This tiny, simple, and free application lets your Yahoo IM buddies see what songs you're listening to in iTunes. One thing we really like about YTunes is it will launch your iTunes jukebox as soon as you click its desktop shortcut. When you play a track, the title, artist, and album info pop up in the same spaces where your IM status usually appears. The program isn't highly configurable, but you can reorder the way in which the song information appears, and you also can tweak the transparency of the program's control panel. Even though YTunes only performs one job, we think folks who frequently chat with other audio junkies will find this add-on a nifty way to learn about new music.

YTunes allows you to share with you friends on Yahoo Messenger what you are listening to in iTunes. YTunes monitors iTunes and when the songs change YTunes will notify you with an optional pop-up window and change your status in Yahoo Messenger. With the pop-up control you also have the ability to advance to the next track, pause, or rewind to the previous tracks.
