Really like this! Especially with the remote function.

One small thing that bothers me sometimes is that it auto-launches itunes when you open it. I sometimes use this just to sleep/shutdown my mac while I have pandora or last.fm streaming, and I'm not actually using itunes.
It would be nice to have an option in the preferences to turn off auto-launch for itunes.

Otherwise, great work!

SUCH A GREAT APPLICATION !!!

Works as described. The developer was thinking about making it a widget - please don't wast your time as everyone would use the "Quit automatically" option which doesn't suit a widget. I wish the developer would create a sister application which would be able to quit any application after a certain amount of time. This would be especially useful for quitting VLC and the likes when listening to internet radio that iTunes doesn't support. Many, many thanks.

I decided to develop and release such a "sister application" myself - App QuitTimer.

With iTunesShut 4.8 you can use your own AppleScripts. That means, that you can use a simple line of AppleScript code to quit any application you wish.

Open AppleScript Editor and type for example: tell application "VLC" to quit

Then in iTunesShut choose "AppleScript" from the pop-up button and then choose your script.

That's all!

Yes, but you will need a script for every application on your computer. With App QuitTimer you can quit any application - instead of having multiple scripts.

No, you don't need multiple scripts. You can use one script for all your apps you want to quit.

For example:

tell application "iTunes" to quit

tell application "Mail" to quit

and so on …
