"Should be added to Apple TV!"

April 03, 2007  |  By scifiguy

 |  Version: JewelCase 2.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This has always been one of my favorite visualizers. I was really happy when it was finally updated. Works great! Apple should buy this, like Coverflow, and make it an AppleTV screensaver!

"Now works with MacIntel's"

February 17, 2007  |  By johnharbo

 |  Version: JewelCase 2.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I love this program. Very visually appealing. Of all the Mac Programs that I showed to my Windows PC friends, this generates the most envious gasps.

Like Coverflow, Apple ought to buy this company and incorporate it into iTunes. It's that good.

This version is the first that works with the new Intel based Macs. It also fixes a bunch of bugs such as spinning out of control.

With the improvments, it's shifted from donation ware to shareware, but it is well worth the price for all the eye-candy satisfaction it brings.

I highly recommend it.

"Not iTunes 7 compatible (fully)"

October 31, 2006  |  By numbr0072

 |  Version: JewelCase 1.8

Summary

You guys are right. Spotty performance with iTunes 7. Sometimes the disc spins out of control, other times it won't spin at all. Hopefully they'll release a (Universal binary!) version that's fully 7 compatible.

"Superb in its Simplicity"

December 24, 2005  |  By zsaurin

 |  Version: JewelCase 1.8

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This visualizer is exactly what I have been looking for. This is something that enables you to see what is playing at any instant - graphically and textually. It is also plasma friendly by continually rotating the image and having settings that mean the text appears in different places. This is great if you use your Mac as a media centre.

The fact that it doesn't try and fetch the art for me is a bonus, not a minus point. There are already programs that can do that and so simply using the artwork you have makes this very reliable.

The only reason I wouldn't give this 5 stars is beacuse there are a couple of little bugs. These bugs are easily remedied by restarting iTunes which while not a big deal take something away.

The bugs I have encountered so far are

- will not enter full screen mode after settings have been adjusted.
- the CD animation occasionally stops.

"Excellent"

November 06, 2005  |  By hujaza

 |  Version: JewelCase 1.8

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I'm so pleased with this plug-in it's surprising! I mean, hey, it's just a visualizer for iTunes, but I find myself switching from my work over to iTunes when a song is about to end just so I can watch the jewel case zoom away and the new one appear. Smooth!

By the way, you'll need to have the album artwork already associated with your mp3 for it so show correctly, otherwise you get the solid color album artwork. It doesn't automatically fetch it for you, which I like, because that doesn't always work out (as with other programs). I'm glad also for all the great options. Way to go!

Another nifty bonus: the installer automates everything for you -- thanks!

"Suggestion - support for other character sets?"

May 14, 2005  |  By brothergen

 |  Version: JewelCase 1.7.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Love this little gem - it does what it says extremely well, is so easy to use that no documentation is necessary, and at an unbeatable price. Unfortunately the majority of my favourite music is Japanese, and the Kanji and Kana characters come up as "?????". If it weren't for this flaw (and it's only a flaw because iTunes itself supports non-Roman character sets natively, which makes the absence obvious and jarring), I would give it all five stars and would definitely use it often enough to send a donation.

"Great addition to iTunes"

May 04, 2005  |  By Brussels' sprout

 |  Version: JewelCase 1.7.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
If you are using visual effects with iTunes, this is GREAT.
I have a computer in my living room with most of my CDs digitalized in iTunes. Now I really enjoy listening to random lists and being able to see the cover, title and musician on the screen. And in a beautiful way ! With style ! A la Mac !
One little addition I would like very much : the possibility to display the year and comments about the song at the bottom of the screen (that's where I haved typed the musicians' names of my jazz songs).
