2.0.2

Tiny floating toolbar controls iTunes.

Overview

iTTool is a very simple application that, to some users, fills a very needed niche. Ever been working on something, and find the need to quickly pause iTunes, or the want to switch tracks, but you don't feel like switch applications? That's what iTTool is for. It offers a tiny toolbar which floats over the top of your other applications, offering a quick one-click solution.

Why not just use the iTunes Dock Menu / Control Strip Menu?

If that's good enough for you, then by all means continue to use it. iTTool isn't for everyone, and a large number of people find it to be a waste of bandwidth, but a select group love the single click option. Using the menu requires either a click and hold or a control click to bring up, and then you have to scroll up and select the option you want. iTTool simplifies that to just one click.

iTunes shrinks down to a pretty small window on it's own already!

That's true, but that window doesn't float over other windows, and isn't nearly as small as iTTool's toolbar pallet. Even at it's largest expanded form, iTTool is only a 112x40 pixel window, compaired to the 130x50 window that iTunes has for it's minimum. iTTool's pallet can even be shrunken down to a measily 30x15 pixel window. That's an extreemly small space on your desktop. iTTool is a free program to use, and can be distributed as you please.

Pretty handy. Not as good as something like Synergy, but hey, it's also free. Great for controlling iTunes. Lots of options and preferences, as well as "shrinking" and transparency.

Good programme. Quick reactions and simple to use. Would be useful if you could see the time info of the track (length, elapsed time, remaining time)

Nice tool but it ate up 40-50% CPU, too much for a little utility.

This is a nice little program. It could use a little more improvement, but hey, it's free! So, I'm not complaining. The only real issue I was able to find (so far) is that the controls seem to be delayed when playing and importing music at the same time. However, once I'm finished importing music, the control become snappy again.
