A system-bar based music player for OS X featuring tempo changing options, an audio recorder and support for iTunes playlists
The main advantage of using an app, such as Jambox, is that it can play all you iTunes music without opening iTunes or any other app. As soon as you launch Jambox, it will automatically detect and display your iTunes playlists in a drop-down menu that you can easily interact with.
Furthermore, once you access a playlists, the available songs will be displayed in a track list. The song name, album and artist are displayed. In addition, you can view the song artwork and change the tempo of the playback from 1 and a half times slower to 4 times faster.
Unfortunately, playing songs is not exactly as intuitive as in other apps because double-clicking to play a song is not supported; in Jambox, you have to click on a song and then the Play button. Also, there is a slight delay when clicking the play / pause button.
On the other hand, Jambox features a standard audio recording feature for capturing external audio. The great part is that you can choose the audio quality (from lowest to highest) and the recording can immediately be played using Jambox. As for the settings, you are permitted to change the GUI color and choose what to display on the menu bar.
In a nutshell, the Jambox app is a no-frills music player for OS X. Although it does not really bring anything new to the table in terms of audio players, Jambox is a nice alternative to iTunes.
