SmashTunes is a very nice menu bar item that lets you control iTunes as well as Spotify. It displays information about the currently playing song as well and can also display artwork.

SmashTunes also makes your media keys work with iTunes and Spotify better. When you use them for iTunes they will control iTunes. When you use them for Spotify they will control Spotify. Either app will be paused when the other starts playing. No more sound mixing. No more manual stop action of either app is required!

- iTunes and Spotify control from the menu bar
- Song information in the menu bar
- Artwork display
- Shortcut key support for all control functions
- Media key support
- Song ratings
- Direct playlist selection


Release Notes:

- improved display of track info in the menu bar
- optimized shuffle and repeat
- tries harder to find track artwork

Version 2.2.2
Review by BillNotWilliam

Does what it says - RE: Version 2.2.2 I’ve been using a different iTunes control program for many years…that has been abandoned. I found SmashTunes by luck. I reallly wanted several simple things. A. The ability to play any of my playlists, from a menu. B. The ability to at least stop and start the music with a hotkey. C. I didn’t want to have to swich into iTunes to do the above. I wish it did more things and was more flexible and customizable…but hey, it does EXACTLY what i NEED so I’m happy to have purchased it. When there are upgrades I’ll enjoy them. Thanks SmashBits.
