Show everyone what you are listening to in iTunes.


Developer website: farhnware

phpTunes allows you to display the song you are currently listening to on iTunes by auto-uploading it to your PHP website.

You can implement it in any Web page with PHP. Register here through PayPal for $5 to remove the unregistered message that is overlaid after 20 minutes and unlock several display options.
