Sing It To Me, Baby!

304 6

If there’s one thing great about Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, it’s the introduction of Dashboard and Widgets. Mini-applications, some completely useless but fascinating, that help spice up your desktop. My boo introduced me to one useful one – Sing that iTune!

This widget displays lyrics for the iTunes track currently playing, along with its artwork, where available. There’s even an option to save lyrics in music files is also available. Fantastic! I’ve tested with some tracks downloaded from the web, and also ripped (legally) from my personal CD collection. Works like a charm. Highly recommended, this!

Some features at a glance:
– Multi-lingual (English, Japanese and Chinese)
– Handles radio streaming titles.
– Retry or search Google when the lyrics is not found.
– You can edit the lyrics right on the widget.
– iTunes controller. (Click the artwork to show.)
