BEST iTunes Companion App
I've been using TunesArt for several years now and it is still my favorite app for controlling iTunes. I have used many, many apps for this and TunesArt does the best of everything for me. I love being able to control music, volume, ratings, etc with shortcuts and I LOVE being able to pull up lyrics at anytime. Controls in the menubar are useful as well. The search feature is very slick.
Those complaining about the lyric fetching don't seem to understand that it wasn't legal or following Apple's guidelines. Would you rather have the app completely pulled and not available for sale, or have a compltely awesome app without that one nice feature? I'm happy that the developer is doing what he needs to so that he can continue this awesome app.
My only complaint is that updates take a little too long. Bug fixes are few and far between. With an app like this, updates are needed quickly when new versions of iTunes are released. Even with the latest build, the shuffle and repeat shortcuts do not work.
My go to App for a pleasing display of my current track. Flexible and consistently works. Nice set of features as well. Hope the developer keeps this going!
