iChatStatus for Mac1.2.1

Dynamically update iChat status.

What is iChatStatus for Mac

iChatStatus is an application to dynamically update the status in iChat. The default script queries iTunes to see the currently playing song and puts that as the iChat status. Users could customize with scripts to take availability information from iCal or other sources.

What's new in iChatStatus

Version 1.2.1 adds the following:
  • If (#) starts a message (from a script), the status message is not changed. This can be used to leave the status alone, for example in the iTunes script when iTunes is turned off. Make the change yourself.
  • Suffixes and prefixes were not always appended/prepended to the string
  • Newlines were not stripped from the beginning and end of script output
  • Clarified that the minimum refresh interval is still 5 seconds and that the maximum is 5 minutes...
  • Modified the SETI@Home script to allow for better configuration and several CPU's
  • Added a script to show the number of junk mail in Mail
  • Remove folders from the list of selectable scripts. Selecting a folder resulted in the program hanging in 1.2.0

After login yahoo's so called "new" beta ver of their messenger, I noted a neat thingy. It was showing me what I was listening to via iTunes, Much like an automatic feed. However I continue to suffer with yahoo's Issues and decided to leave their servers.. for good. I return to my old stand by ichat but I was missing the iTunes plug in. I was very lucky to have found iChatStatus. I'm home again.

Please please please update this for Tiger. It is an excellent piece of software. I really find it useful to use the applescript function to show the current iCal event/s saving me from remembering to change it when I go to work and giving others an idea when I'll be back.

It would be awesome if a developer could get ICS to work with iChat and AIM... Also if there could be a new release to get it to work so it works with iChat because the updates killed it... I would like to get it to work for being on away status... that way everyone can see whta im listening to even if they are on AIM.. Any developer out there up to the task? I hope so..

Even though clearly iChat AV in Tiger has this feature, I encourage the developer to continue with the development of this App. The built in iTunes status in the Tiger version of iChat kinda sucks. It shows a song playing even though iTunes is stopped/paused. iChatStatus worked better than this.

i still want an ichatstatus update for tiger, because i'd use it as my away message. one of my favorite features was being able to chat while being away at the same time...but now with tiger i can't do that. i want the songs that i'm listening to be displayed while i'm available and away.

this doesnt work in tiger but if you just want to display your current song ichat has that built in. drop down the little menu that has your current available message and you will notice a new option. its "Current iTunes Track". use it instead.

I don't think it's iTunes. I upgraded to Tiger and it stopped working. That was before the new iTunes release.
