Launch bar and others can do the same basic stuff. Switched when the developer reneged on the free updates for all version 2.x. Then switched v2.5 to be 3.0 to get out of her deal to make all 2.x updates free. The kicker...she herself said this would be wrong to do, then did it when the only other option was to actually make good and provide an update to 2.5 outside the mac app store. She clearly chose to stick it to customers, go back on her word, and in her own words "lie" and call this v3.

What happened with CoverSutra? Taken off the AppStore suddenly and not listed anymore on the developer's website.

The developer went to work at Apple. Here's what she wrote about CoverSutra: "CoverSutra and Xtrail are no longer available for sale and won’t get any more updates either. Both apps flopped and were also plagued with technical issues."

Version 3.3.1 is no longer working with iTunes 11.0.3. Well, the progress bar doesn't work and I'm getting some iTunes crashes and if there's one app that never crashes on me, it's iTunes. I contacted the developer and Sophia replied a few hours later saying she's now working on a fix for third-party code that seems to be causing the problem(s).

The program just works, looks pretty and is supported. I don't work for free and I don't expect the author does either. CoverSutra lets me define control keys, cover art, and lots more. I'm a happy customer.

This is the second time I've purchased CoverSutra. I bought it when it first came out, however many years ago. When I figured out I'd have to pay for the upgrade for Lion, I balked at first, like many of you. I tried all the other alternatives and Bowtie was the closest--I loved the thumbing capability. But Bowtie notoriously doesn't show the artwork properly, at least on my machine, 50% of the time. And when you rate a track, the stars don't reflect that immediately. CoverSutra just works. So, give me all the frownie faces you want. This woman is a fantastic graphic designer and CoverSutra is a joy to use.

I have version 2 and tried version 3 out but I think version 2 is much better mostly because when I'm not using iTunes the album cover on my desktop goes away, in version 3 it is always on my desktop plus now the album cover is way to big and there is no way to shrink the size of it. So I paid for something that does the same thing as version 2 but is uglier than version 2.

If you'd check the prefs you'd see you are able change the size of the album cover, medium (like version 2) and large.

I've been happy with this product, and with its evolution. The number of whining comments here is sad. Most seem derived from the Internet expectation of free and cheap, rather than quality and fairness. Being a developer is to be in business. Rent has to be paid. Pricing changes. This is true in the real world, and it is true in the virtual world. Yet far too many expect anything acquired on the Internet to be either free or very cheap. In any world, real or virtual, you get what you pay for. If you find a product that doesn't meet your expectations, be constructive in your comments. Far too many here seem rooted in bitterness or selfishness (or from competitors).
