Great app just horribly expensive. Try SmartMenu for iTunes $1 in the Mac AppStore. SmartMenu does only one thing... adds the track name to menu bar.

I too find the $20 for this app too expensive, especially considering what simple task this app does. There are a number of similar apps out there that are either far less expensive or even free, but of course it's completely up to the dev what he wants to charge for his product. I think $5 would be reasonable, but YMMV.

This is almost exactly what I've been looking for. The only change I'd welcome to make it perfect would be to show nothing at all in the menu bar except when iTunes is actually playing (rather than leaving the icon or app name up there after iTunes quits, as it does at the moment).

Better off using an app called 'iController' - it's free and scrolls for you - couple that with 'Dock Art' and it's iTunes heaven.

what's the point in using this on OS X 10.4 or even 10.3 for that matter?

Tiger has it's own iTunes controller dashboard widget which does all this. And if you're not on Tiger, you can simply use the slim controller window in iTunes itself...

This company makes lots of useless programs, and thinks people will buy them???

Another fine product from AlphaOmega Shovelware!

I can think of no fewer than three products that provide similar or identical functionality (SizzlingKeys, iScrobbler, and Synergy Classic) and two of those are free. (As a user of iScrobbler *and* Synergy Classic, I have too many freakin' menus as it is.)

Granted, this one will pop open a Google search for the song lyrics, but that's not saying much.

Compare the screenshot on this page: http://www.yellowmug.com/sk4it/
with the one provided below. Which piece of software seems to have more thought and time and work put into it? And which one is free? Curious, that.

As for the search for song lyrics, there are now freeware widgets that will do the trick.
