And a utility to back up to your iPod.
Makes a change from iTunes controllers!
It has been given a major overhaul and now features a color screen that displays the album art of the currently playing song - just like a real iPod. As before it also displays the name and artist of the current song but now also shows the track number and shows if the song is playing or paused.
You can also now switch shuffle on or off using the middle (select) button and the current shuffle status is displayed in the top left of the iPod's screen.
A Complete list of new features A color screen with album art, Switch Shuffle on and off directly from PodTunesColor Shuffle icon indicates if shuffle is on or off Icon in the top left of screen now indicates whether iTunes is playing or paused Track numbers (eg. 7 of 645) in upper left of screen Switch the backlight on and off (Menu button) Tooltips More readable font Improved graphics
Let me know if you like PodTunes (or if you don't) as I am open to suggestions and feedback.
Look out for a new version of PodTunes coming soon!
New features include:-
A colour screen Album artwork on the screen, Switch shuffle on and off directly from PodTunes, and more!
Look out for it here or on VersionTracker.
Click play/pause, previous, next - just like you would on your real iPod. The name of the currently playing track, album and artist also appears in the iPod's display.
There are plenty or widgets that do this, and probably one or two that are in the shape of an iPod, but this is an actual application that stays on your desktop.
This is my first project, written using Applescript Studio. I'd be interested in hearing feedback.
