From the people who brought you Tangerine and Voice Candy comes a little Menu Bar item called I Love Stars. It allows you to assign a star rating to the song currently playing in iTunes right from the Menu Bar.
My first reaction when I read about the app was “It sounds handy, but, geez, like I need one for icon on my Menu Bar!” and sure enough, if you look at the screenshot at right, it does have a pretty large footprint…that is, until you turn off iTunes. The latest version of I Love Stars hides itself when iTunes is not playing with a very slick little animation. It even let’s you assign a half star rating by clicking on the last star.
I Love Stars 2.0 is freeware.
