[prMac.com] Toronto, Canada - MTA announced today the release of Tunesque, a free app designed to run exclusively on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion that greatly simplifies the process of searching the iTunes Store without having to launch either the iTunes or App Store apps.
Tunesque runs in the background, ready to be called into action at the click of a button. Its Spotlight-inspired interface makes searching the iTunes Store a breeze, and automatically displays results that include music, movies, TV shows, audiobooks, e-books, as well as iOS and OS X apps.
The results are shown in an easy-to-understand format that includes title, author and up-to-date pricing information in the local currency of the iTunes Store selected by the user (Tunesque automatically detects the user's default iTunes store location when first launched). A popover window is used to display additional information, including a product screenshot, description, and user rating.
Results can also be customized according to each user's preferences through an easy-to-use settings panel that also allows users to change the default iTunes store against which searches are performed and other user-interface parameters.
Tunesque is completely free; MTA does not collect any usage information and only receives a small sale commission from Apple at no cost to the end users.
The app is available for immediate download from MTA's Website, which also includes several full-resolution screenshots.
Founded in 2000 and based in Toronto, Canada, MTA designs and develops apps for various platforms, including iOS and OS X, in addition to providing publishing services for the Web.
