Smart Tunes overview

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.

    • Computer lock/unlock
    • User session activation

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! :)
