Emcee for iTunes and Spotify
By Sixth Corner
Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
Many Mac apps show what’s currently playing in your iTunes — often by rendering semi-transparent widgets over what you do. Those widgets distract you from work and never answer the question “What’s playing?” the moment you have it.
Emcee humbly shows the song in the menu bar.
The song name does not scroll, it stands still.
What's New in Version 2.0.2
Fixed a frequent crash.
Unfortunately Spotify no longer supports control with external apps, so we cannot show what’s playing there. We hope they will fix it.
Well executed, minimal menuling app
Excellent little app, love how minimal it is — nothing overdone about it.
The only thing I’d like to see in future updates are a bit more info when clicking on the menu icon, such as the album name, and maybe even album artwork.
Oh yeah, and this app is pretty solid, performance-wise. Hasn’t really shown any bugs.
