myTunesControl is a menubar remote control for iTunes and allows to play/skip thru your library and playlists and also allows to fast search for items. It can be completely operated by keyboard.

myTunesControl started as a simple test-project to learn something about the ScriptingBridge and I hate doing things theoretically. I'd rather create something you really can touch and use. And you can use myTunesControl!Version for 10.5.8 available here.

Works perfectly. I have 30.000+ tunes in my library and it loads them quickly. Could call it remote ham and eggs for all I care.

Good job.

Developer, you can't just use words any way you want and expect that to change their meaning for your convenience. For instance, you cannot call myTunesControl a "menu bar remote control" if IT IS NOT REMOTE! The New Oxford American Dictionary (developer of Apple's Dictionary.app) defines 'remote control' as "control of a machine or apparatus 1) FROM A DISTANCE 2) BY MEANS OF SIGNALS TRANSMITTED BY A RADIO OR ELECTRONIC DEVICE" [my emphasis & numbering]. Does myTunesControl meet those two conditions? No? Not even one of them? No? That's OK, your app description works just as well if you remove the FRAUDULENT word "remote" and call it simply "a menubar iTunes controller" - just like the other 37 such apps. And word to the wise (and you too), if you don't change your app description immediately, I suspect the bona fide iTunes remote control apps' developers will gang up and blacklist you in short order.

I won't get into whether the correct spelling is 'menu bar' (BAD) or 'menubar' (GOOD), or whether it should be capitalized (NO), because Apple itself (which invented it) is just as confused as the rest of us - on their website they spell it both ways.

Oh - just retired and now to much time to waste. Must be hard :-))
Let me guess: ex-teacher or prof?

Sorry - in my small uneducated world a remote is a tool that helps to handle something without directly touching it, I don't care if this is done by signals or little monkeys with cute hats…

I better not think about the wrong grammar and use of words in this sentences - but I've got better do to, writing sweet little working apps for example, or living, having fun - you should try this too…


Sorry, but there had been a little voice in my ear, forcing my to write this answer and I really could not resist :-)

Geoprof,

You should look up "troll" in your dictionary, as well as "literal-minded."

And your usage of capital letters is particularly endearing.

The developer's usage of "remote control" is absolutely justified. Just because a dictionary, which is beholden to old-world updating techniques, doesn't contain the most current definition or usage of a term doesn't make said usage incorrect or FRAUDULENT, to use your diction.

This application allows you to "control" a virtual jukebox from a distance, or "remotely." Since we discuss the computer desktop in terms of area, the idea of "distance" is indeed apt.

Computer desktop. That must really make your brain hurt. It's not a desk at all!

And maybe you don't know how computers work, but indeed, when you trigger an action in a program, the circuits inside the computer do transmit electrical signals that cause things to happen. Magic, I tell you! And utterly within the narrow definition of "remote control" that you understand!

Wow!!

And lastly, "menu bar" is a much more elegant construct than the neologistical "menubar." Both are valid.

Invest in imagination, grace and charm, mon ami. They're valuable things.

P.S.

Did you even try the application?
