Great great application! If in future there will be 3 more shortcuts (like "search directly an artist", "track" and "album") it will be really perfect!

My favorite iTunes notifier app. Good hotkeys controls. Last.fm sync. Love how you can use Growl AND also hover over the menubar for built-in notifier pop-up. Only problem I have is occasionally (rarely) it can cause iTunes to stutter when loading a new track. Quitting & relaunching TunesArt resolves that. Haven't taken the time to troubleshoot further, so could just be me.

The only working lyrics fetcher, but it doesn't save lyrics to tracks automatically or manually. (Mac OS X 10.5.8 PPC, iTunes library on a WD network drive.)

I agree with the previous review. This is a really cool little companion app for iTunes. I love the layout and interface. I've been using this for a couple of days and the only issue I've noticed so far is that the album cover fetch feature seems a little inconsistent. For example, I'm currently listening to an 11-track album; TunesArt fetched the album cover for the first seven songs and has been unable to do so for songs 8-11. Still, I'm enjoying this app. Good stuff.

Love this app. I think this is the best iTunes "companion" app, free or paid. Super easy to setup and use and not bloated with a ton of useless features. I hope this update addresses the scrobbling issues with Last.fm. It felt redundant to be running this and the Last.fm app at the same time (but this one wasn't scrobbling correctly before). Note to developer: You removed the "Lock Cover" feature (or should I say preference) in the latest update(s). Any reason why? I found the feature to be essential. It totally prevents me from accidentally moving the cover. I know the feature is still "active" as my cover was still locked after updating even though the preference was missing. After updating I needed to adjust the cover and had to resort to moving my old prefs file out and letting the app create a new prefs file to do it. After I was done, I did move the LockCover key back to the new prefs file though. :-) I think you should put this pref back into the app. Just my two cents. Keep up the awesome work!

Does this support iPod scrobbling? I'm still looking for an app to replace the ancient and awful Last.fm Scrobbler to handle iPod scrobbling (properly) in addition to iTunes scrobbling.

This is the most awesome iTunes Controller / Cover App ever. I love it. Just installed version 1.0. Awesome work. TunesArt now supports Themes, if there would be iPod Scrobbling, Like.fm integration and a Last.fm love button, it would be the perfect app. Nothing more to say. Oh maybe: how could this app be free? :)

Just logged into Last.fm (in web browser) and I seem to be missing quite a bit of recently played music. TunesArt doesn't seem to be scrobbling correctly... Or should I say it's scrobbling sporadically. I went to the Last.fm tab in preferences, disabled scrobbling and then re-enabled it and TunesArt couldn't seem to connect to Last.fm. Could the last iTunes update (9.1) have affected scrobbling? Will have to use the real Last.fm app for now until this gets resolved. Still a great app, especially for free!

Laurent! You sound like someone who has been out of tech world for decades! What copying are you talking about? The option to use keyboard shortcuts? The option to display lyrics? The option to display coverart? The option to download artwork/lyrics? The option to use a similar coding language to create apps? The option to have an icon in the Menubar? The option to rate tracks? The option to display rating stars on the Menubar? The option to even create an iTunes plugin!? The option to have a search field to find songs? The option to have a matte-black background for windows? If these are your reasons Laurent, then, Webjib (developer of this app), you are guilty my friend! You are guilty of putting together such commonly found application functions in a simple, yet useful and appealing interface, and that too for free! You are guilty of not abiding by Laurent's illogical, senseless and baseless banter! You are guilty of even putting up your app on MacUpdate (coz CoverSutra had done that before you)! Laurent, if you dislike this app or the developer's style, do not use it! If you want to criticize it, please do, but with some facts or valid arguments. But I guess your arguments are the ones I mentioned above!

I've been a huge advocate of Cover Stream simply because the Album Cover display options, particularly the one where the cover shows the reflection. The best part about this is that when one moves this display, it slants either left or right side depending on where the use chooses to place the album cover on the screen. The downside of Cover Stream is that it takes up so much cpu resources :( along with itunes. TunesArt solves that esthetic issue for me, but it lacks the slant-effect as described above. If TunesArt could implement this in the future, I am definitely sold :) Great program nonetheless.
