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.

I actually stopped using this because of the stutter. It was getting on my nerves too often, almost every song change would cause it. I didn't try to troubleshoot it either, but perhaps it's when it writes either the lyrics or cover art to the track?

I just did some real quick "troubleshooting." It stutters when I have it set to fetch and automatically save lyrics. I turned that off and no stutter.

This problem is an iTunes problem, and I can't do anything for this problem :( It occurs when lyrics or cover art are saved into track. The only way to get rid of that is to disable auto-save of lyrics/artwork.

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.)

Awesome piece of software, with a lot a functions; really complete. I've tried almost everything out there, and imo this is the best. Thank you to the developer!

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.

Thanks Warren for your review. About your album art issue, could you tell me if your album got all ID3 tags filled (artist, title, album...) ? I'm using Amazon services for fetching artworks, and sometimes their servers are not able to answer before a timeout I've defined. Maybe this is the reason, except if you experienced same issue with same album another day ?

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!

Thanks for your support :) "Lock cover" setting is still present, but was removed from main menu. You'll find it when right clicking on the desktop album cover.

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.

I've planned to add iPod scrobbling in next major version. I've already something working pretty well, just need to debug and beta test.

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? :)
