Very good and does what it says on the tin.
However, be aware that it also tries to send your info to ad based sites without your permission.

Here is a shot of my Little Snitch rules:

As you can see, there are 6 rules pertaining to the scrobbling features, 1 for the app itself (update), but 4 for other sites.

Whether they're all spam related I don't know, but I don't want ANY of my info being sent to a doubleclick site for instance.

In short, great app if you remember to block the dodgy behaviour with Little Snitch first.

For my "donation", the application works, well, and has functionality others in the category don't offer to my experience (streaming Internet radio playlist). Excellent support from the author as well. Free means free for the basics, donation for the advanced functionality. Pretty straight forward in my book.

Free means free. If there is any charge for any functionality, the app is not free. Free means free. Please reclassify this application.

This is donation ware, they don't have a category for it so I just set it to free because the basic functionality is free which is most of it.

This is a great little, unobtrusive app for iTunes. The only problem is, of course, that iTunes has to run to play music... I wish Apple would disconnect the music playing code from the UI code and track management code.

Love the simplicity of this app.

Thank you so much for making this great app.
It's the (almost) perfect replacement for my old favorite, iMote that no longer works properly under Leopard.

The only think I would like to see added?
An option to rename the name that shows on the menu, when iTunes isn't playing.
"iTunesMenu" is just too big for my screen.

As an example, my "Status Menu Order:" is simply "♫".
Now, If I could do that for those occasions when iTunes isn't being used, that would be perfect.

Another great app by Gecko. Using this really simplifies any music being played through iTunes, and it also looks very smooth up in the toolbar.

No longer will I have to actually open up iTunes every time that I want to skip a track or two. And with hotkeys, I don't even have the drop down the menu.

Thanks for a quality application. It's worked wonders so far.
