Lyritop 1.8.7

A well-designed application capable of loading and displaying the lyrics and artwork of the currently played song on your Mac's desktop wallpaper
Music is part of our everyday life, we listen to music while we work or play games, during our workout session to get into rhythm or when we just want to relax and gather our thoughts.

Thanks to Lyritop, now you can also view the lyrics of the songs you are listening to directly on your Mac’s desktop wallpaper or on top of your Screensaver. By using Lyritop you can easily check the lyrics of a song without interrupting what are you doing.

What is more, Lyritop is designed to automatically search, download and display the artwork for the currently played song. The downloaded artworks are also embedded into the music file. This is a great feature, especially if you have numerous albums and songs with missing album cover or artwork.

It is worth mentioning that Lyritop is not capable to search and download the song lyrics from the web. In order for the lyrics to be displayed, you have to embed them in the iTunes’ music files first.

Lyritop is highly customizable and it can be easily configured to your fit your requirements with just a few mouse clicks. From Lyritop’s Preferences window you can set the app to display the lyrics on the Screensaver and hide or display the music controller. You can also hide or show the Dock and status bar icon and enable Lyritop to start at login.

What is more, the Position tab allows you to create and personalize the available profiles. The Settings panel helps you change the position, font, size, color, spacing and visibility of all items displayed along with the lyrics.

If you need an application that can display the lyrics and the artwork of the songs you are listening to via iTunes, than you can download and install Lyritop for free via the Mac App Store.
