What's New in Version 1.8.1
*** New in Version 1.8.1 ***
- Command-down/up now moves down/up an entire section (simple down/up moves down/up one track, like before)
- Speed improvements
- Fixed a crash when using iTunes to play remote/store previews
Well, I must admit, I didn't buy this app for it's main feature of searching the iTunes library for tracks - after all, Alfred does that already with the powerpack.
No, the main reason I got this was it's iTunes notifications and Last.fm scrobbling. It's a Growl notifications work with Growl 1.3 (Last.fm native app doesn't) and it displays the album art in the notifications (again, Last.fm doesn't).
As far as it goes for that, it's great. The search functionality is good but I've barely used it so can't comment as that is it's main selling point, I'll only give it 4 stars (because it's not what I'm using it for!) A small price to pay for decent, well supported Last.fm scrobbler that doesn't eat system resources like the official Last.fm client!
