Just what I was looking for... something that shows the album art for iTunes radio. And it work with iTunes 11!

I wish there was an option to resize the widget and an option to hide the star ratings.

Sadly this hasn't been updated in a long time, and there appears to be an issue between versions of itunes/os. For me and many others this widget does nothing. It says "iTunes not playing" even when it is. It does absolutely nothing even when clicking the buttons.
It looks to be a nice little dashboard app, and has a very good selection of sources. Hopefully the author will fix the breaks, and add the ability to search additional sources if the initial source fails.

I have seen a lot of widgets/programs that do this so it's nothing new but out of all of them i would say this one is the best and my personal favourite. Great job

Hey great widget!

I have only one request: in the next version it would be awesome if there was an option to have the widget automatically import the album art in to the whole album as soon as the song is played it would make it so much better!

Thanks!

The best cover finder. I love it! (best also when you get outside the dashboard with the developer mode on)

Things I would like to have on nexts releases:

- Link to the next or prior image o more area in case of mor eimage posibilites found
- Delete current cover option (I think is the prohibited icon but doesn't work for me)
- Search event when no album name
- A rollover option to search in other engine instead to change from the backside option panel
- Get the most bigger (near square) from the list of found image as the default

So keep it up! Thanks a lot for your work I appreciate it.

Thanks for the comments. Some of your suggestions are great such as improved interface for selecting which places to download album art from and also deleting/replacing album art.

I will definitely add that todo list for future releases. As for automatically adding art to iTunes, a number of people have suggested this, but I'm not too comfortable with that. I'd rather not do that because I don't want to be messing about with someone's music collection, especially because the artwork quality can't be guaranteed to be accurate

I think this widget rocks. It is very useful.

But I have a question: This widget doesn't copy the albumart to the songs, which are in my ipod. Is this a bug, or a barrier of Apple?

Let me say a thing, first.
I hate Dashboard.
But this widget push me to use Dashboard. It is the only widget i use every day. Simple. Effective. Multipurpose.
Wonderful the Add Artwork to iTunes option. Not limited to the current song but, with an elegant overlay on the cover, it presents you an option to add the cover to the song currently playing or to all the songs in the Album.
Options to select the fetch artwork site (good choices)
And Option to drive iTunes too (mouse and hotkeys).
All this in a so small size. And...free.
Great job, indeed.

tnx so much.
