Don't worry, I'm working on making the album case resizable.

Can't say I like the recent apparently pointless and unnecessary changes that shrunk the album art ridiculously on both the desktop and the mini controller.

I have actually turned off my QuickSilver triggers for iTunes so I could use CS to do the same functions. It is much more integrated. Also the Growl notification with cover art included is a good leap over the last.fm clients notifications.

I was using TotalTunesControl, which is free, but it would use like 10% of CPU most of the time, and sometimes hang up with 70-80%, and often didn't show the favorites (which duplicated functionality I had with Hallon anyway)....so I downloaded the CS trial and it's been running at 0.1% of CPU. I think I'll buy it along with the rest of the new MacHeist bundle.

I got this as part of the MacHeist bundle this year. I am surprised by this app. I love having a dedicated search menu for my music (when i do a search for "landed" i get 40 results in spotlight, only 1 in coversutra) i also love the shortcuts f6 to bring the quick controls up, and the album art thing on the desktop... it's all super elegant, and really worth checking out.

To put it succinctly (and without trolling), just because a given app works for you doesn't mean it works for someone else.

I don't understand the appeal of this app. Just about everything CS does you can accomplish with Quicksilver for free.

Coversutra has the feel of an application that was made just for you. You click on a tab in the preference pane, and all the options you want are there, no more, no less. thank you. Great application.

I've been reading about CoverSutra for awhile now, but Synergy + Growl made it unecessary for me.

I purchased the MacHeist bundle which included CoverSutra, and now that I've given it a try, I'm very happy with it. Good job!

This is one of those applications that once you've used it, you'll love it. But its not a necessity.

Thanks. Just tried that and all is well.
