I’m presently evaluating a piece of software called Synergy, which puts nice buttons into the menubar, but also lets you view album art and song information in a little floating window you can position where you want it. It gets the art from the Internet and I presume it saves it because songs on the same album pop-up faster than the first time they’re accessed.
I like it in the bottom left corner.
Ben and Bryan were talking about it last night and I was talking about Clutter, which doesn’t do anything other than album art, but Clutter lets you drag albums around on your desktop in a real “stacks of CD’s” sort of way.
The novelty of Clutter did wear off rather quickly, however.
So far Synergy still has the smell of a rose, but it’s only been 12 hours.
Synergy for iTunes.
Clutter for the same.
