Many Mac apps show what’s currently playing in your Music — often by rendering semi-transparent widgets over what you do. Those widgets distract you from work and never answer the question “What’s playing?” the moment you have it.

Emcee humbly shows the song in the menu bar.

The song name does not scroll, it stands still.


Release Notes:

• Support for Music app in macOS Catalina
• Despite the name change, still works with iTunes in earlier macOS versions
• Better Dark theme apperance
• Bug fixes and performance improvements (why not)

Well executed, minimal menuling app - Excellent little app, love how minimal it is — nothing overdone about it. The only thing I’d like to see in future updates are a bit more info when clicking on the menu icon, such as the album name, and maybe even album artwork. Oh yeah, and this app is pretty solid, performance-wise. Hasn’t really shown any bugs.

I guess it’s more for iTunes - You can’t skip songs in Spotify, or star them, or even bring up the Spotify window. Also, it frequently disconnects from Spotify completely. Don’t get this if you want it for Spotify.
