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

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.

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).

Most of the people who's comments I've read should be really embarrassed for themselves. I think the developer explained her position thoroughly and fairly -- which is precisely what people always claim they want -- and then her reward for being so up-front is to be libelled (yes, libelled as in "legally actionable," some of you might want to look up the tests and then look in a mirror) on forums. If you don't want to upgrade, don't. Wow, you saved your self FIVE WHOLE BUCKS. Boy you showed HER. Why, you could buy half a Starbucks coffee with your savvy savings! As it happens, I won't be upgrading. Not because of anything Sophie did -- I just don't use the program much, and thus don't care to upgrade (though this "upgrade" is so cheap I consider it a trivial expense). I might come back to it someday, but I just don't spend much time in my iTunes music library as I used to (I've been more focused on video lately). The rest of you -- grow up, or at least interface with the real world of income and expenses a little more often.

Beautiful app! I paid full price for it a long time ago and it has been worth every cent to me. I also paid for the Mac App Store update because I wanted to encourage an independent developer to continue making quality products. At the new, low, price I am encouraging all of my friends to use it as a slicker interface to iTunes. People are saying that there were too few additions to the new versions to make them worth a paid upgrade... Others were financially crippled by the $4.99 upgrade fee that they HAD to pay for the upgrade... If the update is worth it to you, pay the upgrade fee. If it's not worth it to you, don't pay and don't upgrade and you can pretend that none of this ever happened. Either way, $4.99 for a great app is too petty an amount to cry about "broken promises" and switching to an "acceptable compromise".

you're a fool if you pay 19.99 for this garbage... especially given this particular developer's track record. she had trouble working with the folks at taptaptap, and now she's quickly taking her own company down the drain with her broken promises and hostile attitude toward *paying customers*. but if you simply *must* deal with this hostile developer, don't be dumb and buy it here for 19.99... go to the mac app store and purchase it for 4.99. beware - if you buy it here, you are going to get charged again in the future to upgrade, no matter what she 'promises'. if you're looking for a solid, *free* alternative from a developer who is not openly hostile to their customers (as sophia definitely is), check out bowtie. note: i am not associated with bowtie, but have found it to be an acceptable replacement, especially given the 0.00 price... that shows me this developer is more concerned about software than money!

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.
