    yeah

    I used coverflow as its own app. It uses the core Image off the GPU to do those cool effects. Its a great app in its own right, but slap in the middle of iTunes...it looks great! I wonder how they pushed it over to Windows though...

    Used to use it all the time.

    Wish I didn't delete it as it was superior to the way it has been integrated into iTunes.

    apple dont own coverflow, nor do the people that made the coverflow app. I have been using coverflow as a flex application for a long time and its clearly licanced by adobe. http://jennifersplaygroup.co.uk/?q=node/8 here is a link to my one using adobe flex.

    the technology was actually used prior in some very cool screensavers and iTunes visualiser plug ins, (google up iVisualise ) among which one which shows you a spinning CD with the album art of the playing song, and two CD boxes on which the artist name , album art etc is visible while they move on a glassy surface. really nice. :) It's called BEcomposed, and can be found at www.tazintosh.com
