ScreenSleeves detects which music player is playing, and displays cover art and details for the currently-playing track.

ScreenSleeves displays the album cover for the currently-playing song with some details, even lyrics, in some neat, easy-on-the-eye ways (it has a number of themes). Perfect for down-time or parties.

Important Note Screensleeves has a long history as a screensaver. Security changes within MacOS Mojave have made it impossible to continue as a true screensaver (which is a system plugin). The solution has been to put ScreenSleeves within its own 'standalone' app. This has other advantages (such as a small floating window when not in full-screen mode) and is something that users have asked for throughout its history. This standalone version replaces previous versions which are now unsupported and will not run on Mojave. It has a free trial, after which requires a licence key.

Support for iTunes, iTunes internet streams, Swinsian, Spotify, Airfoil Satellite, Snowtape, Ecoute, Rdio, Radium, Audirvana Plus, Hermes (Pandora client). Screensleeves detects which is playing.
