Playwatch is a handy iTunes controller which will display the song information of whatever track is playing in a little ticker, right in your menu bar. Playwatch provides a quick and easy way to view what song is playing without even having to press any buttons or leaving the active application.

• Playwatch gives you full control with "Hot-Keys" and remote control buttons.
• Displays Cover-Art in many different and appealing ways.
• Uses nice transition effects during track changes.
• Ratings for tracks and albums can be set and displayed.
• Track lists can be arranged to perfectly match the design of the Cover-Art.

You can freely specify what kind information you want to see in the ticker. Normally title, artist and album name is displayed. Playwatch displays information for any type of media. It works great while watching Videos and especially when listening to Internet-Radio.

Playwatch has a wide array of preferences which let you customize the size, colors and font. There is also a small progress bar at the bottom of the ticker that indicates how far along in the song you are, and an optional play/pause, rewind, fast forward button that can be displayed in the menu bar.

See what is playing on iTunes just from the corner of the eye.

During Cover-Art display you can see the tracks belonging to the album. Tracks can be easily chosen for playback by clicking with the mouse. Ratings for tracks and albums can be set from the Cover-Art display right away. Ratings are immediately stored within your iTunes Library. Even "Half-Star" ratings are possible.

Playwatch offers many ways to change the look of the Cover-Art and how the Track-List is displayed. You can change font, size, position, fore- and background colors. With just a few clicks you can change the look of the Track-List to perfectly match the Cover-Art.

Playwatch gives you full control over iTunes with "Hot-Keys". Important iTunes functions, like Play/Pause, Previous/Next, etc. can be assigned to key combinations you like. Besides Hot-Keys you can use the remote control buttons from the menubar or the ones from the Cover-Art display.

Review by Sad Sad

Nice (concept) but bad development! - This developer Joachim Deelen offered me a fix for a bug this app has 8 months ago (May 2013), but nothing has been done. Quote from one of his emails: "I'm going to fix this within the next two or three weeks. Then it will take another week or two before it will be accepted by Apple and available on the App Store! Again: I'm sorry for all the inconvenience this has caused and I thank you for your patience!" Really? On top of it 2, operating systems has passed (since Lion) and it hasn't had any update. $5.00 and time gone to waste with this app.
