    Looking for a Widget or some type of program that will display iTunes info. In Vista sidebar I had one that showed album art, song, CD, artist, time and total time. It also had controls. I looked through the Mac Widgets but they are all primitive that I saw. Can anyone show me a Widget or program like what I want?

    Coversutra may help.... the one thing I didn't like about it was needing to have iTunes open for it to work which kinda defeated the purpose.

    Actually, its purpose is served.

    Straight from Coversutra's homepage:

    That's exactly what it does. It is most useful now with leopard with the use of spaces. iTunes in one space, then coversutra cover art + song info on on all desktops. Then you have the extremely useful hotkeys and search in the menubar. The search is as fast as spotlight and I actually use it instead of iTunes even if I'm in my iTunes dedicated space!

    This is probably the best app I bought for my mac. I use it everyday and the Album art on the desktop is just beautiful. Here's an example of what it looks like (my desktop):

    Okay, I never thought about using it like that. I would still rather have iTunes NOT open but I will give CS another try using Spaces.
