Muzzy is one of those apps that you may not even realize you need until you try it out. It's a sleek, stylish way to quickly view information about what you're listening to on iTunes. Anyone who uses iTunes regularly would benefit from this nifty app.
Once installed, Muzzy appears as a little musical note in the menu bar. It doesn't spring into action until you start listening to music in iTunes. Once the music starts playing, users can click on the icon to bring up a small square showing the current song's album art, the name of the song, and the time elapsed. Clicking on the square allows you to scrub back and forth in the song, and you can also view the track listing for the entire album. If you have lyrics saved for your songs, a little drop-down tray will display them once clicked. Muzzy also displays a small notification each time a new song comes on; this is less intrusive than the one provided by iTunes, and we preferred it. If you're a Last.fm user, Muzzy also supports scrobbling directly from the app. Our only complaint about Muzzy was that it didn't actually let us control our music; pausing, playing, or changing tracks still required a visit to iTunes.
Still, we were impressed with Muzzy's attractive interface and useful features, and we think it's a really nice complement to iTunes. Anyone who would like to know what iTunes is playing without having to stop what you're doing to look at iTunes will love Muzzy. Muzzy for Mac installs and uninstalls without issues.
Muzzy is a tiny and gorgeous iTunes companion that lives on your Menu Bar.
Made to be simple, Muzzy allows you to view your track's artwork along with its information (current time and name) in an effortless way: just click Muzzy's menu bar icon and you'll see!
Browsing all tracks within an album is easy as pie too! You just need click a button, and that's it! A list with all the songs of that album will be waiting for your command.
