What is Smart Tunes for Mac

Smart Tunes is a small tool to monitor, manage, save and restore state of iTunes application from macOS status menu as iTunes currently lacks these basic features.

Great little iTunes menu bar app that has a load of features. It costs way less than a coffee from Starbucks! I like the font used in the display of the song in the menu bar together with an icon of the album cover. I had been searching for this type of app for some time now. I am using it in Big Sur without a hitch. Hats off to the developer! :)
