $3.99 that is charged for it.
WARNING! Arrow keys completely malfunction with the current 1.3.5 version of DesktopLyrics running under Lion 10.7. At least for me that was my consistent and repeatedly demonstrable experience. Because there is no information out there yet about this issue and because it was completely unexpected, it took a combination of the Apple Genius Bar and AppleCare more than three hours to find the culprit responsible for my arrow keys improperly working or not working at all in my MacBook Pro. The arrow keys malfunction under DesktopLyrics 1.3.5 in menu lists, and file & folder lists as well as in text applications such as the current versions of Pages and Word for the Mac. Before this problem occurred I loved using DesktopLyrics and it worked very well. Hopefully this issue will be addressed promptly by its developers.
