TunesBar Menu Extension for iTunes

TunesBar Menu Extension for iTunes

Posted November 24, 2008 at 11:59am by iClarified
Thoughtful Tree Software has introduced TunesBar 2.0, an iTunes extension for the Mac's Menu Bar. Using TunesBar, users can quickly and easily glance in their menu bar to see what the title, artist, or album of the currently playing iTunes track is. This menu bar item is configurable in terms of which of these 3 pieces of info are displayed, and in what order, and the text is also dimmed when iTunes is not playing.

When TunesBar is in the menu, finding out the name, artist, or album of iTunes' current track takes no more effort than moving looking up to the top of the screen. Users can choose to show any combination of this track information, in any order they prefer.

When iTunes is paused, TunesBar will dim, which will let users see visually the state of their music, which is especially helpful when the volume is low or if there are other sources of music in the area. For added convenience, a smart Play/Pause menu option has been added to the very top of the menu.

Just as in all other Thoughtful Tree Software applications, TunesBar provides an extra set of features to provide users with the most quality experience: Firstly, there is a built-in support menu for sending feedback, bug reports, or feature requests directly from inside the application. Also included is its ability to automatically check for its own updates. Finally, in the menu-bar menu, there is an option to set TunesBar to conveniently launch when a user logs in.

Feature highlights include:
* Set TunesBar to show artist, album, and/or track name
* Position any or all of these 3 items in any order
* Dims the displayed text when iTunes is paused
* Quickly pause or play iTunes from inside the TunesBar's menu

Pricing and Availability:
TunesBar 2.0 is available for $19.99 (USD) for a single-user license. Also available is a Family Discount of 25% off when purchasing 4 or more licenses.
