iMote is a simple, elegant, and lightweight program for controlling iTunes from just about any application. Play/pause, change tracks, select playlists, adjust volume, rate tracks, and more using fully customizable hot-keys or a universal menu bar item. iMote includes a beautiful iPod-esque floating window, indicating current track information, and Growl support if you want an even more streamlined experience with your other Growl-enabled applications. Written using Cocoa, iMote is lean and mean, consuming minimal system memory and CPU time. iMote is the original iTunes controller.
iMote's menu gives you quick access the the everyday iTunes features you use, right from the menu bar. You can rate tracks, change shuffle and repeat setting, change the current playlist and more with just one click.
The coolest thing about iMote are its HotKeys. Say you're typing a letter to a friend in Safari or Mail, and you want to skip iTunes to the next track -- don't touch the mouse! Just hit a key combination and the track changes! The same can be done with just about any basic iTunes functions, including skipping back and forth through tracks, pausing and resuming, adjusting volume, rating tracks, and changing shuffle or repeat settings. All of these HotKeys can be customized to your preference.
The Floater is a great thing iMote provides for your musical enjoyment -- it's a floating window that shows you the current track's name, artist, album, rating, and album artwork. By default the Floater pops up whenever the track changes, a rating is set, or music is played from pause -- it fades away a few seconds later. Both the menu and hot keys also allow you to open the Floater on-command.
iMote provides some pretty straight-forward features, but it's also got some other neat stuff.
