This week we’ll look at freeware to go with the newly updated iTunes. I have tested all these on my system with iTunes 4.1, but that doesn’t mean they will agree on yours.
Here’s a no-brainer. Upgrade to the latest version of iTunes and enjoy the newest features. If you’re stuck on a PC, at least now you can groove in style.
Start the day right with your favorite playlist in iTunes. iAlarm will also wake you up by reading news or weather headlines, a custom message or AppleScript. Simple and free.
The readme on this software was in French, so for all I know it could do anything. What I found it does well is provide a cool floating window that lets you control iTunes, including playlists that come up in a handy drawer.
This visual plugin displays images that correspond to songs, albums or artists. Best of all, Jacket will pop open your browser and help you locate a graphic that goes with your song. Once found, adding the graphic is as easy as drag and drop.
For those of you looking for cover art in a floating window, sit right down. Sofa downloads cover art from Amazon and displays it in a floating window on your desktop.
Now that you’ve enhanced a free app with more free apps, spend some money on tunes instead. Would you like a Pepsi with that?
