May 27, 2009 in iTunes
[prMac.com] Stockholm, Sweden - Snarb.tk today announced the immediate availability of Cover Stream 2.6, an update to their popular iTunes controller that extends iTunes Cover Flow to the desktop. The update (Euro 14.95, or free to existing customers) is now available for download.
Feature-rich, beautiful and unobtrusive, Cover Stream lets you control, browse and search your music, without leaving your work. Key features include desktop cover flow, a powerful search filter, player notifications, Last FM support, hotkeys, visuals and a fullscreen jukebox mode.
Cover Stream 2.6 adds a new, sexy popup control panel to the desktop status bar. The panel gives you full control over iTunes playback. It also lets you see the artwork of the current track and set track rating. You can click on the artwork or jewel case to toggle the visibility of the browser window. The control panel appears when hovering with the mouse over Cover Stream's status bar icon and replaces the old player controls available from the actual status bar menu.
The update also brings improved podcasts support. Full episode descriptions are now displayed when hovering with the mouse over a podcast in the songs browser. The new version also adds Feedback Reporter, a quick and easy way to send troubleshooting reports from within the application. Feedback Reporter will automatically retrieve crash logs and other relevant system information.
Cover Stream 2.6 also adds an improved launcher utility. The new background helper makes sure the latest version of Cover Stream is launched when opening iTunes, for users who keep multiple copies of Cover Stream on their hard drive. The update also fixes a few minor glitches in earlier versions and allows shuffle in Jukebox mode - Cover Stream's popular song queuing feature.
