Playwatch-Ticker is a handy iTunes controller which will display the song information of whatever track is playing in a little ticker, right in your menu bar. Playwatch-Ticker provides a quick and easy way to view what song is playing without even having to press any buttons or leaving the active application.
Playwatch-Ticker gives you full control with assignable "Hot-Keys" and remote-control-buttons.
In contrast to Playwatch, the big brother of Playwatch-Ticker, the information displayed is limited to Track-Name, Artist and Album-Name. Playwatch-Ticker is able to display information for any type of media. Playwatch-Ticker works great while watching Videos or listening to Internet-Radio. When listening to Internet-Radio, the stations-name and the name of the current track is displayed.
See what is playing on iTunes just from the corner of the eye.
Playwatch-Ticker gives you full control over iTunes with "Hot-Keys". Important iTunes functions, like Play/Pause, Previous/Next, etc. can be assigned to any key combinations you like. Moreover, controlling iTunes can also be done from the buttons in the menubar.

What's New in Version 1.0.7
Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) maintenance release.
Solid App, just one thing...
This is a good app, it just needs to be able to dynamically expand and contract to fit the size of what is displayed in it. I hate having to wait for it to scroll over when I have a long song name, so I have to set it to be really big, but then it takes up an unnecessarily large amount of space when a song with a short name is playing. :-/ It would be nice if I could set a maximum size, so Playwatch-Ticker could shrink when the track name and artist do not take up the whole space, and only scroll over when the track information does not fit in the maximum space. I hope this is added, but Playwatch-Ticker is still a very handy iTunes addition that i would recommend if you want quick and easy access to iTunes!
Doesnt work with mavericks
Doesn’t update the song, just displays the song that was playing when you started the ticket.
