i am student and i've tested DesktopLyrics at a friend's Macbook. Of all the apps, utilities, and programs I have ever used, this one takes the cake for highest level of perfection. Somebody has totally obsessed over this, getting everything right, down to the smallest detail, as if the fate of the universe depended upon it. If you are at all tech-oriented, you are going to be impressed with the level of detail and sheer amount information they have managed to pack into DesktopLyrics. It's of course far more information than you are likely to need, perfectionism is not a game for the practical.

Use it. Love it. Recommend it. Works great. Excellent developer support. A lot of lyric apps work for a while but go south over time. This one has the feature set I need, and it gets the updates that keep it working year to year. 5 stars.

Being able to read the lyrics as the song plays adds a whole new dimension to your musical experience! You can understand lyrics that you could never hear clearly before or even hear at all. The developer has proven himself to be very responsive to suggestions and requests for help. He continually adds valuable functions and enhancements to an already wonderful and very modestly priced application. What it does so simply and effectively is of such value that you'd think that iTunes would have long ago made this applcation an integral part of its software. Songs have a new found joy, directness and vitality when their words leap out at you on your screen, and when you have numerous controls to tweak the way they appear. But you also have a lot of control over how you present the album covers on your screen. In fact DesktopLyrics brings back the focus on album covers and artwork, that was sadly lost when Apple somewhat shockingly retired their much loved "cover flow” feature to display album artwork. Overall, DesktopLyrics is so valuable, so much fun and such a great enhancement, that you’ll be sorry you didn’t discover it long ago!

I have been using DesktopLyrics from day 1 and can certainly recommend it. I perform shows singing with accompaniment on my MacBook. I display iTunes smart playlist on one side with DesktopLyrics on the other. I read the lyrics while I sing, unless I have memorized them. Although the auto page turning works well, I do not have the confidence to use it and prefer to have all the lyrics on one page. Therefore I do spend a lot of time shaping my lyrics pages, with different size fonts and the tools allow me to do so. I depend entirely on DesktopLyrics for my shows, and would be lost without it. If I could suggest one feature, it would be to be able to have a tool that says something like "Display all lyrics on one page". This feature may be present, but I might not have figured out how to do it, without much editing. One comment on finding lyrics (on a Mac anyway). Just do a search such as 'lyrics It's a wonderful world', and choose from any of the number of sites that has the lyrics. For a specific version, try search 'lyrics It's a wonderful world louis armstrong'. A great app. Thanks Julian.

Seems to do what it does well, but I for one prefer to have my lyrics in a window rather than on the desktop. Some alternatives for this are Cover Version (a visualizer) and the app called simply Lyrics.
