This has been a long time in the making, but has been oh so worth it! Bowtie simply has a unique philosophy of end user customizability that makes it gorgeous to use. In fact, Ecoute took this philosophy and even posted up instructions on how to convert Bowtie themes into Ecoute themes. Bowtie is the original! It may not have the largest feature set or any fancy display with which to interact with your library, but it fits a nice niche that I'm sure many will appreciate. If you need the library interactivity, check out Cover Stream or CoverSutra. If you want a standalone player that can access the iTunes library, check out Ecoute or Everplay.
