Thanks very much! I'll be sure to give that a go.

May you please download version 1.2.1 from my website (http://coversutra.com/get/1.2/). This version accepts both the 1.x and the new 2.x serial numbers.

I'm sorry that you didn't received any reply from me. I always reply to support stuff like this so I guess either your mail to me or my e-mail to you got lost.

Yes version 2.0 is a free upgrade for existing customers. You should have received your new serial by mail.

Is Coversutra 2 going to be available to 1.2 owners?

Whats up with the hating? Coversutra is a nicely designed app, thats pretty low price and does what it says.

It always amazes me that people use Quicksilver to control iTunes. I love Quicksilver, and I tried using it to control iTunes - it's terrible! The plug-in seems to just be a pile of applescripts, and is an ungodly slow way to do things in iTunes. When someone is trying to talk to me, and I hit pause, I want it to pause now. Coversutra is quite quick at this. I couldn't justify the price before, but now that v2 has searching, I'll rarely even have to use the iTunes interface. That makes it worth the price to me. That said, the searching UI could use some improvements... IMO, it should behave more like spotlight, where enter plays the top hit. Also there should be a way to play album in iTunes instead of song (from the search dropdown) without using the mouse. It really is lovely software though - both visually and functionally.

Does this handle any cover art functions besides showing it in the display?

regarding 2.0: i think the whole point of growl notifications is so that applications don't have to have their own notification system, and everything looks standardized. and also, it won't show growl notifications when you, the user, change the song. only when it completes a song and then goes to the next song. i understand you can disable the coversutra notifications, but then you don't know what song is playing when you fast forward, except by listening. i'm sure the pretty graphics could be put into the growl notifications, and if you want the bezel style, you can have it in growl. but why force us?

and also: you can't select a single key as a hotkey, it has to have a modifier. i like to use the tilde key, personally.

until these problems are taken care of, i'll stick with totaltunes control.

I love CoverSutra. I bought it about ten minutes after I ran the demo for the first time. This program is basically the rest of iTunes to me.

Wow! Sophie, I am sorry, but 15 euors for a software that offers little feature over open or free alternative. I know developers have to live, but all common sense and market rules go against such products....

The screenshots looks really cool and it looks like there is a bit more than what Quicksilver, SizzlingHotKeys, Proxi, etc... can do in CoverSutra. You should start by rewriting the description to put that forward and try to make a difference in the features you offer if you really want to ask a price that high!
