Everplay merges iTunes with Last FM
November 17, 2009 in iTunes
[prMac.com] Stockholm, Sweden - Snarb.tk today announced the immediate availability of Everplay Public Beta, a preview of the successor to their popular iTunes controller Cover Stream. A light weight, stand alone media player, Everplay plays music from your iTunes music library as well as from Last FM online radio services. It lets you browse, search and play your iTunes music library and playlists in one simple, beautiful and easy-to-navigate Cover Flow window. All this without launching iTunes. Play count and other iTunes metadata is automatically updated as soon as iTunes is launched by Everplay's background daemon.
In addition to the standard media player features, Everplay also lets you create playlists on-the-fly using Everplay's song queuing feature (Jukebox mode). Other notable features not provided by iTunes include visual player notifications, global hotkeys, a mini controller on the desktop, Growl support, speech announcements, and a fullscreen mode with album browsing capabilities. Of course, Everplay also supports the Apple Remote.
The really cool part about Everplay, however, is that it's fully integrated with Last FM web and radio services. It lets you scrobble your music to Last FM, ban and love tracks, share music with your friends, tag songs or leave an artist or user a shout in their Last FM shoutbox.
Better yet, Everplay lets you listen to personalized radio based on your musical preferences, tags, Last FM recommendations or similarity with a certain artist. You can even listen to your friends and other users online music library, or explore your musical match neighbourhood.
With Everplay's Similar Artists mode, you can also use your iTunes music library as the starting point for discovering new great music based on similarity with your favorite artists. Simply double click an album in the cover flow view to start streaming similar artists from Last FM - the world's largest online music catalogue.
Everplay requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later and iTunes 7.5 or later. Last FM web services requires a free Last FM account. Radio services might require a Last FM subscription (for residents outside of the US).
Everplay is the successor to Snarb.tk's popular iTunes controller Cover Stream. The public beta release is a free, 2 MB download available at Snarb.tk. The sharp version is expected in January 2010.
