TunesBar 2.0 released

Thoughtful Tree has published the second version of TunesBar, an extension for the Mac edition of iTunes. The app integrates into the Mac OS X Menu Bar, and displays the artist, album and song information for whichever track is currently playing. This eliminates the need to switch to iTunes to identify music, and can help reduce desktop clutter.

The v2.0 update adds several new functions, most critically the ability to customize the information display. Users can choose which data is shown and in what order, as well as font size. The interface has also been refined to match Mac OS X Leopard, and dims its text when iTunes is inactive. Basic playback control has lastly been implemented, enabling people to play or pause at any time. TunesBar runs on Mac OS X 10.5 or later, and costs $20.

    $20 for this? You can do more with the iTunes dock icon than this thing...
