This is a fairly neat little program. However, it could use some work. First, it needs to have scroll bars. As it is, the only way to scroll the window down is by selecting downwards, or using the arrow keys. Not my favorite method to scroll through large amounts of text. Second, it seems to have some problems with songs that have strange characters in their names. For example, I got the current track from itunes, which was "Shine (YZ250F Mix)" by "Newsboys", and it gave me this error: AppleScript Error sh: -c: line 1: syntax error near unexpected token `(' sh: -c: line 1: `curl http://www.seeklyrics.com/lyrics/Newsboys/Shine-(YZ250F-Mix).html' (2) But overall, I'd say this program has alot of potential. I look forward to future updates!

I recommend going back to version 1.8, which can be found at http://returnlyrics.netfirms.com, because I'm not working on this anymore and I admit 1.9 is a bit buggy. Sorry I don't know why.

Comment by Anonymous : Uh - ACP Web Services. Then you don't need an app to do this - you get your lyrics RIGHT off your Services menu - straight away with no further steps needed. It's free too. (http://macupdate.com/info.php/id/15073) (6/3/2005, Version: 1.6) *********** : Uh, I don't think so. Each version gets better and better. There is now a simple interface with tho buttons: basicaly; source and search. You set the source, click the search button and in seconds,the lyrics appead in the attached screen. Neat, fast and I'm sure the devloper will find a way for me to get a higher % of "hits." A keeper. JB

I think full disclosure is necessary, you should state that you are the developer of ACP Web Services.

When I clicked on the Download Now link, I got directed to a page that said: "Directly downloading images is not permitted on the Netfirms FREE plan. If you are the owner of this site, either ensure that this image is embedded in a web page, or upgrade to one of the Netfirms premium plans." But then I just clicked in the address field in Safari and hit return, and the zip file downloaded quickly. Go figure.

The site I hosted it on requires that the last page you visited be http://returnlyrics.netfirms.com/* so that's why return worked.

No review as it does not function properly yet. - seems to have problems with non US number formats ("Can't make "1.4" into type number. (-1700)" while checking for updates); - please name the the song/artist fields or at least add a "clear" button; - not resizable window and no scroll bar? big problem... Keep it up!

I just tried this on my 10.2 Mac and it looked different and nothing worked, so if you have 10.2 that's the problem. I know my description said 10.2 but that's what Xcode said it would be, so I changed it to 10.3. The change will be visible when the new version is posted.
