Some clever Mac app developer came up with an idea to add a little something special to iTunes. A Think Different™ music player that does much of what iTunes does and a little more and encourages you to slake your music thirst with the little app called MUSIC Pub. Clever, no?
MUSIC Pub is an iTunes music player with a few extras.
It plays music from iTunes, and gives you standard Play, Pause, or Play Next or Previous controls. Yes, there’s a volume control and Repeat and Shuffle.
The progress bar lets you navigate to any spot in the song. And, it displays lyrics. But MUSIC Pub does a little more to justify the tiny price tag.
Notice the clever graphic controls? That’s the MUSIC Pub player.
So, you’re on Twitter but can’t think of anything to tweet about? MUSIC Pub to the rescue.
Not only can lyrics be displayed in a separate window, but MUSIC Pub is social and can send the title of whatever you’re listening to at the moment to your Twitter account.
There’s a built-in search function to find songs, albums, or artists. And, without firing up iTunes, you can create playlists and remove or add a song to a playlist.
Even better, the MUSIC Pub controls can stay on top of your Mac’s screen, and you can adjust the transparency. It’s a great way to remind yourself that music and beer go together like Bears and Bratwurst.
This one is nicely done, clever, and fun. It even updates song ratings in iTunes.
