"Several iTunes tools in one!"

January 11, 2008  |  By timhood

 |  Version: GimmeSomeTune 3.5


I downloaded this program after searching for a menubar iTunes controller. When I learned that this program is a menubar controller, album art downloader, lyrics downloader and can update your iChat status with your current song, plus it integrates with last.fm and can even work with the Apple Remote, I wondered why anyone would bother with downloading all those tools separately. I can attest that every feature has worked without issue (I don't have the Apple Remote, so that's the only thing I haven't tried). I'm especially impressed with having my missing album art and lyrics automatically loaded as I listen to my songs.


It does a poor job at washing my dishes. Seriously, that's probably the only thing this Swiss Army knife of an iTunes utility can't do.

"I wish it would work!"

March 02, 2007  |  By plain*clothes

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.

this looks like a great app, I just can't get it to work! I set up my hot keys, but they weren't working. so I quit the app and tried to restart, but it wouldn't show up. I dumped the prefs and tried again -- no luck. I used the uninstaller, then reinstalled -- still nothing. so I tried starting it from the disc image and viola! so I copied it back to my apps folder, logged out, logged back in and it worked... until I tried to restart it again.

for now, I'm back to ByteController, which drops out on me very rarely. not as well appointed, but it does it's job.
