Scott Stevenson has taken another look at a program I am pretty much drooling over at this point-- Delicious Library 2.

Seven cool features of Leopard that might get stubborn friends to upgrade

There are dozens of little niceties in Leopard: like how Front Row now lives on my iBook (sans remote) and allows me to operate the thing as a sort of thin-client media jukebox (courtesy a Mac mini server). Or how Font Book now prints books of your fonts (especially nice for those non-techies). With...

With Apple emphasizing Cover Flow more and more in the new iPods, etc., the need for good quality album art is ever increasing. I know iTunes is supposed to grab art for songs that are in your library and the iTunes Store, but in my experience it hasn't worked that well. Fortunately, Josh Powell...

Should Apple have used Cover Flow in iPhoto '08?

TUAW reader o!ivier has posted a mockup to his Flickr account of how he believes the iPhoto '08 Events UI should have been designed. Seeing it as a more natural evolution of what Apple is doing with Mac OS X and their apps (iTunes, Finder in Leopard, etc.), o!ivier believes Apple should have...

Safari, meet Cover Flow

I'm not sure why eye candy gets such a bad reputation-- we all need a little beauty in our lives, and no UI designer should ever argue that a "cool!" factor is a bad thing to have, when you've already hit all the other bases. Cover Flow is a perfect example. When people made their wishlists before...

A reader of ours sends along (thanks!) two cool new podcasting features in iTunes 7.3.1 that I hadn't noticed yet. First and foremost, podcasts are now browseable with CoverFlow, which is awesome (and probably points to an eventual implementation of CoverFlow on the iPod, if speculation is your...

Swap full-screen Cover Flow and video in iTunes

Here comes the community at Mac OS X Hints with yet another cool trick which, in this case, should help us waste just a little more time in iTunes 7.1.1. I specify that latest version because this hint concerns Cover Flow's new found ability to run in full-screen mode: as it turns out, you can...

Coverscout 2.3

Coverflow is a really great incentive to get album art for all your tracks in iTunes 7, but surely you don't want to do that manually. Sure, iTunes can download cover art from the iTunes Store, but what if some of your music isn't on the iTunes Store? Enter Coverscout, which was just bumped up to...
