I really love this app. A very nice but simple theme is Minimal see http://www.infinisedesign.net/downloads/view/minimal . One click is Play/Pause, double click is next song, three clicks is previous song.

If you look carefully in the MacThemes website forums, you'll find quite a few Bowtie themes for download.

Click on "Forum" on the right top corner of the home page and then on "Mac Releases".

See also Iconpaper for Bowtie themes (and other eye-candy).

As most of those themes are hosted in DeviantArt, do a search in this website too.

i love this app!
the themes are amazing and its free!

Wanted to try this but the themes are no longer available for download!

Great display of your iTunes artwork! One problem though, I accidentally hid the bowlet and I can't get it to show up again! Anyone know how to change the options of bowtie without the dock or menu bar icon?

Looks good, but not "Love This Track". I'll use the first app outside of iScrobbler that's well designed and allow me to "love" tracks on last.fm. Any takers?

Beta 2 released with hotkey/menu app, no longer requires dock icon to be shown.

I'll try it out to see whether it uses less memory than iScrobbler.

The themes provided with the beta are excellent. That and the program itself, I'd buy it but it's free!

I love this app! I think I like it better than coversutra since it has many different themes, and I could even create my own. I would have to agree with el cravito though on the icon in the dock.
