Tunes Notifier for Mac
The Spotify online music streaming service comes with a desktop client that allows you to manage your playlists and playback content without having to go through a web browser, but you still need to go back to the app to see the name and artist of the current track.
Tunes Notifier is a minimalist OS X status bar menu application designed to grab this info from the Spotify app, and push the data via the Notification Center. As a result, each time the track changes, you will be able to see general details about the song.
Simple OS X utility that automatically connects to your Spotify app
By default, the Tunes Notifier app places a small menulet in your status bar that will help you control its behavior: you can quickly toggle the notifications, and switch between the black and red, and black and white icon design.
What’s more, you can choose to disable the menubar altogether, in which case the app will act as a service, without making its presence know.
This is possible because Tunes Notifier automatically detects when you are launching the Spotify application and start listening to music: as long as both applications are running on your Mac, everything should go smoothly.
Unobtrusive software solution for viewing track details without going to the Spotify app
Listening to music online has become a fairly popular practice: instead of buying discs and storing the data on your Mac, you get to pay a monthly fee a listen only to your favorite songs.
The Spotify music streaming service is quite popular, but still lacks a basic functionality: you cannot see details about the current track without having to navigate to the app’s main window: Tunes Notifier is an unsophisticated OS X app designed to provide a simple solution for this issue.
