I love album artwork. Back in the day album covers were 12" square and some really were works of art. The CD cover was smaller, and for downloads the cover is no longer physical. But bands still put much effort into good album artwork and how better to display it while you're not working than with a screensaver? ScreenSleeves supports both iTunes and Spotify, detects which is playing and displays cover art and details for the currently-playing track in a neat, easy-on-the-eye-way (a la Front Row). As a screensaver it just kicks in if you leave your computer, or mouse to your hot corner. Control the track (next / previous) and volume without leaving the screensaver.
What's new in this version:
- Adds 3D rotated effect to album artwork, adjustable from flat to quite tilted
- Adds progress bar for current playing track switchable on/off
- To avoid rating being accidentally changed, adds option to require modifier key along with keys 1-5 to set rating
- Keys 1-5 to set rating only work if rating displayed
